Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent tour. From booking, getting immediate confirmation, and getting picked up at the port gates everything was very smooth. Dilan was our guide for the day and she was so friendly and passionate about everything we saw. After first visiting Artemis Temple we then visited the amazing ruins of Ephesus, and Dilan was brilliant in showing us every important part, and was extremely knowledgeable, and the tour was conducted at our pace. Lunch was taken at a beautiful and peaceful outdoor restaurant and was tasty and plentiful. A great day out, great value, and highly recommended.

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.

We had the best day !! We were traveling on Rhapsody of the sea & decided to find a local tour & we are super glad we did not book with the ship because they looked over crowded & were more money. This was a super personal tour with in a group of 10, excellent information & very funny. We got to see the Temple of Diana which was amazing. I would definitely book again & recommend to all my friends.. oooo and lunch was great too.

Very well organized and punctual. The itinerary was quite good and covered almost all places of interest. Also, it was flexible enough to allow us to take our time to absorb so much history attached to the site. The hotels and transportation included with the trip are top-notch, and we have a view to behold from our hotel in Kusadasi.
Finally, kudos to Ismail and Fatima for being fantastic hosts. Very Friendly and as they are from this region, they are well versed in the history of this place which you can feel they wear with pride.

Hassan was a great tour guide...very informative. He gave us interesting stories and we learned a lot from him! We booked this tour for our group of 10 people last minute and it was the best excursion from our 11 night cruise! I will definitely try to make it back there another time.

The experience started when Ismail fetched us from the hotel, very friendly fella with a comfortable, clean ride. We were transported to the ancient world of Ephesus, each spot having new and indepth detail.
He gave us time to explore by ourselves which was great! The tour was in no way rushed. Later on we saw the Virgin Mary's house and the temple of Artemis.
Lunch was amazing, a true authentic turkish experience.

I would definitely recommend this tour 👍🏽
