Great experience! I booked rafting with my partner and loved it. Our guide Hasan was just great, the Tarzan of rafting. The other guides also made a professional impression. From the transfer back to the hotel, everything went great, the transfer journey is a bit adventurous, as there are other rules that should be taken into account. On site you will then be divided into different linguistic groups for the briefing. You should also note that there may still be costs on site for water shoes (if no closed shoes are available) or cell phone protection and the like. Drinks are also chargeable. Lunch is included in your booking. You can also book other activities in addition to rafting, but you have to be aware that you have to wait for the others because you are traveling in a group. In our case we were able to return to the starting point and pass the time wonderfully there

Very fun experience. Strongly recommended. Our guide Abdul was very energetic and made the day super fun. We ended up doing the Zipline and Quad bikes for 25 USD extra per person, and these were also great experiences. Be aware if only booking for rafting, then there will be a couples of waits during the day. Also, there's a few extra expenses on the day to be aware of, including water shoes (10 usd), Balaclava and goggles (5 usd) and drinks with your lunch. Despite this, it's a very fun day, however I would recommend doing a 3 in 1 package to make the most out of your day.

A straight 1* for the guide who picked us up from the hotel in the morning and accompanied us to the return trip. Bathing shoes are mandatory! If you don't have one with you, you have to buy some on site at a higher price, as loose open shoes are prohibited. Fitness gloves are recommended, but can be rented on site for $5 or bought for $10. If you have one, you are welcome to take your waterproof smartphone case ($10 there) with you! Very beautiful landscapes. Well suited for beginners. Gladly again.

A very exciting adventurous rafting tour that I can only recommend. You will be picked up from the hotel and it takes about 2 hours by minibus if you are picked up from Antalya. The guides are friendly and very helpful. Lunch is also plentiful, only drinks have to be paid for separately. Overall a great experience!

Tornado's rafting program was excellent. The staff was excellent. Especially Mr. Mahir. I highly recommend participating in this program.
