Wonderful experience with wonderful couple Ismail + Fatima. Professional, knowledgeable and caring. Small but more intimate and humane experience. Thumbs up!!!

May 25, 2017

My husband & I were traveling in Turkey in early June 2017 & were so fortunate to have Fatma, from Discover Ephesus, as our tour guide when we visited Ephesus.. Fatma was a wonderful guide! She took us to the main sites of interest in & around the ancient city of Ephesus, to include the Isabey Mosque, the House of Mary (the Mother of Jesus) & the Artemis Temple ruins. She knew the history of the area well & took time to answer our questions, take photos of us, & share stories of her family & her country with us. Fatma truly cares about her tour groups & goes the extra mile to make her tours enjoyable & educational. We left Ephesus not only well-informed but also with a new friend, Fatma!
My husband & I highly recommend Discover Ephesus Travel.
PS For the Ephesus tour be prepared for a hot day with sunsceen, a shade umbrella, good walking shoes, water & full charges on your phones & cameras in order to take lots of photos.
