Drive away from the bustle of the city to admire how diverse and amazing the Turkish landscape is.

On arrival to the rural area you will have a tea/coffee break in a local coffee house and the tour guide will provide you with general information about village life in Turkey. Visit a traditional village house to see the lifestyle of locals before going to the village mosque to learn about Islamic beliefs and customs. 

Then, meet a village chief and stop for a lunch at his house as you experience true Turkish hospitality and sample delicious local food.

Nice introduction to rural life in Turkey.

It was very cool. Good food. Away from busy and super-warm Bodrum. Good guidance from a young student. Only downside: we had booked for another day, because we were the only bookers at the time, the trip was canceled. Outing shifted by 2 days.

UNE TOTALE ARNAQUE

Mis à part la fabrication et là vente des tapis (un temps considérable à été consacré à la démonstration et la « plus value » des tapis de cette coopérative tenue par la famille du « guide »), aucun des points d’interêt n’a été respecté : Pas de guide francophone (contrairement à l’engagement sur la réservation) Pas de rencontre avec un chef de village Pas de déjeuner chez l’habitant mais dans un pseudo restaurant avec des plats au même goût consistant en légumes cuisinés à la sauce tomate et de riz (menu typique était il écrit ????) Boisson facturée 5 fois le prix normal (oui 5 fois : une cannette de pepsi vaut 2 lt dans une supérette : facturée ici : 10) Pour couronner le tout, c’est sur notre insistance que nous avons finalement vu la mosquée (ou plutôt la petite salle de prière) et comme pour tout le reste sans aucune explication d’ordre religieuse, historique ou sociologique. En bref, nous avons été considérés comme des « cartes bleues » susceptibles d’acheter des tapis.
