An Amazing day with Fatima from the start of the day to the end. She was a you to be with, knowledgable, and a wealth of LOCAL knowledge. We would highly recommend her to anyone travelling to Kusadasi. The various sights, lunch, and tours truly opened up our eyes to this wonderful region of Turkey. She got us back the cruise ship on time. If you are looking to have a enjoyable day hire her.

We arrived in Kusadasi on Windstar. Our guide Fatima met us right outside with our name on a sign. We travelled in a private van up to Ephesus. We received a well informed tour. The pace was comfortable, but wear good shoes. Our guide ensured we had water, hats and offered a sun umbrella. We went to a local restaurant for a meal cooked by local villagers. Excellent break in a comfortable setting.

We were met at our ship. Fatma was so knowledgeable as she guided through Ephesus she catered the trip to Make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. The tour to the blessed mothers house was our top priority. It was awe inspiring. She even took us off the regular tour so we could see Mary’s church. She took us to a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious. We saw how rugs are made and even how the silk is spun. There was no pressure to buy. Our driver was extremely competent as well. I can’t say enough about Fatma and best turkey tours. This is a wonderful tour guide. Don’t waste your money on the cruise ship tours. This company will give you a real value and experience
