Following a morning pickup from the port or your hotel in Kuşadası or Selçuk, travel by air-conditioned vehicle toward Ephesus — widely considered among Turkey’s most famous sites of interest. Along the way, listen as a private guide sheds light on the region’s complex history and rich heritage.

Stop on route for 10 to 15 minutes at the Temple of Artemis — one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, built in honor of the goddess Artemis — then alight from your vehicle at the gate of Ephesus’ ruins.

Explore the site with a private guide and take in key landmarks such as Celsus Library, the Grand Theatre, the Temple of Hadrian and the House of the Virgin Mary — a popular Catholic pilgrimage site. While exploring the ruins, visit the Church of Mary, where the third ecumenical council was convened in 431 AD.

Enjoy a traditional lunch in a local Turkish restaurant, then visit the Cave of Seven Sleepers and the 6th-century Basilica of St John — believed to be built on the burial site of John the Apostle.

When your time in Ephesus is at an end, return in comfort to your starting point in Kuşadası or Selçuk to conclude your tour.

Phyllis was our licensed guide and a professional driver was provided. The vehicle was a very comfortable van. We were met at the cruise ship port on time. Phyllis was amazing, truly a gem! She had a very organized agenda planned that covered all of the amazing historical and cultural sites on our list. The House of Mary and the Cave where St John had his revelation were the highlights, truly awe inspiring experiences. Phyllis did a great job explaining things at all of the places we visited, she was very engaging and held our 13 year old sons interest the whole time. Ephesus was breathtaking and Phyllis was an expert about the area, including the library! We had a private tour of a carpet manufacturer, and a meal there that was delicious! We also had a private fashion show at a Leather Store, where my wife and son participated as models, amazing products at great prices, Phyllis even gave advice on negotiating prices. Well worth the price!! Don't be cheap on booking tours, you get what you pay for!!
