    Hello, i’ m Pedro, i travelled By my dele un october 2022. the experience with this Tour was quite pleasant, interesting and fun. the tour very interesting, in particular ephesos An incredible place to discover, full of history and culture. The guide was always very friendly and entertaining, with many interesting things to contribute. Lunch was very good and the experience of seeing how Carpets are made by hand was interesting. Perhaps the only weak point of the day was the wine tasting, I expected more of that. Overall very good experience. I would recommend her without a doubt. A very good experience when it comes to tours in Turkey. Have fun and Enjoy this tour.

    Overall good trip. Driver came to collect us half an hour earlier than agreed. Met the Guide Nizam in Seljuk, who was good and competent with his wide knowledge of Ephesus and the Maryamana house. Lunch was great. Afternoon places included Carpet Weaving factory, savoury shop, village tour with possible wine tasting, which was nice but was unexpected and not called for. .

    We were a group of four adults and we all really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Nizam, was informative and fun. The house of Mary is in a lovely shady mountainside and the Ephesus site, which is quite expansive, was very memorable. There is an option to zip line on the way to Sirince and our lunch midway was tasty!

    Tour definitely worth to attend! Tour guide Nizam easily aligned with energy of the group and shared important historical information in a very interesting way. Lunch was good and we've tasted local delicious food and fruits. Regarding the Ephesus, its magical and seeing at one spot many religions and cultures coming together was amazing! House of Mother Mary, Temple of Artemis worth to see once in a live. Shirince village's story and sightseeing was great and interesting as well! Moreover, we've attended local carpentry and ceramic's showrooms. Most importantly, at the of the day after seeing this many interesting places i was happy, not tired, and with memories to tell everyone.

    Ephesus is an unforgettable experience. I was also surprised by Mary's house location. It is a very beautiful place with lots of trees and birds singing. Very peaceful. Sirince was not actually a tour, because we just saw the houses that they show in the photos here and tried different local wines at a store. We tried as many wines as we wanted, though. It was nice. I bought two bottles because of the weight and space in my baggage, but there are many different options. The guide was super funny, knowledgeable and fun. However, there were three moments that I felt were planned and he made them look like a 'coincidence'. First, he offered for us to have lunch at a place where the food would be homemade and tastier than the regular restaurant, but that place ended up being next to and /or owned by a weaving company where they took us after lunch to sell us carpets and jewelry. The second moment was when he took us to a ceramic school because it was "too hot" or there were too many tourists where we were going next (I do not recall the reason), and again it was all set up to sell ceramic. I do not mind going to those places, but I would like to know in advance.

    Insgesamt sehr gute Tour mit lustigen Reiseführer, der auch auf individuelle Wünsche eingeht. Praktisches Fahrshuttle inkl. Klimatisierung. Mittagessen lecker und reichlich. Worauf ich persönlich hätte verzichten können war der ca. 1 Stündige Aufenhalt nach dem Mittagessen, bei dem nach einer kurzen Einführung über das traditionelle Gewerbe der türkischenTeppichweberinnen (durchaus interessant) Teppiche und Schmuck zum Verkauf angeboten wurden. Das war in der Programmbeschreibung so nicht aufgeführt. Ich persönlich hätte diese Zeit stattdessen lieber in dem schönen Dorf Sirince verbracht, das aus meiner Sicht mit dem kurzem Aufenthalt (der quasi nur aus einer Weinprobe bestand) etwas zu kurz gekommen ist. Sirince hätte bei ausreichend Zeit zahlreiche Möglichkeiten zum Entdecken, Spazieren und Fotografieren geboten. Daher bei der Bewertung 1 Stern Abzug für die ansonsten super Tour.

    Best tour I've ever been on. Totally worth the money our tour guy was so nice and knowledgeable! This tour had so many stops and we got to see so much! Definitely would do again!

    It was a small group tour and Nizam our tour guide was very nice with a good sense of humor. He Interacted with us all the way and we shared quite some personal experiences together. The ride was comfy. He added in two extra experiences not on the iternanry which was pottery making and carpet weaving which was quite insightful. The lunch was quite basic, simple and light which was good for the travel. Although we stayed a little far from the starting point a taxi was arranged from our hotel to the pick up point. He provide adequate information through the entire tour. He also recommended a zip line which he could arrange if informed in advance. This was one of the Ephesus tour in which we found the house of Virgin Mary experience in it included. I recommend this tour only because Nizam is simply the best at what he does.

    We bought a tour from the hotel, the tour was wonderful Ephesus old town was just amaizing. Our tour lady was absolutely amazing, so funny and experience. She telling us the amaizing stories about the place. What was where, who use to use it, what was for. Everything we touched and saw was just amaizing. The whole experience was unforgettable. To visit House of Marry is extra 200 Turkish liras approximately £26 for a couple. Is worth to see if you are around. You can buy a candle for £0.60 and put your wishes on whish wall. Beautiful experience.

    A lot of fun! I did this at the last minute for the next day upon my arrival in Izmir. My tour guide, Nisam was very knowledgeable and friendly. Transportation to and from the hotel was safe and secure. Highly recommend this tour to future travelers!
