This spectacular tour was almost cancelled by us, thanks to irresponsible media coverage. The tension between countries in the Middle East was nowhere in sight. Kusadasi was clean and safe. The ruins at Ephesus far exceeded our expectations. Our guide Tezcan was extremely knowledgeable, and was a good will ambassador for Turkey. In conversations with "Tez", it was obvious we had much more in common, than we had differences. This tour was the highlight of our Mediterranean cruise for this traveler.

This was our second visit to Ephesus. The first was 5 years ago. But we enjoyed it so much last time that we wanted to revisit. We chose the same tour operator because we were so pleased with the quality 5 years ago. We were not disappointed! Oscar was a wonderful tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and very patient. The weather turned a bit nasty on us with a downpour, thunder and lightening. Although we were drenched, it did not dampen the beauty and splendor of ancient Ephesus! Last time we were here the Terrace Houses had not yet opened. They are unbelievable! A must see! We had to tread very slowly because of the wet marble pads and steps. But that forced us to slow it down a bit and truly appreciate this awesome sight. Very pleased with this tour of Ephesus and would highly recommend Oscar and this tour operator. It truly is "the Best of Ephesus".

What a wonderful day! We booked the Best of Ephesus tour including the Terrace Houses (my favorite!) and flew down to Izmir from Istanbul for the day. Our guide, Zeynep, met us at the airport. The car was comfortable, and Zeynep had a driver so she could share information with us between sights. Zeynep was very knowledgable about everything we saw. She also knew the perfect spots for just the right pictures. It was efficient touring allowing us to see everything we wanted to and gave us time to wander on our own and absorb the atmosphere at Ephesus. We also managed to squeeze in a carpet making demo (and purchase) and a late lunch in Kusadasi before being dropped back off at the airport to fly back to Istanbul. I highly recommend this company and this tour.

We visited Turkey in October 2014 as part of a Celebrity Cruise that took us from Rome to Greece and Turkey. Before departing the US, I used TripAdvisor to locate a reputable company to arrange a tour. The tour company reserved the tour without asking for payment or even a credit card to hold it. This trust was not commonly found while booking drivers and tours in advance in Italy or Greece. Both couples (55+) were extremely satisfied with this service. We were met at the port in Kusadasi. Our guide Azer was personable and well prepared to share the history and current affairs of the country, and sites we visited. Her English was excellent. This was an escorted tour by air conditioned van with a dedicated driver, Azer, and the four of us. We visited ancient Ephasus, the Terrace Houses, the Virgin Mary's home, St John Basilica, and a weaving school. We were never pressured to buy or do anything and Azer was willing to customize it on the fly. The people we met were warm and Hospitable. Absolutely book with these people!

We would recommend Best of Ephesus Tours highly. We were 5 adults and a 8 month old baby. Our guide, Cagri was a very happy and kind person. His knowledge was extensive.
We did the highlights of Ephesus tour and we requested to have lunch at the best Turkish restaurant where the locals eat. We were taken to an incredible restaurant which was truly a culinary experience. It was so amazing that we will be returning next year whilst on our cruise trip.Cagri listened to our requests which made us very happy.
Also, I must mention the pre tour service. It was excellent from the initial booking with Elif right through to the arrival of our very clean air conditioned van. Booking on line was so easy (bestofephesus.com not to be confused with the similar named company ).When we arrived in Kusadasi we received a message from Elif advising us that our van was awaiting us and our guide was right at the exit point of our ship to greet us. Very happy customers !!!
