What people are saying about Marmaris

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.

Really nice trip with beautiful views and the swimming breaks at the coves we’re really fun. They also provide float vests for those less practiced at swimming which is nice. Lunch options were chicken and beef with rice, chips and salad (vegetarian options would be nice).

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.
