I want to see if there is a direct bus that travels this route please . If there is how do you book it and when does it go
Thanks so much
A friend and I are staying for a week in a timeshare at Pine Bay Holiday Resort. On this wonderful site I have seen how you can travel out by taxi to Ephesus .
I had thought of a trip to Samos as we are coming in April but was unsure if you could get a tour of the island
It would be great to have some more ideas and the likely costs involved as we are on a reasonably tight budget
We are staying in Kemer near Antayla.
How much should I expect to pay for a taxi from the port to ephesus entrance and back? Is the taxi ride per person or metered or standard fare?
How much do the tour guides at the entrance gates charge?
I understand there is no bus option from the port to ephesus...
I'm considering going to Kusadasi on a holiday, so Im browsing hotels... With my travel agent I have a possibility of staying in Sealight Resort Hotel. i've read that it is located 5km from city centre, 1 Km from the Marina, so I would like to know if there are shops, cafes, etc on the way to town, or if it is not possible to walk from this hotel into the centre. That's because I hate to stay in the middle of nowhere, having only the resort facilities. I like being able to go into town, not needing a taxi. What other suggestions do you have where I could stay and be able to profit from the sea but be near town at walkable distance?
Txs a lot
Hi, We are in Kusadasi for a day off the the cruise ship the Celebrity Solstice on June 21.

we are two couples with kids 3-6 yrs old - any suggestions what to do for the day- does not have to be for kids only - we are happy to see shops and markets too? thanks mandy
I am looking for a way to contact a jewelry shop in the bazaar. I believe the name is "Sema Sorulmaz." I got that off of a receipt I have. I was there last October and purchased my daughter a ring. She has lost it and I want to try and replace it for her. If I can find the jeweler and give him info from the receipt, maybe he can look it up and help me. I have a phone number, which for obvious reasons I can't use. If I even had an email address, that would be a start. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me. I know this is probably a long shot but I have to try.
can someone please tell me if kids can go in to the bars and pubs.
Is there a schedule for the ferry leaving athens and going to kusadasi? I'll be at the Holiday Inn Attica Ave on May 7, 2009 and want to take the ferry to kusadasi.
Can someone please give step by step instructions to get from Kusadasi to the Vergin Mary house and then from the Virgin Mary house to Ephesus. We will be driving from the port area of Kusadasi. Thanks.
Has anyone stayed at the Sea Pearl Hotel in Kusadasi and if so what is it like and would the area be easy to get around as my husband is slightly disabled thank you
We will be in Kusadasi in July and we would like to see Epheus and the Virgin Mary House. Is it possible to go by Dolmus to both? If we travel by dolmus to Epheus, and then from Ephus we take a Dolmus to Selcuk. Can we then take a taxi to the Virgin Mary House? Where would we catch a taxi? Do we have to ask the taxi to wait or will can we find another one to take us back to the dolums stop to get back to kusadasi. How much should the taxi cost to get from Selcuk to the Virgin Mary House and back again?
Should we just rent a car in Kusadasi and drive to Epheus and then on to the Virgin Mary house in Selcuk? Are the roads easy to navigate? Is the parking easy to access and how much does it cost to park? I would prefer to drive myself, and if it is EASY to get around, then I wouldn't mind doing that. Is there a car rental place near the port where cruise ships dock?
Thanks ahead of time for all the answers.
I would like to know what is the best way to get to Pammukkale from Kusadasi, I need to return back to the port of Kusadasi the same day before 4pm in order to catch the ferry.
My boyfriend and I are traveling to Turkey at the end of December. We plan to take an overnight ferry from Athens to the closest place to Kusadasi. Would the best place be Samos and then take a ferry to the mainland? Or are there direct ferries to the mainland?
Also, do ferries run there in the end of December? If not, what is the cheapest way for us to get from Athens to Kusadasi?
Hello! Can someone tell me something about hotel Dablakar in Kusadasi?
I've been trying hard to book round trip by bus from Istanbul to Kusadasi, but all bus companies sites are in Turkish. Does anybody know the site, or another way around to purchase tickets and would be a problem to buy it right on place in Istanbul?
Internet research suggests that for visiting ephesus, selcuk is the closest and nicest place to stay or perhaps the smaller village of sirinye. Your opinions on these three places and perhaps a choice of the best hotels in selcuk and sirinye.
Also, are ATM machines available readily in the smaller villages? Thank you.
CAN ANYONE TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT VARUNA ADA HOTEL IN KUSADASI?
Hello everyone, I have been asking about this tour/activity I came across a couple of days ago because it looks so amazing! I have had absolutely no answers from anyone at all. Has anyone ever done this, or even heard anything about it? It looks fabulous and I think that the picture ops alone would be worth a lot!
We are in overnight on the 20th of Nov. and had considered an overnight to Pamukkale but doesn't seem like such a wise idea and I admit I was kind of bummed but when I found this it looked pretty good!
For the people there, or who might be there during this time, if it was something that turned out to be worth doing (and a reasonable price) would anyone be interested in coming? Our ship rollcall is extremely quiet.
I would really appreciate any opinions out there! Thanks!
Hello, I am traveling with my husband and 5 yr old daughter in November on 3 cruises and we are so desperately over budget that my husband just might leave me over the pond! lol. We will be docking in Kusadasi on November 20th in the morning and then leaving again on the 21st in the afternoon. I would really like to see Pamukkale but the tours are too expensive for us at this point. Is it difficult to get there by bus? How often do they run? Ideally I'd like to get on a bus in the morning and then stay the night there and get on a return bus first thing in the morning from Pamukkale. It seems as though the hotels there are very reasonable! Just so you know, we are also going to be in Kusadasi for a day on the cruise before this one so we will get a chance to see Ephesus the week before. I saw a picture of the white pools years ago and have always wanted to see them in person. This is probably the only time I will ever be in the vicinity! This is our dream trip. And the reason we are cramming in three cruises at one time. Thank you very much.

Has anyone used Adelphia Tour Company for day tours from Kusadasi to Ephesis? We are coming by a cruise line and would rather not use the expensive cruise line tours. We want a smaller, more personal tour experience. Also, what is a dulmas as a method of transportation?

We have visited Turkey before so are quite accustomed to taking a dolmus.Actually, we really enjoyed this method of transportation. Would you please tell me where it would be the easiest to catch a dolmus to Ephesus when we come off a cruise ship?
We intend to visit Ephesus for the day.
Thanks ever so much.

My husband and I are off to Kusadasi in a weeks time and I am trying to find out if we have to get a visa. We will be staying for 1 week, I hold an Austrian passport and my husband holds a UK passport. Do we have to obtain a visa before we travel or can it be purchased upon arrival at the airport. Does anyone know how much it costs and if you have to pay in local currency?
