We did the Eastern Mediterranean Cruise with Royal Caribbean in early August and opted for a private tour of Ephesus instead of one provided by the Cruise company. I must say, it was a very good move. Mehmet and his wife are a very friendly couple and were as friends to us. We did the Ephesus tour at our own pace (while we could see other people who were part of a tour running around following the tour guide). Mehmet had a comfortable and safe car to take us to a few sites. We were picked up early at the Port of Kusadasi and dropped off after our visits, leaving us enough time to do some shopping at the port. Will definitely recommend Samyeli Travel for anyone wanting to see the sights in Kusadasi and Ephesus.
