Very beautiful canyon, water of stunning color. The driver picked us up from the hotel at 7:30 in a comfortable minibus. Then we were taken to the beginning of the route, where we changed clothes and got into jeeps. The jeep safari was short, about 20 minutes. But, perhaps, this is due to the fact that some of the tourists who came with us went not for rafting, but to look at the canyon. We were dropped off the jeeps at the starting point of the rafting. The river is quite calm, so the rafting seemed simple, but at the same time, fun and interesting. A huge plus of the excursion is that there were only 4 people and an instructor in the boat; in other tour companies, 15 people were packed into boats. That greatly spoils the impression of the alloy. For those who are rafting for the first time, this route is just right. In general, we were satisfied with the excursion. And after the rafting, a delicious lunch awaited us. Thanks to the organizers!

MUST HAVE! I recommend it to everyone who is in or around Alanya. A well-coordinated team, great cars, risky driving and a lot of laughter. It's really worth spending a penny to see a bit of the area not entirely from a postcard and spend time in the company of funny guides. I RECOMMEND! ❤️❤️

Amazing experience. Guide was friendly and helpful. Did jeep safari first which was bit scary but we really enjoyed it. Rafting experience was best accompanied by lunch. I feel lunch could be little better but in this price it was not bad at all . Overall it was good value for money.

Great experience, there was waterfight on the road, food was okey, drivers were cool and the views were awesome

It was really great fun! You definitely come back dirty
