We were actually staying in kusadase and searched for the tours. It was really hard to find someone operating this miletus tour but fortunatelly we found travel bazaar. We had almost 3 full days there and did one day ephesus and one day miletus tour. In Miletus tour we were just 5 people, so it was kind of private tour, which was great for us. We enjoyed Ephesus tour too and had really good time.
