I was not sure whether to disembark because of the political situation. But there were no controls. The highlight Ephesus we knew from a previous trip.

* Kusadasi - We had been in this port before, so we planned on going on shore just to walk around and revisit that known locale. Well, we docked, went ashore and were very surprised to see that everything had changed so much! Before it was more “Turkish”, a bit rugged but very exciting, while today's Kusadasi has lost all its enchantment and intrigue very orderly but tasteless. The change was akin to how Roatan lost its charm when new ‘big’ ship docks and shops were pushed on the small quaint port. So, please avoid walking that port and take any tour! After a very short abortive walk, we went right back to the ship and enjoyed its almost empty peacefulness! Read Less

Fascinating site, very well preserved, much to look at and an excellent guide to tell you all about it.

Not really worth the time. No guarantee Mary lived there, circumstantial. Small building with little to look at.

Wow! We didn’t want to go to Turkey because of the political unrest but we are glad we did. We did a tour with Tours By Locals and shared a van with 5 other people. The total cost was 300 euros which was great. Our guide, Erkan Z, was excellent. We saw Ephesus, Virgin Mary’s home and went to a lovely lunch. And of course we did a rug place. They were beautiful, but we couldn’t afford one! The city is modern and clean and friendly. It is 95% Muslim but not all fundamentalists. We would go back in a heartbeat. It is also inexpensive.

Kusadasi, Turkey absolutely amazing day. We were toying between going horse riding or going to Ephesus. We decided on the latter and we wasn’t disappointed. We took a private tour from outside the port for €140 total so I guess if more of you it’s cheaper but we were by ourselves and had a fabulous guide all the way through. We then went to see other sites including The Temple of Artemis, Seven Sleepers plus others. We stopped at a pottery barn and saw a demonstration. Such a fab day Read Less

Kafkas spice market (right near the port entrance) is a great place to pick up some snacks and souvenirs. They're very honest and won't try to charge you overinflated tourist prices.
