I can't imagine a more informed guide than Denizhan. He and his driver picked us up at our cruise ship, brought us to Ephesus and he told us so much about that old city, as well as the general area. He was great!

Denizhan arranged a tour of Ephasus for my family. He met us promptly at the port of Kusadasi. He was also very aware of our ship departure time. The van was very clean and the driver was very good. It was a very rainy day, but Denizhan structured the tour so that we missed most of the downpour during our walk through Ephesus. He made it very interesting for everyone from elderly Mother in Law, to me the history student. Highly recommend his services to anyone visiting the area.

Denizhan was knowledgeable, articulate, accommodating, organized, and punctual. My wife's parents joined us for the tour and they thought it was a great learning experience, despite the fact that they had done a similar trip to Ephesus several years ago. I had also done a tour to Ephesus of our cruise ship and found this to be far superior. It was more economical, much more efficient from a time perspective, and we got more relevant information. I would recommend Denizhan with no reservation at all.

Denizhan is an excellent guide to Ephesus. His English is excellent and not too heavily accented. He was able to provide us with lots of detailed information that we would probably miss in a large tour group. My only regret is that he didn't ask us what we might be interested in buying while we were there. Thus, we spent too much time looking at rugs and tile making,(yes it was interesting), but we did not have time to look at any leather products.

Denizhan was a wonderful guide. We learned a lot from him. He was right there with our name clearly printed so no difficulty finding him as we got off the ship.His English is very good. As it was not too crowded in Ephesus we were finished in good time and he took us to a silk making demonstration, a carpet seller, a pottery demonstration and a leather outlet where we had a fashion show just for us!!

Tour to Ephesus was almost faultless; meeting, vehicle, loudspeaker in van, map for intro, all very pleasing; guide gave an appropriate level of detail for our tourist group; only flaw was a prolonged visit to silk worm / carpet factory where he needed to rescue us from turkish hospitality/salesmanship

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. We have spoke with Denizhan about the need to disclose the possibility of high pressure sales techniques such as this prior to the visit.

Denizhan was ill but he seamlessly arranged an excellent substitute Halil 'Sem' Semih, a former academic specialising in archaeology, to guide us around Ephesus. This, our first ToursByLocals experience, cemented the reputation of the organisation as a first class operation.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We're happy that Denizhan was able to arrange a competent substitute. ToursByLocals policy is that you must be informed and agree to such a change in advance.

Denizhan was waiting at the bottom of the gang plank as we disembarked. The transport vehicle was a short walk away and he began giving us information about Kusadasi as we walked. After a very comfortable ride to Ephesus we began the tour which was extremely informative. We had an elderly person in our party and Denizan made sure he could cope with the terrain. Denizen is a very personable and knowledgeable young man.
