I booked a tour for Ephesus from here instead of cruise company. I have to admit everything was perfect. My tour guide Mehmet was extremely knowledgeable about the region and also he is very friendly person. And tour company Samyeli Travel arranged very comfortable car for me. Everything happen was on time and also i had spare time for shopping. And i bought luxury handmade carpet. Every cent, every minute worth, for this tour. I will definetely recommend to everyone this tour who wants to visit Kusadasi and Ephesus.


Our trip today was really amazing. Our tour guide Semih Tazegul showed us the nicest places in Ephesus and has a lot of background information about the history and the old buildings of the city. We also visited a carpet shop where they weave handmade carpets in best quality. I can really recommend this tour and the guide!

Our tour guide brought us to Ephesus first. We were eager to start shopping right away. The mannequins first displayed a leather jacket to us. Then we observed the girls manually knitting carpets. In every wholesale store we visited, they offered us wine and Turkish raki food. No, they did not push us to make a purchase. When we compared the pricing, it was significantly less expensive and of superior quality than the city center, and it was by far less expensive than my home nation. When we look at the handcrafted carpet we purchased at home, we are quite satisfied. THANK YOU WE RECOMMEND EVERYONE Turkey's SAMYEL Travel Kusadas THANK YOU, CRUISE PORT KUSADAS' EPHESUS TOURS Thank you, Memocan and Mr. Denizcan.
