Despite the bad weather, the tour took place. It was driven with a normal bus instead of a convertible bus. The catamaran trip was replaced by a boat tour. It was a consistently successful tour with delicious lunch. The tour guide spoke perfect German with a Bavarian accent. He says that he lived in Germany for 24 years. I would do this tour again at any time.

Super nice trip in a nice area and with nice staff. Complete with water battles between the open cars. In the beginning it seemed a bit messy, but that worked out well. Charlie (our guide) is a variety entertainer and makes everyone happy. But the photographer and driver also took part. In short, a must!

100% recommendable! Price performance more than adequate. Top!

I can warmly recommend this tour to everyone who is on vacation in Side and the surrounding area. It was a lot nicer than expected. The guides are super nice, the locations are a dream and the food is deliciously traditional. All in all, an exciting day that we will not forget anytime soon.
