What is so special about Ephesus?
Having the 8 years of guiding experience, I always get this same question. First of all, I never blame the people asking this question. People don't have a slightest idea how important and large it is until they actually see it. Because it has always been underestimated, compared to Pompei in Rome and Petra in Jordan.

Here are some very important facts and details about Ephesus:

Ephesus was the fourth largest city in Asia Minor during the pax Romana having the population of nearly a quarter million followed by Rome, Alexandria and Antioch.

In fact, it was the capital of the Asia Minor provinces of the great Roman Empire.
It was one of the wealthiest cities in Asia Minor having one of the biggest port of the time.
Having a huge Jewish population attracted St. Paul and it's the city he had his largest stay, and his famous letters to the Ephesians were addressed to the inhabitants of Ephesus.

It's regarded as one of the seven churches of revelation known as the city that had lost its first love.
All in all the facts you travelers find and read in all 5 dollar guide books. If you hire me as your guide unlike all the other tour guides, I will not be telling all these historical, archaeological and architectural details that you are going to forget in 2 hours.

I will not only be your guide but I will also give you the real Turkish experience. It is extremely important to me that my guests return home with experiences to remember, not just crossing a destination off their wish list.
I simply love what I do.
