Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Pick up point is always outside the hotel close to security gate / mian gate of the hotel.
Start the day with a morning pickup at your Fethiye-area hotel, including hotels in Oludeniz, Hisaronu, Calis, and Ovacik, then travel to the Fethiye’s celebrated Tuesday market. Exploring with a guide means you can navigate the maze-like market with confidence, finding the best stalls to shop for fabric, shoes, bags, souvenirs, spices, and more.

Following the guided market tour, you’ll have free time to keep shopping on your own before heading to your next stop: the biggest gold center in Fethiye. Browse pieces made by local artisans, then stop by a nearby Turkish delight factory to try samples of the classic sweet.

Continue to the ghost town of Kayakoy, (about a 30-minute drive,) and learn the story of the onetime Greek community that was abandoned in 1923. Keep your camera ready as you wander through the eerie, empty town, where thousands of houses, along with schools, chapels, and churches, are crumbling after almost a century of neglect (admission to Kayakoy is not included).

Finish the day with drop-off at your hotel.

I have serious concerns about this tour, which was unsafe and offered nothing of value. First of all, our family of 2 adults and 2 young children was picked up from our hotel by a friend of the tour guide and driven in a small, dirty car to a meeting point just outside of the market. There were 5 other people in a group that had come with the tour guide. The tour guide simply told us all to meet back at a given time and left. He did not show us around the market, nor were we taken to a Turkish delight factory or gold centre. We arrived at the meeting point 15 minutes before the scheduled time, and there were several unfamiliar coach buses and tour groups that came and went. 15 minutes past the meeting time, and the tour guide was nowhere to be found. We were in a clearly visible spot, and it would have taken someone extremely unconcerned with their job to miss us. We tried calling the tour operator but no answer for a good 30 minutes. We nearly called a taxi to take us back to our hotel when finally the tour operator answered and confirmed the tour guide would be coming back for us. We waited, and were picked up 15 minutes later by the tour guide who arrived on an unfamiliar tour bus with about 20 other people, whom we had never seen before. We had seen this bus come and go along with several other buses 30 minutes prior, and my best guess is the tour guide never bothered to get off, nor did he take a roll of the tour guests to check if anyone was missing. At this point, we did not feel completely comfortable or safe with the tour operator. The tour guide was clearly annoyed at having to pick us up, which he tried to blame us for, and told us to quickly find a seat on the crowded bus, as the driver abruptly started to drive off. The next leg of the journey to Kayakoy, the driver of the bus nearly had an accident when driving down a very narrow lane, one tire went over the edge of the road towards a steep drop with houses down below. Kayakoy was very hot, though interesting, and the tour guide went into more detail about it’s history. After a decent meal at a local restaurant (which we were all brought to by the tour guide but paid for separately) we were taken around the ruins by the tour guide. There were a lot of steep inclines paved with loose rocks, and not suitable for young children. We were then separated from the group again and driven back to our hotel by the tour guide’s friend. Frankly, we deserve a refund and an apology.
