Everything was perfect and well prepared, the problem was if u only book rafting you most likely going to wait because it’s one bus, but they kinda fix the waiting problem, you have to bring all your stuff with you if they have a shop for everything you might need, our guide was ABDUL he’s funny and outgoing we had a great time but he keep throwing people in the river lol. The bus we took was with no air conditioning but it good shape we left the hotel 10:00 and came back 17:00 I highly recommend it

Nothing to say, the activity was perfect and the guides were on top. If you want to go buggy or quad in Antalya, don't hesitate for a second to go to them. They even take pictures that you can buy at the end, which are of very good quality. Very good memories, I recommend!

great people, really funny and know what they are doing. Didn't realise we could have booked other activities like safari, quad bike ride and Zip line, which was a shame but still had fun. 100% take a change of clothes as you will get wet!
