EPHESUS TOURS (P02) EPHESUS + TEMPLE Of ARTEMIS + HOUSE OF VIRGIN MARY (4-5 hours)
If those are ship's tours being offered for your sailing, then you will have enough time. The ship's Shore Excursion staff will schedule them very carefully.

If those are private tours offered by an independent company you need to check it out very carefully. Usually independent companies are very aware of the ship's sailing time and make sure you get back. However if it is a big bus tour taking passengers from several ships, you need to be careful.

Ephesus itself is huge. How much time you spend there depends on how much time you have! The Terrace Houses are a very popular addition to tours and of course involve extra time.

The Temple of Artemis is basically just one restored column in the middle of a field. However, it was one of the major places of power of antiquity and if you are one who feels the power of the gods and goddesses still lingering in ancient sites it is a place that may call to you. There is no need to spend very much time there.

The House of Mary is also not very big ... just a small house with a shrine in it. It really does not take much time unless you want to do private worship, in which case you would need to be on a private tour.
