The broad area in front of the Theatre was the Commercial Agora of Ephesus. Completely surrounded by columns, this Agora contained three entrances, one from the Celsus Library, one from the front of the Theatre, and one from the Harbour. In the form of a square 110 metres on a side, the north side of the Agora is left open, while the remaining three sides are surrounded by a portico which contained shops. The eastern and southern sides of the Agora were two-storeyed, the second storey of the eastern side being constructed in the form of an enclosed Doric stoa. Originally built in the Hellenistic Period, the Agora was reconstructed in the 3rd century during the reign of Caracalla (211-217 A.D.). At the centre of the Agora was a sundial and a water-clock. The centre of the square was faced in marble and contained statues of the philosophers, statesmen, and of scholars. Ephesus Tours Turkey

We had a wonderful experience on our Ephesus Tours from Izmir with Joseph (Yusel) and Istanbul Tours in Istanbul for two days with Juli (Julideh). Both Ephesus Tours and Istanbul Tours are superb guides who strike the right balance of providing excellent information and giving us time to explore on our own and take pictures. Both were very supportive and provided excellent recommendations for lunch and dinner too. Significantly, they were flexible and responded to our needs and made the right choices so we could pack in as much sightseeing as possible in the limited time we had in both locations. They were also very patient in answering many questions about the history and culture of Turkey! Our drivers and the vehicles were also excellent and contributed to our enjoyment of the tours. Alix did a great job working with you to arrange these tours for groups from the Norwegian Jade.
In particular, we appreciated Joseph’s great sense of humour, good nature and balance. He responded all our Ephesus Tour questions and very patiently to our many enthusiastic questions throughout and remembered that one of the guests wanted baklava at lunch but didn’t get any so he stopped and got some for all of us on the way back. He helped us order lunch at a good restaurant in Sirince and made sure we picked local specialties. He knew instinctively to give us the right amount of information without obscuring the beauty of the surroundings with an overload of facts. We all had a great time.
Juli was also very patient and thorough in taking us through an exhausting array of sites. She demonstrated very detailed knowledge of history and answered all questions with aplomb. She guided us very competently through all the sites in a calm, confident and compassionate manner. We knew we were in good hands with Juli who taught through example which places were worth seeing and when and which deserved more time than others.
For cruise passengers, however, these are great Ephesus tours and Istanbul Tours which I think provided more varied and personable experiences than those offered by the cruise company (who, to be fair, are dealing with hundreds of people and have to stick to a prescribed itinerary and timeline). I thought the prices of these Ephesus Shore Excursions from Kusadasi Port and Istanbul Tours were very reasonable and the fact that payment is by credit card on the day of the tour is very helpful as it helps to maintain our cash and limits the risk of carrying large amounts of money.
