Know More about this tour

The Ancient City of Ephesus
Ephesus was once one of the largest Roman Cities of the East and once played host to being the Capital. The well preserved marble ruins used to house over 200,000 people almost 3,000 years ago. Today you get to visit the highlights of the old city in the Odeon, the Great theatre, the Celsius Library and the Temple of hadrian.

Temple of artemis
Today all you can see still standing of the Temple of artemis is the large marble columns that used to hold up the temple. The ruins now sit within swamp lands that over time have taken over the area. The Temple is known as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and you get an idea of its majestic beauty from what remains in the sculptured columns capitals and shafts.

House of virgin mary
Located on top of Bulbul Mountain the House of Virgin Mary is said to be the last place that she lived before her ascension into heaven. It is now a very important and popular place of pilgrimage for Catholics. Situated on top of the mountain it offers you wonderful views over the below lying area.

Isabey Mosque
The Isabey Mosque is a wonderful example of the Seljukian architecture. Its interior is carved and decorated beautifully and a masterpiece of its time. There is an inscription to God that decorates the main doorway.

    The trip is actually half a day. I would have given it a 5* if at the end of visting the beautiful historical sites, we weren't miss lead into visiting a leather shop, carpet manufacturer, jewelery maker and pottery shop, then pressured into buying products. This was labelled as Arts and crafts.

    My parents and I did the tour of Ephesus with Marcy as our guide. Marcy went above and beyond for us when we had an unexpected change to our travel plans. She is a true gem and made it an experience to remember. Apart from her lovely and caring nature, Marcy was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the history of Ephesus - she has good sense of humor too. I would recommend going on the tour with Marcy. She is the best tour guide we have come across - 1 of a kind!

    Marsy did a great job explaining the story which is eye opening for us from far here. Who said history cannot be fun!

    Marcy was our guide for the day. She is an OUSTANDING GUIDE!!! She has incredible knowledge, has a fun way of telling a story. We had a super duper day in her company.

    This trip to Ephesus and the Virgin Mary's home were some of the highlights of my trip to Turkey. Transfers, guide etc. were professionaly done, bus was confirmable and lunch was really good. The big downside of this trip was the stops at a carpet showhouse and then a leather showhouse where the items were been forced on you and were very expensive. If i had want to buy a carpet or expensive leather jacket i would go to the shops myself. if these stops were deleted from this tour i would have given this 5 out of 5.

    I travelled around europe for 3 weeks with my mid-70s parents and older sister. Turkey and capadoccia was our last stop so we were a bit travel weary when we got there. Not to mention it was the height of summer so the heat was considerable. Marcy, our guide though, was equal parts entertaining, informative, and sensitive enough to each member of the group's needs that the qe just thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour. Highly recommend this tour and their group to anyone intending to go ephesus and pamukkale. 5 stars all the way.

    Excellent small group trip with an excellent, knowledgable English speaking guide. It was a long day, well cramed with things to see and do, the main event being Ephesus. We also went to a carpet making factory and was given a was given fashion cat walk to model leather made into beautiful jackets. To break the day up, we had a lovely outdoor lunch on the lawn at a local restaurant.
    As I said, Ephesus was the main event and it did not disappoint, covering a vast area, as we walked among the ruins, given knowledge as we went. A well spent £35 for all of this, including a pick up and return to the hotel.

    We flew from Istanbul to Denizli airport to spend two days in Pamukkale and Ephesus area. Transportation was arranged by the company for pick up to take us to Pamukkale, where we joined with our group. That evening, we traveled to Kusadasi, and the next day we toured Ephesus and the surrounding area. Our Guide was Guray, who was just excellent. He took time to explain everything in detail. He connected with our family and had a very good personality. His English was very clear. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Pamukkale (aka Hierapolis) Ephesus, and Artemis temple. He answered our questions with patience and gave good advice about prices in the area. I would highly recommend Guray (our guide) to anyone who is planning to take this tour. The company had arranged good transportation and was hassle free round-trip. Then we left from Izmir to Istanbul at the end of the trip.
