Was very interesting. Unfortunately only in English, although booked in German. But you were informed beforehand via WhatsApp. (Had booked 3 more tours, it was the same, but you didn't get any information beforehand.) The lunch was simple but delicious. The cats and other front door (ducks, chickens etc.) were quite annoying when eating. The walk to the waterfall was a bit difficult. (not a good hiking trail) We weren't at the beekeepers. The carpet sales show was very well done. There was also a return transfer to the hotel, although it was not specified when booking.

This is by far the best horse tour you can do , done this twice now and enjoyed both times , the people here actually love and care for the horses and they are not just a workhorse so to speak , they are loved by all from the tour guides to the shop staff , after our safari we went and fed them in there stable we gave them apples and my horse effe was so attentive to me and made my ride easy , trekking down the stream was amazing and you have turtles swimming next to you too , love this place

Really nice people and you can see the horses are loved and well looked after by all the staff there , the best part was riding down the river what a sight to see swimming turtles as you plod along , perfect day recommended to all even kids and they have small ponies too

Nice introduction to rural life in Turkey.

It was very cool. Good food. Away from busy and super-warm Bodrum. Good guidance from a young student. Only downside: we had booked for another day, because we were the only bookers at the time, the trip was canceled. Outing shifted by 2 days.

Great experience and fantastic price

Really nice experience. The staff were really good. The horses were lovely and really well taken care of. The scenery was amazing. Riding a horse through the river was great fun. Would highly recommend.
