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.

I arranged a last minute private tour last night for today to Pamukkale from the Ramada hotel as the weather here was looking poorly , Mamko was more than accommodating to our request. We had a private guide (Ilkmer) apologies if I have spelt his name wrong , however we had a fab day out. Our guide accommodated every request , and was knowledgeable to answer any questions. I would truly recommend. Happy holiday fellow TA


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.


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...
