Begin your private tour at your choice of times, with pickup at your hotel or cruise ship dock. Most people then head to Ephesus, which is located a short drive from Kusadasi.
Your private guide takes you through the well-preserved ruins of the ancient Greek and Roman city, pointing out highlights including the Gate of Mazeus and Mithridates, the Great Theater, the Odeon, the Library of Celsus, the fountain of Trajan, the Temple of Hadrian, and more.
Stop at the Temple of Artemis, which stood close to Ephesus and is marked by a single remaining column. Then visit the Meryemana (House of the Virgin Mary), a site that's sacred to both Christians and Muslims, and discover the legend of the Cave of the Seven Sleepers, another story that's common to Christianity and Islam.
You'll take a break for lunch, and be returned to the port or your hotel in Kusadasi at the end of your tour.
