What people are saying about Southeastern Anatolia

We had a great time at the tour! The guide was very fun and hyped our group up before the tour, which helped us to feel more excited. He could also speak 4 different languages, so communication went smoothly. The views at the canyon were breathtaking and we were able to swim in the cold water, which was exciting. We also stopped by an underground cave and banana plantations, which wrre also beautiful. The car trip was fun and at times, quite extreme - I would suggest taking a rain coat/something warm with you to protect your ears and chest as the convertible buses drive quite fast and it gets very windy.

A fun and fast-paced tour. Before the gorge we had made a short break. There you could buy drinks and something to eat. Then it was on to the gorge. Was very stunning. After the gorge there was a break, a small bazaar (in my opinion quite unnecessary). Then it was on to the cave. Entry is €1 and well worth it. Then it was on to dinner. It was delicious. There was rice, pasta, salads and fish/chicken. For the price, the tour is very worth it. Don't forget the hat, though. Full sun and quite a bit of wind.

A very special outdoor tour that you should embark on. You shouldn't think about safety. Wouldn't have been possible in Germany. It was damn fun for that. The scenery in the mountains of Alanya is beautiful. The excursion destinations are OK. The driving is special.

Absolutely amazing. The weather, the view, the ship everything was perfect. Food was yummy

Great trip and nice driver, fantastic weather and good food. 10 stars
