About
The tour will start with a drive to scenically wonderful coastal road before you reach the ancient city of Ephesus. The first place you will visit on this exciting tour will be the Virgin Mary’s House. Next you will visit the Ephesus ruins, predominantly from the later Roman period including the “Terrace Houses” located opposite Hadrian’s Temple. Then, your tour will continue to the ruins of the Basilica of St John. The Basilica had a cruciform plan with four domes along its longitudinal axis and a pair flanking the central dome to form the arm of the cross. Lunch will be served at a lovely local restaurant.

Superb!
Oct 2020
My guide, Begu, was superb.

Fluent English, knowledgeable, insightful.

Had multiple, in depth conversations in general about Turkey and Ephesus in particular.

If you are interested in learning the history and culture of this period, Begu is the one to ask for.

Nov 2019 • Family
We had an amazing tour of all 3 major sites via Kusadasi. Our guide Ibrihim was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We could not have been happier with the tour and the very nice lunch banquet that was included. We were traveling with 2 toddlers and my mother-in-law. Ibrahim was patient and thorough. We got to see everything. His explanations were thorough and accurate. He understands what tourists want to do. Very safe and comfortable. Amazing sites off the beaten path. Very fond memories, we are anxious to return.

very knowledgable guide
Jun 2019 • Couples
Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great tour, we were surprised that we were the only two people on the tour, we assumed it would be a small group tour. being such a small group it was easy to hear all the info and we could "modify" the stops a little since we weren't hungry right away. the meal was very good and the visit to the co op was informative. they did bring out carpet after carpet to show us he work (and try to sell us something) but weren't pushy as we live in Hawaii and have more of a tropical décor and the Turkish rug just wouldn't fit into the design
