When your cruise arrives in the Kusadasi port, your private guide meets you at the port for your tour. 

Discuss the options for your day with your guide, including one of the region's top attractions. Ephesus is considered one of the best examples of an ancient Roman city, and the well-preserved ruins give you a glimpse of an important commercial center for western Anatolia.

The Terrace Houses housed the wealthy people of Ephesus, and you can see their mosaics, frescoes, and early central heating systems.

Located near Ephesus, the ruins of the Temple of Artemis represent one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Basilica of St John is the site where the early Christian saint may have been entombed. The Ephesus Archaeological Museum in Selcuk contains finds from the Ephesus excavations. 

If you'd like to see a picturesque hillside village, head to Sirince to walk through cobblestone streets, shop for local handicrafts, taste the locally made fruit wines, and enjoy the scenery. 

Your tour includes stops for a traditional Turkish lunch, shopping, and sightseeing. Have up to 10 hours to explore before your guide returns you to the Kusadasi port at least one hour before your cruise departs.

Exceptional tour. Inan, our guide met us at the port entrance and started the tour immediately as we walked to our car and driver. Inan was extremely knowledgeable about history, archeology and the most important venues to see and visit. Inan was able to avoid large crowds at different sites by calling ahead and rearranging the order of our tour. He customized our tour to make the most of our time and was extremely friendly and flexible. Lunch was in an old style restaurant and the food was delicious. Best tour ever! Thank you Inan.

This turned out to be the best tour of our vacation. It was just the two of us, the tour guide, and the driver. It included Mary's House, Ephesus, the Terrace houses, a few other places, and lunch. There was nothing extra except the tip. Yes, it did include a visit to the carpet store, but this was very short and not high pressure. Our tour guide, Levent, was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable about history as well as current events and just was a nice guy. His English was very good. I would highly recommend this tour and while I'm sure some of the other guides are also very good, I hope you get Levent!

This is a great place to visit and we loved the sites and city of Kusadasi. The day was extremely hot and one should bring an umbrella or hat for shade. Our guide was informative but very difficult to understand with his accent. In fact, most of us in the tour group, missed a lot of information because he spoke so quickly and with a thick Turkish accent. Often, he would say, go and explore for 20 minutes on your own. When, we compared our tour with our friends, who had booked the same tour with a different guide, we felt disappointed. Their guide had explained and showed many other facts that ours hadn't and their guide stayed with them the entire tour. Also, lunch was included in our tour and our guide didn't know that. In my opinion, Viator needs to regulate and have guidelines for their tour guides making sure, first and foremost, that their English is understandable and their itinerary is consistent.

This tour was PERFECT! We had Omer from Curio Travel. He was very knowledgeable about the area and took us to the hidden gems as well as the areas we requested. I would take another tour with him in a second. We (2 females) were in a private air-conditioned van and have a wonderful time!! #NailedIt

The tour is as flexible as advertised and fully private. Our guide Nehida was very kind and is very knowledgeable and took very good care of us. She was also glad to answer any question, no matter how random. Ephesus is a must see, but swinging-by the carpet weaving place on the way back was also a great experience. Lunch was very, very good. Highly recommended.

I would recommend this tour to anyone! We had a delightful time with our guide Tolga Kosesglu. Within the allotted time he guided us through all points of the religious experience within Ephesus, a authentic Turkish lunch, and tour of rug making as art within Ephesus. He got us back 30 minutes prior to boarding time at our ship and we had walked through everything with expert information. We strongly recommend this service to those seeking a shore excursion in Ephesus. The cost was very reasonable compared to others received by other passengers on board our ship. We saw more and it was personalized.

Excellent way to see the area. We'd already been to Ephesus, so the driver and guide were more than happy to show us around the local area and other attractions. Highly to recommended if you have 1 day in the city and wish to see the sights of Kusadasi!!!!
