We had received a letter from the captain previous to our arrival warning of the possibility of terrorist activity. This came with the great advice to 'try not to look like a tourist'!!! Sadly, the hard sell on the streets has got harder as they have fewer tourists [disguised or otherwise]. Read Less

We took a taxi to Ephesus only we thought, but he had his tour well set up he took us to a jewelry shop, carpet making factory where we were given a tour, a store and another place where we drew the line and said 'No way'!!! He took us back to the port and we went to explore the Bazaar did not like it found the sales people aggressive at times. The restaurant person was clearly upset with us when all we wanted was a bottle of water for use of 'his' WiFi!! Read Less

We found Turkey rather tiring. The shopkeepers did nothing but hassle us. It was such a shame as it put us off, we felt that we could not look in any window without being almost dragged into a shop by the owner.

Amazing. We were able to get Holy Water from Mary's House, had a private Mass and got to see so much of the archeological sites.

Been there twice before and also been to Ephesus so just went ashore and looked around the Bazaar and had a light lunch in a restaurant with a lovely courtyard. It was a peaceful oasis in the middle of the city.

Having visited previously it was a delight to explore more of the back streets, finding those little outlets off of the tourist trail. Extremely wheelchair friendly.

As we had visited Ephesus twice before we decided to stay in Kusadasi and as we were there 30 years ago and keen to see if it had changed - it had but sadly not for the better!

Took a taxi from outside the Port. Went to Virgin Marys house. Saw the ruins, Leather Factory, Carpet factory. Purchased leather jackets. Great shopping in the Bazzar across the road from the Port.

There again we have been before and as in Athens if it's your first time and you are into the history of the place a visit to Ephesus is a must and there again we did the trip with the ship and our guide was very good. If you just stay around Kusadasi the sea front is a lovely walk but if you choose the town for shopping be warned as its one of the worst places to be pestered to buy, if they would let you look it would be more pleasant but they won't leave you alone and watch you don't get ripped off with lots of very fake goods. Bought leather jackets last time but from a shop we were taken to not just by the port. Read Less

About 6 years ago we spent 4 weeks in Turkey and been to all the areas available from the cruise ship, I would however recommend Ephesus as a site to visit. This port was interesting but stay away from the sellers on the street selling perfume, very cheap and nasty and may damage your skin, eg selling the best brand named perfumes, three bottles for 15Euros, now that is when the "danger signs" light up, for your own health do not purchase.
