The ancient city of Ephesus is one of the most stunning site in the world. Located just next to modern Selçuk on the west coast of Turkey. It was one of most largest cities of Roman Empire. Many important events took place in this city and many important people lived in Ephesus such as Paul. Today the city is frequently visited for its spectacularly preserved ruins which includes worl wide known Library of Celcus.
Ephesus, one of the most important centers of the ancient civilization, has also paved the way for the culture of the west. As in antiquity, Ephesus today is again center of cultural life. Those who seek to broaden their minds must linger for a while at Ephesus. In such a way will Ephesus continue to live in the future as an important and integral part of the world cultural heritage.
Ephesus, one of the very few ancient cities which has been continuously inhabited for more than three thousand years up into the present era.
True to the importance of this glorious past in Ephesus many excavations have been carried out by several excavation teams.

Yo vivo en Kuşadasi que es la aldea portuaria principal para los cruceros por estar al lado de la ciudad antigua de Efesó, también muy cerca por Izmir(Esmirna),70 km, que es la tercera ciudad más grande de mi país paradisíaco y lleno de la histora, rodeada por cuidades antiguas.

Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Murat was great--he had extensive knowledge of the area and was able to share it with us clearly and with good humor. He helped make the site come to life by sharing stories of the people who lived there over the years. Afterwards, he recommended a restaurant to us that was not only one of the best values we've had in Turkey, but one of the best meals as well-- Selcuk Koftecisi-Ahmet U. Highly recommended!

Murat guided my family and I through Ephesus in our trip to Turkey last June.
He's a great guy and guide, nice and polite. Provided us with historical context and trivia info, essencial for this kind of tourism. The visit wouldn't be the same without him.
Beyond his technical knowledge, the way he conducts the tour makes all the difference. He has a great storytelling sense that makes it all easier and lighter to follow.
Thanks Murat! Keep up with the good work!
