Smooth and easy tour
Our family of 4 had an amazing experience with this tour company. We generally do not do tours however arranging the logistics of a visit to Ephesus and Pamukkale in 2 days by ourselves was too difficult. Everything was smooth starting from communication with Ismail to book the tour, he was very responsive on WhatsApp as well as email. When the tour started, our driver was extremely punctual arriving at 4am on the dot, and was skillful with navigating the roads throughout the tour. Our first day in Ephesus was unforgettable with Burga our tour guide who was very knowledgeable and personable.
We ended the day in Kusadasi which surprised us as it was a very idyllic seaside town frequented by cruise shippers as well as locals. We spent our free time by the sea and soaking up some sun, then finished with a lovely seafood dinner (not included) while watching the sunset.
Our second day started with a drive to Pamukkale with Fatima our guide, who skillfully arranged it such that we would be able to visit both the lunch spot and Pamukkale before the crowds came. She gave us good advice to avoid the Antique/Cleopatra pool as it was the day before the pool water gets changed and the water was very dirty.
We also had the option for visiting some factories for leather goods and onyx (these were opt in). They were not pushy and you don't have to buy anything if you don't want to. They also gave us the option to skip the visit and spend our free time instead which was appreciated!
Thank you to Best Turkey Tour and our guides Burga and Fatima for the amazing and professional trip!
Spectacular experience & In good hands
My twin brother and his wife from South Africa and I embarked on a journey to see the city of Ephesus for ourselves and then we went onto Pergamon ending at the location where St Philip was martyred, Pamukkale.
I can definitely recommend using Iglesias Tour company as it is always a bit scary to select a touring company. All the arrangements went off perfectly and the our experienced Mr Ercument, English speaking tour guide, communicated interesting historical information about the various locations. My mother will be travelling to Turkey in Sep-22 and will also be using Iglesias Tours along with her sister and brother in-law from Australia.
After completing my trip using Iglesias Tours, I informed my mother that there is no need to worry about your trip because, " You will be in good hands" with Iglesias Tours. Travel, times, food, laughs are all expertly arranged and guaranteed.
Further to the excellent Touring company the locations especially Ephesus were absolutely amazing to behold, the scale and structures' building detail and materials used makes one wonder if our Civil & structural engineers should be embarrassed. What a impressive historic monuments of our ancestors and how impressive they really were and seeing the very places I had heard about and read about in the Bible was really impactful.
I wish you all an enjoyable time on your holiday/tour plans.
(As with any online overseas purchases, I am always worried of scams but this is legitimate. This affirmation is to allay any fears you may have.)
Booked a 5-day Ephesus, Pamukkale and Cappadocia tour. Upon payment of the deposit, flights, accommodation and itineraries were promptly arranged, confirmed and communicated. Ismail updated me on pertinent information prior to the daily itinerary including helping me to check-in my flights online which I had forgotten to do. We selected premium accommodation. The hotels, Charisma Deluxe in Kusadasi and Yunak Evleri Cave Hotel (excellent restaurant) in Cappadocia, were excellent and worth the extra. If only we had more time and energy to make use of their facilities.
Tours to Ephesus and Pamukalle were superb with Ismail and Fatima being our guides. They were knowledgeable, professional and kind. They provided sufficient time for us to enjoy ourselves at Ephesus and Pamukkale and provided sufficient information. Fatima also made sure we arrived at a time when she knew there would be lesser visitors so it was great that we could enjoy some of the pools without the crowds. Two of us were joined by a family of three so the small group of 5 made the tours more personalized. As with any other tours, do expect side trips to craft workshops/ shops. This trip included a trip to a carpet weaving workshop (which was informative) and a leatherwear outlet. The shopkeepers do not pressure you to purchase anything.
I highly recommend using their services and I have also recommended them to friends who are planning to go to Turkey. I usually prefer to travel free and easy but because I am really glad I booked this tour for this leg of my Türkiye trip.
Happy tour Kusadasi and Ephesus.
Visit to Ephesus is very informative. I see beautiful places in Kusadasi and Pumakkale. The foods are tasty and big prtion.Transportation is comfortable all along our tour. Driver and tour guide are friendly people.
Izmir & Pamakule tour from IST
The husband and wife team is a delight to be with. Responses to my email and WhatsApp messages were timely. As with Tours one is always weary as to the quality of the experience. I would like to recommend them as information is clear and they are cheerful and friendly.
