Ephesus Day Tour From Istanbul;
We booked this excursion while on a cruise. It was a full day but worth every step. A good tour guide is a must if you really want to know details about Ephesus Think about the time this amazing ancient city was built and who lived and walked the streets of this amazing attraction. The engineering that went into this is mind boggling! We have had a perfect Ephesus tour from istanbul by Ada Vegas Travel!

Best Ephesus Tour from ISTANBUL;

At first I was hesitant to buy this 1 day Istanbul to Ephesus travel package, but I am glad I did. The package included airfare, lunch and pickup from hotel to airport and from airport to the start of the Ephesus tour and back. Ephesus is obviously a city of ancient ruins but when the tour guide starts explaining the important events that made Ephesus one of the great cities during the Roman times. your imagination starts to wonder. For Christians, take note that this was the ancient city where St Paul wrote his letters to the Ephesians. St John the Beloved remains are buried in the Basilica of St John, also in Ephesus. The last leg of our tour is a visit to the House of the Blessed Virgin Mary, an 10 minutes away from the Ephesus ruins. Consider this as a pilgrimage. I highly suggest taking this 1 day trip to Ephesus if you don’t have time in your itinerary. Was A great day at Ephesus!

Istanbul to Ephesus;
We booked a private Ephesus day tour with Ada Vegas Travel from istanbul to izmir for a day in ephesus. we normally do exploring on our own but glad we changed it up and booked this guided private Ephesus tour, it was really nice to relax and sit back while someone else is taking the lead.

Ada Vegas Travel pretty much took care of every little detail from when they picked us up at our hotel, to making sure we had seats on the flight we requested, to having a knowledgeable guide take us around ephesus and back again!

it was a lovely drive and also a nice change in scenery from busy, city istanbul to fruitful, green mellow country like area. the history of ephesus is amazing and only 20% is uncovered. they still had people excavating and working on new finds! you don’t have to be a professional photographer to snap outstanding photos the place, it does it for you!

we also had a delicious turkish lunch at a cute, quaint restaurant with big glass windows to more beautiful greenery to top it off! a must, must to do activity that cannot be missed!

Wonderful Ephesus Tour from Istanbul;
With two days in advance we called to inquire about a day trip to Ephesus and Mr Umut was able to set it up to our specifications and all easily done online. The trip could not have been better. At Izmir we were met by our tour guide Hasan and our driver Fevzi who did a fantastic job in showing us the region, the historical sites we had selected to see and some local carpet and ceramic cooperatives we agreed to visit. You can tell Hasan has a passion for what He does as he gave us, above and beyond the expected, a lot of additional historical details. This is a service we would greatly recommend to someone who is looking for a piece of history of this wonderful country and region. Thank you all for making our trip to Turkey even more magical.

Istanbul Tour and Ephesus Tour by Ada Vegas Travel;
We recently travelled from Sydney , Australia to Istanbul and were very much interested in seeing the ancient city of Ephesus.
We initially had problems booking a tour with other companies as they did not even reply to our online enquiries but Ada Vegas travel got back to us promptly and offered us a number of alternatives. We ended up requesting that they book our airline tickets from Istanbul to Izmir and back and that we would get picked up from the airport for a private Ephesus tour. All of this was achieved with the minimum of fuss and all went very smoothly.
From the moment He met us at the airport our guide Ilker was friendly ,engaging and very informative . We were given just the right amount of detail and encouraged to ask questions which we did ,not only about the tour but about Turkey in general.
We found Ilker to be extremely well informed and interesting and we had a very pleasant day with him. Our driver was efficient and courteous and all in all we couldn’t have asked for better service.
We would highly recommend this tour company to anyone wanting an intelligent thorough look at Ephesus and the surrounding area specialy if you travel from Istanbul.

Ephesus tour pick-up from Izmir airport;
We had an excellent guide in a comfortable air conditioned minivan that included all the sites we requested with the Terraced Houses (highly recommend), Ephesus layout, Ephesus museum, Church of St. John and Shrine of Virgin Mary. Our guide Mr Ilker was very knowledgable on site as well as in the museum. The Turkish tour company was always responsive to our emails and arranged a smooth pick up from the airport in Izmir. I will definitely use them again for future travels to Ephesus and other locations in Turkey.

Ephesus tour from ISTANBUL;

We needed to arrange a custom tour for four of us for a packed one day trip. After flying to Izmir the night before, we arranged for an early pick-up at our hotel right at the airport. This enabled us to reach the House of the Virgin Mary almost before anyone else had arrived.
The vehicle was spacious and most comfortable and most importantly, well air-conditioned! I do not have enough superlatives for our guide Ilknur. She expertly guided us on to the ancient city of Ephesus, and despite the growing number of people, was able to navigate us to all the highlights along the way sharing an incredible knowledge with us. She patiently waited for us to take lots of photos and took several of us for us as well. After spending just the right amount of time in the ancient city, we went into town where we opted to try some local food at a small restaurant. Wow, was it great.
We made our way on to the Temple of St. John and then to the Ephesus Museum before a quick stop at what is left of the Artemis Temple. We then parted ways with Ilknur as the driver returned us to our hotel right on schedule later that afternoon.
We had a lot to see, but Ada Vegas Travel was able to arrange it all and customize it to our wishes without any trouble. I had several emails back and forth with questions which were all answered. Everything went off without a hitch and the price was exactly as quoted. We did have several add-ons but the costs were all made clear ahead of time.
There are lots of options for day trips to Ephesus. I definitely feel it is worth the effort and money to consider a custom tour especially if you are pressed for time as we were. There is no other way we would have been able to see all the sights we wanted to , let alone learn as much as we did about the area and Turkey.
As for our guide, Ilknur, I think it would be most difficult to find a more charming, pleasant and friendly guide than she was for us. Her English is terrific. She has been to many places in the US so ask her about her favorites. And our driver was top notch as well.

%100 Recommended without hesitation.
