Thanks for joining the Ephesus day trip from Istanbul.
I recently had the opportunity to take a tour of Ephesus, and it was a truly amazing experience. The ancient city of Ephesus is one of the most well-preserved Roman cities in the world and our tour guide did an excellent job of bringing the history of the city to life. The highlight of the tour for me was definitely the visit to the well-preserved Roman theater. It was incredible to see the intricate carvings and the sheer size of the structure. Our guide provided a wealth of knowledge about the history of the theater and its significance in the Roman Empire. Another highlight was the visit to the Celsus Library. The Library was built in honor of Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus, a Roman senator and it is considered one of the most beautiful examples of Roman architecture. Our tour also included a visit to the Temple of Hadrian, which was built in the 2nd century AD and dedicated to the Roman Emperor Hadrian. The temple is a great example of the blending of Roman and Greek architecture and it was fascinating to learn about how it was used in ancient times. We also got to see the remains of the Roman Baths, the Odeon and the Gymnasium. It was interesting to see how advanced the Romans were in terms of engineering and how they used the structures for daily life. Our tour guide was a local expert and provided a wealth of information about the history of Ephesus, as well as answering all of our questions. He made the tour very enjoyable and informative. Overall, I would highly recommend taking a tour of Ephesus to anyone visiting Turkey. The ancient city is a true marvel and the tour provides a great understanding of the history and significance of the site.
Wonderful service in Turkey, our day tour guide gave us his personal timing to make sure we saw the whole of the city. No rushing had plenty of time because it was only 7 people in the tour group. Highly recommend the Ephesus day trip from Istanbul. The tour we reached by air the tour service made every effort to pick us up from the airport on time. They took us to the most wonderful place for lunch and one word ‘the best of Ephesus’.
My parents and I did the tour of ancient Ephesus with Toursce company. Tour went above and beyond for us when we had an unexpected change to our travel plans. The tour guide was a true gem and made the tour an experience to remember. Apart from her lovely and caring nature Ms. Bullur was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the history of ancient Ephesus. I would recommend going on the tour with Toursce tour company in Turkey. They have the best tour guides in Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Ephesus we have come across, 1 of a kind! Highly recommend them.
We had a very informative tour with tour guide Hasan. Ephesus is a large ancient city. And the terrace houses are really something to see with the extra entrance fee. We also had a tasty lunch in a small garden and a visit to The House of Virgin Mary then continue to Sirince village where we tried the fruit wines. You can be certain to have a full fun, and very interesting day on this private Ephesus tour.
Hello Tuna, Everything was just perfect on the tour program. Thank you for your assistance during our Ephesus trip. Thank you!!!!
