I received the confirmation immediately after booking. Then an email followed for the pick-up time at the hotel. on the day of the boat cruise we were picked up on time. At about 10:00 we boarded a pirate boat and sailed across the green river. Food and drink is partly free. With music and a foam disco at sea it was a nice display. Then moored at a beach for a dip in the sea, jet ski rental and a little later a tasty lunch on board. then you sail to the starting point where buses are ready. You can go straight to the big bazaar or first buy a ticket in advance or on board for a visit to the waterfall (30min) and then another 1.5 hours to the bazaar. At half past six we were back at the hotel in Side. It was a fun day with variety.

Our family – 2 adults and 2 kids aged 6 and 4 had a wonderful rafting experience with this company. What to be ready and look for: this is a very popular activity with several rafting companies starting from the same point at the same time so be prepared to wait about an hour on the spot under sun + transfer time. Dinner was excellent but drinks and snacks before main lunch are extra – beer 4 EUR, cola 2 EUR, water 1 EUR, don’t remember how much sweet pancakes were. If you want to save – bring your own water and snacks in the drybag that you can attach to your safety vest. I can’t say those extra charges are bad – just be ready for them.

It so nice to visit Pamukkale & Salda lake. Just a long journey from where we stayed on however it is good experience. Our guide from Pacho tours is so helpful, too. Lunch & dinner included & were delightful. Will recommend this activity when you visited Turkey. It is once in a lifetime experience.

The white water rafting was great fun. The instructors speak fluent German, English and Turkish. The food also tasted very good. We were glad that we had booked the kayak, because you are a bit freer and more independent there. Everyone was always waited for and it was a super nice day!

Foarte bine organizat, o experiență frumoasa din care nu a lipsit nimic.
