What You Can Expect
Your first stop is in Ciftlikkoy, one of the aforementioned villages that's typified by pretty stone farmhouses and fig tree-speckled fields. Enjoy a coffee break in the sun (own expense), and then travel further inland, passing through the mountains, to the peninsula’s highest peak. Stop for photos and drink in the powerful panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Continue traveling through the laid-back mountain village of Etrim where carpets are made, and then pass into Mumcular village. As you travel between villages and along the meandering country paths, your guide will share stories about day-to-day life on the beautiful Bodrum Peninsula.
Enjoy a break of roughly an hour for lunch and swimming in the small town of Mazi, an unspoiled town that sits atop a gloriously secluded cove. After a BBQ lunch, slip on your bathing suit and take a refreshing dip in the sea before continuing to explore the area.
In the afternoon, travel off-road through the shaded forests, breathing in the scent of the fragrant pine leaves as you look out for wildlife and flowers. Your route through the cool forest paths leads toward Bodrum, and your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off in the early evening.
This trip would benefit from having a more descriptive itinerary and include a map.
The guide was friendly, but there was very little educational or historical substance to the trip. How interesting is a dirty little turtle pond, or a spring featuring a squirt gun fight? We were held up about an hour because someone lost a cell phone and had to go back to the beach. All in all our day could have been better spent in a very beautiful area.
