My wife and my two 16-year-old teens accompanied me and all 4 of us were thrilled. Everything was super organized. The Nova Rafting team was great. First the jeep ride with water fights in between and great photo stops and then the highlight with the rafting tour. Our guide was just great and we all had a lot of laughs and fun on the ride. Short swim stops in the cool river and lots of water fights with other boats made the trip perfect. We can only recommend the NovaRafting team. There were also clean toilets and good food in the form of a buffet.

i would surely recommend it, a nice team of people. Jeep safari was very nice, also was the boat trip, food tasted great but it was nothing special. we could swim at 4 different places. I would also recommend you to take a waterproof bag because everything will get wet and by that i mean everything!

A really great experience, everything was super well organized, the tour guide spoke German, English, Turkish and even Russian. Those who do not book a boat trip have a 2-hour stay at the Green Lake and can swim comfortably in the lake.

The experience was amazing, everything ran according to plan. The jeep safari was the best part of the day. Be prepared for unexpected costs for various things not mentioned in the package but overall worth it.

This tour was a lot of fun from start to finish! In between there were little surprises. The drivers made a good mood. It didn't even get boring. Really highly recommended.
