We appreciated our guide Ismail's knowledge of Ephesus and the surrounding sites. The visit to a rug weaver and show room was especially
interesting. We enjoyed our day and the door to door service. We recommend this tour highly.

This tour was excellent, our tour guide Ismail was highly informative and knowledgeable. He allowed us enough time to explore on our own and provided us with very interesting information about the sites we visited. St Marys House was peaceful and an absolute must- PS take a piece of paper and a pen to leave your message in the wall. The walk in Ephasus was like walking through history - I just wish that I could remember every story. It was a really hot day so I am sure this is an event better experience in good weather. The lunch was amazing and even though I am allergic to carpets, the visit to the carpet factory was very interesting.

The visit to Ephesus was great. It was a very hot day, so if going during summer time bring a hat and water with you cause there is little shade in the ruins. Car was new and travel was very flexible and accommodating of everyone needs. Both driver and guide were very professional. Worth the money. I would definitively recommend this, as the city is very well preserved and a unique mix of history and cultures.

An amazing place to visit an absolute must
Tour guide was ok
Take lots of water and a hat. No shade and on a hot day can be extremely hot. The reflection of the marble and stone make it much hotter.
Lunch provided was amazing. Only disappointment was being harnessed to buy a Turkish carpet. Salesman gather around like flies amd don't take no easily.

Great tour. A lot of great historical and religious places are placed inside 8 hours of the tour. Majestic ruins of Efes, sacred place of the Virgin Mary's House, lesson of the Turkish carpets manufacturing and two more ruined temples - Saint John's and ancient temple of Artemis - all these places leave great impression.
Tour coach has 10 places but we have only 5 people and that's great to have a tour for such a small group. Gokce was our guide and she's great.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to visit Ephesus

Orkan was our guide and he was fantastic. The limo van had a table and comfortable seats so the ride was enjoyable. Orkan was personable and knowledgeable. His English was good so it was a pleasure to visit on this tour. This visit was beyond our expectations. We had plenty of time to go on our own and while we shopped they all waited until we were ready to depart. You must take this trip on the sites were amazing and if you are religious this is one of the wonders of the world. I would highly recommend it.

It was a very smooth and pleasant trip. We booked the group tour, and it turned out to be only us 2. The guide Orkan is very nice and speaks good English, and the vehicle is new and comfortable. The tour to the carpet school was also interesting, though I found the price there is a bit high.

Wonderful tour. A must if in Turkey. If you are coming from Istanbul, book your own air and sign up for the tour from Izmir, it will save you a lot of money.

Visiting Ephesus was breath taking , the time there was perfect and the guide was very knowledgable . St. Mary's house was located in such peaceful surroundings . Seeing St. John's Basilica and his tomb was a perfect way to end the day. This is where he wrote his gospel . There is also a castle in the background to view from afar . The Turkish lunch we had was delicious , and I also enjoyed watching the ladies making the rugs . The beautiful rug viewing ,while sipping on apple tea was delightful as well. I really enjoyed the whole day !

My guide was lovely and knowledgeable, and the entire tour was well-planned, educational, and at a pace and with the flexibility that was much appreciated by our small group of 4. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends --from Kristin, Washington, D.C., USA, visited August 2015.

Pick up was prompt, everyone was very polite. Tour guide was thorough and made sure we each covered the things we wanted and offered many options of other places to see and allowed the time we needed to do what we wanted. Lunch was fantastic and the trip was worth every penny.

Tour was great mostly because our guide, Guler, is very knowledgeable. She took us to a non-touristic restaurant (usually a bad buffet) which was awesome. We finished a bit early with the tour so she took us to a leather store fashion show and it was hilarious! Way to end a fantastic trip!

Our tour guide was Phylis and she was wonderful! She was very helpful with arranging transportation for our early departure and she was filled with facts about everything from education to politics to urban legends. The tour was great and I would book with the company as well as with the tour guide again.

Ephesus is one of the best ancient towns to visit. There are lot to see - nice theatres and other building ruins and of course nice views over valley between hills. Tour-guide of Neon - Cigdem Göktas - led our tour in very nice way. With nice presentations of sites and friendly manner, she made whole tour group to feel good and welcome. Very good work! Guide also helped me to continue my travel forward to Kusadasi. Five stars for tour! This is a site that must be visited!
