Fatima was our tour guide. She’s knowledgeable, interesting and brought the story of Ephesus to life. We truly enjoyed this tour with Fatima.

The tour operator arranged everything in great detail. Everything was on time and flowed smoothly. Once we got close to Ephesus our guide Fatima joined us. She is very knowledgeable about the history of the area. She also was able to give us insight on Turkish culture and traditions. We were able to decide how much time we wanted to spend at each location. The lunch place that was included on the tour with traditional Turkish dishes was really good. Definitely would recommend this tour.

Since I have visited many Roman ruins in Israel, those of Ephesus did not “wow” me as they did for my friend, but I’m still glad we made this side trip. It would have been helpful to have a driver who could explain the local geography, features and culture of the area as we travelled from the airport. At one point our driver had to brake suddenly to avoid an accident and my friend was flung from her seat. The driver didn’t notice or apologize. For me the highlight was the traditional Turkish cuisine at a local restaurant and learning about our guide’s life in rural Turkiye. Our guide was lovely but did not stay with us to the end of the tour of Ephesus.While it was interesting to learn about carpet making, I felt uncomfortable with the pressure to purchase rugs. Overall the experience was good but could be improved.

This was one of the best tour we experienced in Turkey. Ephesus the ancient Roman city is a must see. The people who work for this company are professional, helpful and informative. Booking the tour was an effortless task because the person assisting us was efficient. The airport pickup was prompt and the driver Yildirim was kind and very thoughtful. On the way to the tour site it was an hour drive. Yildrim bought us water and some delicious pastry—-we didn’t even ask him. He was wonderful. Our guide Fatima was informative and patient while we asked questions and took pictures. She truly knows her history. We loved the fact that she is actually a local and does not just do this as a job but she is truly passionate about it. I loved the way she brought history to life with her great storytelling skills. This tour was very authentic and a unique experience. The historical places we visited were breathtaking. The lunch at a local restaurant was delicious. We actually saw the Turkish women making the bread. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Turkey and wants a quality tour. I can’t say enough you must experience it. Thank you Fatima for making our trip to Turkey memorable.
