Price-performance ratio (18 €) are absolutely OK. However, those who expect power rafting and rapid rapids will be disappointed. This is rather the soft version with little effort and frequent waiting for other boats, the photographer, etc. On the way, further stops for "experience sales" such as zipline or Gözleme food. Sure, they have to get their money in somehow ... Important to know: With hotel transfer from Side, 7am can become 9am, from Alanya 10-11am. Because in the end there is no saving over time, the photographer's video is shown to everyone and should find many buyers. Price for it 20 €. Tip: Take a waterproof cell phone case with a strap with you. There are plenty of opportunities to take photos yourself on the way.

That was the second time we did the rafting tour. The water is pretty cold, but when the sun is shining it doesn't matter. In any case, you should take a change of clothes with you, because you can change after the tour if you don't want to sit in wet clothes. Closed shoes are also a must. This adventure is worth every experience. I also recommend buying a waterproof protective cover for your mobile phone on site - then you can take pictures and videos while driving. :-)

The rafting tour itself was really good and a lot of fun. You are about 3 hours by boat, the rest is picking up security training, etc. Unfortunately, we were among the guests who were picked up first, so the trip there and back was quite long, as many guests were still collected in other hotels. Please have a good breakfast because the food will not be available until after the tour (around 4 p.m.) PS Backpacks and such things can be taken with you but have to be left on the bus later. Most of the others were walking with normal shoes or sandals, but since then you just haven't been insured by the organizer.
