Private Shore Excursion: Ephesus, Terrace Houses, St. Mary House, St. John Basilica
, Dec 2019
Excellent. Highly highly recommended.
Just only two of us. The tour guide Ayse she was great and very pleasant. She did a great job. The van was very nice n comfy. Also the terrace of houses is a must see.
The tour itself was great and recommended. We had a problem that the company used by Viator they didn't had a reservation for us, but after much talking it worked out. Make sure you take a copy of your paper work provided to you by Viator.
Olgay (OJ) met us at the dock as promised and started our day describing the history of Ephesus, Turkey. We traveled through the countryside and took an improvised stop at a cool place for authentic Turkish coffee and Turkish Delights before checking out the Seven Sleepers. Our tours to St. John Basilica and Ephesus were fabulous as OJ shared tons of detailed history and biblical stories. The extra tour of the Terrace Houses was another highlight of Ephesus. Then we stopped for a delicious lunch at one of the best carpet making destinations and watched the ladies in action before trying it ourselves (and there was no pressure to buy anything). Next we stopped for olive oil and tea. Then we capped off the tour with a visit to St. Mary's House, a truly spiritual place. OJ knew everyone and everyone truly loved her as she always helped other guides throughout the day. It was wonderful to see how much she knew and cared about Turkey, its history, culture, and people. Loved it!

I was picked up on time from my hotel by a tour guide and driver. The car was spacious and comfortable. I talked with my driver about what I wanted to see and she tailored the day to my requests. Her knowledge of the area and culture was second to none, whilst also being so friendly and kind. I was also left to my own devices throughout the day so I could explore at my own pace. This truely exceeded my expectations and really made my time in Cappadocia. I highly recommend this tour, whether you’re alone or with family or friends.

Private Layover Tour from Istanbul Airport & Hotels
From $147.14 (Price varies by group size )
Excellent use of layover time
, Jan 2020
Pick up at 8a from airport and return by 5p. Ride very prompt and nice new vehicle.
Salih Batkin was excellent. Lots of knowledge, friendly and paced sites effectively.
Definitely a great time, I highly reccommend to others.
We were able to schedule our tour between 1 of our 3 layovers in Istanbul. The first 2 were less than 4 hours so we shopped at the airport but during our return flight we had an 8 hour layover.
Don't forget to get your VISA. CASH ONLY but I think you can do it online, we just forgot!
We wasted an hour getting out of the airport. I also think the 7am pick up time is the earliest you can start your tour.
None of this impacted our tour. Once we were escorted to our driver, we met up with our tour guide & the time we wasted was a thing of the past. Our guide was AMAZING and very accommodating. We had no idea what to expect to see in Istanbul but this pit stop fit in well with our primary trip to Israel and Egypt. Don't ask why...LoL
Had an excellent tour with Mr Salih. Everything was smooth sailing from airport pick up to drop off. Mr Salih was attentive to my requests and constant need for caffeine. He has a great sense of humor and is very worldly. He kept me entertained throughout even though I was severely jetlagged. I really appreciated that there is none of those detours to random tourist gift shops, so the hours are spent solely on important things.

, Dec 2019
I can not recommend this tour enough! It was the best tour we had in Istanbul not only did Furkan feed us some wonderful food but he took us to some of the coolest local areas in Istanbul that we would have never found on our own. Furkan was an amazing tour guide not only knowledgeable but he genuinely came across as truly enjoying his job and wanted us to get the most out of Istanbul and not just upsell us. If anyone is hesitant, don't be this tour is extremely worth it....I only wish we had used Furkan for our other tours of Istanbul!
