A "really great day"! So the conclusion of our sons 10 & 15. We were just amazed! Picking up at the hotel went smoothly. In the afternoon of the day before we received information at what time we would be picked up at the hotel locker and how we would recognize the bus. He was there on time and took us to the ship in 40 minutes (other hotels were also approached). Here we were able to decide whether we wanted chicken or fish for lunch. We made 4 swimming stops. At 3 you could jump off the ship EVERYWHERE. The music was always great and yet a bit "German-heavy". The foam party at the end was awesome! The music, the animation... just great! Raki was €5, beer €3, soft drinks €1.50 and water €1. Gözleme was available for €2 each. Pringles chips cost €3 (the large can). We would book it again next year if we came back! Just great!!!!

As agreed via WhatsApp, we were picked up punctually by jeep to the collection point, where we continued with 7 other cars. Together we drove off-road up to the mountains and there was a real atmosphere! ATTENTION! Clothes get very dirty because they drove through huge puddles. So don't wear white clothes! There was a stopover for a coffee and cake break at the lake. And the lunch was ok too. The boat trip was about 1 hour with a small swimming break. All in one a very successful trip! You could see a lot and the drivers created a lot of atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Everything organized very well. I was picked up from the hotel, then to Side to the ship. Ship was pretty nice too. Due to the low season we weren't that many people, hence a very pleasant vibe. The staff at the dive center and on the boat were super friendly. Everything went off stress-free, we always had time to lie on the deck in the sun in between. Food was simple but really tasty. Thank you, had a great day

We were really excited. Everything was right here, from the pick-up, which took place on time, to the off-road tour, lunch and the boat trip. We've never had so much fun on a tour. Next time I would like to use this seller again. Only to recommend. Thank you for the wonderful day.

Absolutely amazing. The weather, the view, the ship everything was perfect. Food was yummy
