    Yes they'll make the trips available, but if for any reason you have to cancel or postpone, your money's gone and won't - repeat won't - be coming back to you. Not even to book for something else.

    Unique Suggestions: Use another agency

    don't be conned

    by barrysheekey Written Jan 28, 2006

    On the introduction meeting, your rep is there for the sole purpose of selling you as many excursions as possible.
    These same trips can be bought in the resort for a fraction of the price,and if you feel reluctant to use the local travel companies, let me assure you that they are reliable people,and their coach drivers are good and safe drivers.

    The Market Excursions

    by barrysheekey Written Dec 30, 2005

    When you arrive in Altinkum,you will probably see adverts for trips to Soke market,Kusadasi market,Bodrum market,and be told about the local saturday market at Yenihisar,just up the road.
    Unless you want to visit Soke,Kusadasi or Bodrum,Irecommend you save yourself a bit of money and just go to Yenihisar,as all the stalls are the same.(they travel around from town to town on different days).

    Unique Suggestions: Look carefully,before you plump for the first "bargain",as the same item will inevitably be for sale on another stall.
    If you are going to haggle for something,have a set price in your head that you are going to pay,and brush up on your currency conversions before you start,or you may end up paying more than the first asking price.But then again,it's half the fun thinking you've managed to snap up a bargain.

    Fun Alternatives: If the market is not up to expectation,(it can get a bit too much being pushed about),ttake advantage of the situation and do a bit of off the cuff sight-seeing.Ther's a lovely park in Yenisihar,wher you can sit and have a drink and watch the kids playing in the swingpark.
