On his second journey, Paul came to Ephesus and taught the twelve disciples who knew only the baptism of John (Acts 19:1-7) and ‘went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God’ (Acts 19:8)

Testimonials

  • As a young Catholic priest I was a little apprehensive to travel in a Muslim country with as much tensions as there has been in the recent past, but I was really looking forward to seeing the seven Churches which St John wrote to in the book of Revelations, as well as Mary’s house in Ephesus. I could not have been more impressed with your guide Ertunga’s knowledge and professionalism throughout the entire trip. I would have zero hesitations to go back or to recommend Ertunga as a tour guide. It as an incredible historical and spiritual experience.

  • Enjoyed our recent 22 day trip in Western Turkey visiting many Christian History sites. Ertunga was able to knit together much disparate info, suggesting changes as we went along to compensate for weather problems, etc. I would make the following recommendations: (1) Take Euros and Turkish Lira, not USA dollars, (2) Take eye drops and diarrhea tablets, and (3) Do not pet any cats or dogs – disease spreads rapidly. Best parts of the trip for me was Cappadocia and Priene.

  • Our Biblical Tour of Turkey was more than what we had expected… And this was because of Ertunga and his impeccable planning and handling of our private tour. His stories made all the places we visited more alive….the ruins were impressive even dramatic but as Ertunga explained all these places to us these stones became living and breathing cities

  • Ertunga, was exceptional and his knowledge of history, Biblical sights, legends, myths was amazing and he had a wonderful sense of humour. We saw everything on our itinerary exactly as we had requested and the food and accommodation was great.

FAQ

All guides wait otside the terminal and they hold a sign with their guest’s name.

You will need Turkish lira to buy the entrances. In all sights (except the House of Mary) you can purchase the entrance with credit card. If you do not have any Turkish lira on the day of the tour, your guide can pay for the entrances and you can pay him back at the end of the tour in USD or euros. If you decide to book Ephesus tour, we can also give you the price that includes the entrances.

The House of Mary is an active Catholic church, so it is expected that vistors wear appropriate clothes like in all other churches in the world. The Basilica of John is not an active church but an open-air museum, so you can consider it an archeological sight and can wear whatever you wish.
