Alex was a great tour guide. Even though the house of the Virgin Mary was crowded, it was beautiful to see. We especially enjoyed the Ancient City of Ephesus. The ruins are impressive and Alex told us about their advancements in engineering for such an old city. Lunch at a small Turkish restaurant was delicious and served family style. It was inexpensive but very good. Our final stop was to see how Turkish rugs are made. We enjoyed the demonstration and even purchased a Turkish rug!
Absolutely fantastic! Our guide was exceptional and I would recommend this tour to my friends and I NEVER say that :- I wouldn't mind having skipped the carpet tour at the end. While very interesting, the heavy sales pitch wasn't. Again - loved the guide!
Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide to Ephesus, Basilica of St. John and Temple of the Virgin Mary and history of the region. Guide had excellent recommendations on restaurants and shops.
Alex was knowledgeable and had a history degree for this area. He took us to our requested places. He was very reserved.
Our family loved the personal tour. Our guide, Alex, was well informed, very considerate and his English was flawless. We were impressed by Viator and the tours they provided. Would definitely use their services again.
Absolutely great tour with our guide Emri. He met us at the port as scheduled. Driver was friendly, bus was clean, AC worked great. We circumvented the crowds by taking the tour backwards from the cruise people. Emri new his stuff. Wonderful lunch at Agora. Highly recommend.
It was one great experience,and our guide EMRE was awesome.The driver VEYSI too.The tour was so amazing ,we felt like we were getting a special treatment.We would recommend it to everyone.
Our guide was great. I wish we would have had more time in this port. The tour was the best.
This tour was excellent and well worth the time and money. Our tour guide, Emre, was knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. It was very busy the day we went and it was quite convenient that Emre was able to get all our entrance passes in the tour guide lines. He also brought us to a wonderful out doors resaurant for lunch.
Our guide Emre was superb, as was the driver. Emre was very knowledgeable about not just Ephesus but the area generally. He listened to us and asked us questions and was able to answer all of our questions too. We were able to meet earlier as we were first off the ship and this meant that we got to our first stop, Mary's house, before the main crowds.
This is our second experience of private tours as opposed to tours from the ship- well worth the cost.
Thank you Emre for a wonderful experience.
