A nice trip

It is a pity that this excursion does not allow the hotel to pick you up. I know Marmaris and was therefore glad that there was no obligation to take the bus tour through Marmaris. I found it irritating that there was no guide on site at the port of Rhodes and on the ferry to Marmaris. Longer passport checks must be expected.

Nice day trip to Marmaris with a lot of time on site.

Contrary to some other reviews, I cannot confirm that the excursion on site is purely a sales event. On arrival in Marmaris you can decide for yourself whether you would like to take the city tour by bus and find out in advance where the bus would take you. So we had over 5 hours of free time on site because we decided against the bus. This time was more than sufficient. The catamaran that is used to drive from Rhodes to Marmaris is quite fast and also offers drinks and a few snacks to buy. So you are provided with everything. You don't necessarily have to exchange money on site. We could pay with the EC card anywhere, even small amounts. Sometimes the euro is also accepted for payment.

A nice day trip

I had a really nice day. My tips: make sure you take a travel pill for the outward journey and especially for the return journey (many people were seasick). Bring a sweater for the boat, then you can get a breath of fresh air without getting too cold (especially in the morning). The guide of the day was a nice guy with a nice story in all languages. Very friendly and helpful. The trip to that gold shop was not necessary for me, but otherwise fine. Neatly drank my apple juice and waited in the canteen for the bus to drive to the town. Marmaris is nicely laid out. All very neat. Also the castle. Beautiful and neat. The whole scene reminded us a bit of The Good Place (that Netflix series), also all so neat. Great to stroll around or have a drink somewhere. So: have you never been to Turkey / Asia? Then this is your chance to check that off!
