We enjoyed a fantastic guide around a very interesting city - much more to see than we'd anticipated!
I cannot rate this highly enough. Our tour agent was fabulous. Kamil from Celsus Travel was unbelievably knowledgeable about all historic, religious and geographical events. A very considerate and polite man indeed.
The home of Virgin Mary was a very spiritual and moving place for us and there are insufficient words to describe Ephesus. WOW! WOW! WOW!
It was incredible to see and to hear about how the city was used by the people and to learn about the culture and life of the Ephesians. Still can't comprehend the enormity of the experience and how ancient this civilisation was and how we could appreciate it today.
Despite the intense heat and lack of shade dress accordingly to avoid sunstroke this was an incredible tour and another highlight to our cruise. This was our first visit to Turkey and the guide and the tour itself made a lasting impression on us leaving us with desires to return once more.
As an aside this was our first tour of our cruise and we had no idea what to expect and were worried about being met in the designated place by the tour agent but this was an unnecessary anxiety. I would not hesitate to book with Viator again as they clearly use reputable, efficient and reliable local guides.
The tour was great. I would highly recommend to others.
Based on the news, we were a bit nervous to leave our ship and venture out into Turkey. However, we were quickly comforted by our wonderful tour guide. He immediately made connections and welcomed us into his country. He as extremely knowledgeable and open to suggestions that we had. I loved to see the beauty of Kusadasi and Ephesus and the visit to the House of Mary was definitely the highlight of this tour as well as our 9 night Mediterranean cruise! Our guide was also very information with providing many biblical references and historical information. The tour of the Ephesus ruins was also very interesting and informative. I would highly recommend booking with Viator as well as Celsius Travel.
We had great experience with our tour guide Ata and driver. Both of them are fantastic.
