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.

This tour of Ephesus was exactly what we wanted. Our guide 'Billy' was educated and knowledgeable about the site, the ancient civilisations that had populated it and about its history up to the present day, and his English was very good. The whole site is very impressive (dare I say better than Rome?), and the terraced houses are certainly worth... More

Overall is wonderful. Only one suggestion: if you are Chinese tourists like us, we highly recommend you the half day tour than the full day tour. Trust us!

We took the 1/2 day tour on October 18, 2014 and included the extra portion - the Terrace Houses. Our guide Ahmet was knowledgeable and kept the group (5) interested by including social aspects of what it must have been like living in Ephesus. The site itself is enormous and involves much walking and supportive (unstylish for some) shoes are... More

We enjoyed the tour very much. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and answered all our questions. Everything ran smoothly. We felt the tour was a little rushed, we would have liked more time at Ephesus and could easily have missed some of the latter parts of the tour. Overall though we are very happy to recommend to others.... More

Ephesus is an amazing archeological site! And so much of this ancient Roman city still remains buried under the sands of time! Yes, we did find the two hours we spent here exceedingly worthwhile and enjoyable. We were not given the option of going through the Terrace Houses (an extra fee) and I wish we had. The time for lunch... More

We booked a full day tour of Ephesus and other associated sites with this tour group, 2 days ago, by phone. we were guided to the company by other Trip Adviser reports and the information on the company's own web site. We were disappointed at a number of levels. Firstly, we were told to be at the tour office at... More

No Frills, Selcuk offered great service and value for the money. they were able accommodate us at the last minute and the entire tour was extremely worthwhile. Our guide, "Billy" was charming and a font of knowledge about the various sites we visited.

The tour was excellent. Despite the crowds at the sites our guide held our group together nicely. He was extremely well-informed, had a lot of anecdotal info that made a guided tour fun. We enjoyed the entire day. Glad to have avoided all the commercial stuff.

The company was great to work with, and the price was fair. As mentioned, there are no shopping stops, which is nice, but if you end up booking with another company, you don't need to be scared - it's not like they hold you at gun point and demand you buy something. At worst its a waste of time, but... More

Fantastic tour company. We had a guide pick us up in Pamukkale, drive us to Ephesus, and then on the next day we did a private Ephesus tour. We got engaged on the day when we visited Pamukkale - on the way to Ephesus we went to Aphrodisias and that is where we got engaged. Our guide was fantastic, took... More
