There are taxi's and buses, it's only 19 km between the two cities. There will also be cruiseline excursions to both and there are many outside companies offering excursions as well. Just be careful if you go with an outside. You need to be back at the ship on time, the cruiseline excur's will make sure. Book outside and don't get back... you're on your own, literally.

Cheers, Neil

Depending on how much time you have there consider going in afternoon. Mornings are jam packed with tour bus's people in own cabs etc you can't see a darn thing. We went at 3pm and there were only about 15 people there. It was great, no crowds, able to take great photos without hordes in them
You have to run the gauntlet however to get off ship and away from port area

Just a thought on the afternoon tours: it gets stinking hot and there is no shade. It's a tough choice--crowds in the morning; heat in the afternoon.

But I would really suggest ship-sponsored tours in Turkey. The dock area is crazy with "deals" and you could really get taken. Just a word to the wise.

Hi
We just returned from the Med and had a great trip! At Kusadasi we hired a private tour through Meander Travel. We got off the ship first thing that morning and a guide was waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. We walked right to an air conditioned van and which we had to ourselves and managed to be at Ephesus right when it opened. We were ahead of most the tour groups and therefore the crowd was not bad. We had an excellent guide that spoke English and was very knowledgable. I would highly recommend them. They are on the web. Have a great trip!
