Our family – 2 adults and 2 kids aged 6 and 4 had a wonderful rafting experience with this company. What to be ready and look for: this is a very popular activity with several rafting companies starting from the same point at the same time so be prepared to wait about an hour on the spot under sun + transfer time. Dinner was excellent but drinks and snacks before main lunch are extra – beer 4 EUR, cola 2 EUR, water 1 EUR, don’t remember how much sweet pancakes were. If you want to save – bring your own water and snacks in the drybag that you can attach to your safety vest. I can’t say those extra charges are bad – just be ready for them.

The white water rafting was great fun. The instructors speak fluent German, English and Turkish. The food also tasted very good. We were glad that we had booked the kayak, because you are a bit freer and more independent there. Everyone was always waited for and it was a super nice day!

We really enjoyed this very well organized outing. the guide Mehmet was on top and knew how to bring the historical and cultural side. Superb places, a modern restaurant for a traditional and delicious lunch We highly recommend !!!

The trip is excellent, the view from the top is great.

We had nice time. The guide was very kind and funny.
