  • FOR CRUISE GUESTS / We highly recommend you to meet at port after 30 / 45 minutes your ship docked to port in order beat crowds / school buses and hot weather in the afternoon. It is better to meet early to have a better tour in Ephesus before the crowds. Advantages of Our Private Tours Instead of Group Bus Tours - It might be your first and only one time in Ephesus. Do not lose this opportunity that may come once in your life time. - You do not have to stop your tour if one fellow gets ill or fell down in big groups in the ruins. Because, the guide of the big groups has to care with this person. Your tour will come unbearable although it might be your only day in Turkey. - With a large group, you are dependent to their schedule. But in a private tour, you do not have to follow any of the program, you decide what you would like to see, when you want to start and conclude your tour. Because this is your own private tour, you are the boss and you decide to everything. - In large groups, sometimes tour guides skip the most interesting details in a sight because it might be impossible to show it to everyone in a large group. - In a private tour, you do not have to wait all the group with too many people who have different interests, try to take a picture of everything and usually stay behind the group. - If you can not hear the guide in a large group or you fall behind because the pace is too fast, you are just out of luck. - In a private tour, while visiting the ruins you do not wait for a long time in lines to get ticket or get into the ruins or museums. Because your private tour guide will make everything ready for you. - In a private tour, you do not have to share your guide and Mercedes Van with many people, because you will have your own van and expert local tour guide.

We couldn’t ask for a better tour. We arrived to Izmir and looked for a tour to Ephesus online. We found there web page and contact them. They answer back very quickly and send us a super clear and detail explanation of the tour and prices with now hidden fees.
Next day the picked up us súper puntual at hour hotel in a super nice van and with the best guide for Ephesus that you can find.
We highly recommend this tour. You won’t regret it.

I had booked this tour for February 2022. Unfortunately our cruise will not be coming to Ephesus now and we had to cancel. Elif was very gracious about the cancellation. Hopefully we can get to Ephesus another time. Will definitely book this tour.

We were in Turkey with a group tour and we decided to book this private tour of Ephesus. It was amazing we had our private tour guide the entire day to take us anywhere we wanted. My husband hurt his finger so the tour guide even took us to the hospital and did all the communication for us. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a good experience.

Erkan was the best tour guide ever! Totally listened to what we wanted to do and then gave her suggestions. The driver and vehicle were awesome also - very clean. When visiting countries with so much history and culture, it is important to get a tour guide that is knowledgeable - we definitely found this!!! And she was fun while still being professional. She even arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered to us for a birthday celebration… above and beyond. Would definitely recommend this tour and this tour guide to everyone! Thank you for the memories.

Our tour guide Ayse and our driver were great. We were able to see Ephesus including the Terrace Houses, House of the Virgin Mary and the Temple of Artemis. Aiya was a great guide and was able to tell us all about Ephesus which was amazing. She was so helpful and informative about all the sights as well as about Turkey. I would highly recommend her and Private Tour: Best of Ephesus Tours.

Epheus Port Tours (direct booking name) provided an exellent tour of the Ephesus area. We went to the historical sites, toured the Firca hand made Quartz and Ceramics facility (a family operation since the 16th century), saw the amazing process of spinning silk and making Turkish rugs at a local Co-0p, and enjoyed a fabulous lunch at a Turkish outdoor restaurant. Ender was an EXCELLENT guide and spoke perfect English. His tour inspired us to plan a trip throughout Turkey with Ephesus Tours sometime in the future.
