We - a family of 4 with another family of 4, went rafting with Seven Tours in Köprülü Kanyon in Turkey. Our host was simply great - very responsive and very helpful. Everything was organized very well, too - pick-up from and return to our hotel, onsite arrangements - equipment handover, transport to the starting point, lunch and the rafting itself, of course. Initially, I thought that the river is quite still but the entire experience turned out extremely funny and with sufficient white-water spots to pump our adrenaline.

Experienced a great all-day tour with my son (9 years old)! Funny guide who kept the group entertained. Took plenty of time towards the end of the season (early November). I can only recommend. Pick up at the hotel and return worked perfectly. ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

Very pleasant experience with a nice guide Omar. The first part with canyoning took us to beautiful places! The water was a bit cold but the wetsuit brought relief.

Amazing day out! The Jeep Safari to the canyon is a lot of fun. You can get some amazing pictures there. The rafting is really good fun and the staff were amazing.

Fantastic event. Great team, which made this trip really good fun! We loved it.
