On the way, stop for 15-20 minutes in a nomad tent where you can taste gözleme (Turkish pancake) as a light snack. Then, head over to the Cüceler Cave (the dwarf cave) for the chance to get out and explore. After this, continue on to the village of Sapadere Village for a 45-minute stroll to visit some interesting places. Discover the small village mosque, an old watermill, and a silk weaving workshop. Have the chance to visit a fruit garden where you can pick fresh oranges and taste local exotic fruits.

It was a nice day trip. This started with a ride to Alanya. There we had an hour of free time to do what we wanted. We walked a bit and then drank a large glass of soda, because the jet was so hot. Then a nice drive through the mountains towards the Dwarf Cave. A beautifully lit cave with dripstone. Then on to the well catered lunch at the Sapadere Canyon Park Restaurant. A beautiful, special place on the water under kiwi trees. Then to the Sapadere waterfall. The trail through the canyon was very beautiful. We swam in several places in the very cold water. Cold, but well worth it. Then back on the bus with a lot of beautiful photos and videos. The best outing of the holiday!

We found Sapadere a nice place to visit. And it's a nice bonus that it's a little less warm there than on the beach. The cave is not super big, but certainly worth the euro entrance fee you pay. Along the way we also stopped at a banana plantation and on the way back at the harbor in Alanya. So we got to see all kinds of things in 1 day.

Really cool trip we drove with Rambo an older gentleman who drove fast on the small roads, don't be nervous he has total control of it. very hospitable gentleman who made you feel welcome. nice boat trips in the gorge and cool hiking in the cave, expect to get wet as water is sprayed, I think it's welcome in the heat and you dry quickly

A wonderful experience, we were 3 boys aged 27, 28, 29, years away, there is a water fight between the different cars that are there, you also just get an experience of a lifetime. With a good view.

Fantastic trip, especially the water fights between the different buses/jeep Rambo is a great tour guide. Great experience and great lunch
