Beatutiful!   We had absolutely no issues with tenders going or coming back.  We had the best Gyros at a small cafe.

We decided we wanted a relaxing day and went to Paradise Beach.  I would skip this.  It is a very happening place during the summer but not much was yet opened.   Getting a taxi back was a major headache.

I am combining these because of lack of space.   Istanbul was very interesting and the tour guide was fantastic.   However, other than going out at night (we stayed out 'til 5am) and visiting the Blue Mosque, St Sophia's, and the Bazzar, I think it lacked compared to Ephesus.

Ephesus was beautiful.   We went to the House of the Virgin Mary and also the ruins.  Again, the tour guide was excellent.   For the price, including lunch, we thought the tour was a great value.

This was the most disappointing of the ports.   The highlight was the Acropolis and we couldn't wait to finish the tour.   Unforutnately, the crowds were out of control.   There were way too many people and many were pushing/shoving.

Amazing!   Beautiful!   We visited Capri, had lunch in Sorrento, and then off to Pompei.   The first two were by hydrofoil, and the last by bus.   Honestly, after seeing so many ruins, I didn't want to go to Pompei but I am so glad that I did.  I highly recommend this tour.
