I asked for the guide in English but I don't know he understood me very well and they were very short explanations unlike the ones in Turkish which were more extensive. First stop in a very picturesque and pretty little town, but very short so we had plenty of time. We made four stops to get into the turquoise water with beautiful scenery. The last stop was in a bay with large turtles. I expected to go to the sunken city to bathe there but it was not the case. Friendly crew and great food. We didn't think they behaved so well. Rice, salad, peas, pasta, beef kebab and bread. What he didn't know was how he would have had access to the fish order like other customers and the table and chairs upstairs. Some guys kicked us out because they had it booked. In addition there are more customers than beds to lie down, so we looked for a little hole where we could on some cushions. I suppose we would pay the same but we do not receive that equality. Recommended tour.

Croisière très agréable, équipe sympathique. Nous étions a priori les seuls touristes sur le bateau le jour de notre passage : les explications sur les lieux visités étaient donc en turc mais un membre de l’équipe est venu nous donner les explications personnellement en anglais, ce qui était très gentil de sa part. Super ambiance sur le bateau avec des gens très gentils ! Les lieux visités sont très bien choisis et le clou du spectacle, le meilleur souvenir de mes vacances : nous avons pu nager avec des tortues de mer, ce qui a rendu l’expérience encore + magique. Je recommande a 100%.

Everything was perfect, however in the description of the tour it was like Turkish and ENGLISH as languages, however the sailor did not know a word of English. We didn't get information from the locations although he tried to explain it to us.
