Overall rating

5.0 / 5

based on 1 reviews

The excursion was great! Everything went smoothly with the cards. As a little tip for hunger, I can recommend the Love Café with a clear conscience! Clean and is also good for us Europeans :) The tour guide should work with her kind in a bar and not with tourists. I don't want to include that in the rating, because everything else was really great! Instead of taking the bus in Marmaris, I recommend a taxi for €7 to the bazaar, which saves you an hour's bus ride.

Comfortable and safe transport. Marmaris was better than expected. No pushy sellers and a very nice city. A bus tour with a guide to various sights was included: short stops at a jeweller's, Turkish Delight factory and viewpoint, before being dropped off in the center and having the rest of the day for your own activities.

A great day trip. Stroll comfortably through the harbour, shop and enjoy a meal. If you want, you can also take a city tour. However, this is associated with a visit from dealers.

had a great time wasn't expecting a coach tour to bazaare. people friendly in marmaris. had 4 hours shopping

It was a super relaxed round trip by boat...recommended.
