Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted right outside the port by Ahu, our tour guide to Ephesus. We were driven in a private vehicle to Ephesus and were given a thorough tour of Ephesus and the Terrace Houses. It was great to be able to see everything that Ephesus offered along with getting an overall descriptive narrative through Ahu. Ahu was not only a tour guide but she was very easy to speak to and made the tour fun for all of us. She even took us to a runway show which featured leather jackets. They were pricey so we didn’t buy anything but the experience was fun. I could have done without the rug shop but how the rugs were made may interest some. Overall, we had a great experience with Ahu and if we ever visit Turkey again we would be sure to look her up!
Ephesus is a place you must see if you are interested in roman ruins of history. It's amazing that so much is still intact in such a concentrated area. There is excavation still ongoing so there will be more to see as time goes on. The romans were amazing engineers. My tour turned out to be simply perfect. My guide (Mr. Riza) was a treasure trove of information. He has a great deal of knowledge of the culture and history of Ephesus and the entire region. The tour started out amazing and got better as the day went on. it felt as though I was walking backward through time. So many things to see. My driver (Mr. Burak) was right on time waiting for us at each spot. Great driver. Thank you both for a tour I will never forget.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour. We were in complete control of our day and how long we spent at each site. St John's Basilica was under renovation so we only visited from outside but we were taken to a muesuem nearby instead. Our guide Ahu was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed historical and religious explanations at each site. As this was a private tour we utilised the option of making additional stops (within the duration of the tour) and choosing any drop off point at the end of the tour en route our pick up hotel. Highly recommend this tour!
The tour in itself was awesome. An Christian Pilgrim should have this on their to do list. This is an under valued experience. This turned into a private tour, which I was told it was not going to be. The Thermal Hotel and the Resort Hotel were excellent accommodations. I wanted an option to stay in a cheaper hotel the first two nights. The business hotel was the low light of the tour.
A well organised tour of the 7 churches, a very knowledgeable guide, friendly helpful driver and suitable accommodation in the hotels. This tour is excellent value for the money with the comfort of knowing that should unforeseen circumstances arise and the tour had to be cancelled there is the guarantee of a refund. Highly recommended.
