Tour Details

Stroll through the historic small towns and villages of Turkey and get a glimpse into the history of this magical country on a private tour. You'll leave the port city of Marmaris and head to the small bayside village of Orhaniye. Tree-lined mountains surround the spectacular azure bay, referred to by locals as Kizkumu, meaning Maiden's Sands.

Legend has it that, in an attempt to reach her lover, a young woman filled her skirt with sand, then walked forward as she filled the sea with sand, drowning when she ran out. In the shallow waters of the bay, you'll find a statue of the maiden in question. In the bay, there is a sandspit you can walk across that gives the illusion of walking on water.

Once you've had your fill of legend, you'll head to Bayir Village, touring through the surrounding hills and valleys. This will be a great opportunity to take panoramic photos of the peninsula. The village of Bayir dates back to 200 BC and features a 2,500-year-old Mosque. You'll also find the Wishing Tree there, a 2,000-year-old tree fabled to bring you good luck if you walk around it three times and wish for happiness,

The last stop of the day will be Icmeler, a resort town on the Datcha peninsula featuring another sprawling view of the bay below. After that it's back to port.

This private tour is available year round. The tour leaves at 9am from the cruise ship terminal in Marmaris. Your ticket includes tea and coffee. Book today for a wonderful Turkey excursion.
