Really fun day out. The views during the rafting are absolutely incredible. Great value for money aswell considering all that is included. We did purchase water shoes whilst we were there but i'd reccomend taking your own if you can as they were really uncomfortable. There was only one thing I wouldve changed about that trip and that was the fact we are english speakers but put with a german speaking group and tour guide, so we couldnt understand alot of what was going on

It was just great! our guide - Captain Jack was the best! He made it such an adventure for all of us! we laughed a lot! the water is a bit cold. wear watershoes. dont take anything with you. the pictures and the video are verry good and funny! its worthy!

Overall just great! Great guides, beautiful surroundings and swimming in the water in between was a great, cooling experience!

There best activity to do in Turkey. Everything was perfect I recommend 1000%

Excellent guide. Good spoken English . Family friendly activity
