        Interesting places with lots of history!
        The tour was very interesting and enjoyable. Azer who was our guide, was very kind and well prepared. She had a lot of knowledge about the history of the attractions and leaded the group with a smile. Thanks a lot!

        Efficient and enjoyable
        Superbly organised, efficient and enjoyable. Spent 2 days with Crowded House doing tours from Kusadasi to Ephesus and the House of Mary, and to Pamukkale and Hierapolis. Our guide, Mert, was very knowledgeable and a really nice guy. The small buses were clean and well maintained with very good, safe drivers. I strongly recommend this company. The only downside was having to visit shops so it's necessary to just go with the flow and enjoy that too.

        The white terraces were amazing and so was the old amphitheatre. Mert our tour guide was fantastic, He was very knowledgeable and really engaging and balanced our time at each place. He was also very patient with some challenging people on our tour!

        Ephesus tour from Kusadasi
        Mert was an amazing guide! We thoroughly recommend using Crowed house as they made learning about Ancient Turkish history.

        Our tour guide Azer is very much accommodating & entertaining to all of us. I learned so many historical whereabouts on the places covered by the tour. It’s a great opportunity for me to experience this s tour since I don’t usually get ample of time to go on a trip. Ali our driver is also very great! Thanks for having me!

        Well organised (overall)
        Did two tours with them (one of Ephesus and the other of Pamukkale). Both were well-organised and seamless. Our guide in Ephesus Moharim was very knowledgeable and caring of every individual in the group. The driver Sali was also very good and careful. The tour to Pamukkale however was not as informative. The guide left us to explore some of the sights of Heirapolis on our own (which was fine as different people in the group would have wanted to spend time differently in the different sites). However, a little more information on the various sites in Heirapolis would have been better.

        Amazing Ephesus with a big letdown by a shopping stop
        Good tour pace and organisation with pick ups and drop off. Morning was amazing. Afternoon was not as good because forced stop at a leather shop that was quite pushy on getting you to buy their stuff at an absurd price which triggered my Istanbul PTSD. Totally unrelated and obviously intentionally made for getting people to spend extra money. The Sirançi village at the end was alright but compared to the rest of the ancient ruins, it seems like another place for getting tourist to buy stuff although much more local. I would be happy to have the tour being just Ephesus and Virgin Mary with no lunch included.

        Please take out the shopping
        Why only 3 star, well to try and get this company and all the other tour companies to cut out this stupid shopping/demo stops. We want a tour of the sites!! we wasted over an hour on a leather shop and tourist shop which could have been spent at Ephesus on the parts we missed out on. This was not on their itinerary. Please tour companies wake up and take these pointless unwanted stops off your tours. lunch was also very average poor buffet. ... rant over On a positive the majority of the tour was excellent, our guide Cigdam was great she was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun, I would recommend the extra site of the terrace houses it costs 200Lr ( free if you have a museum card) but well worth it. overall, I would recommend this company

        Good experience
        It was such an wonderful experience! Our guide knew everything and he speaks English pretty well. We wish we had more time in Pamukkale to explore the city of Hierapolis (we had only 2 hours of exploring) but we totally understand that it's necessary to visit stores because of the trustability. The only bad thing that we didn't like was the food. The restaurant was terrible as an "all-you-can-eat" system. So, an advice, bring some snacks. ;)

      I am very excited about the excursion to Ephesus. The excursion lasted 6 hours. Plan your entire day. Everything was very punctual, we were picked up straight from the hotel and went to Selcuk. From there it’s on to Ephesus. In Ephesus, the guided tour lasted 2 hours - this is only Ephesus itself, the guide, of course, was with us for all 6 hours. The guide is very good and speaks excellent English, he explained everything very thoroughly and interestingly. His name, if I'm not mistaken, is Muharrem. Before Ephesus we were in the house of the Mother of God Mary, and then at the ruins of the Temple of Artemis of Ephesus. A wonderful day, full of impressions. If you are in Izmir or Kusadasi, then this excursion should be a must in your program. Thank you very much.

      We really enjoyed our tour around Ephesus, our guide Ozzy was informative and very friendly to chat with! Considering the travel between sites, I would definitely recommend a tour over doing it yourself. The ruins were beautiful and we had time to explore by ourselves.

      Great trip to one of the best-preserved sites! The tour guide, Mert, was highly knowledgeable, well-informed, and engaging. He managed to show us all the different areas of Ephesus, providing the right amount of information with enough details but not an overkill. A must-visit place!

      Mert was my guide for the trip. I can say without hesitation that he was the best, most informed, friendliest and funny guide I've ever had. If you are interested in the sights, going with a guide makes the experience so much more valuable. The value is great because it includes the ticket fee and a nice lunch buffet.

      Ephesus. Just for the historic thing I chose this trip. Mainly for the library. But after visiting there.. No words to describe. One has to be physically present there and feel the things with their vision to understand how it really feels. The guide plays the key role who always keeps the energy up. Thanks to Mete. He made the things great. He explained everything clearly. I felt happy, overjoyed and emotional all together for making this trip. It's the best. Ephesus is a wonderful place to visit. More worth.

      Ephesus was a revelation of ancient history and amazing architecture and was brought to life for us through our great guide Mert. He was engaging, very knowledgeable and managed the group really well.
      The Virgin Mary House was a special place and I was very pleased to have visited.

      We had a fantastic time. We were so glad we went with a guide. Muharrem was so knowledgeable, funny and professional. He had an immense knowledge of Biblical, Jewish, Muslim and pagan history. It was a fascinating day. But hot. So bring a hat, sunscreen or even an umbrella.

      Mert is an excellent guide, with considerable knowledge, personality, and ability to keep his group on track. Ephesus has been on our bucket list for awhile and Mert did not disappoint. So happy we had him as our tour guide to teach us and guide us through a magnificent historical and archeological adventure.
