Súper buen recorrido, el guía dio buena información. Para hacer este tour toma en cuenta llevar bloqueador solar y agua para hidratarte. Las vistas son hermosas, muy cómodo el autobús. La comida incluida es muy pobre y el restaurante no se veía muy limpio. Por lo demás es una buena experiencia. ( si puedes llevar tus snacks estría genial )

Very nice experience, a place worth the detour…despite the distance. The journey is long from Antalya but very comfortable vehicle and very careful driver. The guide and the driver were able to bring the most that made this day exceptional. Thanks to barbaros and orhan!!!!!

It was an amazing experience, staff friendly, rafting and all the other activities were very cool, full of adrenaline, espexially for people who never done this. its an amazing landscape with mountains, river, and lots of sunshine.

An early start but well worth it. Guide was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about all locations we visited. Included lunch which was basic but was all that was required!
