A nice tour, but dragged a bit towards the end. We were on the road from about 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., first in Side, then to the Aspendos Theater and then to lunch, then to a jewelry manufactory, then to the Duden waterfalls and then to 'the oldest' Turkish delight shop. The two purchase stops should not have been, especially the jeweler. The description didn't say a word about it, so we didn't have a lot of money with us. Our tour guide was very nice, we stopped every now and then and he showed us a flower or cotton from a field. Lunch was more so-so, there were already three tables occupied in the room and it was extremely noisy.

The ride was very pleasant, a new modern vehicle. The guide was very experienced and could tell a lot. Special requests are catered for. Lunch was delicious too and the restaurant was right on a river. If you are looking for an excursion without crowded buses and unpleasant bazaars, this is the right tour for you.

Waterfalls are beautiful but not hysterically spectacular, Side was worth a visit, friendly and cozy beach front restaurants and hotels, but a visit to Jewel shop and Turkish Delight shop was not necessary

fantastic trip, with a fantastic guide who had many surprises in store for us
