Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted right outside the port by Ahu, our tour guide to Ephesus. We were driven in a private vehicle to Ephesus and were given a thorough tour of Ephesus and the Terrace Houses. It was great to be able to see everything that Ephesus offered along with getting an overall descriptive narrative through Ahu. Ahu was not only a tour guide but she was very easy to speak to and made the tour fun for all of us. She even took us to a runway show which featured leather jackets. They were pricey so we didn’t buy anything but the experience was fun. I could have done without the rug shop but how the rugs were made may interest some. Overall, we had a great experience with Ahu and if we ever visit Turkey again we would be sure to look her up!
It was a very cool experience. The water was choppy and made for an unpleasant boat ride (but that's beyond the divers'/instructors control). I was expecting a different kind of lunch instead of pasta and chicken nuggets, but then they didnt have to provide us with lunch and they did. I also wish the photos were included with the price of the excursion, (maybe increase the price of the excursion to include a shot or two). My husband got sick on the boat and the crew continued to treat him with some dignity, they handled that really well. My husband loved the experience despite getting sick and actually said it was his favorite part of our vacation!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour. We were in complete control of our day and how long we spent at each site. St John's Basilica was under renovation so we only visited from outside but we were taken to a muesuem nearby instead. Our guide Ahu was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed historical and religious explanations at each site. As this was a private tour we utilised the option of making additional stops (within the duration of the tour) and choosing any drop off point at the end of the tour en route our pick up hotel. Highly recommend this tour!
Macking a private tour with driver and Profesional guide we gain time and spend quality time sowing that fabulous sites. For shore, in the future I will check first prior any tour if there are Profesional services dedicated to a small group or family interested to feel good :).
Really good boat trip to 3 amazing bays. Food was really nice too. Only issue was we were meant to be collected at 8.40 but I had to whatsapp the company because nobody came. We had to wait 30 minutes for a driver to collect us. But other than that really good trip.
