Tour of the castle is conducted on foot, with ramps and stairs within. We recommend wearing
rubber-soled comfortable shoes for walking and getting on and off the gullet (boat). This tour
combines two of Bodrums' highlights; its castle and a cruise in the surrounding bays.
Castle of St. Peter
The striking Crusader’s castle, with its tall, well-preserved towers, was built by the Knights
Hospitallers of St. John between 1402 and 1437. Later, other buildings were erected within
the precincts of the castle. During the Ottoman period, it was used as a place of exile. Today
some of the buildings have been turned into a prominent museum. As you tour the castle
complex, there are spectacular views of Bodrum and the surrounding area.
Returning to the pier you board one of the local gullets or boats for a leisurely cruise in the bays surrounding Bodrum. During your relaxing cruise enjoy a buffet style lunch of local specialties.
As you cruise through the idyllic waters you will view the many beaches and marinas that have
made the area famous. Sip unlimited cool local beverages while plying these tranquil and
ancient waters. The tour concludes back at the pier.
