What people are saying about Izmir Province

Fatima and her team are absolutely amazing - I’ve been on a lot of tours around the world, and this one is right at the top of my favorites list. Ephesus is fantastic, and Fatima was such a knowledgeable guide. The lunch is also the best I’ve experienced on any tour - delicious food included and nice wines available for a very reasonable price. I also really like the size of this tour - small enough to feel personal, but uses a more comfortable minibus to get around so there’s plenty of space for everyone. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough!

Erman, our guide, made all the difference! Very well educated, polite, patient and knowledgeable. Thank you Erman. Also the transport arrangements were impeccable.

Excellent choice. Our guide Hussein was very knowledgeable and explained in details the tour! Traditional lunch was included which we enjoyed it! Thanks Hussein!

Great learning experience, informative and enthusiastic guide who is an archaeologist herself. Good timing especially since there are flights involved.

The person in charge of the excursion was one of the best english-speaking tour guides. Well explained history and guided tour. Thank you!
