Kusadasi Ephesus Museum Excursion Reviews

A motorcoach ride away from Kusadasi, the Ephesus Museum is home to some of the most extraordinary antiquities in the world. The famous Lady of Ephesus represents one of the most unique and special depictions of the Greek goddess Artemis known today.

The tour of Ephesus was excellent.
Sail Date: August 2016
The tour of Ephesus was excellent. Let down only by unnecessary visits to expensive & touristy locations. It would have been better to do a drive by of the other historic sites.

Ephesus was the BEST guided tour I have ever taken! What an amazing and historical city! Do NOT take a tour bus booked from the city though! There were 15 of us on the bus and without our permission or even knowledge, on the way home he said he had a treat for us....and took us to a leather factory where we watched a fashion show (which was very cool actually) but then we were forced to exit throughout this store where the salespeople kept putting coats on us and trying to get us to buy leather goods!! We were all very upset at this. It took an hour for us to get out of there, and we really resented this forced stop that no one wanted. Other than that, we loved Kusadesi. Read Less

In the Cruise terminal building so you think they are genuine. But they are crooks. Take your money saying no hidden charges apart from entry fees. They rush you round the Ephesus main site in an hour in order to squeeze in factory visits (3 in all) Our English speaking (joke) Guide insisted on his buying our tickets in Euros even tho' they're priced in worthless Liras. He was creaming it. When he demanded more Euros for a bus parking fee we were on to him & refused. He threatened with police but we insisted upon return to port where we would meet with whoever. He gave in when we all closed ranks. Read Less

Ephesus is a must see experience. An amazing history with so many archaeological sites to see. Very enjoyable in April, with sunny, cool weather. Loved strolling down the ancient marble streets.

Kusadasi is how you get to Ephesus. Ephesus is great, although it was unbearably hot when we were there in June. And of course it is crowded. Kusadasi itself doesn't have much going for it. You can seek out bargains in the market - however this is really and exercise in getting the price reduced from a clearly inflated level to something close to reasonable. If you enjoy buying used cars you can enjoy Kusadasi. Read Less
