Izmir, Turkey

5 out of 5
Took tour which was a mistake - Ephsases is very interesting but it was unbearably crowded. Next time I would get out early and take taxi and get there faster than tour. Tour wasted one hout at carper mill and rushed through site.

Mykonos, Greece

5 out of 5
rented a car for about $50 with full insurance and drove. Much better way to see island

Istanbul, Turkey

5 out of 5
Unbelievable city! We took taxis everywhere and everything was awesome.
Don't Miss: Grand Bazaar, Egyption Bazaar, Dolomhere Palace.

Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt

5 out of 5
We took a ship tour and we only had 30 minutes at both sets of pyramids and 1 hour at a papyrus store. Next day we shared taxi and went around Alexandria and it was great
Don't Miss: Library of Alexandria

Pros: Everything on the ship and ports except tours

Cons: the tours where always rushed at the sights and then we would have to go to Thier shopping place and waste time

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
