Tour and guide brilliant but why did we have to go to the Jewellers??? None of the group were interested and this took time away from looking around Kusadasi. Also there is a €14 port tax per person to pay which I didn’t know about at the time of booking, only when I received a call from the tour company during my stay in Samos, be transparent and explain all of this please.

It's worth the trip! The organization of Ephesus is very impressive. Cons: 1. The port fee is 12 EURO per person (there should be information in the description about the amount of the fee). 2. Free time in Kusadasi was too long! Pros: 1st cruise, views, speedboat quality. 2. Guide and his knowledge. 3. Tasty food (extra charge).

Maybe I didn't read it right, but I expected a trip to Ephesus and Kusadasi. We also got this, really great, but we should have been spared the trip to the jeweler. Annoying sales trick. The tour guide is great and knows a lot to tell. Ephesus is truly breathtakingly beautiful. Kusadasi is fun for a while, wouldn't have missed it.
