    We visited the house of Virgin Mary before proceeding to Ephesus. The information provided by our guide, Görkem Yologlu took us back to the times when this ancient City was busy. Görkem created so much interest in his explanations and made the visit quite memorable. Hats off. Long live Turkey 🇹🇷

    From the moment we set foot in this ancient city, our guide Görkem’s expertise and passion for Ephesus shone through, transforming the tour into an journey back through centuries. Görkem was very knowledgeable and friendly and we had a great time exploring the ruins of the ancient greek civilisation. Would definitely recommend this trip. Make sure to bring a hat as the sun can get quite harsh and there aren’t many shady areas.

    A informative tour of Ephesus given by our fabulous guide Raife. Her knowledge of ancient times and her ability to communicate that knowledge was outstanding. She paced the tour to our interest and stamina, providing the appropriate amount of facts and human interest mixed together. Thoroughly enjoyable!

    Oz was an amazing tour guide, very nice and sociable, knew much about the history of Ephesus and Turkey. Made our tour personalized to our interests. Extremely convenient to have a private tour with our own AC van, especially with busy crowds. Felt safe. Overall, great tour.

    While most Americans are uncertain about Turkeys politcal stability as a tourist, I can assure you that all those fears are unfounded and with the help of our Wonderful guide Engin we discovered Turkey in several dimensions. He gave us all great insight on the history of Turkey and the dinamics with surrounding countries through the centuries. Engin is a super attentive and caring man. We had a chance to his little Jr and my kids had a blast. Engin helped us coordinate many different activities and manage the change of plans super nicely. I not only recommend Turkey as a great destination with awesome food and drinks super nice and receptive people to everyone but Engin as a wonderful attentive guide for anybody's tour needs within his entire country. His knowledge not only of the history but the geography furnishes tourists with a great vivid image of Turkey then and now.

    Ich habe es diesesmal mit mehreren Freunden gebucht und mehr Details erfahren über Ephesus, das Wiedersehen hat sich also gelohnt, zumal der guide war echt klasse mit seinem Humor, er hat uns ständig bei Laune gehalten. War auch vieleich so das wir ihn fast alleine hatten, zu mal zu dem Zeitpunkt nicht viele besucher dort waren. Nochmals besten Dank! für alles... das nächste Mal werden wir definitiv wieder kommen um andere Sehenswürdigkeiten zu erblicken. Best regards von den anderen Freunden...

    We have the same gushy, positive comments to make already offered from other reviewers, but in this case about mrs. Gokce. Also about her company Turco Tours. It seems they are very consistent on service quality. Our guide Engin entertained and educated us for a full 4 hours after we arrived Kusadasi port. His knowledge and passion about Ephesus held in high esteem by our group. Also the experience with pick up service at Kusada port, then the luxury minivan they provided for us were impressive and positive. I recommend turco tour company to everyone.
