Our day with Tez was easily the favorite of our 18 days in Turkey and Greece. The amazing archaeological significance of Ephesus and Mary's house become palpable when the right tour guide leads the way. We (two couples) had arranged the day independently (vs. through the cruise line), and truly, that made all the difference. Tez met us exactly as arranged, with a private, well-appointed van and a very pleasant driver. We had asked for a tour guide who was well versed in the biblical significance of each of the sites we would visit. Tez delivered. He provided us with both historical and scriptural information before each stop, then stayed with us, pointing out nuances we would have missed, and answering questions as they arose. We were a small enough group that we really could direct the tour to meet our own needs and interests, spend extra time where we wished, and be done when we'd had enough. Despite all this pampering and private attention, this tour was less expensive than the crowded ones provided by the cruise company. Tez' tour has my hearty recommendation.

Our tour was exceptional. From the moment they picked us u in the beautiful van. Our guide Bihtar spoke very good English. She was an excellent tour guide and was very informative. She gave us time to ourselves and showed us all the highlights too. We can thoroughly recommend her in this tour.

Mrs. Piner was excellent. She took us everywhere we wanted to go and more. Very knowledgeable, kindhearted woman. We had the best time with her without feeling we missed anything. Thank you for such a wonderful time.

We took a private tour of Ephesus and the surrounding areas with Denizhan last December. Denizhan picked us up from the train station in Selcuk early morning. We had the most amazing day. The depth of knowledge that Denizhan has was truly impressive and we learned so much about Ephesus and the people who built it and ruled it. We also visited the shrine to the Virgin Mary located near Ephesus, the Temple of Artemis and St. John's Basilica. When we got finished with the tour, Denizhan brought us to the clothes and food market in Selcuk which happens every Saturday. As seasoned travelers, we would have no hesitation in recommending Denizhan for this tour.
