What people are saying about Antalya

Great tour! They picked us up at our hotel in Kas around 9:45 (Kalkan is earlier). Lots of swimming stops in beautiful coves- so make sure to bring your towel. Lunch was excellent and cooked on the grill at the back of the boat. I do wish there was a little more time in Simena as it was only enough time to hike to the top of the castle and get an ice cream. The guides English was good and even came around and asked if we had any questions. Keep in mind this is more of a swimming tour than a historic site seeing tour. Would recommend!

One of the best experiences ever. Such good value for money. The food is absolutely amazing and there is such a good atmosphere on the boat as it is family run and they are all so friendly. Swim stops and scenery are incredible. Can’t believe I had one of the best days of my life for only £34 !!

very good fun experience, driver came to pick us up from and dropped us back to our hotel, great sightseeing would highly recommend. the only problem was we wasn’t contacted about our booking the day before so we became a little worried but everything worked out great in the end

I highly recommend it, great trip and beautiful views. lunch was ok, boat trip extra € 9 per person but worth it. you can also stay in port. In my opinion, a very good price for so many attractions

Great spots, beautiful scenery, yummy food. Would definitely recommend.
