I booked a private tour of Ephesus and the Terrace Houses with Meander Travel when our cruise ship came into port. This was one of the highlights of our trip.
They picked us up just outside the port in a clean air conditioned private bus for our 32 family members. Our driver and private guide, Amy, were fantastic. Amy's English was impeccable and her knowledge of the ruins was impressive.
They took us directly to the site where went on a fantastic walking tour of the ruins. The highlight was our walk through the Terrace Houses display. If you go to Ephesus you must visit this area of the site. It is incredible to see how well some of the people lived. Plus you get a few minutes of relief from the sun.
Amy the guide they arranged for us was a walking encyclopedia of information. She knew so much about Ephesus. She also had the ability to keep our group together and moving. She also arranged a private lunch for us after the tour that was one of the highlights of our trip. It was an amazing assortment of Turkish kebobs and salads at an incredibly responsible price.
We saved over 50% off the Princess shore excursion cost going with our private tour which was just an added bonus. Private is the only way to go.
