  • We were this month for ten days in Kos and made a day trip to Bodrum with the travel company Python tours. The day trip liked us very well, it was very interesting and instructive on this point. We stopped at the gold Centre of Bodrum where we were very warmly received. After a small introduction to led in the business where the seller made great advertising with at least 50% discount, everything is "hand-crafted" with five-year warranty. We looked around a little, after a short time the seller came to us very friendly and showed us several beautiful pieces of jewelry. Then they went with us in an adjoining room where you us to bat directly wine, champagne or water. All well and good! Pretty quickly they started "calculate" and us offers to make to prices. We could still not really decide when you were already with the card reader in front of us and even more pieces to turn us on. My friend has chosen bracelet a beautiful 14 k which is also "hand-made" for €900 (consider the "50%" discount!) I have a 14 k ring selected (also "handmade") for €390 initially we were mega happy with our purchase. As we again had Internet googelten we times the gold Centre and saw many bad reviews. We were no longer sure whether it went to right things. When we were back again in Switzerland we went to a goldsmith. Now the result shortly and flush... 1. NO MANUAL WORK! 2. real 14 k gold "at least some" 3. We pay for both €1290 the price it was estimated about €500 bottom line; DON'T BUY ANYTHING IN THIS GOLD CENTRE.

  • We weren't really interested in going here as we knew that the best shopping was downtown but it was a non-negotiable part of the 'day trip' from Kos in August. The guide talked it up repeatedly but it was obvious to us later that she was getting a kickback. On arrival, we were ushered into a foyer where the manager introduced himself, issued a badge to every adult (with number 75 on it) and offered us a biscuit. What happened next was one of the most thinly disguised sales pitches in the form of a history talk I could ever imagine. We were told that any purchases we wanted to make which required alterations would be carried out during our holiday and delivered to our hotel and that we could rest assured that their jewellery was of the highest quality. After the 5-10 minutes this took, we were shown into a series of rooms full of jewellery and eager sales assistants. My family and I had no interest in buying jewellery and walked straight through to the cafe (which, unlike the sales rooms, was outside and not air conditioned) where we found our guide. We waited around for a full 20 minutes before my sister-in-law asked how much longer we would be there as we really wanted to shop in town. The guide said ten minutes and fifteen minutes later we left. Even the most cursory search online for this place shows it up as a very sketchy place indeed. Unsurprisingly, various online reviews of sub-standard jewellery contradict the sales pitch to which we were subject. It's easy for people saying "watch out for fake jewellery - you work hard for your money" to position themselves as your friend when they are in fact part of the problem. If your tour guide says that this is part of the 'day trip' (which left us with just under 3 hours unchaperoned to shop for ourselves and get lunch out of a 10 hour excursion) either get dropped off early so you don't have to go to this glorified flea market or just use an independent tour company. This was a hard sell experience aided and abetted by the tour company. Prudent potential visitors might also like to read the reviews of this place on Trip Advisor or perhaps draw their own conclusions from the number of glowing five star reviews here from 'local' people who have just one review to their name.
  • Came away with some beautiful gold, Helpful staff, fair prices, hopefully be visiting again soon!
  • An Amazing Jewellery shop , Bodrum Gold centre has the biggest and the most variant collection of jewellery I ever saw. Prices are reasonable and the staff is knowledgeable and always positive. I recommend everyone who is looking for a nice spot in Turkey for jewellery shopping.
  • the biggest jewelery shop that i have ever seen before the staff very friendly and helpful. The prices are quite reasonable. You should check it out if you go to bodrum.
  • They have a 5€ "Bodrum city tour" that is sold at the Kos ferry, basically a trap to take you there in a bus. When they leave you there, they will chase you to try to sell something. Avoid the "tours" sold in the Launzis boats!
