Our 4WD tour guide Daniel was very good. The view points at the canons and high point were beautiful. The tie dye stop was interesting but nothing that would be missed. The snorkelling was amazing. We swam in shallow water where you can stand, with reef sharks and a stingray. Then we moved to the coral gardens and the 40 minutes we spent snorkelling there were amazing. The coral formations were beautiful. The current can be a bit strong so if you’re not a strong swimmer they will give you a life vest to wear which helps. A great combination tour and the lunch they provided at The Lucky House was delicious too. Make sure you try the Poisson Cru.

Very nice activity, the captain and his second listened to their travelers throughout the crossing, however our guide completely ignored us giving us an hour to go around the island during this time she relaxed on the beach and when it was time to take the zodiacs to return to the catamaran she was the first to board without worrying about the customers.

It was a perfect time and a lot of atraction in Kapadocja, but number one during 2 days trip was our Guide - best of the best - Ruslan 🔥🔥🔥🤩🤩🤩 with our Perdect driver Mr Muslim Speedy Gonzales hahaha 🤩😀 Amazing 2 days. Thnx Guys for everything. Would highly recommend this trip with these guys 🔥🔥🔥 All the best for You. Thomas from Poland 🤪

Pauline was very knowledgeable, she show us around downtown, the park, the cathedral, the market, the harbor, the city hall and on every stop she explained the culture and the history of the site. The pace was good, a perfect excursion to see the city when you don’t have much time. We recommend Pauline.
