This was the Best tour my wife and I have ever had because Selda was by far the BEST guide ever. She was knowledgeable, professional, personable, articulate and very accommodating and flexible. We highly recommend Curio tours and especially Selda as the guide for Ephesus.

Awesome! A++ experience! Our guide, Gonca, was extremely knowledgeable, very accomodating, and personable. We would request her again. The tour was well organized and with Gonca's explanations we were very satisfied with the entire day. Our family is still talking about it a year later!

Excellent tour. Our tour guide was great!!! The lunch we had at the carpet factory was awesome. If you interested in buying a Turkish rag make sure you know the size of the rug you want. The rugs are unbelievable but can be pricey but you are getting a quality rug that will last for generations. Having a private tour is the way to go. Ephesus is a must see. Viator did not disappoint.

The guide should be a salesman

The guide was more interested in taking us to places to sell us products like ceramic and Carpets, than guide through the places. He should be a sales man. I read more about these places though "lonely planet" than from him. We didn't have any free time to explore Ephesus. We only saw the Theatre from a distance where I had to zoom to take pictures. Tour to the Temple of Artemis was a Joke, I had literally 5 minutes to get out of the van and take a picture. The guide just wanted to rush us to the shops. When we were in the shops, we had more than enough time to do shopping, there was no rushing us. He keeps saying everything is a cooperative and everything goes back to the people who works to make it. I later understood that it was nothing like that, saying "cooperative" was a trap to loot foreigners who would assume "Cooperatives" are what it would be like in European countries. I didn't enjoy the trip. It was a complete waste of money. It would have been better to go with another group of people, so we didn't feel along, vulnerable and trapped. We were at the mercy of wherever he took us. It is not a great feeling when you are with a little child.

This is an amazing tour! If you're on a cruise, this is your best bet - it's just your party, a guide and a driver. Lunch was delicious , Ephesus was unbelievable. You can take the tour at your own pace and ask as many questions as you want. A definite must if you're visiting Kusadasi/Ephesus.

We had a great guide who knew a lot. Turkey is a beautiful country. Our guide took us to a leather warehouse where we got a private runway show of models wearing the jackets. It was amazing. The lunch we had was so quaint, outside in a little courtyard and the food was really good. We then stopped at a rug making factory to watch the women weave those rugs. Some were as high as 35,000. The owner showed us the difference in the threading to see how they get so expensive. All handmade. It was very interesting. Nobody seemed upset when we declined to buy anything.

Our tour guide Emri was awesome, he was very informative and knowledgeable. After the tour of Ephesus he took us for lunch to a place where they weave carpets, but the restaurant had a vineyard feel to it, and the food was fabulous, a variety of dishes keep coming. After lunch we had the tour of how they make their Turkish rugs, interesting enough, our friends purchased some rugs. All in all fantastic day.

This tour should not be missed! Our guide Ozy with Curio Travel was the best! Ephesus has to be seen in person because words cannot do it justice. Ozy was informative, interesting, friendly and fun. He tailored his information to what we wanted to hear and was a wealth of information. We also enjoyed the side tours to a rug maker and leather shop. We saw the whole rug making process from silkworm to the finished work of art. When are you ever going to get the chance to walk barefoot on a Turkish rug and drink some raki? At the leather shop we got a private fashion show, and our teenagers even got to participate. Turkey is a beautiful country with friendly people, and thanks to Ozy we got the experience of a lifetime!
