Your Itinerary

Ancient City of Ephesus

Ephesus is an exceptional testimony to the cultural traditions of the Hellenistic, Roman Imperial and early Christian periods. Ephesus is an important site for Christianity; being one of the seven Churches of Revelation. Apostle Paul probably spent two and half years in Ephesus during his third missionary journey. It will take about 2 hours to discover Ephesus Ancient City by walking on the marble streets, accompanied by our English speaking tour guide. The site has two entrances; as it is slightly downhill, it is a better idea to start from the upper gate. In our tour, we will be seeing Odeon, State Agora, Prytaneion, Memmius Monument, Domatian Temple, Hercules Gate, Curetes Street, Hadrian Temple, Latriens and Private House (so called Brothel, 'Terrace Houses') Celsus Library, Marble Road, Commercial Agora, Great Theater, and Arcadine (Harbour Road).

We enjoyed our private tour with Gul very much. We especially enjoyed the fact that we did the tour at our own pace. We highly recommend that you ask for her on the future. Her English is impeccable as are her explanations of history and of modern Turkey.


Gul was an amazing guide! My family and I enjoyed her cheerful nature, and she went above and beyond to let us through to attend Mass at House of Mary, had delicious local Turkish food with Turkish tea and Turkish coffee, plus the stop at the Payless Outlet leather store was the cherry on top! We will definitely do this tour again. You won’t regret booking this tour!!


Having already visited Ephesus, we focused instead on the Basilica of St. John, the Selcuk fortress, the archeological museum and the Temple of Artemis. Our guide Volkan was superb: he offered so much information not only about the monuments but also about the area generally.


Excellent! Genzki is very helpful and telling us the full history in our journey. Our lunch at the beach side is pleasant and relaxing.


Volkan was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The vehicle was clean and very comfortable . Amazing tour of Ephesus


La visita,l'ospitalità e la competenza di Gul sono state perfette. Consigliamo a tutti di fare questa bellissima esperienza con loro, perché sono molto disponibili e gentili. Rapporto qualità prezzo eccellente, in quanto abbiamo fatto un tour da soli con la nostra guida Gul che è stata gentile e bravissima.
