Day 1 - Monday

Program dates in 2015 : 20-27 April, 27 April-4 May, 4-11 May, 28 September-5 October and 5-12 October 2015

Mandarin's rural setting close to the ancient Lycian Way makes it the perfect base for keen walkers. For those who are happy to walk by themselves, we are always pleased to offer suggestions and advice, but for those who prefer walking in like-minded company with expert local guidance, our dedicated Walking Weeks in spring and autumn are ideal. Run in small groups of no more than 8 people, these weeks will not only enable you to discover some of the most beautiful local scenery, but also to learn more about rural life in Turkey and to visit some of the lesser known archaeological sites.
For just €120 per person on top of the cost of your stay, the week includes five daily walks with our guide, a light snack or picnic lunch, and transportation on those days where we explore further afield. A reasonable level of fitness and sturdy walking boots are required but the routes are designed to allow you to enjoy the countryside at a fairly leisurely pace and not to test your endurance.

Upon arrival at the Mandarin Boutique Hotel, settle in your room and enjoy the afternoon.
Informal welcome dinner to get to know your hosts and fellow travellers.

  • When visiting churches and mosques, appropriate dressing

  • Your daily medication if and when needed while on tour.
  • Your tour voucher, the only proof that you have subscribed and paid for this tour.
  • Cash money to pay the not included entrance fees, drinks and lunch, shopping, tips…
  • Your cameras… Remember that at some sites and museums taking pictures may be forbidden or allowed midst payment of a fee. Inquire about using a flash;
  • Your swimming wear if you join a tour with swimming opportunity.
  • Possibly spare shoes, T-shirts, jumpers, socks

Visiting archaeological site may require good physical conditions and access to people with reduced mobility is not always possible. During visits and stops, the buses will be locked and under the supervision of the driver. Hence, if you wish, you can leave some personal belongings in the bus yet at your own responsibility. If not done at subscription, inform your tour guide as soon as you get on the coach about your specific food requirements so that the restaurant booked for lunch can be informed accordingly in due time.
