Our Ephesus Walking Tour

A two hour, small group tour in Ephesus

Discover ancient Ephesus during a two hour walking tour with a professional local guide.

Ephesus walking tour is a perfect option if you arrive to Ephesus by your own vehicle or public transport. Walk in the marble streets of Ephesus, see city agoras and the temples built for Roman emperors Hadrian and Domitianus.

Visit the ancient Roman toilettes, the Odeon, the magnificent Celsus Library, and enjoy the acoustics of the Grand Theater.

You probably know that Ephesus is very crowded all year long and that the worst time to visit it is summer because of high temperatures and fact that there is no shade in Ephesus. Well, this tour can be a solution!

If you want to avoid heat and crowds, you can have your tour in the afternoon. Ephesus only for yourself!

For this tour our guide will meet you at the upper gate of Ephesus.

  • As we’d visited Ephesus previously, we wanted to spend most of our time at the more recently opened Terrace Houses and a local village. A friend highly recommended Ertunga Ecir to us. He promptly answered email questions before we met. He was a friendly, very knowledgeable guide who arranged to smoothly meet our requests. His English is strong. The vehicle he used was large enough for 6 people and the driver was very good. Ertunga’s private tours are excellent!

  • From the moment we meet Ertunga we found him very friendly and knowledgeable. On the way to Ephesus he told us current information about things happening in Turkey and surrounding countries, Ertunga was very interesting. He was flexible with what we wanted to do for the day. As all the other reviews, we also found Ertunga very good and would recommend.
