I was really impressed with Fatma’s level of knowledge and care for the tour! Fatma provided great context and information when viewing ruins as well as answering any of my partner’s and my questions about the site. Lastly, lunch was delicious and definitely not a place I would have found or thought of on my own - another benefit of this tour. Bonus tip: Fatma provided us with plenty of free time at Ephesus to do our own additional viewing - I highly recommend paying (85 TL as at October 2022) for entry to Terrace House 2 which has some fantastic mosaics as well as providing some idea of current archeological work ongoing at the site.

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.

Turkey isn't, just about history of Ottomans and their rich exploits. Indeed, this land has been a cradle of many civilizations and all of these are so intricately and sublimely woven that no matter how well read you are, you will still need a guiding hand to connect your missing dots. Well, Fatma our guru on history of Ephesus and other surrounding historical sites, related a beautiful story on each monument, especially her conduct of Ephesus tour was riveting, she never missed a rock or ruin to bring out their significance. Must say, me and wife were very satisfied with all your arrangements. Stay blessed Fatma and other supportive staff feom Iglias Tours.

This was a fun tour. Fatima was knowledgeable and fun. She was also great in accommodating what our group of 12 wanted to do. The lunch she took us to was so delicious! It was at a quiet local restaurant that our group would have passed by if we didn't have her. The restaurant was also very accommodating adding a last minute addition to our meal because of a member in our groups dietary needs.

We went on a small group tour with Bugra and he was awesome! Very knowledgeable. We were able to customize the tour also. Would recommend for someone looking for a affordable tour that covers the top sites of Ephesus.

Ismail was an extremely well informed guide. He shared a lot of background info about 🇹🇷 Turkey that set the stage for the tour. First stop at the Ephesus home of the Virgin Mary was unique to see. Prior to Ismails explanation I did not know that Mary was revered by Muslims as well as Christians. The walk through Ephesus and guides information was good. It did seem like we were rushed however and passed by some of the things to see which were off the main path. The temple of Artemis was unimpressive. The lunch at the Turkeman carpet place was very good. As was the carpet making demonstration.

We booked this private Ephesus tour as we did not want to be part of a large group, plus wanting an individual experience and this is exactly what we got from Fatima. From the start she was welcoming and wanted to understand what we wanted from the tour, and she exceeded our expectations.
She was very knowledgeable, not only of the area we were seeing but the whole of Turkey. As there was only me and my husband, she knew when to step back and give us space to enjoy the amazing sites, she got the balance just right.
As it was only the 2 of us, we were able to customise the tour to what we want and how much time we want to spend at each place, at no time did we feel rushed or that she was watching the clock to get to the next place; she even went out of her way to get specialised olive oil for us.
Nothing was too much trouble, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

In preparation for our trip, Ismail learned all about our family’s interests and put together an excellent customized itinerary for us. We had an amazing Ephesus Tour with Fatima,having tons of fun and learning a lot about Ephesus Ancient city, life of St Paul and Mother Mary. Fatima also gave us great local restaurant recommendations and practical tips for shopping. if you’re thinking of a tour of Ephesus from Kusadasi Port , Best Turkey Tour team , Ismail & Fatima is right local experts!

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.
