Full description
The Anatolian peninsula in the center of Turkey has played an important role as a bridge for civilizations throughout the centuries. Learn ancient Anatolian art techniques in this 8-hour private experience with an expert guide.   First, on a visit to a large cooperative training institute, you will watch the local ladies at work patiently and skillfully creating Turkish carpets. Next, watch a skillful pottery master turning mud into a unique piece of art, then attempt to replicate it yourself.   Anatolians used volcanic rocks as well as precious and semiprecious stones with metals to create gorgeous examples of jewelry. The next stop will be at showroom packed with jewelry waiting for you to choose from.   Lastly, discover the Ottoman art of ebru (water marbling), an artistic way of reflecting the fluency and smoothness of water with exquisite colors and shapes on to a paper or a silk material. Enjoy a demonstration where the artist’s work will resemble a real magic trick.

Le titre de l'activité ne donne pas spécialement envie sur le papier. Mais en lisant la description, on se laisse tenter et au final, on ne regrette pas ! Je ne m'attendais pas à une aventure aussi variée et détaillée. Un guide au top. Un tour qui s'est avéré être un tour privé vu que personne d'autre n'avait réservé, ce qui nous a laissé encore plus de temps pour profiter, poser des questions etc. Difficile de dire autre chose que, allez voir par vous-même. Le rapport qualité-prix est franchement ce qui se fera de mieux et c'est au final bien plus intéressant et complet qu'un banal Red ou Green tour.
