Staying in Selcuk or Kusadasi? We at 'No Frills Ephesus Tours' offer a no nonsense tour experience without substituting on quality or service. Our aim is to provide the visitor to Ephesus a unique cultural based tour experience with a professional English speaking guide and NO SHOPPING STOPS along the way. If it is the Ancient City of Ephesus and the Ephesus Museum, the Temple of Artemis, St John’s Basilica or the House of the Virgin Mary that you have come to see then that is what we aim to show you. Our half day or full day Ephesus Tours are the perfect way for you to absorb the history of Ephesus without the pressure of carpet, leather or jewellery sales spoiling your day. Tours available every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays throughout the winter season (1st Nov - 31st March 2017). Cruise passengers please inquire about our Ephesus shore excursions and private tour options.

Highly recommend visiting and understanding Ephesus with a professional tour guide, and "No Frills", in adjacent Selcuk, took us on a flexible, comprehensive, and friendly Personal Tour. Nice to work with fellow Aussies, what a surprise! Do include Terrace Houses and Virgin Mary's House. Bit pricey for "No Frills", with lunch included, but certainly worth it.

Great tour very well organized from the reservation to the transportation and the tour itself. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Ephesus is a fascinating place and a must during your stay.

Shore excursions from a cruise ship are not easy with limited time ashore, but No Frills Ephesus Tours made it easy for us. Knowing that we had only a day, they picked us up and dropped us off at Kusadasi (cruise ship dock.). Also knowing that we wanted to see as much as possible, our guide even accommodated our request... More

Well organised and well run from booking to pick up from cruise ship and then on to Ephesus. Mete is very knowledgeable guide and interesting person. Only gripe is that the tour went way over the indicated length. We chose this tour based on the projected length being 5.5 to 6 hours. However, it ended up being about 7.5 hours,... More

This was one of the best tours we have had. Our guide was great and my little boy lucas who loves history had learned so much. We were able to go to every place we wanted to see on the tour and more. Our lunch was fantastic, a place we asked to be brought where the local went to eat.... More

Our extended family, a party of 10, had a wonderful "No Frills tour of Ephesus" that we organized with Christine. Our tour was a full 8 hour tour and included the House of the Virgin Mary and the Terrace Houses both worth the extra costs. Our tour guide Yesra was wonderful and she took us to a restaurant for lunch,... More

We took a full day guided private tour of Ephesus - they also do group tours. Mehmet, the owner, is amazingly helpful, friendly and full of knowledge. If you are truly interested in history and architecture (and want to skip the carpet/ leather shop tourist traps!), this is the tour for you. They call it no frills, but it has... More

We booked this tour from Australia and the visit to Ephesus was anticipated to be a highlight of this holiday, we weren't disappointed. When we arrived in Kusadassi earlier than expected, we phoned the company to see if they could start our tour any earlier. They were really helpful and we met our guide and driver just 15 minutes later.... More

Ephesus is an amazing site, and definitely worth a visit. Most tours stop at carpet, leather, or other tourist shops to try to convince you to purchase souvenirs at outrageous prices. No Frills is a little more expensive than competitors, but that's because they don't get kickbacks from shops. Instead, you spend all your time at the various attractions. Perfect.
