    They have come to look for us at 20:20 when they should pick us up at 19:15, we have arrived, all eating now! We have been seated with more people, romantic dinner!?!? You didn't believe anything that says this tour has, wasted money. I think it wasn't even the one we had hired. Regrettably true, my advice ... get here and know that you hire

    It had nothing to do with romantic dinners!

    Transfer worked great, but it wasn't romantic at all! Long tables where several guests sat together. On the table dirty plastic flowers and the table normally covered with paper napkins. The food was average like from the chip shop! Rustic boat trip with food and Turkish folklore is better!
