Ephesus was great!

I read that Ephesus was a must see and after a little research I found Ephesus Tours. I read such great reviews that I felt confident when I booked a trip for my family and I, August 2. Gonca was our tour guide and she was fantastic, very friendly and very informative. My family and I had a great time. I would highly recommend Ephesus Tour!

Well worth the money

We booked a tour with this company after reading the many excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted a half-day tour that was better value than the excursions being offered from our cruise company, and also allowed some flexibility to accommodate the unpredictable whims of our young daughter (e.g., unexpected toilet breaks). This tour satisfied all of those requirements - and turned out to be the least expensive options in the end since our daughter was not charged a fee for the tour. We were picked up at the port at 7:30, which was perfect for arriving at Ephesus before the crowds and the midday heat.The tour vehicle was spacious, modern, and air-conditioned, and we received free bottled water - a nice touch. The driver was professional and competent and we didn't fear for our lives at any point during the ride. Our guide, Arzu, was extremely friendly, very knowledgeable, personable, enthusiastic, and spoke wonderful English. She knew her stuff. Visiting Ephesus with a private guide is the way to go - no need to wait for slow group members, and the tour can be stop and started as needed. Plus, entry tickets were pre-paid so we walked right in. Ephesus itself is amazing, and not to be missed. At the end of the tour, we received a nice/yummy lunch at the carpet weaving facility/ranch that others have mentioned in their reviews. Some have noted that part of the tour does include a demonstration of the rug weaving which also involves a sales pitch for purchasing rugs. This was not done in a pushy way, and it was easy enough to avoid purchasing any expensive rugs without feeling too awkward. However, the tour could be improved by skipping the tour to the rug weaving facility and just offering lunch on its own, or by making this stop optional (which it might well be if you clarify this beforehand), or by having the demonstration of rug weaving take place without any sales pitch involved (subtle or otherwise). But since the lunch was so yummy, and the guide and the tour itself so charming, the rug thing did not detract from the overall quality of the tour. All and all I would certainly recommend this company to anyone wanting to visit Ephesus.

Ephesus was brilliant. Best trip ever.

Amazing experience. Breathtaking. A brilliant guided tour. Make sure you take plenty of water and a hat. The tours usually allow about 2 hours in Ephesus but with travel allow at least half a day.

A Great Experience!

My son and I booked a full day private tour with About Ephesus (Ephesus Tours) for our stop in Kusadasi during our recent Mediterranean Cruise. We got an early start to the day. Our guide - Filiz Capraz - met us at our ship promptly at 7:30 am, and along with our driver we set off for Ephesus in a very clean, comfortable spacious vehicle. Ephesus and the other sites we visited were truly impressive, and Filiz' knowledge and passion for the history of the area was incredible.I am so glad that we were not part of one of the many large tour groups we saw as I'm sure we would not have learned nearly as much as we did. The entire day completely exceeded my expectations.

Great tour, did not like the unadvertised visit to rug showroom

I booked this tour for the first week of August and our guide was Attila. We had a private tour which included visiting a town called Sirince (skip this if your short on time as it is more of a small outdoor bazaar than anything else), ancient Ephesus, and house of the Virgin Mary as well as lunch. Our guide and driver were both great. The driver would literally run to open the door of the car for us and made sure it was always cold when we got in. He was also a safe driver. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and without him Ephesus would not be the same as he pointed out and explained many things we would not have noticed on our own or known what we were looking at. A guide in Ephesus is a must. The company gave us a very nice gift bag which I thought was a nice touch. My one and only complaint is that the included lunch was at a rug making factory/ showroom a very important detail left out of our itinerary. From what we figured out the rug company provides a free lunch to the tour company in exchange for bringing tourist there and after the lunch you are shown a demonstration on how they make the rugs and then lead into a showroom where you are pressured into buying a rug, none of which are less than $1,000. The rug factory is a very pretty place as it is on a ranch and the demonstration was also interesting but you feel guilty and awkward that you just ate a lunch they gave you and have to tell them no you don't want a rug. You are forced to hear the demonstration and cannot opt out. When on vacation this is something you do not want to deal with, not to mention its an hour you won't get back. The fact that this company did not mention we would go here was deceptive and I felt tricked. I would have rather not had an included lunch and paid for this separately and just went to a real restaurant and avoid this. If booking with this company keep this in mind because they take everyone to the rug place whether it is on your itinerary or not.
