Ephesus, Kuşadası, Turkey

Ephesus Shore Excursions and Ephesus Private Tours from Kusadasi Port, and Selcuk town and Izmir city with me who is licensed national English Speaking Professional Tour Guide.

Welcome to my playground at Ephesus Ancient City ;)

Please imagine for a second:
There is a county in the World which hosted more then forty civilations. People were fed by its fields. Took bath in the natural spring waters. Fell in love sometimes in a dangereous way and built splendid buldings for theirs deities.

Do not force yourself for imagination, you do not see any dreams when close your eyes. Actually while listening to me, glorious ancient city of Ephesus will come alive before your eyes.

If you would like to visit Ephesus and its around where you feel different things at every spots, you have a chance to meet with me as your specialist tour guide and your knowledgable local person
who will be your friend. .

You are able to find answers for all your questions.

My all private tours give the chance to have enough time for searching the caches :-)

*I can arrange tours over 10 pax, please ask for Best Quote!and let me know certain number as well.

**According to your request, we can skip or add some sights to the suggested tour programs. Please inform me know about it.

***If you wish, I can create a customized tour for your approval. (According to your requests I will do my best!)

****Ephesus tours from Kusadasi is almost the same to the ones from Izmir. The only difference is time required. Ephesus is more or less 50-60 minutes away from Izmir and 20-30 minutes from Kusadasi.

A Recent Review of this guide

Atilla gave our family a splendid professional private tour through Ephesus. His knowledge on the ancient city was fabulous. We loved the extra information he shared from the Archeologists who worked on the site and the extra introduction to some of the ancient Turkish ceramicists and their works. By taking the tour with Atilla we were also interacting and having an opportunity to support the Turkish locals around Ephesus. We recommend him highly.

Credentials

I studied history and architecture of Greek,Roman,Byzantine,Selcuk Turks and Ottoman Empire ,mythology,history of religions. My graduation ceremony was in Odeon(Bouleuterion) in Ephesus Ancient City.I got my official license from ministry of culture and tourism.
Why my english setting is " advanced " and not "fluent". I like to say that:English is not my native language. I have an accent as I am not from UK/Canada/US/Australia so that's why is better to set "advanced" which means I can keep a fluent conversation but that I have an accent which is clear and easy to understand.
