Drink Like Local, Story & Ceremony of Rakı with Castle View

Experience hosted by Melis

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Rakı is our national drink and we have a wide culture behind.

We are going to an old and high culture Meyhane (Rakı House) which reflects the local culture in the best way.

This Meyhane was the house of the first Turkish sailor who navigates all around the world with his boat. The venue has a wonderful sea and castle view. We are next to the sea so we hear the waves and smell the salt. You will see sailor's and his family pictures on the walls and feel the Aegean culture.

In our culture actually there is a certain way to drink Rakı and we can just enjoy the drink in this particular way. I will explain you the special ceremony and we drink together. We listen traditional Turkish music which is a must at a real Rakı table.

We select our mezes (the food we eat with Rakı like a starter) together and I will tell the culture and stories behind them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please write me first, before booking or paying for your experience.

‘Merhaba!’

The word welcomes you when you arrive to Bodrum and it means ‘Hello’ in Turkish.

I am Melis. I am Turkish. Arts and the sea are my passions. I love all details in my blue town.

I have lived in Milano, spent long time in Canada and Malta and travelled to countries. In my experiences I always tried to understand the real life of the locals and find the hidden places.

I have always enjoyed to host my friends from abroad. Every time they told me that they have never seen those places in their previous trips.

Now I want to reach people to show them the most beautiful details and local culture here.

You can choose your personal experience packages which includes arts, design, local drinks, slow food, artisanship and antiques.

I try to move your 5 senses and tell the stories behind experiences.
I hope you enjoy our journey!
