It was a very pleasant beautiful tour. The boat trip was nice, and the tour guide Mehmet had told us everything worth knowing about the city and sights. I can only recommend it. Thanks for the information and the pleasant journey.

It was very nice and a very great result. Both the rafting and buggy rides were so much fun and very fun too. The whole thing was well organized and everything went as expected. One can only recommend this trip.

Funny experience Children sitting in the middle of the boat my son was pretty cold because the river was only 16 degrees and we were often splashed wet

Disco on boat. That says it all. Lots of space, great party

It was absolutely great! Would definitely recommend ☺️
