Izmir
Archaeological Site of Ephesus Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Although our experience with the Cruise line, Costa was poor, the visit to Ephesus was very interesting.

Rhodes
Grand Master Palace Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
We just walked around as the Cruise company cancelled most of our excursions.


Lindos Walking Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Our Cruise line disappointed us by cancelling many of our excursions (pre-booked) so we hired a taxi Driver, Mike, to take us around and he was more knowledgeable and cheaper and covered more area than what Costa Cruises charged and covered. Mike used to live in South Australia, so the conversation was continuous and very interesting. He was excellent.


Rhodes Old Town Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
You don't need to book an excursion to do this, we walked around and had a great time.


Street of Knights Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
not much to see and you can read up on all the historical aspects here.

Santorini
Oia Village Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Santorini is beautiful and our excursion consisted of a bus ride to Oia. We were left to wander at our leisure. Not worth the money Costa Cruises charged and most likely cheaper if we hired a taxi.

Mykonos
Port Rating: Not Rated
Our Cruise line, Costa, cancelled our tour so we wandered around the port and the town of Mykonos by ourselves. We found we were lucky and saved money. The town is beautiful and doesn't need a tour guide and within walking distance of the port.
