What people are saying about Muğla Province

Was very interesting. Unfortunately only in English, although booked in German. But you were informed beforehand via WhatsApp. (Had booked 3 more tours, it was the same, but you didn't get any information beforehand.) The lunch was simple but delicious. The cats and other front door (ducks, chickens etc.) were quite annoying when eating. The walk to the waterfall was a bit difficult. (not a good hiking trail) We weren't at the beekeepers. The carpet sales show was very well done. There was also a return transfer to the hotel, although it was not specified when booking.

We really enjoyed the tour, especially on site! It is wonderful. We had 3 hours on site in Pamukkale. This is enough to see most of it, but you could definitely stay there much longer. I would have liked to have had more time here and left out the stops on the way there and back in the stone and leather shop. These were only for sale. Toilet breaks would have been enough for me. Otherwise everything was pretty well organized and it was a nice tour.

Nice introduction to rural life in Turkey.

It was very cool. Good food. Away from busy and super-warm Bodrum. Good guidance from a young student. Only downside: we had booked for another day, because we were the only bookers at the time, the trip was canceled. Outing shifted by 2 days.

Interesting.

It was very interesting. Unfortunately we have not been able to see the house of the Virgin Mary due to crowds. We went to the museum afterwards

this is a very well worth day trip, with breathtaking views.
