There’s a lot to be said for walking in a group.Wherever you find walking groups you will probably find a good bit of banter going on and a deal of cameraderie. There will be group members who know the routes well and good organisers. Very often some group members will have specific local knowledge about history and or local flora and fauna or the local geology. All these abilities, skills and knowledge add to your enjoyment of your walks.What happens when you go away? Much of the benefit of club leaders or organisers is diminished and maybe if it’s a walking holiday, those leaders, organisers and local experts would like a break from these responsibilities.Guided Group Walking Tours are a great way to keep the banter and cameraderie but leaving the logistics and local knowledge to someone else.At the Ottoman Palace we have some truly remarkable walks on and around the Lycian Way. Added to these wonderful walks are some fascinating historical sites. The region is home to a plethera of wild flowers (Turkey has over 9,000 species, many of which are unique to Turkey). Our guides have the knowledge and experience to organise you walks and add value to them by sharing their local knowledge, of history, culture, food & drink, flora, fauna and the delightful hospitality of local people. Don’t just meet a shepherd on route! Wth a guide you can organise a conversation, sit with him and drink tea and learn about his life, his livestock and his family!
