    The tour was exceptional. Our guide was fun, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the same tour to my friends and family.

    Most of the tour will be more interesting to anyone highly religious as it includes several "holy places." The ruins of the town are fascinating and the two-story library alone makes it a worthwhile tour. We're just not religious enough to appreciate the house that was deemed to be occupied by the Virgin Mary. Never knew Ephesus was even on the map before this tour. Our guide, "Top," was very knowledgeable and personable.

    Excellent tour. We really enjoyed Ilene and the driver "Cowboy"

    This was a fantastic tour and our tour guide, Zeydep, was absolutely the best! We would have loved to have taken her with us all over Turkey. Ephesus was the highlight of our trip and anyone traveling to Turkey should not miss this experience.

    It was a great day at Ephesus and surrounds. I had only used Viator for transportation purposes in the past (with good results) and tried my first excursion with them. I'm glad I did. Levent, our guide, was stellar and extremely personable...not to mention extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He was on time at the ship/port and getting going was a breeze. I and my companions totally thought the excursion was well worth it! The only thing I didn't react well to was the carpet business visit...but that comes with the territory in Turkey. I just should have spoken up in the beginning that we were not interested. Otherwise it was a great day and learned lots.

    Ilker was a very fun and knowledgeable guide. Ephesus completely exceeded our family's expectations, it's much more beautiful that we expected.

    We booked the private tour and was told it would be approximately 8 hours. After 4 hours, the tour was over. We had to pay extra money for our guide to take us another place for a few more hours. She was a good tour guide, but Viator disappointed us in to believing we had a guide for appriximately 8 hours.

    Our trip in Kusadasi was wonderful! Our driver was very nice and our guide extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She made our experience in Ephesus an amazing one- one we will certainly never forget! Lunch was delicious and the service at the restaurant incredibly friendly. Would recommend this trip to anyone! Our day in Kusadasi was a great one thanks to Delik!

    Our tour in Kusadasi was excellent! Our personal tour guide, and driver, met us at the port where the cruise ship had docked 15 minutes early. The driver was quite good -- and safe! The guide was exceptionally knowledgable and helpful. He knew all of the shortcuts, got us through all of the lines ahead of nearly all other people from three cruise ships. The guide actually helped "customize" our tour for our schedule. Our companions aboard the ship were jealous of the personal service that we received on our tour. Oh, what clean, beautiful and interesting cities are Kusadasi and Ephisus. What a tour! Bravo! A lifetime memory!
