It was a great tour and the scenery was so beautiful, but we took this tour in february and it was so cold. So if your planning to take this tour in wintertime be sure to have warm clothes with you, but it was so worth it.
Green Canyon is way up in the hills outside of Side, and the cruise through makes for a great relaxing way to explore a bit of the natural beauty of the region.
Nice view ,good service ,tasty food Thank you!!
We booked the tour in March when we were in Germany, and it took place on March 12th. Everything was a mess when we made the booking request via chat, and each person ended up having to pay 15 Euro in additional costs. Vigotour, the provider carried everything on location out in the best way and also had the best pickup service!
We were picked up from our hotel in a bus, the drive there from Alanya took a bit longer, but that was down to the slightly helpless bus driver. On arrival we could take in the beauty of the green canyon and surrounding taurus mountains for 4 hours. - incredible beautiful! One negative thing was the price of drinks on the boat and at lunch. But the included food was more than enough and really tasty. We used up our swimming breaks on deck :)
