    Even though we had been to Ephesus before, this was one of the best excursions I have taken. Mutlu was interesting and informative and provided a different perspective than our previous guides. In addition, the included lunch was delicious.

    We booked this tour for the two of us for our shore day in Kusadasi from a cruise. Could not have been better ! Inan our guide met us at the port entrance with van and driver -Our visit to Ephesus was fantastic - he was very knowledable and it is definitely worth seeing the terrace houses . Lovely lunch as well Much more personal and much better value than he trips offered by the cruise company
