A superb excursion for us, thanks in particular to the two animators "Oppo" and "Apasse" (who speaks very good English) The bus picked us up on time at our hotel in Kemer and dropped us off at the end of the day. The Canyoning was really nice. On the program walking in the mountains through the rocks, swimming in the river, small climbing and descent. You will be able to take beautiful photos thanks to the superb landscape. The rafting descent was fun and the zip line rather anecdotal. In the end, it is an outing that I recommend. Namely that the meal is taken into account but not the drinks (even the bottles of water). You will also need water shoes that you can buy at Decathlon for example or sold on site for 10 euros.

An unforgettable experience! This tour should be a must for any adrenaline junky. Breathtaking nature that you don't see everywhere. It's worth it and definitely worth a visit!!! If there were more stars to rate, I would add those as well.

It was great fun, but the transfer took FOREVER because we were almost the first to be picked up in the group transfer. We drove there for 1.5 hours and then back again.

It was great day long enough to explore Antalya, guidance with excellent in info he present

Highly recommended if you enjoy driving fast and don't mind getting dirty!
