Turning to face the city, Alanya's shape, which emerges from the small and charming district, evokes the construction of a big city. Your Alanya cable car tour continues through the roof of the houses around the castle, where small forests around the walls make you feel as if you've traveled back in time a millennia.

Approximately an hour later, your tour continues towards a panoramic terrace, before you return once more by cable car.

Very nice tour. Punctual pick up and drop off. The guide was very nice and friendly. Due to the other reviews, we were prepared in advance for not having a lot of time, but unfortunately that was the case. Would have liked more time at Alanya Castle and Dim Çayı. Highly recommended.

Nice tour guide. It all went a bit too rushed, but that makes sense if you want to see all the highlights in 1 day

It was a wonderful travel experience with qualified and helpful staff. Incomparable quality-price
