I'm a brand new user, and wanted to get some help. My new wife and I will be going on the Royal Caribbean Splendour Of The Seas cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean w/ stops in Dubrovnik (Croatia), Kusadasi (Turkey), Santorini (Greece) and Corfu (Greece). We are heading there in early November, and wanted to know which of these excursions would be best to take while we're at a few of these stops. Anyone ever been on these excursions? Anyone have any advice on what to see/do while there? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks so much!
Port: Kusadasi (Turkey)
For Ephesus, I'd pick Ephesian Modus Vivandi (KD 28) out of the choices you list. Ephesus is the "must see" of Kusadasi, and this is the only one of the tours that includes the Terrace Houses (another "must see" within Ephesus itself). The Archeological Museum is another plus. I'm not so keen on the "feast" but....
Have you considered a private tour? They really aren't too expensive in Turkey and you might be able to find some others from your cruise to participate, which would bring the price per person down -- perhaps even less than the ship excursions.
