Bodrum City Sightseeing Walk

1. Bodrum City Sightseeing Walk

After meeting with your guide, begin walking through the narrow streets of the city. Start at Bodrum Castle, built by the St. Jean Knights on the site of a Turkish Castle built by sailors of the Menteşe Principality in 1261-1269. Bodrum Castle now serves as the Museum of Underwater Archeology. Visit the Mausoleum - one of the 7 Wonders of the World - and admire the breathtaking views of Bodrum from the Antique Theater. During this tour you will also visit the classical site of Myndus and the former house of a well known Turkish singer who used to live in Bodrum.

Kos Island Independent Day Trip by Boat from Bodrum

2. Kos Island Independent Day Trip by Boat from Bodrum

Just 12 miles off the coastline of Bodrum, the Greek island of Kos is near enough for a pleasant day trip. A speedy hydrofoil departs Bodrum at 09.00 AM, taking just 20 minutes to reach the island. On this day trip you’ll have the full day to explore Kos on your own. Take a walk along the picturesque streets and admire the architecture. Take in historical sights and ancient ruins, including the 14th-century Castle of the Knights, numerous temples and ancient Roman ruins. The major attraction of the island is Asklepion, one of the largest and oldest healing centers of the ancient world. Kos is said to be the birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of medicine, and just behind the castle is the famous tree of Hippocrates. According to legend, Hippocrates taught his students the art of medicine under the shadow of this tree. Enjoy some time relaxing on a sandy beach, lapped by the calm waters of the Aegean Sea. Be sure to return to the harbor before the departure time of 4:00 PM.

Have a good day ... a little long

The excursion is nice. Only the organization, certainly very difficult certainly, is to be reviewed. We were picked up at the hotel at 6:40 am for a departure from the boat at 9:30 am, which also left about ten minutes late. The excursion is not yet started that it's been 3 hours since you left .... we are distributing a rather nice flyer, with lots and lots of sponsorship but no prices displayed ... too bad! On your ticket it is written back at 4:30 p.m. when it is 5:30 p.m. and there was written no return to the hotel when fortunately it was well planned that we had inquired in advance otherwise we might have booked an additional return elsewhere ... if not overall it's good, the boat has several floors including one well sheltered to rest on the return. For this excursion I advise you to rent a scooter so much better to see the most beautiful landscapes. Thank you for this excursion.

Great day well worth doing - check activities in Kos before you go and passport control can be slow in Kos so get off the boat near the front- great cafe gplaza great reviews on trip advisor and had a great burger also well known for cocktails - really friendly

being in this part of Turkey, it's worth going to Greece. trip organized really well. time in Kos is enough for sightseeing and for food and the beach

Great to do
