About
Our story started years ago by hosting our friends who came to Bodrum from abroad. Each time, they expressed their satisfaction for having local and different experiences and we were very happy to see the happiness on their faces. When we decided to do this professionally, we had only one source of motivation in mind: to convey Bodrum’s intellectual values to its visitors and to enable our guests to enjoy our deep and colorful culture by providing local experiences with the warm Aegean people.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Melis and Local Story Bodrun was simply an amazing experience! Melis catered to or family to every detail, even accommodating my vegan dietary choices. We got to know Bodrum and it's rich history as well as that of Turkiye through eyes of a true local which provided us the most unique perspective of such a beautiful destination. From the food, to the arts & crafts, to the history & culture, we were able to indulge and truly immerse ourselves in learning about the people and getting to meet, speak, and learn from everyone we met.

Melis, thank you so much for providing such an epic tour and for taking all of our needs in mind. Simply the best.

Melis was an amazing tour guide! We had a great time on Melos’s tour. We had both a big group and needed to go at a different time than advertised and she was extremely accommodating to our needs. Although the actual market tour was initially somewhat fast paced, we later realized it’s because she was just making sure we had time to both shop in the market, as well as most importantly, had time to eat! Every food we tried was absolutely delicious. We really appreciated Amelia’s personal touch on the tour as well providing the personal stories to the foods and vendors we interacted with. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bodrum looking for a unique and fun experience.

An amazing experience visiting Bodrum with Melis. We both were vegetarian but Melis i”planned great Turkish food from starters to dessert ! On time pickup, clear communication and directions. She knows the area very well and gave multiple tips that helped to enjoy our trip even more. She is very friendly, knowledgeable and customizes tour to your likings. We also visited Bodrum Bazar and she took us to unique places. Must do trip when in Bodrum and around !!

I love history, food, fashion, shiny things, and Turkish Tea. Melis knows where to find the best of everything! She has a wealth of knowledge about Bodrum City Center. Book a tour with Melis to happen as soon as you arrive in Bodrum. She'll set you up for success with knowledge you can use your entire stay!

Excellent tour given by Melis!! We loved her and she was so professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We feel like we made a wonderful friend. It was very nice to be shown around by a true Bodrum local. She took us to hidden places we would have never found and we got to eat delicious food. We highly recommend a tour with Melis.. you will not be disappointed and you will walk away with wonderful memories.

Love eating and enjoying the local foods. We met up at a restaurant to start out with some local favorites that included food and drinks, and then ventured on to try more local delicacies. We toured the local shops and we're introduced to merchants with real Turkish made goods at great prices. No worries of returning home with products made in China. We were also shown all the local pubs / restaurants to return to on our own time.
