What You Can Expect

4x4 Jeep Tour of Bozburun Peninsula from Marmaris

See the beautiful views of Marmaris from your 4x4 Jeep

Leave your centrally located Marmaris hotel by open-top 4x4 jeep, and then travel deep into the countryside that surrounds the city. Go off-road to scout out the secluded bays and mountainous peaks that typify the rural landscape, and make the most of the sun beating down on you with the wind in your hair!

After roughly two hours of exploring the countryside, stop for a drink (own expense) and then continue to Kızkumu. Also known as Maiden’s Beach, the shallow-water shore stretches some 1,970 feet (600 meters) along Orhaniye Bay. According to legend, the beach was formed when a maiden tried to flee from local pirates to her lover by creating a causeway across the bay. The sand ran out and she flung herself into the sea rather than give herself up to the pirates. Use your free time to sunbathe, swim or go for a paddle, and look out for the sculpture of the maiden that watches over the beach.

Travel onwards to the historical town of Turgut, known for its production of quality Turkish carpets. Stop for lunch at an outdoor restaurant and enjoy a BBQ meal featuring succulent meat, fish, vegetables and bread. Drinks are available at your own expense.

Continue to Turgut Fall, a lovely waterfall just outside the town that’s surrounded by forests and leafy plants. No higher than 23 feet (7 meters), Turgut Fall is popular nonetheless and its ice-cold pools combined with the fragrant pine forests make it a pleasant spot to escape from Turkey’s midday sun. Swim, go for a paddle, look out for fish or simply sit and drink in the area’s beauty.

From Turgut Fall, travel to Bayir, a village perched high in the hills of Bozburun Peninsula. Have your camera ready to capture incredible views of the peninsula along the way. In the village itself, enjoy roughly half an hour to explore at leisure. Shop for souvenirs or perhaps check out the village’s 2,300-year-old tree; good luck is said to be yours if you walk around it three times. Your day trip then finishes with a hotel drop-off in Marmaris.

Okay, so there was a Jeep. And there was a tour. There was even the Bozburun Peninsula. After that, the description stopped matching the experience. The greatest amount of time was spent waiting: about two hours waiting for the other 12 Jeeps/60 people to tag along with waiting to pick up other customers who are in your Jeep waiting at more than one stopping point - the first to inform you there will be a water fight and you may rent water guns at that moment to participate, the second for a stop at lunch time even though it wasn't lunch - and waiting for those other 60 people to get back in their respective Jeeps to go. The second longest aspect of this trip, about 1.5 hours, was the water fight, which though not announced on the description, was the real focus of the trip. The stops at the beach and waterfall were both 40 minutes, and the waterfall, sadly, was packed with other tourist and their discarded trash littering the forest. Lunch was okay, and the driver was polite, but this is not a trip I'd recommend.

Tour did not match description on viator! The stupid water fight was not mentioned anywhere in the description. The water used for water fights ruined our white garnments and soaked our cellphones! Moreover, we did not visit Bayir nor Turgut!! Driver was in a hurry the whole trip! He even took us back to hotel before everybody else!
