Itinerary

This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.

Our journey starts with us picking you up from your hotel or the cruise port.

Our first stop is the Crusader Castle, which is the first structure that most visitors see, whether approaching from land or sea. The castle now houses Turkey's Museum of Underwater Archeology, which holds treasures that have been excavated from Turkish waters.

During our 5-hour private tour we will get to see St. Peter's Castle, the Myndos Gate, the Roman Amphitheater, and many more relics of Bodrum's ancient past.

The Museum of Underwater Archaeology is home to the world's oldest known shipwrecks. We will see the Glass Wreck Hall, late Bronze Age shipwrecks, the Carian Princess Hall, and the amphoras, which were used for transporting and storing olive oil and wine.

Next we will visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. The mausoleum was built in 355 B.C. by Artemisia, the sister and wife of King Mausolos.

We will have chance to see the historical windmills standing near the Bodrum harbor. The windmills are made of stone and lined with wooden planks, and were in use from the 18th century until the 1970s.

We will stop by at the Myndos Gate, built by King Mausolus in the 4th century. This is the only surviving gate of the 2 original entrances to ancient Halicarnassus.

The last site on your tour is the Ancient Theater of Halicarnassus, which dates to the 4th century B.C.

After a 5-hour adventure we are being transferred to our hotels or cruise port.
