We went to the trip without great expectations and were totally pleasantly surprised. It started with an off-road tour, an absolutely awesome experience, where you might have to put up with a little bit. But it's definitely worth it. We really had fun!!! The visit to the mosque, the boat tour and the waterfall were also very worth seeing... and the dam was beautiful! Great tour guide, great driver - a MUST for us on vacation. The "small" unexpected surprises are also a highlight - stay tuned! THE team knows something about animation and entertainment!

Really recommend this kayaking activity. Perfect for 2 people. The kayaking itself took approx 2 hours, but it was really fun, since you really felt all the waves with the inflatable kayak. Everything was well organized. The pickup was convenient and on time. Hüseyin, our guide and his team were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely do this again!

We had a very nice, relaxing day. Everything worked smoothly. From pickup to delivery. We were with our child and everyone was very child friendly. In Germany, we have never experienced anything like this to this extent. I had wanted the safari for Mother's Day and it was super relaxed. We would do it again. Thank you for the great, eventful day.

Worth every penny, take sunglasses and towels with you :) but it's a great experience

Fantastic from start to finish, the whole party loved it and would definitely book again
