Enjoy a full-day combination tour of the Grand Bazaar in Manavgat and an amazing cruise along the Manavgat River. Relax in the sun, and enjoy a barbecue lunch on board a traditional wooden boat. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Alanya, transfer by comfortable, non-smoking minibus to the town of Manavgat. Here, climb aboard a 45-passenger wooden boat for a cruise along the river. Sit back and enjoy the views of the river banks and distant mountains. Bask in the sun and soak up the cool, refreshing breeze. A barbecue lunch will be served on board. Then, stop at the mouth of the river at a sandy beach where you can take a refreshing swim at the spot where the river meets the sea.

5 star service. Very nice bus for pick up and drop off. Nice and cold inside. The tour guide was the best by far very charming and helpful. The food on boat was also very nice. My son said the best foot he had so far, and we are staying in 5star hotel 1,5 for Basar is not enough at all. But you get a possibility to take a taxi back to your hotel if you would like to stay at Basar a bit longer

Not quite as advertised but still great value for money! It took a long time (over an hour) to pick up all the passengers but we then headed to the pirate ship for a cruise down the river. We stopped to spend some time on a deserted beach then back to the moore for lunch (chicken, rice and salad). Next stop was the bazaar for shopping and then short stop at the small waterfall which was nice but unimpressive. Would recommend.

The driver came too early and drove so fast even though I had a 3 year old with me he then tried to tell me to hold my 3 year old for the journey because his ticket is for free and the journey was more than an hour long and when he dropped me off he purposely dropped me on the opposite side of the road and it took me ages to cross over as there was no public crossing. Overall the actual trip was nice and the view was nice
