From the moment we landed in Istanbul, we were met by someone to pick us up and transport us to our hotel. Within minutes, we were called by Asli to make sure everything was as it should be. Ahmet was our guide for the tour of Istanbul, Ephesus, Hierapolis and other spectacular locations and he did not disappoint. His gentle... More

My husband and I had the privledge to spend a day with Ahmet from Melitour. He picked us up at the port in Kusadasi and drove us to Ephesus, the Ephesus Museum, to his family farm for a gourmet Turkish lunch and then back to the port. This was a wonderful tour with so much information and guidance throughout the... More

We were picked up promptly from the port at Kusadasi and went directly to Ephesus. The ruins were incredible and our guide was terrific. We never felt rushed. His descriptions and explanations helped us to really understand what we were looking at. He was able to answer all of our many questions. We enjoyed a lovely lunch after at the... More

We were aboard a Windstar and booked a private tour for 5 with this company. We were met as soon as we walked off the ship by Ata and our driver. Immediately liked Ata and was impressed by his knowledge and passion. We started with the Virgin Mary house and then onto Ephesus. Ata was skilled at finding a shady... More

We took a Holland America 12 day Mediterraean cruise on June 3. The only tour we purchased was a tour with Melitours at Kusadasi based on a recommendation from the Rick Steves Guidebook to Mediterranean Ports. That was the best purchase we made! From the moment we met Nejdet at the cruise port until he dropped us off at the... More

We booked this personal tour directly through Melitour, based on a Rick Steves' recommendation. We were coming off a cruise and wanted a dependable experience in Ephasus with someone who could be trusted when we ported in Kusadasi, Turkey. We took care of the payment online months in advance and found the communication from the tour office was very good.... More

We were on a 10 day Carnival Cruise and decided to book a private tour in Kusadasi to avoid the huge busloads of people. We found Melitour through Rick Steve's book so knew it would be good. There were 4 total in our party and we were met in the port by Nejdet who took us to a very nice... More

My wife uses a cane and we found the cruise ship cattle call tours impossible. All we could do is try to keep up with the pace and we were miserable. However, we then used Melitour for Ephesus and Istanbul....OMG.........they are awesome....we were met at both ports by our guides and a private van......our guides were the following: Knowledgeable: Professional:...

We were recently on a cruise that stopped in Ephesus. After much research, we had decided on a private tour with Melitour. (I would encourage you, if you are on a cruise, to find your own private tours. The cost is much the same, and it is so much more enjoyable!) Our guide, Nejdet, was the most charming, informative and... More

Nejdet gave us an awesome one day tour. We visited Mary's House, Ephesus/Terrace Houses, St. John's Church, Temple of Artemis, and a carpet weaving center. It was a full day. Nejdet was so knowledgeable and very accommodating to our needs and requests. It was a pleasure spending the day with him. Kay
