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.

We - a family of 4 with another family of 4, went rafting with Seven Tours in Köprülü Kanyon in Turkey. Our host was simply great - very responsive and very helpful. Everything was organized very well, too - pick-up from and return to our hotel, onsite arrangements - equipment handover, transport to the starting point, lunch and the rafting itself, of course. Initially, I thought that the river is quite still but the entire experience turned out extremely funny and with sufficient white-water spots to pump our adrenaline.

A great fast tour. I wouldn't say it's for children under the age of 5. It's very quick over hill and dale with the jeep. Great landscape just worth seeing.

Amazing day out! The Jeep Safari to the canyon is a lot of fun. You can get some amazing pictures there. The rafting is really good fun and the staff were amazing.

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