We are 4 Americans who booked a private Ephesus tour with Online Ephesus Travel. We arrived by cruise ship at Kusadasi last week and were met on time by our guide Turgut. We had a very comfortable van with air. As it was just over an hours drive to Ephesus, C condition, Turgut told us alot about Ephesus and its history already on the way to Ephesus. He spoke excellent English and we had a very nice day. We were lucky, as we arrived at Ephesus early, before it became crowldly, we also visited the Terrace Houses and were able to take many photos. It was not our first visit to Turkey but we had never got to Ephesus and we were really happy, Ephesus is worth seeing and I highly recommend your company to everyone.

Dear Hamza, first when I found your agency through the internet search, as well as some other agencies, I was not sure if I should do the tour with you, as your price was higher, but I was surprised by how quickly you were with the reply and your email gave a feeling of trust. The tour was very good from the very beginning - when the guide picked me up, he helped me with my luggage and I was astonishe to see a dianthus on my seat. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke very good the American English, it was also a surprise for me! Everything was just fine till the end of the tour. Ephesus is an unforgettable memory for me now, you are the best among many agents I met till now. Hope to hear from you soon!

We loved Ephesus so much, he marble streets and The library of celcus are amazing, don,t forget to look out for the footprint that directs you to the brothel. Your guide Kenan was fantastic, he explained us a lot, thus we got the most out of our visit. Everything starting from the car, guide, lunch was perfect. The price was higher then usual, but it was worth it. Thank you!

Hi! Thank you for a nice Ephesus tour! We enjoyed our time in Ephesus with our guide Kenan, he was very understandable due to the fact that my mam had problem with walking and we were rather slowly. Still we managed to see every sight we planned, Celsius Library and Grand Theatre are marvelous! The lunch was very delicious and we are very happy with our tour! Thanks

We just came a couple of weeks ago from our cruise (We were very happy with our ship Mariner of the Seas), and had a nice day in Kusadasi. As my wife has some problem with walking, we preferred to book a private tour to Ephesus. We would like to thank you for the perfect arranged trip to us: the guide was punctual, very helpful and understanding concerning my wife's health problems, he spoke English very well. We could walk slowly, no hurry. Ephesus is a worth seeing place, the Library and the Grand theatre are amazing.
Thank's, we will certainly recommend you to everyone.

It was our first time in Kusadasi and Turkey in general. We had our 30th wedding anniversary and I decided to make a surprise for my wife. I arranged the tour with your company and would like to thank you for it. Our guide Ebru was nice, always smiling and knowledgeable. We managed to see Ephesus, Mary House, the Basilica of St. John. At least we asked her to bring us to the Sirince village, we spent there some hours visiting the old church and mosque, having a delicious lunch, besides we bought some bottles of fruit wines there. We had a great day, my wife and me will recommend your company to everybody!

Excellent trip! It was so nice for us to get off the ship and have a private car waiting for us with our personal guide! We got the tour at half the price of the cruise trips besides we did not have to wait for people to load on a bus. We managed to see everything, the Basilica was great and the lunch was fantastic. Our guide Kenan was a super one and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this tour company to everybody!

I just want to say thank you for the nice tour of Ephesus we had some days ago. The agency, guide, car and the tour were perfect and were even over our expectations. I must say it was one of the best land excursion we went on during our 11-day Mediterranean cruise. Moreover the price was really good.

Thank you a lot, we had a great tour to Ephesus last day. We are a group of 20 persons having arrived to Izmir with MSC Mangifica. As we had only 6 hours time (you need about 2,5 hours for the way there and back), we wanted to see only the Basilica of St. John, House of Virgin Mary, Seven sleepers cave and the heap trash around Ephesus which is not visited so much as far as I know. We managed to visit everything in the limited time, our guide Nuri was super! We really enjoyed every sight together with him and we highly recommend to everyone visiting these great places in Ephesus and thank you for professional tour arrangement.

Hi! I just want to thank you for the perfect arrangement of our tour. Last year we were on the cruise and had a tour to Ephesusm thus coming this year again to Kusadasi we decided to see something else. Due to your recommendation we chose Priene Milet and Didyma tour. We really had a great day! We were only 5, 6 with our guide Kenan. He was punctual, flexible in the tour, we wanted to stay more at the Apollon Temple in Didyma. Besides his English was good and he was so nice spending the whole day with us.
Thank you again! We are planning to com enext year, this time by plane, I will contact you again for other travel arrangements!

I just got back from a Mediterranean cruise together with my family. This time we had a chance to visit Ephesus - a wonderful city! We used Online Ephesus Travel who were really great. They picked us up from the Kusadasi port and organized the whole trip according to what we wanted to see there. We managed to see Ephesus and its museum, we also visited hamam and the beautiful village of Sirince. They were very helpful and organized everything with our ship's arrival time, thus we had a fantastic day in Kusadasi.
Highly recommended to everybody!
Thank you again!
P.S. your new web site is great!

Dear Online Ephesus Travel
We recently returned from a Cruise in the Black Sea and had arranged for a tour to Mary's House and St. John's Basilica with your company for
September 9 when our ship, Nautica, of Oceania Cruises was in port. We were very pleased with the arrangements and the guide.
Unfortunately, I cannot recall the young man's name. But we were able to see what we wanted without being rushed.
Thank you for your professional business. We will be happy to recommend
your company to any friends who might be going to that area.

I just would like to thank you for the brilliant tour arranged by your agency. We had already had Ephesus tour with you 4 years ago, in 2006, and nothing changed regarding the services: always on time, well organized, friendly and knowledgeable guide and of course affordable prices. This time we have had Biblical Sites in Turkey tour and could visit some places in Turkey relating to Bible: Pergamum, Sardis, Pamukkale, Laodicea etc. We enjoyed it very much, thank you again and hope to see you later!

It was our first visit to Ephesus and Turkey in general and we were not disappointed at all, picked up on time we proceeded to Ephesus - a mysterious city, especially do not miss Terraces Houses with their beautiful mosaics! We also visited Ephesus museum located in Selcuk, I was excited seeing the Artemis cult statue there! Our guide was with us during the whole tour, explaining to us everything in details. It was a great experience for us, thank you a lot, we will recommend you to our friends going there next year!

We booked the Ephesus tour with Online Ephesus Travel (we came with Brilliance of the sea to the Kusadasi port). Our guide Emel was wonderful. We had a fantastic tour with her visiting the historic sites of Ephesus. Online Ephesus Travel has been recommended by others in some forums and that is how we found out about this company. We just want to add our praise and thanks them for wonderful tour and excellent organization!
We wanted to see some places not stated in the programs of regular tours, so they arranged it for us: we visited the church and house of virgin Mary, the seven sleepers cave, the St. john basilica, then we had a very nice lunch in a lovely village, in Sirince! I recommend this company to everybody!!

We had a wonderful guide in Ephesus. We returned some days ago from a cruise and we made a stop in Kusadasi. Our guide picked us up at the port and we drived in a air conditioned van with a private driver to Ephesus. There were 4 in our party but the van would have held 10 to 12 people. The drive is about 30 minutes from Kusadasi to Ephesus and we were given a lot of historical information along the way. The guide was Emel, and she was very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. We made stops at Mary's House, The St. John Basilica, The temple of Artemis, and the ruins of Ephesus. The Terrace Houses are also a stop that you can add to your itinerary. All entrance fees were included. She provided a wonderful lunch at a nice restaurant and we liked it so much. We spent the entire day (about 7 hours) with our driver and guide and had a pretty day at that stop in Turkey.
Thank you for your services, attention and help! I recommend you to everybody!
We had a wonderful time and would love to go back someday!

We have returned from a cruise holiday some days ago, one of our stops was Kusadasi -located not far away from the ancient ruins of Ephesus. We contacted through Internet Online Ephesus Travel, got the answer very soon and were impressed with their flexibility and prices. We were brought to the sights we wanted and did not have to follow the fixed tour program as many of excursions seem to be. Our guide was very nice, friendly, very knowledgeable. We made stops at Mary's House, The Cathedral of St. John, The temple of Artemis, and the ruins of Ephesus. All entrance fees were included. We spent the entire day with our guide and had a lovely day. We highly recommend Online Ephesus Travel team.
Thank you very much!

I recommend Ephesus tour definitely to everybody! Ephesus is an ancient city, It was one of the best protected ancient cities of western Asia. It become an important tourism center because it is a holy place to visit for Christianity. In the first year of Christianity, St. Paul and St. John (Hojanna) came here and wrote the Bible here. Ephesus was the most famous city in Western Anatolia in the Ionian period because the Virgin Mary lived here in her last years. The bible was written here, council meetings were held three times and the first 7 churches were established here. Next year we will do the 7 Churches tour here! Thank you a lot to our guide!

The Ephesus tour is really amazing. One of the things that was really important to me was to connect the places we visited to events that take place in the Bible. In the book of Acts it is written about an event in Ephesus. It describes a situation where a crowd of people filled the stadium and started crying that Artemis was the great Ephesus god. I was right where this event took place! Besides we had a perfect guide very knowledgeable in religion and history!
Thank you a lot for the tour! It was great, we will be back next year.

This is an extremely well preserved Greek and Roman port city. In my view, this is better than anything in Rome because it is so complete with all aspects of life in their times. Do not miss the Celsius Library. On a practical note, it takes two to three hours to see the site. You will get the most out of it if you use a guide since they will tell you about the aspects of daily life. The site is not shaded and it is hot. Go early (light's better for photos anyway), wear a sunhat, and carry water. No restrooms once you enter. It is a popular tourist spot, so I suggest you go here first and then drive the short distance to the House of Virgin Mary. Shaded and quieter, it's a good place to reflect on what you've seen. Thanks for everything.. We will come back again very soon... We highly recommend online Ephesus travel site for Ephesus booking..

A well organized Ephesus tour. A trip that would have been very difficult to organize by ourselves. We had a fantastic, very informative guide, who was easy to get on with. A great insight into Turkey. Thanks for everything.
