We will be in port in Kusadasi on Thursday, May 24th from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM and plan to go to Ephesus and the Ephesus Museum in Selcuk.
We visited Ephesus before on a ship's tour but this time we would like to go at our own pace instead of on a group tour. Since there will be many people from the ships in port at the same time, is it possible that we may not be able to get a taxi to take us to Ephesus? And does the taxi drop you off or wait a few hours for you and then take you back to Kusadasi or on to Selcuk and then back to the ship? if we are dropped off there can we count on Taxis being at Ephesus to take us on to Selcuk and then back to the ship? We certainly can't take a chance that we miss our ship leaving!
Also, would we miss out on a lot of information about Ephesus if we don't hire a guide but bring our own guidebook? And has anyone used a guidebook and map that they liked?
Thank you so much for taking your time to answer my questions and concerns.
