Super friendly tour guide (Chief of Side) guided us very reliably through the day. Only one hour boat ride, which is absolutely sufficient in terms of time. Then 1 hour of free time through Alanya to go shopping and to see the city. Absolutely enough time. The lunch was a bit outside and semi delicious. Well, the ride on the cable car and the stalactite cave was very nice. Great day, thanks!

First of all we want to say thank you for the really good Memet, he guided us really well today, was a lot of fun with him and he was always making sure everyone was doing well. In general, we really enjoyed the trip. Many thanks and greetings to Memet. Best regards, The two from Verbena Hotel.
