FULL DAY CRUISE TO MARMARIS – TURKEY
Spend the day at the seaside resort of Marmaris and discover one of the most charming cities on the south shores of Turkey. Take an escorted tour or explore the city at your own pace, with round-trip transportation from Rhodes by boat.
Marmaris, a major Turkish port and resort which has developed round a large, sheltered harbor, is divided into distinct areas: the Bazaar, the local shopping streets, the hotel/beach resort, the Old Town, and the Marina. While shoppers will head for the Bazaar, famous for good quality copies of designer goods and brand names, Marmaris offers many other attractions: the fabulous Marina, picturesque Old Town area with a small Crusader Castle, harbor packed with wooden gulets, beach promenade, mosques, Turkish bathhouses (Hammans), interesting local shops and supermarkets.
Upon arrival at the port, you will be guided to a coach for a tour which is included in the price of the day trip. Tours usually provide local information and a bit of an overview of Marmaris, but always involve visits to consumer outlets: leather, carpet, gold, Turkish Delight, etc. This is fine with many visitors but others dislike being herded into shops and factory outlets. Do be aware that you are not obliged to join the tour and are free to make your own way from the port to the town and back. There are always taxis available–just confirm the price before the journey, making clear which currency you are using. Do ensure that you are clear about the time of departure from Marmaris and the time you are expected to be back at the boat.
