The excursion was great but a bit short. The Oxanna guide was very helpful and gave us extensive explanations in English and Russian. The visits were very interesting but it would have been necessary to spend a little more time in each place, even if you return to Antalya later.

The drive is a long but scenic one.. The guide can make or break the experience. Nothing like a dip in the Mediterranean to cool you off. The structures at Kekova are well preserved and worth a visit. The lunch was horrendous and the restaurant should be just struck off the itinerary.

An hour late for pick-up at the hotel. Drive from Antalya to Kekova was almost three hours, but told 50 mins at start of trip. Lunch - a simple döner would've been more appetising than the meal we received. Information given by tour guide - very good.
