  • I researched a number of tour companies before I chose Ephesus Travel Guide as our tour company. It was an excellent choice. We had a private tour with a guide and driver. Our guide Mr. Denizhan Pekoz, spoke perfect english. He was very professional and knowledgeable. The cost was less than the ship tour and we got to see a lot more. Our guide met us at the ship and we had a nice Mercedes van. I would highly recommend this company for a tour of Ephesus. Do not hesitate to use this company. You will not be disappointed.
