  • Cruise travel to kusadasi

    by michealtomson Written May 14, 2011

    We will be in Kusadasi for one day, and we wanted a private tour for our shore excursion; however, the cruise rates for a half-day private tour were a whopping $823 per vehicle (mini van), and a full-day tour was $2,265!!! Most of these tours mentioned ending your day by "sipping apple tea and watching a Turkish carpet demonstration."

    We found a private, well-reputed tour agency called Sun Wind Travel Agency that will take our family of 4 on a private tour suited to our own pace and with flexibility of where we want to go and how fast for 4 hours. We basically wanted their 4 hour tour of Ephesus (it's a way to get there before 8 a.m. when the busses arrive!), the Terrace Houses, and the Temple of Artemis which will cost us 50 EUR per person.

    Ship to Samos, Greece

    by Saagar Written Oct 12, 2010

    There is a daily ship to the Greek island of Samos every day. It is for the most pary ferrying daytripping tourists. You can certainly leave from Samos, just ensure you have your papers/passport etc ok. Daytrippers have their passports taken and left at the harbour immigration office and when getting back from shopping in Kusadasi or visiting Ephesus get their passports back upon departure from Kusadasi harbour.

    DOLMUS TO SELCUK

    by balhannah Written Jul 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A Dolmus leaves for Selcuk every half hour. This bus also takes you to the Water parks and to the Coastal Resorts. Lovely views to Kudasasi as you wind your way around hills. If you want to go to Ephesus, they will drop you off at the roadway that goes there, (tell the Driver when you get on, only a short walk) or......you can go into Selcuk (some good sites to look at here) and a catch a Taxi the short distance to Ephesus.
    The dolmus station is just on the edge of the main shopping centre, only a short walk.
    Location.........Kahramanlar Caddesi, the southern end.
    Usually a map will show its location, or local people will be able to help, most can speak English.

    The cost of a Dolmus to Selcuk in 2009 was 4 t/l (8t/l return trip)

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kusadasi lies at a distance of 90 km to the south from the region's largest metropolitan center of Izmir. Usually the most of excursions to Ephesus start from there. Great part of tourists get to Kusadasi by cruise ships.

    But you can also reach Kusadasi by bus from Izmir (2 times an hour, 1.5 hours in a way), Pamukkale (12 times a day, 4 hours in a way), Istanbul (5 times a day, 10 hours in a way), Ankara (10 hours in a way), Antalia (2 times a day, 8 hours in a way).

    Getting from Vathi (Samos) - Kusadasi (Turkey)

    by lilmisswongy81 Written Jul 11, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Book your ferry at any tourist agency office in Samos. They all charge €30 one way so no need to shop around. At the Turkey side, they charge €10 for port tax + €15 for a tourist visa. Ferries leave twice a day 08:00 and 17:00 and take 1.5 hours. We booked our 17:00 ferry the morning of. You need to be at the ferry dock, at passport control 30 minutes before departure.

  • Kusadasi to Izmir airport

    by dmukuld Written Dec 27, 2007

    The nearest airport for Kusadasi is the Izmir airport which is 80Km away. If you have a daytime flight you can take a bus from Kusadasi otogar( bus station) to Izmir otogar and then a connecting bus to the airport. However for early morning flights there is a problem as taxi is the only way to go if your flight is before 9 . The usual taxi charges to airport are 90YTL but you can negotiate. I got it for 70 YTL..may be because of a off season. You can tell a taxi driver on any of the taxi stands in the city in advance to come to your hotel and give a little advance money.He ll come even at 4 in the morning.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a dayley boat from Samos to Kusadasi from Vathi harbour. Take this tourist boat and you'll reach Asia in less than a hour. Just a little bit expensive 40€ for ticket + 10 € for visa, or 70€-100€ if you include a visit to Ephesus, a famous antique city nearby.

    Kusadasi Dolmus and taxi

    by miman Written Jul 27, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Within Kusadasi, the best way to travel is to take the "dolmus" (minibuses). From town center, you reach in minutes any direction you wish: hotels, beaches, neighboring villages... They are allowed to take up to 15 passengers and their prices are set by each municipality.

    A more private way to tour in the village are taxis that are all yellow-painted cars, equipped with taximeters and recognizable to their sign "Taksi". Prices are also fixed by each municipality. Mind the day and night tariffs.

    You can use Dolmus inside Kusadasi, it cost less then 1 US dollar.

    Samos the land of the living Dead

    I whent on a day trip to Samos left at 0800 no boat back till 16:00 was the most boreing day ive ever had it seemed like an age waiting for the return boat, the only thing good to say about it is the Greek men they were all like adonis georgiouse to look at, but the island was like the land of the living dead, more suited to a retirement island for the infirm, if I had gone there on holiday I would have got the boat to Kusadasi and not gone back till the end of my holiday

    Mini Buses

    by dook Written Nov 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The minibuses are great for getting around kusadasi or even to go to towns further away. We took an hour trip to Ayden with a minibus and payd €3,50 per person.

    A fare around town can be had for 750000 turkish lira which translates to about €40,-. Just hail a bus and ask where the bus goes, "Centrum" or the name of your hotel/bar is enough. Pay during or at the end of your ride. Aks the driver to stop when you want to get off ("STOP" will do). If you ask for a destination drivers will tell you when to get off.

    This is the cheapest way of public transport and gives you a true turkish experience.

    The bus terminal ("Garaj") is just outside the centre and has buses that go everywhere. Do check out the last bus back if you want to go to another town or city.
