The tour was great. We were picked up from the hotel and driven to the river where the boat was waiting for us. After dropping, photos were taken with a parrot. The photographers accepted without much discussion if you didn't want to take photos. Bathing in the sea and in the river was a great experience. The temperature differences, the madness. Lunch on board was good. You could buy drinks for a fair price. Admission to the waterfall also cost €3 for an adult and €2 for children. We ended up being taken to the waterfall on separate buses. The drive there was very wet and fun. The bus driver gave everything to give us an experience report ride. After the waterfall we were brought to the bazaar in Manavgat for shopping. For the first impression it was great, just way too hot. Shopping is currently only bearable in the evening hours.

The trip was good. Pick-up and transport in between worked well, even information about the exact pick-up time via WhatsApp. The river trip is nothing special, but it was a nice chilled out excursion. The food on the boat was good too ... for the Oreis you can enjoy a nice day ... but you shouldn't expect anything special from the river trip ...

The ride was great. The organizers went to great lengths to give the children a great experience. At the bathing place you can go super cheap jet skiing. The fact that lunch is included for this price is really great. I was impressed by the photographer on board. Within a few seconds he took such amazingly beautiful pictures.. easy to recommend.
