My husband and I came to turkey for Honeymoon and we started in cappadoccia And will end in Istanbul throughout our trip we have had various tours all of which were wonderful but this trip took our breath away. Our tour guide’s name was Ali Tanriverdi ( I highly recommend you ask for him by name) and he was amazing, he explained everything wonderfully dealt with all our questions in a highly professional and charismatic manner. I would definitely take another tour just to have such wonderful hospitality and service.... truly added beauty to the whole Turkish experience. His English was great, he negotiated prices for us and was patient funny and hospitable. 6 stars to our guide and our driver who was very lovely too. P.S Ephesus is an absolute must see

Everything went perfectly, the guide was great!, the driver and the van were great. Picked up on time, we went the few kilometers from the hotel to Ephesus. The only thing not included in the price for our small group of 4 people were the entrance fees, which is understandable given the inflation in Turkey. The prices rise practically every week. Everything worth seeing was not so crowded at that time, so that we did not have to queue anywhere and there was no crowd at the respective places.

Our guide, Marcy is a warm-hearted passionate woman. She is a great storyteller, so as we were touring, we could envision the ancient places. Ephesus is really worth going with a great guide.

Tour is excellent. The guide is very knowlegable and accomodating.

Overall I had superb Ephesus tour. The guide Ali is excellent. His in depth explanation of the historical facts let me fully enjoy the tour. Very entertaining. Highly recommended.

This is probably the best tour I had during my stay in Turkey. Our guide Marsy was so informative and entertaining, made the whole tour a great experience.
