Totally recommended if you are having kids. Going here and there with two kids is not that easy, so I was a bit anxious about this excursion. Thank god our guide was brilliant! She helped us during the day and made sure we were comfortable. The day was interesting. We went to the countryside and visited some nice spots. I really enjoyed my time at the waterfalls. It was so relaxing to look around. The villages are so charming and they still maintain their original character. It was so nice to experience this with the kids!
Went with my parents on this tour yesterday, and it was really impressive. We spent our holidays mainly at the beach so we decided to explore the countryside a little bit. This tour was the ideal for us. There are so many interesting spots around Marmaris, I had no idea about. One thing that impressed me was the warmth of the people. They looked authentic, and welcoming. I wish we had more days, I’m really curious to visit other villages around the country now. Join this tour, it’s just great!!!
