Incredibly great experience. Driving through the countryside by jeep alone is worth the price. Great people and great atmosphere among people (even if sometimes you don't speak the same language you can laugh with each other) We would definitely do it again. PS: sunglasses and cloths to protect mouth and eyes are an advantage

We were collected from our hotel by jeep and drove around for a few hours with stop points! Waterfights happened what was fun and refreshing. You have a free lunch what was really nice as well! Followed by a boat trip where you can jump off

Really beautiful scenery. The food is quite average but edible (many different salads), the staff is nice. The lake was also windy from time to time, so the heat didn't bother me. In addition, swimming spots in really good locations.

Fun for everyone involved, beautiful countryside in the hinterland, the lake is great for swimming. A day trip especially for young and young at heart people, driver and guide very friendly and approachable.

The experience was amazing and it’s worth the money. The lunch was super good. The guide Temir was very helpful and his knowledge was excellent. The waterfall is wonderful. I would recommend it a lot.
