Small group which makes a difference when visiting a large places and even though small group appreciated the hearing pieces from the group leader.
Yesim was interesting, informative and a wonderful guide. Our entire family enjoyed the day. Yesim made adjustments for our daughter's unexpected injury and wheelchair. We could not have seen ephesus on our own because of logistics and in hindsight we are glad we booked the day trip. Our three teenagers had fun and we were glad to hear Yesim explanations.
Thought it was a guided tour but all ok for independent tour guide gave good instructions was excellent to have pick up and drop off recommended
My husband and I booked a private tour of Ephesus while we were in port for one day. We didn't really like the tours offered by our cruise ship, so we opted for a customized tour. It only cost us about $20 more. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time on our tour of Ephesus and House of Virgin Mary. Our guide, Yesim, was so nice and a very knowledgeable tour guide. There were only 7 of us on the tour and we really had a nice time meeting the other people on our tour.
Love it ! Ephesus is simply beautiful. We had no trouble understanding our guide. Lunch wasn't fantastic but everything else is good!
This is good value for money, we were picked up and dropped off to the port. Our mistake was only taking the half day tour. Ephesus only needs a minimum 4 hour.
