Ephesus Walking Tour Itinerary And Further Details


  • 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.

During the high season, on some busy days, there are 4-5 cruise ships in Kusadasi port and thousands of people visiting the sight. Local guides have priority for buying entrances, so it is also one of advantages of taking a private tour of Ephesus.

It can be very hot, 38 ºC (100.4 ºF) ir even more, and since there is not much shade in Ephesus, we advise you to bring hat, umbrella and water…

We usually spend around 2 hours in Ephesus, which is enough time to see all the most important parts of this sight.

No, it is definitely not difficult anymore, as there are new, additional wooden paths for wheelchairs inside of Ephesus.
