Holidays in Kusadasi

Kusadasi is a town on the Western Aegean coast of Turkey which when translated means " bird Island " and when seen from the sea it resembles the shape of a birds head.

Once a small fishing village it has now become a bustliong holiday resort with lots of hotels, restaurants and bars along the promenade and around the marina.

If you are looking for shops then you will find a huge selection here offering bargains on leather goods, jewelery and carpets as well as the famous " genuine fake" designer goods.

Over recent years it has become a popular port for the cruise ships to call in due to having many places of interest within easy reach. These include Ephesus, the old city walls, Kaleici Mosque, Pigeon island with its castle and beautiful beach, Kirazli - a typical Turkish village and the famous Ladies Beach

For the younger and more adventurous visitors there are several water parks close by.

Getting around is easy with Kusadasi having a large  bus hub connecting the town to many other desinations throughout Turkey and there is also a daily ferry service to the Greek island of Samos.

Don't just take our word for it, read what our clients say...

Dear Mr. Koc

I've been meaning to write to you for some time, so say thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us.  We had 4 nights B & B at the Empire Palace Hotel in Istanbul, which was wonderfully central, with friendly, helpful staff, and then flew to Cappadocia, staying at the MDC Cave Hotel in Urgup, which was delightful.  The location was outstanding and the hotel quite unique.We have travelled all over the world and I can safely say that this holiday was one of the best - full of new experiences including a trip in a hot air balloon, visiting underground cities, ancient cave dwellings with amazing frescoes and fabulous landscapes. It was fun and exciting. For the first 2 days of tours in Cappadocia we went with the local representative, who were excellent and our guide, Mustafa Sahin was outstanding.

Thank you again for a brilliant trip and we will recommend your company. We may be interested in Croatia next year.

Yours sincerely,

Barbara Lewis, 30.7.2018

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
