Really fun day out. The views during the rafting are absolutely incredible. Great value for money aswell considering all that is included. We did purchase water shoes whilst we were there but i'd reccomend taking your own if you can as they were really uncomfortable. There was only one thing I wouldve changed about that trip and that was the fact we are english speakers but put with a german speaking group and tour guide, so we couldnt understand alot of what was going on

very good fun experience, driver came to pick us up from and dropped us back to our hotel, great sightseeing would highly recommend. the only problem was we wasn’t contacted about our booking the day before so we became a little worried but everything worked out great in the end

Lovely hiking looking at the river and even went for a swim in it, mountains beautiful view from up there. also drafting was fun and long, zipline was alright short but it was still good experience. For its price 10/10.

The experience was amazing and it’s worth the money. The lunch was super good. The guide Temir was very helpful and his knowledge was excellent. The waterfall is wonderful. I would recommend it a lot.

The excursion was amazing and it’s worth the money and the traveling as it’s 3:30hrs away from Antalya and we had to leave very early. The ruins and the springs are wonderful to see.
