    star ratingHistorical tour - Our tourist guide was not quite engaging during the whole tour and quite difficult to understand her narrative. But she was pleasing and personable.

  • star ratingJourney through time to Asia Minor’s ancient empire… - Well managed, punctual and comfortable tour. Our lovely guide, Esra, was knowledgeable, amicable and engaging. Ephesus itself naturally needs no endorsement because it’s, well, Ephesus. Land of gods, warriors, scholars, priests and royalty

    star ratingGreat day out - Our tour guide Esra is very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. We had a smaller tour group which always great because it gave us the flexibility to ask questions and move around more freely. We were in no way rushed and were given ample time to view all the sites. All in all, an incredible day out and I really would recommend.
