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.

Easy to arrange. Helpful, knowledgeable guide and tour operator. Great mix of listening to our guide and having free time to roam around and take photographs. We added on the terrace houses and it was well worth it - beautiful mosaics and really well set out. No pressure to buy anything!

Great, helpful tour guides who are willing to go the extra mile. Good tours, and no waste-of-time trips to leather goods shops and suchlike. We went on a private tour; the only negative point was that the private tour was quite expensive.

After a lot of research we choose No Frills Ephesus Tours for our tour of the Ancient City of Ephesus and they did not disappoint. The services were professional, the guiding excellent and the experience wonderful. What l loved the most was that it wasn't obvious we were on a guided tour. There were no audio headsets or flag waving... More

The owner was very knowledgeable about the area and enthusiastic too. No shopping trips which was an added bonus. Very kindly advised us about a side trip to Birgi. The guide knew the history of Ephesus and the attractions very well. Over all a rewarding experience. Only found it a bit expensive but all tours charge similar amounts. The euro... More

Our group enjoyed the half-day Ephesus tour. Our guide was full of information and knowledge of the area. The overall operation was well run and we even got a nice book of Ephesus as a parting gift. The tour guide also told us of local scams to be aware of.

For history enthusiasts and people with an interest in archaeology this tour is a must see. The ruins here are absolutely incredible and well preserved. Our guide was fantastic and his knowledge was first rate. Christine and Mehmet were fantastic and also arranged our trip to Capadoccia.

I called up Cris of No Frills and asked her about the tours in Ephesus. Cris advised me how to get to Ephesus from Istanbul -- invaluable advice. I got her name from The Lonely Planet. So, from the day No Frills picked us up at the Izmir airport to the day we left, this tour with No Frills was... More

The Brit lady who helped me book the trip was great. The Turkish guide was chock full of facts but it took a little while to adjust to his accent. Ephesus was definitely worth the effort of making this side trip from the south of Turkey. An amazing place!

A great day trip around the wonderful site of Ephesus together with other local sights with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide Yesra. Really enjoyed it and appreciated the photo guide presented to us at the end of the tour. Interesting and good value.
