Turkey by day - Full day trip
Please do not forget your passport on this trip – you will not be able to travel!
Our excursion departs from Pefkos, from where our air-conditioned coach takes the road along the east coast of Rhodes to join the boat at the commercial harbour in Rhodes Town. Your excursion voucher will be exchanged for a boarding card before you board the boat. The journey to the bustling Turkish port of Marmaris will take around 1 hour. When you leave the boat , you will be told at what time you need to be back on board for the return journey to Rhodes.
After disembarking in Marmaris, you pass through Turkish immigration control. A professional Turkish guide who will take us, on a bus for a complimentary breakfast. We then will take you to The Gold centre, a Turkish delight factory and then onto the Bazaar. During the 10-minute ride, our guide will explain a few basic facts about Turkey and share some useful information. Once we reach the bazaar, we will walk together to what will serve as our meeting point for the day. This means that if you have any problems during your time in Turkey you will know where to go for help.
If you are shopping in the bazaar, don’t forget to haggle – it is expected of you. Great bargains can be had in leather goods, gold and carpets and there are many “designer” items (which are of course copies) at good prices. If you fancy something other than shopping, there is an impressive castle museum to be viewed, Turkish baths to be enjoyed and a nearby beach where you may relax. There are plenty of restaurants where you can sample Turkish cuisine and for those who are too busy shopping to stop for lunch, there are snack bars where you can buy baked pastries and kebabs and wash them down with apple tea or Turkish coffee.
Please note that credit cards and most currencies are accepted in Marmaris – it is not necessary to exchange any money for Turkish Lira and if you do so, you will not be able to change this back into Euros on Rhodes.
Duty Free allowances per person: 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars, 1 litre spirits, 1 litre wine plus a reasonable amount of other products for your own use.
