What an enjoyable day this was! Asli met us right on time at our hotel. She gave us shopping options and we chose to visit a farm and pick fresh vegetables - don't worry, you won't have to do all the work. We then went to her restaurant kitchen (at her home, outdoors) and spent a relaxing afternoon making several dishes. Asli had done a lot of prep work already so that we had time to make 5 or 6 things. We also learned about and sampled olive oils and wines. The meal was delicious and unlike what we found in restaurants. Maybe the highlight was that our son's favorite dish was green beans (!!) and now I have the recipe for it. Finally, we visited the winery where Ansi's restaurant is (we asked - no pressure!) for a wine tasting and purchase. We were delivered by taxi back to our hotel. This would be a great activity any time but I think we especially enjoyed it after 2 busy weeks of sightseeing.

Everything was super organized, although it sometimes made a chaotic impression, everything worked out great, thanks to the dedicated and always approachable tour guide. Booking the tour was definitely the right decision.

The best boat trip I've ever done. Had several stops where you could swim. Clear turquoise water, like in the Maldives. Good vibes on the boat fueled by summer hits.

I really enjoyed the trip, it's definitely worth it. In Bodrum it is also very beautiful, I definitely recommend it.

Great experience, several stops, good meal, very kind and pleasant staff. I recommend
