Booked less than 12 hours in advance and had a fantastic trip. Collection perfect, on time. Contact via WhatsApp with notification of pick-up time in English. Very timely despite booking in the evening at 9 p.m. for the following day. We had a great pirate boat. Lots of space, unlike the other crowded boats. We were the last to start from the harbor and overtook all but one boat. Lunch, typical Turkey. Very simple: noodles, salad, pressed beef schnitzel. But for the price you can't expect more. Bring your own drinks! Are expensive on board. And sunscreen. Thank you for this great day with the fantastic impressions of Turkey.

Everything was perfect, however in the description of the tour it was like Turkish and ENGLISH as languages, however the sailor did not know a word of English. We didn't get information from the locations although he tried to explain it to us.

Not even booked a day in advance & everything went smoothly. There was good music on the ship, lots of space and a good view.

Everything was great about the tour. The staff were very friendly and the boat tour was amazing. Highly recommended!

A very pleasant trip, beautiful views and the town. It's worth the trip.
