We really loved our tour guide. She was knowledgeable, professional and fun to be around. We had two issue that cause the lower rating...1) I booked this tour through a tour booking agency. I paid in full and in advance for this tour. As our tour was coming to an end, I was asked to pay for the tour. I explained that I had already paid. What I didn't know was that my emailed voucher was proof of this payment. Nobody told me this. I was asked to pay for the tour, a second time resulting in a double payment. The GetYourGuide company never asked me if I had a voucher. They are the people who issue the voucher, so this should have been a question asked. Since the day of our tour, I have been attempting to get one of my two payments reimbursed. This return of money has still not happened. The other issue was pressure applied from private businesses that wanted to make a sale. The tactics used may be part of Turkish society...but it made us highly uncomfortable and it was not appreciated.

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.

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
