My husband and I were collected bright and early by Fatima and her driver Ismail. We had the best day, exploring the ancient city of Ephesus with excellent information from Fatima. For lunch we were taken to a little family cafe where we watched our delicious Gosleme being made. Afterwards we visited an ancient mosque and also saw a demonstration of carpet making. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Fatima and Ismail and highly recommend anyone to join them.

Booked a day trip tour from Kuşadası to Ephesus and had a lovely experience. Everything was well arranged from booking to pick up, we had no trouble what so ever.

Our guide, Fatimah was knowledgeable, friendly and warm. She was very passionate about her country and it’s history which is infectious. Highly recommended to anyone searching for a fun and insightful trip to Ephesus.Thankssss 🙂

We were on a private tour of the ruins and saw the sights that we wished to see. While the ruins are in need of a lot of reconstruction which is still going on. The city must have been amazing in ancient times. There are two entrances to the ruins and it is best to start at the back entrance near the Odeon so that one is going downhill as opposed to going uphill. Be prepared for large tour groups of a certain country who act as if they are the only ones at the sight and will walk if front of you while taking a picture and also stand at one sight blocking it to take multiple selfies while other people are waiting

May 18, 2019

Fatima did a great job with our group! She knows her history and she is great with people. Friendly and knowlegable! I would encourage you to book a tour.

We went to see the remains of Ephesus, a Greek town that flourished along the sea. Most of the structures are still in good shape even though Ephesus suffered great damage after a strong earthquake. The sea, however, has receded by many kilometers.

The key structures here are Memmius Monument, Temple of Hadrian, Agora, Hammams, Celcus Library, Odeon, and Temple of Artemis.

Please go there with a guide truly enjoy this ancient town.

The marble paths are a joy to walk on. They are very slippery though. Tread carefully. It’s better with an audio guide or real guide. The audio guides were not available to rent when we went. Luckily, I had downloaded an audio guide on my phone.

June 22, 2019

June 25, 2019

Excellent tour, excellent team, I am so glad. Thank you everyone:)

June 27, 2019

It is most logical to devote a day to the ancient city of Ephesus. Because Ephesus has the best examples of architecture from different periods. There are too many structures to visit. The House of Virgin Mary, Unique works that witnessed the early Christian period, Artemis Temple etc. It offers a unique accumulation of religious history that is still standing today. Also Selcuk did a great job!! Dominate the region’s history, friendly person. Thank you for all. Highly recommended Top Turkey Tours company. 🙂

Very happy to see Ephesus Ancient City. This tour has taught me a lot. Hoping to learning and more sightseeing in Turkey. Thanks for everything. Especially guides. 🙂

July 9, 2019

Everything was gorgeous. You can see cats in Ephesus. I love it. Also don’t forget to take hat because the weather is so hot.
Best regards to guide who is Selçuk. He doesn’t see you as money or customer and he help us every moment.
Finally I advice that before going to Ephesus, search there and also read some article.
Thank you so much everyone

July 18, 2019

I think it’s a must see structure. This structure an important symbol of Kusadasi and Christians. Don’t forget to take your camera. I would recommend it was very nice hope see you again top turkey tours 🙂

Excelente Tour, nos fueron a buscar a tiempo, buen vehículo, y la explicación en buen español
Lo recomiendo ampliamente
En Turquía te llevan a ver sus artesanías eso quita un poco de tiempo
Si te gusta este tipo de visitas dile al guía que si quieres o si no te gustan explícalo
Ese sería el único detalle
Los turcos son gente muy amable
Disfruten su viaje

Ephesus is a ‘must see’ historic place to be visited. One of rarest historical sites in the world. Hosts the home of Virgin Mary.It is just wonderful the history and to think this was all underground for thousands of years it was wonderful to see.

The Ephesus tour was truly the highlight of my short trip in Turkey! Such a beautiful ancient city to visit. The house of Mary and the Library of Celsus especially were amazing sights to see.

Epheseus is a large area but our guıde way of narration gave us a comprehensive knowledge.Turkey is such a beautiful country a mix of Western and Eastern cultures so modern yet clinging to traditions.
When the tour ended we felt in awe of the region and also of the guide who made us feel that way. A true guide can really change the perspective of a place I realized. Thank you from your Indıanfriends..
