Begin your guided tour with a comfortable drive to Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an incredible history. Ninety minutes are allocated for a comprehensive walking tour of this momentous city. Your guide will walk with you through one of the most magnificent excavations in the world, bringing it to life for you through its history. You will start your half-day tour by visiting the ancient city of Ephesus as your first stop. Here, you will see one of the most magnificent excavations in the world, the Grand Theater, where Saint Paul preached, was the largest theater in antiquity with a capacity of 24,000 seats.
You will visit the Ephesus terraced houses containing handsome frescoes from the 2nd century CE which extend up the hill. They once housed the wealthier and more prominent families of the city, who lavished the interiors with superbly preserved frescoes and mosaics. The decor and furnishings of the houses have provided some interesting information about the lifestyle of the Ephesian elite during the Roman and early Byzantine periods. Inevitably, the houses have been compared with similar buildings found in parts of the Roman Empire, particularly with the villas of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The consensus is that the Ephesian’s houses are in no way inferior to these.
After the tour, we will drive you back to the port.

One thing that sets us apart from other tour operators is that we’ve built our own packages and tours. Many agencies force you to deal with multiple people during the booking and holiday process, which makes it impersonal. Moonstar Tour Team will deal with you from beginning to end.
At Moonstartour, we strive to earn repeat business from you! From our travelers, we love that they recommend us to their friends and family. All referrals are extremely valuable to us and we know that we have to work diligently to deserve them.
