What people are saying about Southeastern Anatolia

Great tour! They picked us up at our hotel in Kas around 9:45 (Kalkan is earlier). Lots of swimming stops in beautiful coves- so make sure to bring your towel. Lunch was excellent and cooked on the grill at the back of the boat. I do wish there was a little more time in Simena as it was only enough time to hike to the top of the castle and get an ice cream. The guides English was good and even came around and asked if we had any questions. Keep in mind this is more of a swimming tour than a historic site seeing tour. Would recommend!

Definitely a thing to do!!! It was great from begging to the end. We had transfer from our hotel to the boat and back. On the boat the staff were very friendly and nice. The lunch was also great. For the beaches I dont even have words.. Crystal clear water good beaches and you have 45-60 minutes for every beach. Only thing that I don’t recommend is taking photos on the boat with the photographer, it is too expensive, he asked for 70euros for 5 photos.

We got picked up on time from our hotel and were taken to the boats on a lovely beach. We were then met by the hosts of the boat and the captain. Had a lovely time going to the various stops and had a great lunch. Really nice day. Just wish we could have spent the whole day on the island.

It was overall an amazing experience, would definitely do this agin. I do recommend bringing your own snacks and drinks as the food they serve isn’t the best!

Pur expérience with this trip was awesome. We definitely will do it again.
