    At the start of May I took a tour to Ephesus my tour guide was Nico he made it very enjoyable, he was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about Ephesus,
    I’ll be going on more tours in July with this travel agency as it’s the best I’ve been to in Kusadasi and really good prices:)

    Best Ephesus Tour from Kusadasi Port; After much research – and boy there are heaps of Ephesus day tours on offer – I was so glad we (family of 2 adults, 2 children and 2 grandparents) chose Ada Vegas Travel for our Ephesus tour – from Kusadasi Port (pick up from cruise) and return. ALL of it went without a hitch! Love the fact that their competitive price (cheaper than the rest!) also included ENTRANCE fees! All other I looked into were already 90 Euro and at the last minute of communication they say : exclusions Entrance Fee! For us that menat extra 20 Euro per person! Geesh! So Ada Vegas Travel was TOP NOTCH! The lunch…was exquisite in a gorgeous country setting away from hordes of tourists. Our GUIDE Ilkay Candar was fantastic ! All in all – BOOK IT! DO IT ENJOY IT!!

    January 11, 2016

    Our experience of Ada Vegas Travel was exceptional from the booking process right through to the end of the tour. The booking process was simple and straightforward and the directions for pickup provided by Yuksel were totally clear. We decided not to book through the Cruise ships excursion to Ephesus primarily because of cost. After some research I settled on Ada Vegas Travel based on the very positive reviews. We booked a group tour however when we met our tour guide at the port in Kusadasi we learned that we were being given a private tour, at no extra cost!!! Our tour guide Ilker and driver were so welcoming we felt comfortable and at ease right from the beginning. Ephesus is an amazing place to visit, it definitely does not disappoint. We felt very privileged to be in the very capable hands of Ilker. He was so well informed both on the Ephesus site and the archeological discoveries in the area. This was a pleasant, informative and relaxed tour. I cannot recommend this company highly enough!

    January 11, 2016

    We had an awesome Ephesus shore excursion form our Celebrity Cruise. Yuksel at the convenient office customized a full and fascinating tour with a top guide and driver who thoughtfully planned the day to avoid the crowds at the archaeological site and Greek-Turkish village. The new Terrace Houses are a must to fully appreciate the latest developments in archaeology at Ephesus. Thank you Yuksel at Ada Vegas Travel for a memorable day for my wife and I. We look forward to doing an Istanbul shore excursion next cruise with you!

    January 11, 2016

    Our trip to Ephesus and this tour was one of the highlights of our cruise and should not be missed. We arranged a group tour with friends from Cruise Critic. Our guide was Ilkay and he was delightful. He was not only very informative but he was very humorous. He did a wonderful job of explaining what we were looking at and its importance in history. We had an adequate time to look around as a group and a bit on our own before meeting back at the bus. Do not miss the terrace houses! Our tour also went to Mary’s house and St. John’s Basilica and if you are limited on time or can’t do extensive walking ask for a tour without them as they were interesting but it made for a long day with those 2 stops and Ephesus and the terrace houses. On the way back we stopped at a leather shop at the request of some in our group. While we weren’t interested in buying anything it was fun to look at the obviously high end leather available for sale. Overall a very long day but we absolutely loved our tour and our guide Ilkay who was one of the best we’ve had in the world. I highly recommend our tour guide Ilkay and ofcourse Ada Vegas Travel!

    January 11, 2016

    I booked a private tour for 38 people who were on the Celebrity cruise. Dealing with Umut was so easy. The clean comfortable cars were on the dock waiting for us. Our guides all were friendly and so informative. We visited The a house of Virgin Mary,Ephesus, and the terrace houses. We than had an amazing lunch at a wonderful local restaurant..Our guides than took each car to wherever they wanted to shop. It was an amazing day Special thanks to my guide Ilker Avci who was wonderful,interesting and also very handsome. Thank you Ada Vegas Travel!

    We recently had the pleasure of visiting Ephesus as part of a tour from our cruise ship. From the collection to the return to the ship our guide was the perfect host. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout she made our day thoroughly enjoyable.
    Ephesus ancient city is one of those places that are awe inspiring and learning about the history from a local only contributed to making this one of our highlights from the cruise.
    Thank you Ada Vegas Travel a highly recommended company.

    January 11, 2016

    My wife and I booked a private tour with Ada Vegas Travel for the day that our cruise ship was in Kusadasi. We saw Ephesus, the Terraced Houses, Artemis Temple, Sirince Village, and Mary’s House. I recommend all, but obviously Ephesus is the main attraction. Our guide, AHU, was AWESOME! She was so laid back and very knowledgable about all that we saw. Ahu provided a great balance between guiding us and filling us in with the important details, but at the same time not over-saturating us and also giving us some time to explore on our own. We also asked her to visit a mosque, which was not on the itinerary, and she happily obliged. The lunch we had via this tour was also a highlight of our trip. We went to a local mom and pop restaurant run by a mother and son, where the mother actually cooks everything by hand every day. The food was so fresh and tasty! Ahu also recommended a great carpet store for us to check out where the salesmen were friendly and helpful and not pushy. This is definitely a A+ company, from the smooth booking process, to the excellence of the tour guide and driver, and to the ease in payment (which I did is USD). I highly recommend taking a private tour with Ada Vegas Travel, and especially with Ahu! The price is comparable to that of the cruise ship tours and you get so so much more value!

    Private Ephesus Tour from Kusadasi Cruise Port;
    Our cruise was stopping at Ephesus for 12hrs and my mum and I wanted to make the most of our visit without paying the cruise’s high price for a tour. I found Ada Vegas Travel online and after review other tour operators and reviews decided to book with AdaVegas Travel.
    The booking process was so easy and being able to only put down a deposit (and pay the rest on the day) was very helpful. Even when our cruise itinerary changed, AdaVegas easily updated our start time without fuss.
    When we arrived, it was a little crazy with all the other operators but Fatih found us and off we went. The luxury mini van was a plus! No cramped mini buses or large coaches.
    What I loved most about this tour was that it wasn’t obvious we were on a guided Ephesus tour. There were no audio headsets or flag waving that you see with large group tours. The conversational way Fatih took us through Ephesus was like a very knowledgeable friend taking us to visit – not a paid guide.
    We loved Ephesus. Our tour also went to the Temple of Artemis, a pottery (which I can’t remember the name of unfortunately). We had delicious lunch , which was very nice.
    I highly recommend AdaVegas Travel for private Ephesus tours.

    Our Private shore excursions in Turkey;

    We are very grateful to have friends who invited us to plan our visit in Turkey with this turkish tour company.
    Yuksel was very responsive to our requests to what we had desired to see. He recommended a great and pleasurable hotel with a great staff for our stay in Istanbul.
    Due to time constraints, we had only 2 days, one day at Kusadasi and Ephesus and one day in Istanbul however with our great guides they made them incredible.
    Ms Ahu met us at the Kusadasi Port, and we began our day. She greeted us with a gentle smile and is very enjoyable to talk with. We quickly learned she is very knowledgeable and always allowed us to take our time and just to enjoy the view, .
    The traditional lunch that was included in the plans was awesome, It gave us a true taste of Turkish flavor.
    At each of the areas we visited with her, everyone was so friendly and made you feel like you were just part of the family. Her timing made the entire day very pleasurable!
    Istanbul, is simply amazing and i hope that you get the chance to experience it with the same guide we had.
    Tolga was simply AWESOME!. Because of the need to make some
    “Real-Time” adjustments( which were out of our control) , to our travel schedule he was able to handle the requests we had and make changes as we were enjoying the sights, always making sure he was present for any questions.
    We never felt rushed, and allowing us a very relaxing ride to enjoy the Bosphorus Boat tour without worry. At all of the sites, we explored he would explain to us about the area, and what we wanted to make sure we saw, even taking us up to certain spots, to make sure you see a certain view of an area. He always gave us time to explore on our own as we visited sites, and always gave us time to ask specific questions while touring about the area we were in.
    Again, at the right time, Lunch was provided and this gave us another wonderful experience of the Turkish food, and enjoying the flavors and still having time to relax.
    Tolga covered a lot of of area in our time with him, and we will have fond memories of our visit in Istanbul because of his efforts.
    Adavegas Travel is a truly a complete agency, Yuksel had arranged our transfer from the hotel, I was a little worried since it was a very early pick-up, Tolga again called and followed up and confirmed the transfer. The driver was very friendly and got us to the Airport very quick in time for us to enjoy breakfast before our flight.
    Words are not enough to express our appreciation for the services that Adavegas provided to us for our time in Turkey. I have let friends, colleagues and family know
    if they plan to travel to Turkey that I have the information for the agency and team to
    make their adventures very memorable!

    i have been going to kusadasi many years and this is the best place to go to for excursions and tours i highly recomend it to everyone.. the excursion we went on with ada vegas where 10/10 thanks yuksel for taking great care of us.

    June 11, 2016

    We have arrived to Kusadasi port with our family of six last week with Disney Magic cruise and we had our excursion at the expected time. Our guide Ilkay has welcomed us happily on time. His English was great and he shared his fabulous information with us. It was a great experience to visit ephesus and its environment with Adavegas Travel and Yuksel.

    June 12, 2016

    So much more interesting than I thought it would be. Amazing. Our tour guide spoke beautiful English. He knew all the history from the area. I would recommend going here if you have the opportunity!

    July 1, 2016

    The best tour company in kusadasi. Highly recommended. We had an excellent time all of our expectations were met. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank you!! 🙂

    July 1, 2016

    This is an amazing historical site. There is continuous digging and searching currently as the city continues to be reconstructed. I would recommend joining the tour. This is truly an amazing Roman City….do not miss it!!

    July 1, 2016

    They are uncovering things that are beyond belief. We reviewed and studied things online before our visit, but what they have done goes way beyond what we have found online. What an amazing place to visit. What a great price of history. The restoration makes you realize just how impressive the place was/is
    It does get hot and is beat to do from top to bottom.
    If you like history, you get a really good picture of the life in the ancient days. Definitely worth a trip!

    July 8, 2016

    We spent a morning here and thought is was just the library as that is what is shown in all the pictures but it is so much more.
    A huge site which also includes a 2,000 seat amphitheatre.
    Take plenty of water and wear a hat and Adavegas travel serve this tour very well organized.!

    July 8, 2016

    Structures were impressive, hard to imagine some of them are still standing after all these years…. The level of detail in the architecture, floors, marbles is a photographer’s dream. I have seen other ruins but this is one of the most memorable for me. Definitely worth it.

    July 8, 2016

    What an amazing place! Seeing the ancient city, especially the library of Celsus and the Terrace Houses, made history come alive. It can get really hot here, so make sure you have plenty of water. A visit to the Terrace Houses helps get you out of the heat for a bit. Thanks a lot our guide Metin who were supplied by Adavegas travel told us all the history of this glorious city.

    July 9, 2016

    i was on a cruise ship through the Med, The ship has facilities for excursions ashore, yet myself and my partner strolled ashore unaccompanied and wandered into the nearest information center and inquired about trips to Ephasus, we were directed to a shop about 10 minutes walk away where we came upon a group called Ada Vegas Private day tours. We had about a twenty minute wait and then were shown to our Late model, air conditioned , 8 seater van. . It was just the two of us with a personal driver by the name of Levent and our informative , charismatic personal guide Ozzie. what a treat we had, travelling to Ephasus and seeing this ancient city that time and history has preserved. Ozzie has exceptional English and had the utmost respect for our wishes and requirements to spend time taking photos and exploring the ruins, I recommend this company strongly if you wish to experience Ephasus the way any foreign traveler should visiting a foreign land in the hands of people who have your best interests at heart.

    July 11, 2016

    Visited Turkey, Ephesus this may with my family we had a wonderful time especially with the help and information provided by Mr. İlker who showed us around getting us in touch with the culture and heritage of this beautiful country.

    July 15, 2016
