Ephesus shuttle
 
will 2,5 hours be enough in ephesus ? or should I need more time. ephesus shuttle gives 2,5 hours in ephesus. it seems to be the best way to see ephesus on our own for 23 $ pp.

Is the shuttle from the cruise ship or from the port area?


You could see a lot of it in that time & if it is hot it may be enough time to spend in the hot sun

Actually, the best way to see Ephesus is to take one of the ship's excursions. Don't forget that the price of the excursion includes your transportation, your admissions, and the services of an English-speaking guide. In my experience, the guides are generally quite knowledgeable.

Thanks

If you go on your own remember you need turkish currency for the Terrace Houses, they don't take Euros.

as everyone knows there are many options to rich ephesus from kusadasi horbor.But point is there are 4 or 5 places Absolutely need to see and whic is best and cheapest (thats important who wanna pay more :) To be honest best way is private ephesus tour whic is with vip car 2009 model proffesionel turist guide (must be local more knowledgeable) and lunch (If you go to a random restorant may be you pay more than your tour :). These important but much important is program is it full or half day with terrace house or not bla bla . The last week I was there fot the tour , all I have searched the best I know I will not extend if you want contact me i can share his contact detail with you .
best regard

Private tour cheaper than the tour offered by the cruise ship
 
Ephesus was our favorite port of call. Our guide was extremely courteous, knowledgeable about everything from antiquities, to agriculture, and even funny the tour is much less expensive than the ship offerings and far superior in terms of attention. We had an excellent Ephesus tours with Private DMC tour company this is the web site ephesustoursguide.com I would definitely recommend...

Touring the Terrace Houses was the the highlight of our visit to Ephesus. It was easy to imagine what life must have been like so many years ago for these wealthy Ephesians. And you can catch glimpses of what they really looked like! It was also interesting watching some of the restoration/ excavation that is ongoing.
