Beyond Bodrum - Explore The Peninsula
This tour gives us the opportunity to see what lies beyond the Bodrum town limits. Our local guide takes us on a tour of discovery around the Bodrum peninsula. We begin with a drive through the summer holiday town of Bodrum and continue to the highest point on the peninsula to view the historical windmills (no, you are not in Mykonos!). This is a good stop for your guide to provide us with some historical information on Bodrum. This is also a "Kodak" moment ....looking down on SeaDream and the Bodrum Port. Our next stop is at the historical Myndos gateway where Alexander the Great entered into Ancient Hallicarnassus in 334BC. We continue our journey through the village of Ortakent where we will make a brief stop at the Ortakent traditional Turkish Public Market. Continue through local olive orchards and enjoy a beautiful view of the Bodrum Bay. Ahead lies the village of GUmUsluk, whose name is derived from the Turkish word "GUmUs," meaning silver. Refreshments of Turkish pastry with cheese are served in a local authentic fish restaurant at GUmUsluk, where strict building conditions have maintained the seafront's original fishing village charm. Ponder the fact that your feet are on historical ground, as you stand at the harbor front of ancient Myndos. At low tide, one can literally walk to a small island situated to the right of the cove. The tour concludes with a scenic return drive to Bodrum and the ship.
