See the Ephesus sites that interest you on a full-day, private tour that’s fully customizable. Work with a private driver/guide to create the perfect itinerary, from the ancient city of Ephesus to religious sites, traditional Turkish villages, colorful shops, or cooking classes. The duration of this private tour is up to you, and it includes round-trip transport in a luxury vehicle from locations in Kusadasi, Selcuk, and Izmir.
Start the day at a time that’s convenient for you, meeting a private driver/guide at your cruise port, hotel, or at the airport. With expert local knowledge, the guide can help you plan a day of exploring, choosing only the places that appeal to you.
If you want to explore Ephesus’ ancient history, head to the Greco-Roman city that’s now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and see excavations that include Roman baths, theaters, a library, and temples. Many of the artifacts from the ancient city of Ephesus are now at the Ephesus Archeological Museum, where exhibits feature statues, frescoes, and art.
Take in the area’s biblical history at the Basilica of Saint John and the House of the Virgin Mary, or see the remains of the Temple of Artemis, once a “Wonder of the Ancient World.” Food lovers can sign up for a two-hour “lunch and learn” experience at the Selcuk Cooking School, and there’s a lifetime of water parks, beaches, parks, and scuba diving for outdoors enthusiasts.
At the end of this flexible day in Ephesus, your guide will drop you off at your original departure point.

Our private guide Ilker, was excellent. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, he was fun to be with. My husband and I had been there twice before, but he was by far our best guide. He made suggestions as to places we might enjoy, but definitely took us to the ones of our choosing. Thanks for a great tour!
A great private tour of all the cultural sites! A personal driver and van took us to all of the world heritage sites and more! Metin Y. our guide was extremely nice, knowledgable, and attentive and answered all our questions and then some! A perfect day!
