Kusadasi House of the Virgin Mary Excursion Reviews
We were enlightened with the history of this site, and will cherish the ceramic bottles in which we put the holy water in.
This is an important place for Catholics, but for us (nondenominational Christian), it wasn't that big of a deal. It is extremely crowded and very small. You spend maybe a minute (if that long) in the house itself. The wall of prayers was reminescent of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem
Nice and worth the ride
The visit was great and we enjoyed it very much, next time will choose to attend the Mass..
This is a place where the Virgin Mary supposedly spent her last days. It is a place of tranquility and of prayer. It is a wonderful visit and one should do it for the spiritual value.
Great experience with an online tour operator. Pick-up and drop off were worry free. we saw much more than the ship tour. Went up the coast to more ancient and intact sites. Tour leader was a history major with a great sense of humor. he took delight in showing us how bad the other tour leaders were and how they made up a lot of the stuff they told their tours.
Awesome site especially if you are a Christian.
In our brochure it was called 'Mary's House' and was not what I had expected.
Outside there was a long wall covered in prayers and wishes written on pieces of paper and pinned on to each other,
As Catholics, this place had a certain reverence for us. Her final living place was small and simple. Takes less than 2 minutes to walk through. Outside people leave written prayers and requests in a nearby wall.
Fantastic tour - great tour guide (Khan)
Very crowded long queues also very hot time of year to do this - might be better in spring time. Was impossible to browse the town of Kusadasi without being pestered to buy something though.
