This tour was money well spent. It was just as advertised & most enjoyable. The rug factory was really interesting too & they did not pressure us to buy. Noah was our guide & he was excellent! - informative & fun - Recommended.

I have read many books featuring Ephesus but even they did not prepare me for the wonderful tour experience. You could feel the history as you walked through the town. To see the remains of all the buildings and facilities I had read about was awe inspiring. A truly memorable tour conducted by a wonderful guide.

It was a great excursion with a terrific guide
November 04, 2023
This was one of our favorite excursions on the trip. John, our guide, was very well spoken, knowledgable about his history, friendly, funny, and charming. He made sure to answer all questions we had. He is a winner for sure! The ruins of Ephesus were fascinating to see, but a word to the wise: you had better be able to walk well due to the slippery nature of the ancient roads and the geography of the area. John, our guide, kept us all together and explained much of what we were able to see. We also were able to see a new you-are-there type video, which just opened recently. It was interesting and well done showing us what the area once looked like. Afterwards, we went to a carpet factory to watch a woman weaving and then a carpet display with explanations by the owner. After that viewing, we were given a nice lunch outside with wine and soft drinks. It wasn't rushed, and we were able to interact with some fellow travellers.

The tour of Ephesus was eye opening! So much revealed of this thriving community. The special glasses were an addition, but still need more work and better technology to be truly special. The lunch and oriental rug making experience were terrific! A very worthwhile excursion.

Great Guide But Virtual Side Disappointing
October 05, 2023
The guide we had was full of information, however the virtual side of it was a little disappointing, the images kept disappearing off the screen and there were only a few places we used it. This part of it didn't really live up to our expectations

Amazing Tour

Nuh was an amazing tour guide, he was very informative and gave great details regarding the area and Ephesus. We were in a small group which was a nice change and the visit to the rug making location and lunch were such a nice treat. Would highly recommend. There were definitely some steep, uneven, slippery areas at Ephesus especially the marble sections.

Yunus and Irem gave us an excellent, personalized tour. They listened to why we were interested in Ephesus. I'm so glad we chose this tour which included the glasses to give us a picture of what was! You could tell they love doing the tours.

Wonderful Guide
July 11, 2023
We had a wonderful guide on this tour. Very knowledgeable. Small group was a perfect size. Allowed us to get in early before the crowds and really interact. Guide convinced me that a longer trip to Turkey is a good idea. For me, the virtual reality component did not add much to the tour. Not necessary.

Noah was very informative and kind. While visiting Ephysis was fascinating, I found visiting the rug making factory the most interesting. There is quite a lot of walking at Ephysis, on the very uneven turf, so if you're not steady on your feet, this is not for you. Highly recommend this fascinating piece of history.

One of the best tours my wife and I have taken in over thirty sailings. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and highly personal. Tour included the use of VR glasses to see what structures actually looked like in ancient times. This small group tour was greatly desirable over cruise ship large tour groups. Highly recommended this company and tour guide.

Tour was amazing. Our tour guide (John) was very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable . The virtual reality goggles added a lot. Lunch was lovely. If it wasn't for the high pressure Turkish rug sales my rating would be excellent.

Our tour guide, John (Can), is the best tour guide ever! I would rate this tour 10 stars if I could. John was so knowledgeable about the history of Ephesus as it was in Biblical times, and the 3-D glasses that depicted several of the ruins as they probably looked 2,000 years ago so enhanced the experience. After the tour we drove to a rug factory and enjoyed a delicious Turkish lunch and were then given a tour of the rug factory to see how these extraordinary works of art are made close up. We then got to see several of the finished rugs The rug factory also supports the women in nearby small villages who make these rugs. I can’t wait for the prug I bought to arrive, as it will serve as a treasured reminder of our wonderful visit to Turkey and making the acquaintance of John and learning about him, his family, his faith, and his country. Thank you, John, for a truly memorable and blessed experience!

Amazing Ephesus!

Our guide, John (but not spelled that way) was excellent. He gave us lots of interesting information and always found a shady place to talk to us. The glasses were amazing as we could see how buildings may have looked originally. The pace was good and the whole tour was very enjoyable.

Best Ruins
July 29, 2019
This tour was amazing, including our tour guide, Can (John) who knew so much about history, the Bible, mythology, and Turkey. The ruins were the best we'd seen outside of Pompeii. The video glasses help you see what the place may have looked like. There is some walking involved, but it's all downhill. After Ephesus we went to a Turkish rug factory where we had a delicious lunch outdoors, then a demonstration of rug making and sales presentation. There was no pressure, and we would have bought one if we had that kind of money, because the quality and workmanship is outstanding. Highly recommend this tour.

This was not a bad tour, although the time spent fiddling with the glasses only to see a still photo of a building could have been used seeing more of the site. I think maybe I expected something different. We did not really see the arena close up which was a disappointment. Having said that we enjoyed a wonderful lunch
