    Ertunga from Felicity Travel was very helpful and flexible. He worked with me to customize the tour to fit my schedule. The places on the visited were amazing. Although the scheduled went like clockwork, I had plenty of time at each location to see the sites and understand the importance/history of each place. The guides such as Özgür and Ali were very knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly. Especially Özgür went above and beyond to make sure that I had a very good experience. I highly recommend this tour.

  • Priene, Miletus, and Didyma Full-Day Tour

    3. Priene, Miletus, and Didyma Full-Day Tour

    Kicking off from your port or hotel in Kusadasi, the tour begins in the city of Priene. This 2,500-year-old Ionian city was among the first to be planned with a grid system of streets. Set dramatically at the foot of a mountain side, Priene overlooks the Meander River.  The tour then moves onto the ruins of Miletos, near the Aegean Sea. Here you can explore the ancient theatre, built around the 4th century BC, which once accommodated more than 15,000 spectators. Here you can visit the well-preserved Bath of Faustina, named after the wife of Marcus Aurelius who ordered its construction.  Finally the tour moves to Didyma, which was once connected to Miletos by a sacred road during the antiquity period. Here you will visit the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, one of the largest temples from the Hellenistic Period, before being transferred back to your cruise ship or hotel.
