We had a wonderful day in Alanya. The guide was very nice, funny and knowledgeable. You also learn a lot about local life, which is very interesting. Everything was very well organized, from the pick-up to the individual excursion destinations to the transfer back to the hotel. Highly recommended, thank you very much for this great day!

The boat trip itself was absolutely worth it. Beautiful views, great water, incredibly relaxed ride. The bus ride also worked great. The only drawback was the lunch, unfortunately overcrowded and staff very overwhelmed (dishes and cutlery from the previous group were still on the tables). But all in one an absolutely worth seeing tour!

We had an indescribably beautiful day. It all started when we got on the bus when we were picked up by the best guide ever, Ahmet. Ahmet brought us closer to the culture and history of Turkey in an exciting and funny way that could hardly be better. Thank you very much for this unforgettable day

The organization worked very well. The ship was ok - lunch was very good. Shopping in the bazaar the way it should be, of course. Waterfall - well - worth seeing for the area. Our guide was great - he really looked after us and was always there. A really friendly educated fellow.

Nice guide! Amazing tour, especially loved the boat tour. The lunch we got on the boat was amazing!
