I had always wanted to visit here so I was really looking forward to our visit I must say I was not disappointed. I took the opportunity to book straight away with Goodman Tours when I heard that we would layover in Izmir with our cruise ship. Highly recommend this trip.

A great half-day in Turkey during a stop on our cruise. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Who was so personable and took us to the House of the Virgin Mary and Ephesus. We had a reasonably priced and delicious lunch together. We returned to the ship in plenty of time and had a wonderful day!

We had the most wonderful guide on our recent tour of Ephesus. We were met promptly at the cruise ship in Izmir and whisked away in a very comfortable and clean minibus. Our driver was excellent too. Our guide had a lot of knowledge of the sights we were seeing and could answer all the questions we had. We did our booking online a few months before and each time, our emails were answered promptly and right to the point. Our private tour was also customized for us, based on me describing the things I wanted to do and see. I'd highly recommend this tour company to anyone who is visiting the region.
