A great day out from start to finish. Pick up on time in a comfortable coach. Apart from the Banana plantation, which was little more than a field and had only one plant with baby bananas on it...the rest of the tour did not disappoint. Cruise, lunch and panorama photo opportunity was fantastic.

It's fun, but a lot of dust gets in your eyes in dry weather - even with safety goggles. All clothing must then go into the washing machine - including the shoes. In hot weather, it is best to only ride in swimwear and a hat / sunglasses and then take a shower on site.

A very interesting and recommendable tour. You get to know Turkey from its natural side and get an impressive insight into life in the country. The food was more than enough and very tasty. Overall the best excursion of our stay.

That was a really great trip! Many thanks to the dear tour guide Ahmet, we had a lot of fun. Lots of interesting impressions, lots of information and the food was great too!

Really fun and the tour guides were very informative. Great value for money!
