What people are saying about Izmir Province

Beautiful Ephesus

My daughter (11) and I had the pleasure of touring Ephesus this morning with Oguz. The whole experience was professional, relaxed and interesting. Oguz had a fantastic knowledge of Ephesus and navigated us around the summer crowds. His ability to convey information to myself and young daughter made sure we both enjoyed the historical side of Ephesus. I’d highly recommend

Our guide, Ahu, was delightful, her English excellent and her knowledge exemplary. We learnt a lot and would definitely like to visit Ephesus again. What a stunning place with so much history. The drive there and back was good too especially as we returned by a different route. It was interesting to see the agriculture and scenery outside Izmir. Thank you.

Great tour and experience

Great tour and experience of Ephesus. The tour operator guide assigned to us was very friendly, informative and accommodating. Loved the trip and would definitely recommend to everyone!

Excellent service

We were picked up by a luxury shuttle with our guide and brought back to our hotel. The guide was really expert and interesting to listen to. The place is marvelous! Thanks :)

The trip was very comfortable and very interesting with the Esther guide; Very professional and above all I loved that he will talk a lot about history. I recommend it
