Been before so skipped the tours but made it to the Grand Bazaar (again), and then to Hamdi for a fabulous lunch (as always), and then to the spice markets nearby. Wonderful.

Only negative thing is that the taxi drivers really try to rip you off. One driver charged us 25 euros to get from port to Grand Bazaar. Next one tried to charge us 135 euros to get from the Hamdi Restaurant (which is very close to the port) back to the port. We argued and threw 25 euros at him & told him that was all he would get from us, and we exited the taxi and walked about a half mile to the ship (which is where he dropped us off).....nasty guy.
