My partner and I joined Barbaros for a superb day kayaking. Paddling is so much better than sitting on an overcrowded boat. It wasn't hard work, only light exercise. The group was small. We visited Kekova and had a great lunch. The salads were truly...More

Barbaros was very laid back and fun to be around as well as knowledgable about the history and the region. Nothing was too much trouble. A day on a turquoise sea paddling over ancient ruins and jumping in the water. What’s not to love?!

Hello Pam. We have no more regular tours in the Bodrum area unfortunately. The only solution would be a private tour for you.
