Reviews on Tripadvisor

From the moment I inquired about a Private Tour Hakan was responsive and answered all my questions immediately!! We were met with a big smile and a welcome by Nafia, I feel bad that I can’t remember the driver’s name because he was awesome too!! Anyway, Nafia spoke beautiful English with a bit of a British accent, very lovely!! We had the BEST time on this tour!! It was interesting, informative and so much fun!! We were so comfortable in our Mercedes Spirinter van. There were six of us and we all had a great time!! Highly recommend this tour to anyone, highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a really great experience!!!

We had a guided Private tour with Fisun and she was just awesome adjusting to our time with my boys and my mother showing us the wondrous sites of Euphesus, the home of the Mother Mary as well as temples and churches! She had a great pride in Turkey and his history - we missed the rug making experience due to the boys getting tired and wanting to return - but overall I couldn’t be more happy with the experience - great tour day - great price and 1 happy family!

What a great experience we had! Our tour started from our hotel in Selçuk in and air conditioned van. We created the itinerary and did just the experiences/tours we wanted with our incredible guide, Kerem. He gave us a good history of Ephesus along with fascinating etymological facts introduced during Roman and other ancient times. Ephesus was incredible, yet hot. St John’s was impressive. Ironically, our favorite thing he took us to what how they spin silk and so on until the making of a rug. The Temple of Artemis, as a 7 wonder, was also made so much better with Kerem. Hoping to tour again in the near future and would definitely book with this company. Also incredibly reasonably priced. Strongly recommend.

Hakan, the organizer, our tour guides and drivers were all wonderful. We we transported in clean and comfortable mercedes vans and enjoyed hearing lots of historical and regional information. We had plenty of time to enjoy the ruins and shop for souvenirs along the way. The local lunch spots they selected were great picks and I was happy to enjoy fresh and locally made cuisines. I highly recommend this tour company and thank them for making our trip so memorable and fun.

Was pleasantly surprised going here. Our cruise ship booked this and we had no expectations. The ruins were awesome and very extensive. Our tour guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable. I am glad we did it. It was about 1.5 miles to walk down from the top to the bottom.

I highly recommend Ephesus Tour Turkey and would definitely use them again. We used them in May 2022 for private tours of both Istanbul and Ephesus. We were a party of 6 making stops as part of a cruise. The cost was very reasonable and gave us more than our money’s worth. Unlike many previous experiences with on-line booked private tours, I got to personally speak with the coordinator Hakan, and it was immediately obvious he was committed to ensuring we had only the best experience in Turkey. It was apparent that both of our guides love their work and are committed to making Turkey come to life. They both were extremely knowledgeable and prepared to explain not only what we saw but beyond that, they wanted us to experience Turkey and to briefly immerse us in their culture, lifestyle, and people. There was a passion within Hakan and both guides that wanted us to experience Turkey and not just see beautiful building and fantastic artifacts.

We booked on-line and Hakan was very responsive and followed up with calls to me after booking to ensure we got what we wanted. We exchanged texts several times and he was proactive in reaching out to me to verify our reservation which put my mind at ease as Turkey had only recently reopened to cruise tourism. In fact, our ship was the first Celebrity ship to visit Turkey in seven years.

Bahar was our guide in Istanbul. She made Istanbul come to life by spending time explaining the culture and routine life in Istanbul as well as knowing the history and intimate details of the land, people, and landmarks. There was no question we posed she that was unable to answer. Hakan and Bahar both recommended using the tram as opposed to private vehicle and after viewing the traffic, this was obviously the right choice. We visited the major sites including Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque (currently undergoing major renovation/cleaning), Topkapi Palace, and the bazaar. Bahar ensured we not only saw but experienced Istanbul which really enhanced our visit. Lunch was included and offered options for picky eaters and presented authentic tastes of Turkey. It also was first rate.

Istanbul has a brand new, state of the art cruise terminal which only recently opened and we were amazed by its smooth function and streamlined feel.

In Ephesus, Nafia was our guide. We were met at the port by a new, 15 passenger Mercedes van with driver which made travel very comfortable for the six of us. On the short trip to Ephesus, Nafia explained the sites available to us in addition to Ephesus itself and we chose what to see based on our interests. There were two marvelous surprises inside Ephesus. Near the Hercules gate, we were met by a professional photographer whose services were included at no additional cost and he followed us and took photos of us which Hakan sent us the day after the tour. Nafia’s recommended we visit the Terrace houses which took about 90 minutes and was an extra cost of about $5 per person. The Terrace Houses turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire vacation. If you go to Ephesus, ensure you take the time to visit the Terrace Houses as these are as good or better than Pompeii and Herculaneum (plus they are covered). Lunch was also included on this day which also offered options and was phenomenal both in terms of flavor and providing a real feel & taste of Turkey.

Again, I highly recommend Ephesus Tour Turkey and hope they make your visit to Turkey as memorable as they made ours.

We had a wonderful vacation in turkey with the Neopolis tour and Meltem arrangements was very good , our tour guide Didem in Istanbul was the best of all the guides cause she explained all the details of the site seeing, very helpful in all ways .My son had lost his Apple Watch in a mall she helped us called the management cause we had a language problem and we found it with all help . It was a wonderful trip and we had a lot fun in Turkey. It was evident how much Didem loves her country and she was such a pleasurable person, we had an amazing time with her.

The tour was fantastic, the sites were beautiful and our tour guide Oshan did a fantastic job of explaining everything to us including insightful history about everything we saw. Luckily for the first day of touring it was just the two of us! The lunches were fantastic and thoughtfully authentic and local to the area. Miss Meltem our tour representative got back to us within a few minutes with any questions we had which is one thing that will make me book with this company again! She even took care of a problem we encountered with our driver at the end of the tour where he had some issues with the transit police because his van information had not been updated in the system. Miss Meltem switched out the driver at 11:30pm and got us a new ride back to our hotel in 10 minutes. In all my travels I haven’t experienced and more communicate or caring company and would hence recommend to anyone looking for a reliable and caring tour company. One more thing, everything was done according to schedule with not a minute wasted.
