What people are saying about Muğla Province

What an enjoyable day this was! Asli met us right on time at our hotel. She gave us shopping options and we chose to visit a farm and pick fresh vegetables - don't worry, you won't have to do all the work. We then went to her restaurant kitchen (at her home, outdoors) and spent a relaxing afternoon making several dishes. Asli had done a lot of prep work already so that we had time to make 5 or 6 things. We also learned about and sampled olive oils and wines. The meal was delicious and unlike what we found in restaurants. Maybe the highlight was that our son's favorite dish was green beans (!!) and now I have the recipe for it. Finally, we visited the winery where Ansi's restaurant is (we asked - no pressure!) for a wine tasting and purchase. We were delivered by taxi back to our hotel. This would be a great activity any time but I think we especially enjoyed it after 2 busy weeks of sightseeing.

Highly recommend this winery experience. The food was absolutely outstanding and the service as well. Wine pairings were excellent and especially enjoyed the Zinfandel/Syrah mix wine. Chef came out and spoke with us a couple of times and even gave us some extra lamb, which was out of this world! Although small, the cellar was quite interesting and and another part of the great experience…..go, you will be happy you did!!!! This will be on our list as one off the best things we did on our tour of Turkey….and we did a lot!

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to visit the market with its high quality produce and friendly vendors. Asli provided a fun and educational experience in her home overlooking her farm. The food was divine and we met some great fellow travellers. Highly recommended. I will remember this experience and the opportunity to chat with a local and her family in her home for a long time.

Beautiful locations to visit and swim in the Aegean. Helpful staff. The Cleopatra island is an extra nominal charge, and worth the exploration and experience.

Fun day, good meal and 1/2 the price of the identical ship excursion.
