The drive is a long but scenic one.. The guide can make or break the experience. Nothing like a dip in the Mediterranean to cool you off. The structures at Kekova are well preserved and worth a visit. The lunch was horrendous and the restaurant should be just struck off the itinerary.

When booking, only a German live guide was chosen. We had a Turkish interpreter who spoke English and nobody understood. The pick-up time was arranged at 05:30, we were picked up at 05:56, then we went to a parking lot where we waited for the tour guide for about 1 hour. An hour later break for breakfast then finally around 12: 00h to the destination. Boat trip okay unfortunately too short, after 45 minutes it was lunch. To eat there was rice, spaghetti and potatoes with 3 pieces of chicken ... inedible .... then we went to a forced break to buy gemstones. Then quickly visit 2 places and at about 20h we were brought to an immediate street in front of the hotel !!!!! And then watch that other Turkish guests paid 290 Liras, a total of 36 euros for where we paid 55 euros per person for this horror.
