Not quite as advertised but still great value for money! It took a long time (over an hour) to pick up all the passengers but we then headed to the pirate ship for a cruise down the river. We stopped to spend some time on a deserted beach then back to the moore for lunch (chicken, rice and salad). Next stop was the bazaar for shopping and then short stop at the small waterfall which was nice but unimpressive. Would recommend.

Very nice trip. Only 1 day before booked and accidentally the wrong hotel indicated. Great communication with the tour guide, who changed it immediately. The bus ride was in a very funny bus with funny bus drivers. Had a lot of fun. On the boat it was very nice, everything was explained great. On the first mooring you have the chance to go jetski or eat food / drink from local people. Very cheap prices. The following lunch was very good. Then you can choose bazaar or waterfalls or both. We have reported for both (3 € for the waterfalls) both have a lot of fun. Then relaxed back in the hotel, very nice day.

Nice trip

Picked up too late. But the trip was nice. The most beautiful were the sea, the waterfall in Manavgat and the river trip on the Manavgat itself. But it is mass tourism especially at the waterfall. It definitely pays off. Not a German guide on our bus, but she tried very hard.
