Really recommend this kayaking activity. Perfect for 2 people. The kayaking itself took approx 2 hours, but it was really fun, since you really felt all the waves with the inflatable kayak. Everything was well organized. The pickup was convenient and on time. Hüseyin, our guide and his team were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely do this again!

A great day out from start to finish. Pick up on time in a comfortable coach. Apart from the Banana plantation, which was little more than a field and had only one plant with baby bananas on it...the rest of the tour did not disappoint. Cruise, lunch and panorama photo opportunity was fantastic.

Rafting tour was amazing, the lunch was ok but made my boyfriend and I feel sick

Really fun and the tour guides were very informative. Great value for money!

Friendly guide and delicious food by the river. Recommended!
