Shore Excursions and Ephesus Private Tours

If you are in Kusadasi, Selcuk or Izmir, why not visit Ephesus?

One of the biggest factors is that, since 2015, Ephesus has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In addition, the Temple of Artemis is located near Ephesus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The third reason is that the House of the Virgin Mary, which is one of Christianity’s pilgrimage destinations, is a few miles away from Ephesus. The fourth reason is that St John’s Basilica is regarded as the church in which St. John wrote his gospel and died.

Ephesus is historically and religiously important, which makes it a must to provide tours with local tour guides and local travel agencies to Ephesus.

If you are visiting Turkey by cruise ship, it is possible to take tours to Ephesus from Kusadasi port. Around 20-25 minutes is the distance between Kusadasi and Ephesus. Because of the inadequate choice, it is not simple and practical to use public transport from Kusadasi. A private car with a driver and a local guide is the fastest way to reach Ephesus from Kusadasi and it is easy to arrange thanks to us.

Tours to Ephesus from hotels in Izmir, Kusadasi or Selcuk

Ephesus tours from hotels in Izmir, Kusadasi or Selcuk are possible. You may either get a driver and a guide for private transportation by local travel agents or rent a taxi. Renting a car should be the second choice, since there is an upper gate and a lower gate in Ephesus and there is about 30 minutes of the shortest walking time between them. However, getting a driver and a guide is a perfect choice because the pleasure of the guidance service you will receive is an undeniable fact. If you have a car and left your car at the upper gate, you’d go down via Ephesus first and then back uphill to the parking lot. Or if you parked your car at the lower entrance, you’d walk uphill through Ephesus first, then head back downhill to the parking lot.

Tours to Ephesus with local guides 

When visiting Ephesus, this should be a must experience for you. No matter how many books you’ve read about Ephesus, visiting an ancient site with a local guide who not only has knowledge on history, but also on culture and everyday life in Turkey is even more fun. Prior to your tour through local travel agents, it is advised to book guides. On the day of your arrival, it would not be easy to find available guides if you did not pre-book. So, contact us for more information and consultation.
