We took a Norwegian Cruise and used Tayf Tours to tour Ephesus on our day in port. We had 10 people in our group so we booked a private tour that included the House of the Virgin Mary, St Johns Bascilica, and Ephesus. Our guide, Gokhan Baydur, met us propmtly at the port and took us on a fabulous and informative tour...

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor we booked this tour on the internet still a little unsure as to if it would be suitable for us. However Selcuk Kaya our excellent Tour Guide met and welcomed us at the port guiding us past numerous "touts" to an air conditioned mini bus. Throughout the journey to Ephesus Selcuk told us of the history culture and traditions of Ephesus and Turkey....

I would thoroughly recommend this company to any travellers wishing to tour the Ephesus region. We had our own private 9 seater people carrier for 4 of us, with an excellent driver and asuperb guide for the full day. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertainig and lunch was included. As we were cruising our time was limited but we managed to see all the sights and this day was a highlight of our holiday...

Nafia our guide picked us up at the airport in Izmir and was very accommodating. She explained our trip so we were well prepared for our Ephesus tour. The tour was very relaxed and she provided alot of information and did not seem bothered that some of us wanders off from time to time.

My wife & I spent a wonderful day in Ephesus, Turkey on a TayfTours with Henry our guide. Henry made our day so enjoyable. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about Turkey in general and the history behind the country. I would recommend TayfTours and Henry in particular for guiding you through this beautiful country.

We booked a private tour of the Ephesus ruins, including the terrace houses, while on a cruise from Athens to Rome. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide, Serdar, is a local guy (he lives in modern Ephesus), spoke excellent English, and was very knowledgeable about everything we were seeing. He was also very open and outgoing, and fun to be with...
