If you wish to experience an in-depth visit to the magnificent ruins of Ephesus, including Mary's House, then please look no further than Bulent ("call me Bill") Orkus, an Ephesus expert indeed. Bill does occasional work for different companies, but for the most part, for over 19 yrs., most of his tours are done independently with couples or small groups.... More

We were excited to see Ephesus , instead of booking from the cruise ship , I booked with Bulent And his company. He met us at the Kusadasi port but didn't look at us when he greeted us, he was busy looking at his phone. Also when we went to the van which was very clean and air conditioned Bulent... More

I researched private tours far in advance for our tour on Jan. 6th and I had booked Bulent booked as our guide. Unfortunately, he needed surgery (wish he had email me to give me advance notice), so instead we had Mert as our guide and we loved him- he is so laid back and extremely knowledgeable. My kids use the... More

A group of six of us went on the private, Easy Ephesus tour in mid October. Throughout the process, from booking through the tour, Bulent was very patient and accommodating. Originally booked for two, it was no problem to increase our numbers, thereby reducing the total cost of the tour. As this was my first experience booking an outside tour,... More

We booked a tour of Ephesus, House of Mary, Ruins of the Cathedral of St. John, Ephesus Museum, ruins orf the Temple of Artemis and Mosque for $240 for two. It was worth very penny. Bulent met us at the pier in Kusadasi and gave us a great tour. Bulent and his charming wife topped off the tour with coffee... More

Ms Oya Oran oyaoran@gmail.com +90 506 651 6616 was the best tour guide I have ever had in 25+ years of international travel. Knowledgeble, considerate, wonderful personality, she has a map of Turkey above the driver and puts Ephesus in historical context WITHOUT boring teenagers. We wandered all over Ephesus and learned so much about ancient life, including SPOILER alert:... More

My wife and I were on a cruise from Rome with a stop in Ephesus. I contacted, Bulent Orkus (Bill) at bulent.orkus@gmail.com or his website, www.ephesusexpert.com. From start to finish, everything was first class. Bill is very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. When we go back, we will contract with Bill again. You will come to know that his tour...
