Full description
Enjoy a full-day tour of the Grand Bazaar in Manavgat and cruise along the Manavgat River. Laze in the sun, enjoy a barbecue lunch aboard a traditional wooden boat, and pick up some souvenirs along the way. Following your pickup from your hotel in Belek, transfer by comfortable, non-smoking minibus to the town of Manavgat. There, you can climb aboard a 45-passenger wooden boat for a cruise along the river. Once on board, simply sit back and enjoy the views of the river banks and mountains, relax in the sun, and soak up the cool breeze. A barbecue lunch of fish, chicken, pasta, and salads will be served on board. You will later stop at the mouth of the river for a refreshing swim at a beach where the river meets the sea. Following your cruise, you will disembark the boat to go to the Grand Bazaar, a waterfall, and the Blue Mosque of Manavgat. You will be welcome to pick up some souvenir bargains from the diverse stalls in the market, and can enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to wander around the bazaar, before your return transfer to your hotel.

The organization worked very well. The ship was ok - lunch was very good. Shopping in the bazaar the way it should be, of course. Waterfall - well - worth seeing for the area. Our guide was great - he really looked after us and was always there. A really friendly educated fellow.
