Trips out

We're going to be in Icemeler in August, where is the best place to book boat trips etc? Last year we booked through our Rep but I've heard you can get better deals elsewhere, advice please.

Thank you

Hi Debbie

There are plenty to pick from you will see lots of different places to book around the shops, beach path or take a walk to harbour and have a look at the boats.

Last year we paid £10 For an AI Boat Trip but there are private hire too.

Enjoy.

I would agree with blondie and Sue. There are plenty of places dotted around the resort where you will be able to get any of the trips you want and at a better price than the reps offer. If you book a few trips with the same place you should be able to negotiate a good deal. Eric at April Travel is excellent and will take his time to get you exactly what you want with no hard sell.

Another vote for Eric at April travel. Gives you what you want and will not try and sell you something you dont want or need. he has been there for years and has many returning cutomers

If you feel a wee bit braver, take the dolmus to the Otogar (bus station) in Marmaris and jump on a bus to a huge variety of nearby towns and villages. Dacta is supposed to be very good and is around 1 hour away

A favourite trip of mine is to get an early water taxi round to Turunc and have breakfast at the restaurant on the quayside while I watch all the day trippers arriving. I also like to go early through to the bazaar in Marmaris when it is not too manic and have a coffee at my favourite café in the centre. Both fairly low key but you can come and go as you please and the only cost is the fares.

Have to agree Iain about Turunc, though I prefer to get the dolmus through and water taxi back. The dolmus through the steep winding road is a little scary but views are brilliant

Eric is a great guy...I've been to Icmeler a few times and always used him, looking forward to booking my trips next month. I once stayed in Marmaris and still booked my trips with him.

I also like the water taxi to Turunc (great little village, no hassle to buy). I get the dolmus back to Icmeler.

I have done the Akayaka (I hope I spelled that right) trip twice but booked through Icmeler online as I believe they are the only ones who do it? I could be wrong. That's a great day out.
