    Eine eher langweilige Fahrt. Der Fluss ist ziemlich schmutzig und der Badestrand auch nicht so toll. Der Basar war schön, aber zu wenig Zeit. Busreise war anstrengend und hatte viel Verspätung. Das Essen war okay!

    The dam and river was very pretty however we were told we would see a waterfall and swim from a beach, the waterfall was a trickle at the base of the rocks and we swam from a hand made pier not a beach. The grand bazaar was a cheap TK Max, we were hoping for something a bit more authentic. Maybe the description of the trip was slightly mis-sold.

    Entlangdümpeln auf einem Fluss mit müllverseuchten Ufern, 1 Stunde Zwischenstopp auf einer aufgeschütteten Insel. Äußerst langweilig. Der Bazar ist halt ein Bazar. Nix Besonderes, nur meilenweit Fake-Klamotten. Wasserfall ist winzig, länger als 10 Minuten braucht man dafür nicht.

    Pickup & drop off from hotel was pretty good, but the boat trip overall left a lot to be desired. Too much wasted time going out to sea & dropping anchor to allow a few people to swim in the sea & then have a quick foam party on board for a few people. After that we were dropped off near the beach for an hour so some local merchants could try to get more money out of us. We only actually travelled a very short distance up the river so can't really be called a river cruise because a low road bridge does not allow the boat to go any further, so everyone off the boat to be shipped off to the bazaar by minibus, this only allowed just over an hour to go round the bazaar which was nowhere near enough time to shop. Someone needs to get this more organised.

    This was very good although it said drinks were included they wasn't and best to pay in Turkish lira the meal was OK and the bazaar was fantastic experience we had 3 hours there and only just scratched the surface overall excellent boat trip

    I went on this boat trip with my husband and 2 daughters aged 16 & 13. we all thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend for people to do this. we payed 20 euros each and this included a meal on the boat. we did several stops during the journey, where if you wanted to you could jump off the boat and swim in the sea. Also we saw some dolphins(amazing). we spent 1/2 hour at a small stoney beach. there was a foam party on the boat, which was great fun for my 2 girls. we had professional photos taken and purchased these at a small cost as a souvineer of our trip. i would not hessitate in recomending this trip.

    This was one of 3 boat trips we booked via Viator during our 10 day holiday in Turkey, we are glad we booked it, the staff on board are really lovely, efficient, helpful and friendly, we took advantage of purchasing some of the pictures taken on board by a professional photographer because they were excellent quality not just snaps and though we rarely buy the pictures offered at various attractions we visit these were worth buying, the trip itself started with a punctual collection from our hotel in an extremely smart, clean and comfortable minibus, we had contacted the tour operator the day before as requested to confirm our collection time which was 45 minutes before the advertised time so important you do check this, unfortunately we then spend an hour and a half touring other hotels to collect other guests, the first two hotels we visited had nobody there so we ended up having to make another stop at the tour operators local office where a hotel had bussed guests to meet the mini bus after they had failed to check their collection times adding to the time it took to get to the Cruise, we also had to meet up with the Landrover Safari to drop off people who had booked that tour, still as the mini bus was so good it wasn't a terrible experience, arriving at the river we were welcomed on to the ship and it was explained to us that we could pay 10 euro each to visit the Manavgat Waterfall, an option we chose to add to our trip, we then set off down the scenic river towards the ocean, there are some interesting views on the way down the river including many other tour boats all made in a pirate ship style, then passing the boatyard where they are carrying out maintenance on some of the tour boats and you can clearly see a brand new tour boat under construction. from the river you move into the sea and follow the coast a short distance where they anchor up to allow some time for swimming, then more shoreline cruising and into a small inlet where the boat docks and you can have some beach time, at the beach you can at an extra cost parasail or hire a jet ski but we had already done that at the hotel so we just basked in the hot sun, shortly before departure the meal is served, a simple butterfly chicken steak with rice and salad in keeping with all the other tours we have done and we enjoyed the meal as we headed off back up the river where two coaches were waiting to take those going to the waterfall and those going straight to the Grand Bazaar. The Manavgat waterfall is not impressive by any stretch of the imagination and our half hour there was ample time for some photos and a cup of coffee, the attraction itself though is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and from the pictures of what the finished product will be like it is going to be a lot better soon. Then the coach took us down to the Grand Bazaar, a huge market in downtown Manavgat, I didn't expect much because my research had shown our tour date to be on one of the normal days and not a specific scheduled market days but the market is huge, your taken to a café, given a map and told what time to return to the café to meet the bus, this is essential because you will get lost in the market, if your looking for knock off designer brands of sunglasses, bags, purses, clothing etc this is the place to be, some stalls have the prices marked up but some require negotiation, for example we bought a phone protection sleeve for 15 lira rather than the first asking price of 45 lira. Buying or browsing the market is interesting and bigger than anything we saw on our many excursions around the Turkish villages and towns including Antalya itself. Based on value for money and what you get to see and do we would highly recommend this tour and the operators that run it and pre-booking through Viator especially in peak seasons.
