Our group of six passengers had a terrific shore excursion to Ephesus, provided by istanbultoephesustours.com. We were met by Mehmet, our guide, at the port along with her driver and a modern van. We all fell in love with Mehmet, who was very friendly, courteous and knowledgable. Hemade sure that we saw all of the sites, provided us with a great Turkish lunch and went out of her way to ensure that we enjoyed our tour. The price was very reasonable! Great tour company!Read More
I thought I would write in and tell you about our recent experience at Ephesus with IstanbultoEphesustours.com.

We took a tour with Ephesus Tours on Oct 20 from Izmir. We saw the Artmis temple, the House of the Virgin Mary, and Ephesus in detail including Terrace Houses. Our guide and private Mercedes mini-van with driver were excellent. We learned much about the current culture in Turkey, the history of Turkey and Ephesus. We were not rushed at any time and our trip moved along at a good pace. We had an excellent day. We have taken many tours throughout the world and this was one of the best.

We cruised to Ephesus this August and arranged in advance for a private tour with Ephesus Tours. We had an amazing tour guide- Uygar Ates. Our family of five went in a modern, air conditioned Mercedes van with Uygar to the Ephesus Ruins and the House of Mary. Uygar was knowledgeable, fun and clearly in love with her country.

We were picked up right off the ship, got great information about the area, Turkey and the… Read More
