The trip was amazing. The canyon is beautiful and Selge was very interesting. In addition to the acropolis in Selge , it was great to see how “real” locals lived there . Our guide Youssef was brilliant - he spoke excellent English, really liked after my travel companion who was quite elderly and was informative and entertaining. If you book one trip from Side, make it this one

Die direkt nach drr Buchung avisierte Kontaktaufnahme erfolgte nicht. Ich wurde erst um 19.15 Uhr am Vorabend informirrt, dass die Fahrt jm 9.15 Uhr bei meinem Hotel starten würde. Das Theater von Selge war sehenswert, die veiden Brücken auch. Im Taurusgebirge war eije schöne, grüne Landschaft zu bewundern. Das der englisch sprachige Fahrer und Guide gleichzeitig der Koch war und die Fische in unserer Gegenwart gefangen und zubereitet wurden war nichz Jedermanns Sache. Vor dem Hintergrund des bassen Wetters hätte ich mir eiben geheizten Ort zum Essen gewünscht. Anregung die historische Stadt Lybre/Seleukia in ihr Programm aufzunehmen

Veldig fin rolig reise opp til Selge med kjempe hyggelig tur guide. Selge var en fin by. Fikk kjøpt lokal honing og te. Etter turen hadde vi lunsj med tur guiden. Vi fanget fisk, lagde mat og hentet ingredienser i hagen. Kjempe fin tur hvis man liker å se hvordan man levde før all turisme.
