Rated Excellent on TripAdvisor & Top Choice on Lonely Planet 2017 - History Only - No Shopping visits - 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 Mar 2018). Cruise passengers please inquire about our Ephesus shore excursions and private tour options.

Christine, Mehmet & Mete make an engaging team: friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Ephesus and the surrounding classical ruins. And, as promised, there were NO visits to souvenir or carpet shops! This was completely the classy, personal experience we were looking for.
