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.
