“Great Ephesus tour!”
We took a full day guided private tour of Ephesus – they also do group tours. Mehmet, the owner, is amazingly helpful, friendly and full of knowledge. If you are truly interested in history and architecture (and want to skip the carpet/ leather shop tourist traps!), this is the tour for you. They call it no frills, but it has just the right amount of frills/ comfort. It is really more “no nonsense” than no frills 🙂
You travel in a comfortable vehicle with A/C between the sights, and also get a guidebook and really yummy box of Turkish Delight at the end of the tour. This was the best TD we tasted – better than anything we could find in the city of Izmir, and way better than the stuff we bought at Duty Free. If you have a choice, go to the Ephesus city first and then to the museum. A guide is absolutely necessary at the city site and though helpful at the museum, not essential.
