Full description
Explore the stunning ruins of Ephesus on this 7-hour sightseeing tour from Kusadasi Port. As it is a private tour you can start at any time you like, depending on the arrival and departure time of your cruise ship. A guide will take you around the breathtaking sites of the Roman and Greek complex, including the impressive Odeon Theatre, which could seat up to 1,400 spectators in its heyday. See statues carved into marble slabs, and the beautiful Celcius Library, completed by the Romans in 117AD, and perhaps the most awe-inspiring façade still standing in Ephesus, with its columns, statues and windows. Most coach tours to Ephesus skip the Terrace Houses opposite the Ephesus complex, but this tour will take you to the stunning former mansions of the rich, where painted walls, frescos and mosaics can still be seen. After a delicious lunch, the last stop on your tour will be Sirince village to experience a typical, laid-back Turkish village lazing in the Mediterranean sun.

A very successful day. Great and relaxed family day trip with two adults and three children. The guide (in English) was very relaxed and fully attuned to us. Pick up and drop off was as agreed and hassle free. Highly recommended!
