Begin your ancient Bodrum tour at Crusader Castle, which is the first structure that most visitors see, whether approaching from land or sea.

During the 5-hour private tour you’ll see St. Peter's Castle, the Myndos Gate, the Roman Amphitheater, and many more relics of Bodrum's ancient past. The Museum of Underwater Archaeology is home to the world's oldest known shipwrecks. See the Glass Wreck Hall, late Bronze Age shipwrecks, the Carian Princess Hall, and the amphoras, which were used for transporting and storing olive oil and wine. Next you’ll visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. The mausoleum was built in 355 B.C. by Artemisia, the sister and wife of King Mausolos. See the historical windmills standing near the Bodrum harbor. The windmills are made of stone and lined with wooden planks, and were in use from the 18th century until the 1970s. Stop at the Myndos Gate, built by King Mausolus in the 4th century. This is the only surviving gate of the 2 original entrances to ancient Halicarnassus. The last site on your tour is the Ancient Theater of Halicarnassus, which dates to the 4th century B.C. If you’re interested, you’ll have time for some shopping before heading back.
