On our Eastern Mediterranean cruise we had a port day in Kusadasi, and opted to do a private tour with Samyeli Travel because it gave us the flexibility to see more of the sights we wanted to see in Ephesus. The vehicle was comfortable, cool and clean and the driver and guide were friendly and accommodating. We were able to see Mary’s House first, before it became too busy, the ruins along with the Terrace Houses (a must if you’re at the ruins), and the Temple of Artemis. We enjoyed a traditional Turkish lunch at a local restaurant with Mehmet and Gocek and had plenty of time to shop at the port before returning to the ship. We had a very enjoyable day here with Samyeli Travel and will look them up again, when we return to Turkey.
