Archeology Comes to Life
, Nov 2021
Our guide Ozgur provided us with an extremely in-depth tour. His knowledge of archeology kept us totally engaged during our walking tour and made the ruins come to life. We highly recommend!
Best way to explore Ephesus
, Nov 2021
My guide was Ozgur Dalkilic who did an excellent job. He was really knowledgable about Ephesus as well as the context of other sites. The tour started with a through of overview of the site map of Ephesus and then moved on to looking at specific remains. In particular, Ozgur added a lot of historic detail and avoided a bunhc of silly anecdotes that may or may not be true that so often come with historic tours. Starting the tour at Ephesus was mor ecost-effective and avoided being brought to a bunch of artisan sales pitches. Highly recommend.
Amazing tour guide

Our guide Ozgur was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and spent a little more time with us going over the House of Mary. He told fascinating stories about Ephesus. I would highly recommend his tour.
Best Way to See Ephesus

Trust me, you need a guide for Ephesus. I'm a high school history teacher and I had been here 10 years ago, but it would have been a completely different (and lesser) experience without a guide. This place is too big with too much history and too much nuance to truly appreciate what you're getting on your own. And since you're going to be smart and get a guide, you should get Özgür because he's the best. He was very knowledgable, easy to talk to, and invested in making sure we had the best possible tour. Added plus? He's an archaeologist who worked on the Ephesus site (among others) so he can give excellent insight into both the historical city and the process of excavating it.
A fantastic short tour
, May 2021
My wife and I recently came to Bodrum from Cappadocia and had rented a car (highly highly recommended to get your own car in Bodrum or anywhere in Turkey that’s not Istanbul) and we decided that we didn’t want a long tour where we the guide took us to his favorite leather, rug, ceramic, etc business where they hard sold us on their item of choice. We just wanted a guide for Ephesus. And that’s exactly what we got. Our guide gave us a ton of information in packets we could digest. He was patient as we took a million pictures and was happy to take them for us, taking our detailed pose instructions and making the photos look great. He was also a very kind person. Overall we just really enjoyed ourselves.

Hello Shane, Thank you so much for your positive review.
Excellent experience
, Nov 2020
Great experience with a very friendly guide. He shared a lot of interesting details about Ephesus. I highly recommend anyone do this tour!
Amazing tour guide- must have
, Jul 2020
Our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable and extremely insightful and professional. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Bible and how it relates to not just to Ephesus but all of Turkey regarding the early church. I’d do another tour again with him 110% and hope to come back some day.

Unfortunately, the tour operator and I did not make contact the night prior to the tour to make specific arrangements, so we missed each other at the appointed time. He assures me he was in the right place at the right time, and seems very sincere about it so I will give him the benefit of the doubt. I received a full refund promptly on request so I was not in the end ripped off.

Tour guide was excellent - went above and beyond to tell us about Ephesus and also took some time to tell us about the Akropolis that we had visited the day before in Bergama. Learned more in an hour then we ever would have done on our own. Easy walk when starting at the top and walking down.
