Cappadocia Daily Tours with the Local Guides of Celsus Travel

I came to Ephesus several years ago and took the ship's tour, it was VERY expensive and had over 30 people; I did not enjoy the experience.

I wanted my return visit to be more satisfactory and ventured online to discover Celsus Tours, what a difference! it is a small company with individual service, just what I wanted. The staff is well educated, clean and personable.

My guide, Semih Tazegul, spoke excellent English and I was surprised regarding his enthusiasm and knowledge of the area and its history. I finally got to see the Terrace Houses and then explored the Ephesus Museum, which is a "must see" after touring the ancient city.

If you have the opportunity, come to Turkey and experience the history and culture. It is safe and you will not regret your time there.

We were cruising the Greek Isles with the Turkey and our cruise ship docked Kusadasi port. Our private tour from Kusadasi to Ephesus provided by Celsus Travel. Ms Ezgi the travel counselor answered all questions, in a very prompt and professional manner, which gave me great confidence in my booking. Mehmet Gokbara, our guide, was great, very knowledgeable about Ephesus and very proud of his local area, Kusadasi. We were six people and company arranged a large Mercedes Van for us. It was so comfortable and clean. I highly recommend this expert company for your tours in area of Ephesus Kusadasi.

We have taken two tours of Ephesus with Celsus Travel. The first was several years ago while on a Celebrity cruise; the second was in November with a Gate 1 land tour. In both cases the private tour that we had with Celsus Travel was cheaper than that offered by the cruise line or the tour agent. We had very knowledgeable guides and were able to set the pace of the tour. We saw more and learned more than if we had been on a group tour. I have just booked them to give my son's family a tour when they are in Kusadasi in June. The vans were very clean and new. The drivers were very nice also and were good, safe drivers. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a special tour of Ephesus. The company went out of their way to assist us and ensure that our needs were met.

We had a wonderful tour guide and a great private driver for less than the price of a group tour through Celebrity. The guide was wonderful and knowledgeable and also willing to tailor the tour to the time we wanted to spend at various places and also take us to the Ephesus museum, which is sadly under-visited.

I would highly recommend them!

It was surreal experience with Celsus Travel. We enjoyed our tour tremendously because the guide Nihal and driver Emin were both very good at what they do! We took lunch at the Yavuz restaurant and it was delicious which is something we appreciated too. Sights are amazing and definitely worth the time! Ephesus, outstanding ruins of the eastern Roman Empire. Probably the best site to explore in all of Europe. You can feel like a roman in Ephesus today!

I highly recommend Celsus Travel for an outstanding experience in Ephesus.

Small group journeys means unlocking the secrets of a destination. For some companies, the term 'small group' means sharing a bus with 45 other people. Not us. Our average group size is just 12 people and there'll never be more than 20.

Small groups mean more time spent with your local leader who knows the region inside out. We promise to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and ensure you come home with stories you will tell for years to come. Small groups also help us reduce our physical, environmental and cultural impact on the places we visit, ensuring the same immersion for future travellers.
