The trip was amazing. The canyon is beautiful and Selge was very interesting. In addition to the acropolis in Selge , it was great to see how “real” locals lived there . Our guide Youssef was brilliant - he spoke excellent English, really liked after my travel companion who was quite elderly and was informative and entertaining. If you book one trip from Side, make it this one

Contact was not made immediately after the booking was made. I was only informed at 7.15 p.m. the evening before that the trip would start at my hotel at 9.15 a.m. The theater of Selge was worth seeing, as were the veiden bridges. In the Taurus Mountains a beautiful, green landscape was to be admired. That the English-speaking driver and guide was the cook at the same time and that the fish were caught and prepared in our presence was not everyone's business. Against the background of the bad weather, I would have wished for a heated place to eat. Suggestion to include the historical city of Lybre / Seleukia in your program

Very nice quiet journey up to Selge with a really nice tour guide. Selge was a nice town. Bought local honey and tea. After the tour we had lunch with the tour guide. We caught fish, cooked and picked ingredients from the garden. A great trip if you like to see how people lived before all the tourism.
