The boat wasn't a catamaran, but it was nice nonetheless. It's a shame that it wasn't made clear that you could swim during the boat trip. Bring swimwear. Good excursion that contained a lot. It took an hour longer than scheduled, so everyone was tired at the end of the day. Can be recommended.

I can definitely recommend the day trip. The ride in the CabrioBus is a lot of fun and you get a lot of wind blowing in your face. Splendid! The individual stations of the tour are varied and interesting. The boat tour is absolutely relaxing and swimming in the cool lake is refreshing. At lunch I opted for the chicken skewer...very tasty! I can only recommend this tour to everyone. The wonderful German-speaking tour guide Ahmed makes a decisive contribution to ensuring that this tour will always be fondly remembered. Such a great person, paired with a lot of knowledge and humor, is something you will not find again so quickly. All in all absolutely great.

We got more than expected, for example we visited an old excavation (Lyrbe), visited an orchard and got a mosque explained from the inside. You should be careful when ordering drinks for lunch at Green Lake, in our opinion the prices are disproportionate. All in all very worth seeing and informative with OrangeTour. Everything was explained very well by the tour guide Ali. With local providers, the same tour is currently not offered for less than €35 pp. As I said, it was a very extensive tour for us, but I can't say whether it's always like that for this price. From the meeting point at a gas station, we drove in 3 buses towards the mountains, whereby the division was made according to language and therefore only German-speaking participants were in our airy bus. Have fun with the recommended tour, even if it means sacrificing an entire day's vacation.
