We visited Ephesus in September 2011. We booked the deluxe tour including Ephesus, Dytima, and Artemis with Ephesus Deluxe based on Cruise Critic reviews. We were solely disappointed. Our guide, Mustafa, did not speak English fluently and was extremely difficult to understand. We were constantly trying to listen to other guides at Ephesus to learn the history. After our time at Ephesus, we spent several hours at a ceramics shop and carpet makers. Due to the time spent at these locals (read unwanted stops) we didn't have time to reach all of our other locations. This was honestly the worst day of our trip.

We booked online a one day private tour of Ephesus offered by Ephesus Deluxe tour ( www.ephesusdeluxe.com ) before we left for our East Mediterranean cruise. Our experience was less than desirable. First of all, we were promised a customized 7 1/2 hours tour; unfortunately, we were assigned a tour guide who picked us up from the cruise ship and brought us back in 6 hours. Secondly, we spent almost an hour listening to sales pitch from a carpet company during this 6 hour period. To top it off, we did not visit one of the key sites and the tour guide was on his cell phone frequently. We subsequently communicated this bad experience to the General Manager and received a 50% refund. Having said that, it was not about the money, because we were in the port for only a day and expected to deal with a reputable tour operator who would assign tour guides who have proven track record in providing top quality customer service. Needless to say, we were badly disappointed. Let the buyers beware is the lesson learned !!
