Default Ephesus May 2011

Two of us doing an excursion to Ephesus in May on board Nieuw Amsterdam.

I enquired with Hello Ephesus about adding in the Terrace Houses and Sirince village and the standard $60+ ea tour became a $100ea tour for just two of us.

Is it worth the extra dollars to include those two after after the standard sites? or shoudl we just stick with the standard tour.

Of course we could get the cost down if anyone else in interested.

Just let me know on the thread.:-)

We happen to love Srince Village, have been there on all of our three stops in Kusadasi. It is a lovely little place and the ride up there is picturesque. Check out our trip report and pictures at http://www.bully4.us/blacksea2.html, Grand Princess Mediterranean Cruise Review and http://www.bully4.us/holyland.html for three different aspects of Kusadasi.

However, we have never been to the Terrace Houses, having been to many many ruins all over the Med and the world. Others who have gone there rave about them, though.

As with any shore excursions, it is all about what YOU want to see.

Have a GREAT cruise!

The Terrace Houses were probably my favourite part of Ephesus. Definitely worth the added expense. I have never been to Sirince Village though.

I don't know anything about Hello Ephesus, but I can HIGHLY recommend Ekol Travel. It was a private tour and very reasonably priced. We were met at the terminal by our guide with a sign with our name on it. The day was catered entirely to our interests and the tour guide (his name was Emre) and the driver were very knowledgable, fun and accommodating. Honestly, I can't say enough good things.

Regardless, you will have a fantastic time at Ephesus. Of all the places in the Mediterranean I have been, it is one of my favourites.
