What people are saying about Muğla Province

The boat tour was a great change from everyday vacation life. The boat was great with little loud music. On the other ships, loud music sometimes plays continuously. The crew tried very hard to accommodate us, the food on board was okay. Drinks prices were totally okay. We really enjoyed the trip.

Actual excursion amazing but no pick up or drop off which was included in price and arriving where boats were a bit of confusion with the ticket, but we were sorted. Actually would advise to book it direct there, a lot cheaper.

They decided for a long time, but still decided to try. Very good instructors, they all clearly explain. Even the child understood everything. And it was not at all scary. Unrealistic sensations of flying. Thanks!!!

Really great day out. Food was good. And the staff super friendly. Lots of swimming opportunities.

It was really good and worth the money. You can get it cheaper if you book it there do .
