Itinerary

Times are subject to change etc

When does my tour start?
This is a private tour and can be scheduled around your cruise ship porting times.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
We schedule your return to port to ensure you arrive in plenty of time to re-join your ship - normally 1 hour before the scheduled sailing time. Where you have free time after the end of your tour, then it is your responsibility to ensure you re-join the ship on time.

All tour times are based on Shore time (ie local time, - not ship time)

PRIVATE TOUR 

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will take you to the start of this tour.

After meeting with your tour guide we will have a 20 minutes drive to Ephesus area. We will start visiting one of the main highlights in Turkey, Ephesus, one of the 12 cities of Ionian League (an ancient Greek district on the western coast of Asia Minor) is located near Izmir. As a port city it was a major departure point for trade routes into Asia Minor.

We will walk through history along the marble streets lined with wonderful public buildings, among them the Baths of Scholastica, the Library of Celsus; it was built in the beginning of the 2nd century A.D. by Gaius Julius Aquila to be a memorial to his father Gaius Julius Celsus Polemanus, the proconsul of Province of Asia. , the Temple of Hadrian and The Grand Theater are two of the most impressive buildings in Ephesus. Grand theatre was built in 3rd century B.C and it was later expanded to 24.000 spectators by the Romans in the 1st century A.D.  After visiting Ephesus there are a few souvenir stands, cafeterias and also bathroom facilities.

After visiting Ephesus we will then drive to St. John’s Basilica, it is believed that the evangelist St. John had spent his last years in the region around Ephesus and buried in the southern slope of Ayosolug Hill.  At St Johns Basilica you will have time to discover the grounds and there will be plenty of photo opportunities.

The tour will then continue to Artemission Temple, this used to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world as our last stop before drive back to Kusadasi town center and port.

The tour will conclude with a drive back to Kusadasi town center and port.
