Very nice trip. Only 1 day before booked and accidentally the wrong hotel indicated. Great communication with the tour guide, who changed it immediately. The bus ride was in a very funny bus with funny bus drivers. Had a lot of fun. On the boat it was very nice, everything was explained great. On the first mooring you have the chance to go jetski or eat food / drink from local people. Very cheap prices. The following lunch was very good. Then you can choose bazaar or waterfalls or both. We have reported for both (3 € for the waterfalls) both have a lot of fun. Then relaxed back in the hotel, very nice day.

Nice trip

Picked up too late. But the trip was nice. The most beautiful were the sea, the waterfall in Manavgat and the river trip on the Manavgat itself. But it is mass tourism especially at the waterfall. It definitely pays off. Not a German guide on our bus, but she tried very hard.

Rubbish transport

The driver came too early and drove so fast even though I had a 3 year old with me he then tried to tell me to hold my 3 year old for the journey because his ticket is for free and the journey was more than an hour long and when he dropped me off he purposely dropped me on the opposite side of the road and it took me ages to cross over as there was no public crossing. Overall the actual trip was nice and the view was nice
