We are a group of six who booked a one-day tour with EKOL. We simply could not have been happier with the service or the price. Our guide was "Oscar" (can't spell his Turkish name). A key point I learned - that I wish I had understood for other tours - Is that EKOL provided a beautiful van, larger than... More

It is very difficult to top the wonderfully written and totally accurate review below that precedes mine, but I assure you that every word of it is true. Oscar is brilliant! I had been to Ephesus a number of years ago with my husband on a ship excursion and this time I opted to go with Ekol to see Ephesus... More

We arrived in Kusadasi by cruise ship on October 5th. Coming out of customs control we immediately found our guide Oscar waiting for us with a warm, friendly smile. As the day progressed, we came to understand why he smiles so much. Oscar truly loves what he does - to share his vast knowledge of the archeological treasure that is... More

Our tour guide was excellent - knowledgeable and went out of his way to ensure that we enjuoyed our day. We have used EKOL travel many times - Capaadocia, Gallipoli, you name it.....the people...

After a great experience with Ekol during a 2012 trip to Ephesus, I felt comfortable using them again for our trip to Istanbul, and I'm very glad we did. For our family of 5, they arranged airport pick up, one hotel night, a day tour of the city and transportation to the cruise port (which was later changed to the... More

Ekol assigned Oscar to us in Ephesus. I agree with the previous review 100%. He is very professional, well informed and courteous guide. His recommendations were right on point. We were a group of 10, 5 adults and 5 teenagers, and he made sure we all enjoyed our tour. Oscar had bought most of the entrance tickets in advance, which... More

Our guide Oscar met us bright and early at 8 am just outside docks. Although we booked a semi-private tour, we were the only 2 passengers booked for the day. We got to the Ephesus ruins before the hoard of tourists from the ships' tours, and were really able to enjoy the sights. Oscar was truly an amazing guide -... More

With the utmost attention to detail, Valentina Sayilir (Sales Executive for EKOL) made all of our requested travel arrangements. From airport/port transfers, pre and post-cruise hotels to a very detailed itinerary so that we would be able to experience Istanbul to the fullest, there was nothing left to chance! Our guide, Semih, and excellent drivers were responsible for making the... More
