All in all it was a very nice tour. The description does not say that the first stop is to Alanya. There we had about 90 minutes stay in the port. We continued to the Goblin Cave with a 10-minute stop at a meteorite impact. The cave is a welcome change at 36°C. The spot from lunch was a highlight for us, under kiwi trees and with a swimming opportunity. The food also tasted great and the waiters were very friendly - we would have liked a little more time here. The Sapadere Canyon is absolutely impressive, unfortunately a 40-minute stay here was just not enough to explore everything, swim under the waterfall (8-10°C water temperature) and just take some time to enjoy. Therefore 1 point deduction. We were a small group of 7 people which we really liked.

It was a nice day trip. This started with a ride to Alanya. There we had an hour of free time to do what we wanted. We walked a bit and then drank a large glass of soda, because the jet was so hot. Then a nice drive through the mountains towards the Dwarf Cave. A beautifully lit cave with dripstone. Then on to the well catered lunch at the Sapadere Canyon Park Restaurant. A beautiful, special place on the water under kiwi trees. Then to the Sapadere waterfall. The trail through the canyon was very beautiful. We swam in several places in the very cold water. Cold, but well worth it. Then back on the bus with a lot of beautiful photos and videos. The best outing of the holiday!

We found Sapadere a nice place to visit. And it's a nice bonus that it's a little less warm there than on the beach. The cave is not super big, but certainly worth the euro entrance fee you pay. Along the way we also stopped at a banana plantation and on the way back at the harbor in Alanya. So we got to see all kinds of things in 1 day.
