  1. Jonathan

    All went smoothly in our two-day tour to Ephesus and Pamukkale. The internal flights, trips, the transfer shuttle pick-ups, and the hotel in Kusadasi. The two local tour guides were great and knew their history. Would recommend this tour company, which kept in email and msg contact throughout. Really enjoyed our trip. Thanks.

    The tour was almost like a private tour in Ephesus ancient city… We must congratulate Toursce company in Turkey. We were only 7 people on the Pamukkale day tour and 3 people in Ancient Ephesus. Even though there were only 3 of us on this tour, we still proceeded. We got the whole van and the tour guide just for the three of us. My girlfriend and I loved it and no paid an extra fee. The day trips were very special and entertaining in Pamukkale and Ephesus. We visited Mother Mary’s house, the ruins of Ephesus and Hierapolis, and the lovely white terraces of Pamukkale. All of them and places are evocative. I think Ephesus is supposed to be the most well-preserved Roman city. We appreciated our tour guides who were very knowledgeable and our drivers too. The hotel was central and clean. All the itinerary was on time and well done.

    We booked our tour through our friends in Turkey. We have booked a private tour organization for 3 days. The first day, we went to Virgin Mary’s house which is a blessing, and then we visited the ancient Ephesus ruins. Ozden was our tour guide. He was well educated and informed of the places we visited. We’ve learned a lot about history. At the end of our tour, we went to the local carpet shop and a pottery place (must experience). On the 2nd day, we went to Pamukkale for a hot air balloon tour. It’s a 3 hours drive from our hotel in Kusadasi. We left our hotel around 04:00 early morning and arrived at Pamukkale town 06:40 am then ride the air balloon. That was an amazing experience. The views from the top are spectacular and watching the balloon inflating was very entertaining. After an hour balloon trip, drove us to the mineral-rich thermal water and walked us through to the story of this magnificent hillside. There you could also swim at the Cleopatra thermal pool, the water as warm and clean. Also, the thermal hotel was very nice. 3. day we went to the Salda lake and flew to Istanbul. We did enjoy my time and it was well-planed by the tour company. Thank you, Erkan for making our trip possible. In the future, I’ll contact you again about my vacation in Turkey.

    Mustafa was our guide and as a group of 8, he managed to get us into the beautiful Ephesus complex without standing in lines. From the collection at the Izmir airport till the time we were dropped off at our hotel (worked extra hours) our guide Mustafa was extremely knowledgeable. He allowed us enough free time to absorb the magnitude of the place. This tour company in Turkey comes highly recommended. Our travel agent booked all our travel arrangements included internal flights from Istanbul, arranged airport transfers, all tours, hotel, our ferry tickets, and all included. We will highly recommend using this company in Turkey. Best for small group travelers. Instead of staying on the island of Samos for one night and two days, we could see the Cappadocia from Kusadasi in two days and fly to Santorini? I am most certainly making use of this company again for our next trip to Cappadocia in Turkey.

  5. Gonzalez

    Hasan was our Ephesus tour guide. He knows what he was doing and provided information on the sites we visited and also was accommodating to requests. The overall day tour was great, Ephesus is a must-see for history buffs. Pamukkale is a sight worth seeing even though the drive to and from is a bit long. The logistics for the tours and timing for pick-up and drop-off were perfect. Our tour package included air travel, ground transportation, and sightseeing tours. All of the done perfectly.
