Overall rating

4.5
(480 reviews)

Friendly on-board staff and free melon during the trip. The tour is definitely worth the money. We didn't like the aquariums on board so much, we felt particularly sorry for the turtles in the small tanks. The children also banged against the windows undisturbed. It's definitely not nice for the animals. Still, we definitely recommend it.

Excellent excursion: the boat sails to the Turkish border, which is not the case with all boats. There are shades on the upper deck, very comfortable. The team is very nice, good atmosphere, good music, simple but good lunch. I recommend.

Fantastic trip, great food, great fun and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a good time. We got to swim with a turtle which was just magical.

Absolutely amazing and all the staff on board were amazing and so helpful defiantly recommend this trip

Lovely activity great atmosphere, great kind staff! Recommended
