We booked an Ephesus tour through About Ephesus, as a day trip from a cruise ship - NCL. The private car with tour guide was cheaper for the two of us than the cruise tour, yet turned out to be a much preferable way of seeing the sights.
Before the holiday, we were in good email contact with the company and so had planed what we wanted to see ready for the day.
We were met promptly by Ceyla Ergon, our guide, who was a lovely, friendly and chatty guide full of local knowledge. It felt more like being guided around with a local friend, which was ideal.
The day was planned well, and we were told of the plan at the beginning so that we could change anything if we wanted - not that we needed to! Everything was perfectly timed and we were back at our boat with no worries despite one of the roads being closed.
We paid extra to miss out on the typical tourist sales of rugs etc, and were taken to lunch at a lovely local cafe where we had a delicious and relaxed lunch. We were still given the option of turkish delight shopping, but we preferred not to go to the larger sales pitches so this was a good option for us.
The driver was very polite and the van was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Ceyla!
