The Activity was a splendid pleasure from start when we were picked up by Devran (our tour guide) to the end till we were dropped off at the hotel. Devran made the road trip to the ancient sites very enjoyable with a lot of history telling. It was exciting to learn about the History and live those moments when we visited the sites. The car was very comfortable. We had the lunch and full tickets prepared to us. Entering the sites was a breeze without waiting lines. The stops we made in the middle of the tour, The factories were also very enjoyable. I can’t say there was anything I would like to change about this tour, it was just perfect. Thank you Devran.

We had our best tour guide in Turkey with Nizam. Great explanation of the cultural and historical aspect of Ephesus throughout the tour. It was a well paced tour with adequate breaks and photo opportunities. The only thing to note was the pick up driver from Izmir to Selcuk had a slightly abrupt behaviour, but our actual tour driver in Ephesus after the change of minibus was lovely. Thank you!

Barb was great! He gave comprehensive information about Turkey and Selcuk! He took us to have Turkish coffee, authentic lunch and side trips included a leather and pottery store. Ephesus tour was excellent!

Our guide Yesim was wonderful and the driver was excellent. We saw everything we hoped for and the “less walking” tour made it possible for my elderly parents. Great all around!

Nazim was an excellent guide who provided lots of information and also took great photos. Highly recommend
