Kusadasi, izmir, Turkey

I offer only walking tours PRIVATE TOURS OF TURKEY AND EPHESUS TOURS to group or individual CRUISERS / TRAVELERS who would like to visit historical / modern, biblical and spiritual perspectives of Turkey with PRIVATE EPHESUS TOUR SHORE EXCURSIONS guide from KUSADASI, Bodrum, Cesme, Marmaris and IZMIR PORTS, airports or hotels.

I have been ready to guide you privately and locally since 1998. I studied English language teaching, history, traditions, religions ( Christian and Jewish Heritage in Turkey, particularly in Ephesus and Izmir area and Istanbul) and photography. I have always been studying to learn and have been researching the most recent archaeological studies/excavations as much as possible in order to keep myself and my guests updated.

Private guiding a tour group in Ephesus region and surroundings creates more interest once you experience. This is how I started to share my knowledge of ancient history, Christian and Jewish Heritage of Ephesus, Istanbul, Izmir, Pergamon, Sardes, Priene, Miletos, Dydima, Bodrum, Alacati / Cesme / Chios, Marmaris, Cappadocia
, Gobeklitepe and surroundings.

While travelling with me privately or with a group; there are no crowds, no rush, no waiting for somebody else and no problems in hearing the guide, unlike a bus tour group. Just enjoy being on your own by having a private tour guide as me, Ilker, Private Ephesus Tour Guide, Private Turkey Tour Guide & Tour Consultant. Please note that consultation for any travel arrangements all around Turkey and surroundings is free of charge.


After the booking is fine through an A class travel agent, It is very easy for us to meet each other. You can identify me so easily because I will be welcoming / waiting for / meeting you, holding a paper on which your name is written.

A Recent Review of this guide

Ilker is not just a knowledgeable guide, he has become a friend who is opened to exchange views on different topics. We had a cultural tour without a fixed itinerary. Besides the must-see places, he showed us local places to experience how Turkish live. We had lunch in a small off the beaten track town, had Turkish baklava and so on. For anyone visiting Turkey, we recommend him as a guide. Contact him about your itinerary, he can help you with accommodation and transport.
