What people are saying about Kusadasi

The tour was wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. Ephesus was amazing and there is so much to see! Our guide, Filiz, was fantastic and had so much information to share. She really moulded the tour to suit us as a group so we could get what we wanted out of the day. The small group experience was perfect as you could weave in and out of the bigger ship tours and get the best photos without queuing. Afterwards, Filiz recommended us a family run restaurant for lunch that we thoroughly enjoyed and would probably have never found without her!

Nice boat. They play music the entire trip (you have to feel like it) but the crew is pleasant and not intrusive. Program is fine with 3 swimming spots and short trip in between. Lunch is simple but good. In short, very suitable for a relaxed day on the water

Only to be recommended!!! It rained at first, but then we had sunshine. We headed for three bays and were able to go swimming. On the way back we could even watch dolphins swimming next to the boat and the captain made an extra stop. Food was good too.

The trip was good and definitely worth it. The staff was very friendly and the lunch was delicious. Good music, great atmosphere, what more could you want to have a nice day

It was so much fun! The crew is amazing and are all working together to make a great day for you!
