What people are saying about Köprülü Canyon

We have booked again for next week! I think that says it all. It was an all-round successful day. A bit of a wait but the rafting makes up for it. Even small children can really come along, because that's totally harmless. Just don't be afraid of cold water, very cold water! Our guide was the best and we had tons of fun! Thanks for the great day! Oh yes, the food was delicious too, which is rare on tours like this.

We ride with our two kinds 7 and 8 years old and we really liked it. The water of the river was very cold but it fits to the weather and the nature was so beautiful, also the staff were so kind. Perhaps good to note that the traveling time from Side to Kuprulu Canyon took about one hour.

So much fun! We had the best guide = Hassan Ali from Mega rafting !! He joked and fooled around with us during the trip! Fun with water wars with the other rafts! We had very good food afterwards! The family had a wonderful day!

A fun trip, full of attractions and emotions. the guide tries very hard, the water is cold, but everyone is satisfied. a bit too long stop on the route.

A great rafting trip with the Mega Rafting team. Just been very satisfied from start to finish.
