We enjoyed a fine day with guide Hakan and a driver. Pickup/dropoff in Izmir worked well. Guide gave us "free time" at all the sites so we could look around at our leisure. We especially enjoyed the lack of crowds during these virus days.

Everything from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we were dropped to our hotel, was nothing short of great.

Volha our guide and The Captain (driver) were always dedicated to make our experience very pleasant.

She was very informed and took the time and dedication to guide us through every place we visited.

we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves, and really enjoyed this tour.

Our tour guide - Mehmet and personal driver Chef was amazing. Not only was Mehmet very knowledgeable, he was also very patient with my family (esp my dad) who asked a million questions repeatedly about the history of the sites we were visiting!

I really enjoyed our trip in Kusadasi/Tour of Ephesus/tour of the house of Virgin Mary. Mehmet was a very informative, excellent guide who really made sure we understood what he said and made sure we were on schedule for the tour. He also delivered the history of the places in a very fun and concise way. I also commend “Chef” for his safe driving and his warm smile. Overall, 11/10 I would go for this trip again. :)

I had a perfect day on my private tour of Ephesus. I filed lengthy review praising my guide and the Company on Trip Advisor. And for some reason they do not see it. When I pull up my reviews it is there. So in short, FINE TOUR IN ALL RESPECTS- HIGHLY RECCOMEND!!!!

This was an amazing tour. We started out to a visit of the house of Mary, got to try some Turkish Apple tea, went to see Ephesus, then the temple of Athena, then to a wonderful all you can eat lunch (but not a buffet, they brought individual plates) that was very reasonably priced (I don't remember exactly but I think about $5 a person). All of the tour, Hakan was giving us great historical information about the sites that we were seeing. Definitely worth it to go into the terraces at Ephesus. We ended with a short tour of a carpet making factory next door. We told them coming in that we did not want to buy any carpets, and it was interesting to see what goes into the carpet making. Overall, we loved our one day stay (cruise ship) in Kusadasi/Ephesus, highlighted by this tour.

My husband and I went on this tour in June. It was an informative, well paced day and I would highly recommend it to anyone! Ephesus was incredible and our tour guide was outstanding. It was very hot there with little shade, so I recommend a hat and cooling towel. The guide provided us with umbrellas to protect us from the sun as well. The driver was excellent and we felt safe at all times. The homemade lunch was hands down the best food we had on our trip. The carpet making demo was interesting. Overall great intro to this region of Turkey! Highly recommended!
