Tours and prices:
Come with me on a visit to the best preserved ancient city of Ephesus. Founded by the Greeks, and built and re-built by the Romans, Ephesus, also a center for the early Christians. On our day together we would see these places and give you a sense of the glories of this special place. We can visit the Ancient City of Ephesus, Ephesus Terrace Houses, Museum, Mother Mary House, the Temple of Artemis, Isabey Mosque and St John Basilica. This is a private tour and includes local guiding and separate driver.

I am passionate about telling food stories and discovering different cuisines, their history, traditions and local artisans. One of my biggest inspirations is my city , a place where so many different cultures blend into and interact with each other.
This is a private tour you could add the side or remove yourself depends of your interest even during the tour.
This is a great tour for history , archeology , food , culture lovers.

Personal profile:
I am a Professional Tour Guide in English Language
2007 – Licenced Tour guide.
I was born 1970 in Izmir. ( Ephesus area )
Guiding areas: Throughout Turkey; Ephesus tours, Cappadocia tours , Pamukkale tours. Pergamum tours, Troy tours. Lycia tours, Gallipoli Ansac tours.
I have been using my local insights and personal experience to create custom tours.
I have a good relation with the local people that makes my tours special. Let you hook up with the locals for a more authentic experience based on guest interest. Such as may have traditional Turkish shave experience, watching traditional camel wrestling , shopping at the local food market and cooking at home , have the tea at the traditional Turkish tea house. . .
I believe the best way to learn about a destination, its cultures, and traditions is to meet the locals. ‘meet the locals’ is a notion as a local tour guide. More and more travellers seek to escape the confines of group tours and set itineraries and have the flexibility to take part in activities linked to their own interests. I tried to understand what travellers are looking for during the tour and answer their expectations. That makes my tours exceptional.
As a tour guide tried to accomodate all requests to allow travellers have an experience about Turkish culture and lifestyle.
