    My wife and were on a cruise. Our fantastic tour guide met us at the port terminal and we were off to Ephesus. She helped us steer free from the crowds and gave us a great overview as well as showed us a few hidden gems in this amazing location. The winery was a great experience. The wine tasting was fun and the lunch there was truly world class. This tour was the best part of our trip! We would do this again without a second thought.

    What a fantastic tour!! Our tour guide, John, was waiting for us in port as soon as we disembarked the ship. He was extremely knowledgeable about the ruins at Ephesus. With this being a private tour we were able to tailor the tour to our liking and having visited Ephesus on several occasions previously John gave us insights into the more day to day activities that would have been carried out in the city and how the archaeologists had worked this out from the evidence they had found.

    The trip to Ephesus was followed with an outstanding wine tasting and lunch at the 7 Sages winery. We were guided round by the owner who also conducted the wine tasting. The wine was delicious and we brought a few bottles home with us and they tasted as good at home as they did there.

    I would whole heartedly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do something just a little bit different in Kusadasi!!
