We were the only couple to book the tour on the day, but the Guide still run the tour as a private tour at no extra cost. We did everything described in the description and The tour guide was very informative and interesting. I would recommend booking the terrace house option as they were fascinating to go around. Really enjoyed our day.

Excellent tour with an experienced tour guide in a well newer maintained van. The tour guide, Mr. Merat, has a degree in archaeology and was very knowledgeable about history, architecture, and excavations.

We had an excellent tour and loved our Guide. The van was perfect and comfortable for our party of 10. Our guide, Mr. Inan, was so knowledgeable it was so interesting to hear his history of Ephesus. He was very accommodating to some members of our party who were slow walkers. I highly recommend this tour.
