Perfect way to see Ephesus in one day!
What an incredible experience! Our drivers were punctual and perfectly on time. Our guide was incredible! He took time to connect with each of us personally and gave wonderful explanations of each of the sights that we visited. Even though we saw many things in one day it never felt exhausting or too rushed. It was a perfect and beautiful day and one that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to see Ephesus in a short amount of time.

Excellent guide and worth it
We had a guided tour to Ephesus and Fatima was very informative and didn’t rush us at all. Other guides could be seen moving the groups along at a faster pace and Fatima took extra time to explain things. She gave interesting tidbits on cultural aspects too. Lunch at local place was fantastic, with special care given to vegetarians such as us.

day tour of Ephesus & surroundings with Best Turkey Tour, Ismail Kuscu
Nov 2019
We had a day tour of 7 hours or more with Best Turkey Tour (Iglesias Tour Turkey) beginning of November 2019. Our guide was Ismail Kuscu and he has a vast knowledge of Ephesus and its surroundings. He was patient and accomodating and knows very much the history of Turkey. We visited different parts of Ephesus like the house of Virgin Mary, temple of Artemis and Ephesus ancient city. I would recommend Ismail Kuscu to anyone wishing to visit Ephesus. Ismail is a great tour guide.

Well arranged, coordinated & with an excellent guide
Nov 2019
This was a small group day trip from Istanbul to visit Ephesus and several other sights around the Izmir area. Timely & comfortable pick ups and drop offs. Guide was excellent, engaging, informative a well spoken local of the area. We were served a locally prepared hot lunch - sumptuous & delicious. See the carpet weaving but skip the carpet showroom. We enjoyed the trip immensely - a long day though.

Wonderfully delightful
We were really glad and happy that we unknowingly landed up on a small tour led by Fatima, as it was booked through our hotel. This was the best part of our 2 weeks in Turkey, Fatima's knowledge of Euphesus history, makes the tour really delightful combined with her thoughtful and friendly nature made it awesome. Highly recommended. Thanks a lot Fatima for the wonderful time and wish you all the best 👍👍👍
