Ephesus is very hard to describe. It is only 20 per cent uncovered. It is unbelievable and how vast it is. It is one of the must see in one's lifetime. But have a guide to explain the various places at Ephesus.

Excellent example of ancient Greece. The city is on a hill and most touring begins at the top. We took the local bus from Kusadasi to the highway exit, then split a cab ride to the top with three people we met at the bus...More

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !

I don't know about the boat, but you can actually book a rental car online. Do a google search and you will find many rental offers.
Any nice beaches near by ?
