      Turkey Yesterday

      We are wanting to do a Bosphorus Cruise in the late afternoon. Is there any such cruise that we can take from Kabatas at about 5:30 or 6 PM and then return to Kabatas / Eminou at around 10:30 - 1100 PM. What would be the best options available? We are not so keen on dinner etc, however commentary or at least an audio guide would be a must. Thanks in Advance

      Selcuk Nov 13, 2015 at 8:58 PM

      We are to arrive at Izmir Airport at around 10:20 am and wish to process to Selcuk where we are staying for a while. One reads that Izmir-Selcuk train (there is one at 11:45 am) is a cheap option and that the railway station at the Izmir Airport is easily accessible. However some reviewers have commented that the trains which start from Izmir are crowded and getting on them with luggage and then getting a seat is a problem. Is it really that bad? Anyone with personal experience to help us decide please?


      Goreme Nov 18, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      We are travelling to Goreme next May and will reach Goreme at about 4 pm. We plan to spend two clear days after that. After reading suggestions on VT, we have decided to take the Hot Air Balloon and the Green Tour on Day One. The next day we plan to NOT take a tour but take a Dolmus to Uchisar and hike down the Pigeon Valley in the morning. Later, take a Dolmus to Cavusin and go up to Red Valley Plateau and thereafter to Avanos, Pasabag and Zelve. Request for 1. Comments and Suggestions on the overall plan. Can we do anything better? 2. Guidance on the second day when would be on our own.3. On the day we arrive, we have some hours before sunset. What can be done during this period? Is there time enough to go to Love Valley? We do not wish to visit Goreme Open Air Museum. Thanks

    • Fethiye blue cruise with family- recommend operator?

      by Momplanner Online Now Mar 18, 2010 at 11:23 AM

      Hi, We are an American family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids, ages 9 and 4) traveling to Turkey in early June. After Istanbul and Cappadocia, we're taking an overnight bus south (probably to Fethiye), to explore the coast, hopefully on a 3 night blue cruise, traveling east to west, as our next destination is Pamukkale. Can anyone recommend a good boating company for us? We decided against the Olympos-Fethiye route because we heard it was more popular with younger, party-ing crowds and we're looking for a more relaxing cruise. Since there's just the 4 of us, I imagine it's too expensive to charter our own boat and would need a cabin charter, unless there are smaller boats that might work for us? Many thanks!

      by mmoita1 Online Now May 23, 2008 at 6:11 AM

      we are a couple in our eraly 30's and are going to be in Fethiye area for 4/5 days. Is it worthy to make a cruise? I think 3 days might be to much.. Can you advice us?

      Here are the options..

      a)fethiye - Kas (1 night)

      b)fethiye - Kas (3 nights)


      c) Departure from Fethiye Harbour around 10:30. We enjoy some swimming and snorkeling in Ag Bay before lunch is served. We cruise along a few of the islands towards the famous Cleopatra's or Hamam Bay . Enjoy a swim in the ancient ruins of these Roman Baths. We have dinner and spend here our first night.

      After breakfast we depart for the beautiful Bedri Rahmi Bay , named after one of the first 'Blue Cruisers' who painted here in 1973 a fish on the rocks. Jump in the clear water or explore the island. Afterwards we cruise to Flat Island where we have lunch and swim or snorkel in the shallow water near a little beach. We set sail towards Tersane Bay , with the ruins of a once very important shipyard. Dinner and our last night on the boat.

      Today we cruise to the tranquil area of Göcek where we can swim, snorkel or just soak up some sun and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Last swim at Red Island .

      Can you advice us a good place to stay in this area?
      Thank you very much

      Hi fellow-travellers,
      We will be in Fethiye next week and have allocated Tuesday/Wednesday to do a boat trip, my ideal would be to start and end in Fethiye and go to Dalyan Delta, mud baths, Iztuzu beach plus more. Is there such a boat trip? if so which company is a good one to go with? what can i expect to pay, we have a car and can drive to start our boat trip in Dalyan but i thought it might be more scenic starting from Fethiye. BTW, is it too cold to swim at the moment?

      Thank you very much for your answers
