I have a family experience that can be called local.My grandfathers were living in this region.I had travelled countries such as America, France and Italy during my school years ( I am a graduate of tourism management ) I searched for local experiences during my travels. Therefore, I know well what travel lovers are looking for to experience local experiences. In this village, we have restored the house that my grandparents had lived in and my family live in. I know the local life, local tastes, different places unique to the region and the people of the region.

We had a wonderful experience in the village! A very vibrant place. The road to this place is also an additional adventure with spectacular views! There where 4 of us, including 1 child and 1 infant. The atmosphere was very relaxing with no rush, a good walk around the village. It was very interesting to get introduced to the usual life of the local people in the village, like some neighbors opened the secrets of making the olives. Special thanks to Ilklima for being flexible and ready to adjust the program because of the kids. The best part for children was to see and to feed the sheep:) And the food prepared by Ilklima and her sister was soo delicious, my kids and myself couldn’t stop eating ! We will bring unforgettable memories from this trip

Had a great experience with our exceptional guide Özgür! Got to experience life as it was many years ago in the charming village of Bezirgan. Özgür and his family were were super friendly, very hospitable and made us feel at home. The food was all fresh straight from the garden. This tour is a great way to experience the local culture.

We had a great time! On the way to the village we made a stop by a small goat farm with more than a hundred small goats. It was the cutest thing. Highly recommended to make that stop if the goats are available :) In the village high in the mountains, we had a delicious dinner with the host's parents. We were treated like family. Great time, definitely recommended!

I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about this experience! Super personalized and not like any regular pre-planned “tour” excursion. I’m pretty low key and I love people and culture... and I really wanted a relaxing fun authentic day in a village... This experience really jumped out at me from the start. Ilklima and her family is as fun, real, and authentic as can be! We had a beautiful walk and chat through the village, tasting fruits and things along the way, talking with locals, etc. Ilklima and Özgür were so kind and happy to take photos for me to have priceless memories to take home! The meal, with fruit, nuts, vegetables from their garden and farm area, was delicious beyond belief! Everything tasted EXTRA fresh and amazing! I felt very safe regarding this Covid situation, we wore masks most of the time and kept distanced, and outdoors generally. No risk.... though after the day was done, I really wish i could have hugged them all for their kindness! (next time!) Such a wonderful, kind and hospitable family! Highly recommend if you are near Kaş /Kalkan.

I really enjoyed this experience with İlklima and her family. İlklima’s village of Bezirgan is in the mountains directly above Kalkan, and the drive up there is beautiful. We stopped at a ledge on the outskirts of the village where we got to enjoy one of the best views I saw while I was in Turkey. Once we got to the village, we walked around and enjoyed the weather and peacefulness, before heading back to their house in the village where we enjoyed a home cooked meal, as other family members who lived in the village joined in. Overall, I am very glad I got to experience the village of Bezirgan, as it was a very peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and İlklima and her family made sure that it would be a experience I won’t forget. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is staying in or around the Kas region.

I've been on many Airbnb experiences, and this is far and away my favorite one. İlklima was the warmest, most hospitable guide I've ever had. She took me into her village, introduced me to people, we ate dinner with her family, we walked around their gorgeous backyard, and we had experiences I would've never dreamed of having. This is a truly unique experience, and İlklima is a truly wonderful person. Make sure to also book the fishing experience with her dad! He is the cutest and it's a really wonderful experience.
