In September, my friends are planning to take a Holland American line with following excursions. It seems the cruiseline arranged tours are filled, can anyone recommend good/reliable day tour (that could take you from the dock, tour and back to dock?) at Euphesus? Is there any good day tour company picking them up from the cruise ship, have a tour of around etc then take them back to the cruise ship? How much would this cost? If you have any day tour company recommendation for places below also, it would be very helpful: - Athens (from dock Pireas) - Corfu - Katakolon - Messina, Sicily, Italy - Dubrovnik, Croatia Thanks in advance for any help!
When we were in Kusadasi we saw a book in the bookstore just outside of the port that had transparencies overlays to the ruins so you could see the "then and now" differences. However, they did not have the book in English, so we hoped to find the book when we got home. Does anyone know the author/publisher/website or source where we can get it? Thanks!
I am trying to get from Lesvos to Epehesus in the shortes amount of time around Sept.14. If I take the ferry to Ayvalik is there a good bus schedule from there to Kusadasi so that I can spend a day or two in Ephesus and then reverse the trip? Thanks for your help
Hello, I am traveling to Turkey this summer to visit my cousin who is teaching English at a university there. I am meeting her in Istanbul to see the sites there but am also interested in going to Ephesus. Is it possible to take a day trip to Ephesus from Isanbul? What is the best way to get from Istanbul to Ephesus? Any suggestions for off the beaten path things to do in Istanbul. Thanks!
Hi!! im coming all the way from California to Turkey for a short holiday ,in this time i would like to visit Ephesus i have always had an interest to see it! I would like to know if having a private guide would be possible, being that my time in Turkey is not long and i would like to spend some time in Ephesus. Also how much would the tour be! thanks so much!!!
My husband and I are interested in hiring a private guide while in Ephesus, and the only company I've found that will allow us to design our own tour (Ephesus, Mary's House, Terrace Houses, and Ephesus Museum, and perhaps St. John's Basilica if there is time) is EphesusTours.biz. Can anyone recommend this company, or any other company that will allow us to make up our own itinerary? EpheusTours.biz is licensed by TURSAB (Assoc of Turkish Travel Agencies) and it looks legit. But I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has used this company or can recommend another. Thank you.
I will spend 2 weeks in Turkey this summer and would like to see Ephesus and Virgin Mary house. Does anybody have idea how much can be a private tour? Exploring Ephesus on my own is also an option... Need advice and recommendations, thanx in advance!
anyone have info about concerts, preferably in the amphitheater, between september 15/october 15 or thereabouts? Thanksthanks Carl

Hello, Is there someone who has the programme for concerts or other events at ephesus for 2009?? Thanks in advance!! Monica
HI: We are a group of 4 adults we are taking a cruise and we will be in izmir in october, we don´t want a tour, but we need advice in which bus taxi or minbus we have to take to arrive to Ephesus and were do we have to take it? is it a long way ? more than 1 hour? thank you! Maria
1. Is it easy to identify the bus or mini bus that goes to Ephesus? 2. When you leave the ship, where do you walk to to catch the local transportation? 3. How far is it? 4.How much does the local transportation cost? 5. Is it safe to walk? 6. Is there a way to get from Ephesus to St. John's Cathedral and the Virgin Mary House? 7. Is transportation back as easy as getting there?
You mentioned that you did the walking tour in one and a half hours, did you have a guide, how did you organize this. I feel this amount of time will be enough for my husband and I in the heat although we would like to see the main attractions. How much did the taxi cost to take you there and wait and bring you back ?. Thanks for your help. Jacko 34
How much does a Taxi from the port cost to Ephasis? Are they safe? Are there buses to the site? oR TRAINS? Is it easy to get there? Or should I take a shore excurcion rom the ship? I will be traveling on June 7 2008 Splendor of the seas.
Im travelling this region with my family (two adults three teenagers) in July and have priced airfares. They are prohibitive. Can anyone tell me how far it is by road, do buses go this route, how many hours will it take? Do we book? Thanks for any help
Re: Kusadasi/Efes I would appreciate the CURRENT approximate rate for a taxi or mini-bus for a family group ( 9 of us!) round-trip from NEAR the port. We arrive in June '08 for a VERY short stay-enough for Ephesus and a bit of time in town. Further, any suggestions for a LOCAL place serving good Turkish Doner Kebabs in those big white wrappers? We don't mind walking for a good LOCAL meal ! Also, if you are arriving by ship for only a day, no visa is needed. I appreciate your response! Carole
Hi - we'll be coming into Ephesus/Kusadasi (by cruise) for about 9 hours in May. We'd like to explore on our own. Can anyone suggest what we should do/see? How is the best way to get around? Do we need a guide? Also, any specialty food/drink we should try? What should we shop for? Thanks for your help!
Good morning, Please advise what concerts are featured at the Ephesus Grand theatre in May and June 2008 and where can one make reservations and obtain tickets. Thank you. Rlease note my correct e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Does anyone have a recommendation for a reliable and interesting guide for Ephesus?
We we would like to take the public Bus from Kusadasi and understand to pick it up at the "Bus Square". Is that near the cruise port? Also, where do we get off in Ephasus? We understand the main entrance is "on top of the hill". Does the bus stop at the main entrance? Can anyone give us directions to the main entrance? Is dolmas minibus and if so, is it better to take than public bus? Also, we'd love to see a camel wrestling performance in the theater. Do they have one in late November? Thanks for all your help.
I will be in Kusadasi on the cruise ship Millenium the end of this month. We will have two days there. I planned on one day in Ephesus (is that enough or too much time?)but am looking for suggestions for the second day. Should we visit Selcuk and is it possible to get there without a car or tour?
There are six of us going on a cruise in October. I am wondering what is the best way to see Ephesus, the 7 hour organized tours from the ship cost112 per person. With 6 of us its quite a bit of money. Is there a better way for a group??
how and where can i get buy tickets for shows ephesus
hello all. i hope you can help me out here. i am planning to go to ephesus from kusadasi. but i am on a tight budget. i heard that i can take a dolmus from kusadasi to ephesus. where in ephesus will the dolmus stop? will it be at the gates of the site? also, how much does it cost? from ephesus, how do i get back? how do i go to the dolmus station in ephesus? thanks!
I heard that each January is the typical turkish camel wrestling festival and I wonder if anyone can share of his ( hers ) experience in visiting the Selcuk area this time of year ( hotel & environments etc.). I would like to come by car, because for me it is a relaxed 2 days trip and I can always travel around a little. Much obliged, yours Flo
A friend will be in Istanbul soon, and she wants to see Ephesus, but she will be by herself. What is the safest way for her to go there? What is the most reliable and possibly the best price? Thank you....
I would like to go to Ephusus from the cruise port of Ismir. Are there tours available other than the cruise tours? I would like to travel with 2 or 4 other people if possible. Maria
Seeing Ephesus will be a dream come true for us. My wife has limited mobility. She doesn't need a wheelchair and does well with a cane. Is she going to be able to see many of the sites? Are there any tour guides that you can recommend? Thanks so much.
We will be taking a tour offered by the cruise ship to Ephesus. The cost is49 without the Terrace Houses and99 with them. Is it worth it.
I am on a cruise in May. What is the best way to get to ephesus - take a cab from shore? other?
