    Visiting the Terrace houses was amazing we have been to Ephesus two times before the first just a general tour the second with the visual glasses and this time we went to the Terrace house I would highly suggest a private tour so that you can spend as much time in the Terry houses as you want. It was totally amazing

    The entire tour was amazing! We had been to Ephesus several times, but never to the Terrace Houses, so it was our goal to see the houses this time visiting Kusadasi. We were promptly met by our tour guide, Yavuz Morgul, at the cruise port and was escorted to a luxurious, very comfortable van. This tour exceeded our expectations! Yavuz was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and informative. Not only did we (finally) get to visit the Terrace Houses, we were able once again to visit the rest of Ephesus, Virgin Mary's house, and Artemis. This tour was better than all of our previous visits to Ephesus combined! Yavuz was attentive to our particular interests and questions, touring us at a comfortable pace and accommodating our needs. Lunch was delicious and relaxing, and we enjoyed local turkish cuisine. Without hesitation we recommend this tour, and in particular, Yavuz Morgul as a tour guide!

    We were on a cruise and had a limited amount of time in Kusadasi. This tour group was recommended by relatives that had used them in the past so we inquired about a tour. Curio Travel is professional, timely and courteous. They met all our expectations and customized our trip, thereby maximizing our time, We were met by a guide, at the pier, with our name on card. We had a spacious van to escort our family that was on a trip of a lifetime. Travelling with 6 adults and a baby can be tricky, and Curio Travel made us feel at ease. We would highly recommend them and would not hesitate to use them for future travel for ourselves.

    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.
