We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was charming and quite informative, answering our many questions. I walk with a cane and found it difficult to navigate the slick marble streets of Ephesus, but the guide was helpful and made sure I didn't fall. We were firm about not wanting to buy souvenirs or watch a rug presentation at the end, and he took us right back to the port after the tour. Along with our other excursion in the morning (horse ride to the beach, also excellent) we had a full, fun day in Kusadasi and really enjoyed Turkey.
Despite the constant drizzle, we really enjoyed our walk through Ancient Ephesus. The crowds weren't too bad, but the huge number of umbrellas made walking dangerous. Our guide was very informative. Because we did not have a map or a specific outline of sights that would be seen, we feel that we may have missed some interesting things as there were a lot of people in other areas that we did not go to. We did see the sights described in the tour advertisement. Beware of the carpet tour. Learning how carpets were made was informative but the endless displays of carpets that were presented to us, got to be too much. They brought in four people to try to get us to buy a carpet. We finally had to just get up and leave as we had told them twice that we didn't want to miss our ship. We were 10 minutes late getting back to the ship. Luckily there was a long line to get back on and we were able to board without any incident.
