Both in Turkey and Greece, winters may be cold and summers hot. On the other hand, you will most probably be visiting archaeological sites with more or less walking difficulties. Hence an adapted outfit is recommended :
Do not forget !
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.BE18 - Tire & Birgi
You may have strolled the typical Greek village of Sirince. Yet have you ever thought of visiting typical Turkish villages and learn about authentical housing, buildings, local foods, lesser know local handicrafts ?
This tour is best organized on a Tuesdays when the weekly market of Tire is being held yet other days are also possible.
We depart from your hotel and drive to the village of Tire. En-route, if you wish, a short stop at the Mausoleum of Belevi is an option. In Tire we will visit the market place, the “arasta” (a sort of covered market), a mosque and enjoy a local lunch : the “Tire Kofte” (buttered meat balls on a skewer). We then proceed to the village of Birgi whe-re we will discover a Konak (typical wooden mansion) and a XIVth century mosque.
This tour is also an opportunity to learn more about those crafts which tend to disappear such as ropes, felt carpets...
After some free time to stroll the village, we return to your hotel.
