What people are saying about Side

My daughter and I had a lot of fun. The confirmation of the pick-up took place after a few minutes via WhatsApp. The pickup was on time and the guide friendly and multilingual. The bus was older, but the access road to the mountains was being upgraded and there weren't too many curves. It had rained the day before, so we drove the buggy through a lot of puddles. The operation with automatic was very easy. Then we went 14km through the canyon in a rubber dinghy. The view was picturesque and especially at the front you got really wet. Luckily we had rented wetsuits. It is best to bring your own bathing shoes. But you can also borrow them. In between there was a break with the possibility of crossing the river by cable car for 8 euros. The final lunch was delicious (grilled chicken, noodles, rice, salad). You can buy a video of the rafting. Great nature and adventure - highly recommended!

I recommend everyone to do this tour! The pure driving time with your own buggy is approx. 1 1/2 h and apart from the 1st break you drive continuously! My advice to everyone is to dress in really old clothes, pack a cloth mask and sunglasses! :) Otherwise you can get the last two things for 4 EUR each on site. At the end you can buy all the pictures for EUR 12 and they will be sent to you immediately by e-mail. Since we know significantly different prices and think this price for about 42 pictures is great! In contrast to others with a total of 4 hours, this tour is also really pleasant, since we are not fans of being on the road with such predetermined groups all day! :) From Side Kumköy you drive about 40 minutes to the starting point! Warm greetings

In itself it was really good, unfortunately too slow for me as an adrenaline junkie, because you were constantly being held up by slower drivers. But that's the problem everywhere. You should really put on bathing shoes, swimming trunks and a bandana with sunglasses, because you get dirty. The break in the cold river was nice. The providers then shot really good photos of you for €12 and shared them via Whatsapp and CD. The transfer was also on time, but I had to call Getyourguide the day before to see if it would take place and was then written to by the provider. But overall I would do it again!

This buggy ride was really great. I have already ridden a quad or buggy at 3 different locations here near Side / Manvgat, but the organization and route is simply the best. It goes on sandy and stony paths along and in the river bed, swimming break and at the end you can buy the photos taken by the organizer for 12 EUR ... so in total I am perfectly satisfied, you can recommend it

Really fun and the tour guides were very informative. Great value for money!
