The guide had very good English and we could understand her very well. We enjoyed talking about many subjects and appreciate all of the information that she gave us about the location that she took us to. The driver did a good job as well on time and made sure that we did not have to go to crowded places. it was a very relaxing and informative experience, we will definitely use them the next time that we are in Turkey

We had a great tour of Ephesus and Virgin Mary house with Funda. Funda gave a very thorough and easy to understand explanations of the sites and history. She was also very accommodating when we wanted to go to House of Virgin Mary which is outside the original program. Overall a phenomenal experience and would recommend going with Funda.

We had a great time with Ali on our tour from the Kudasi cruise port. We had a great tour of St John Basilica and an excellent stop to observe the pottery process in an intimate setting with just the five of us. Our detailed exploration of Ephesus excavation was top notch and not to be missed. We were able to see more than just a regular bus tour would. Ali, our guide, was very passionate in his explanations of what was being revealed all around us. We had lots of questions, all easily answered. We finished off our 6 hour tour with an authentic Turkish lunch where Ali explained all the dishes and the significance of the local culture for the many dishes we shared. Excellent!!
