My wife and I did a private Ephesus tour with a fantastic tour guide, Arzu. We pre arranged everything easily over email prior to our trip and pricing was very reasonable. Because we were staying in Istanbul, we flew to Izmir just for the Ephesus tour in one day. Arzu and a driver (in a very nice new van) picked us up straight from the airport no problem and returned us at the end. The drive to Ephesus was about 50 minutes but went by very quickly as Arzu was extremely knowledgeable and told us so much about the area during our drive. We saw the House of the Virgin Mary, Ephesus ruins, and the temple of artemis prior to stopping for an amazing family style lunch at a local rug/textile school. It was so awesome. I highly recommend bringing an umbrella during the summer because it is quite hot and no shade around Ephesus. Also, we had stopped to purchase a very nice bottle of olive oil, but be warned that the jerks at the Izmir airport wouldn't even let us check it and we had to throw it away :(. Anyways, amazing tour guide and experience!
