We went on the 12 islands tour from Sarigerme with Excursion Mania and had a brilliant day. There were only few other people on our big boat, so it was just like a tour for us. We also had a lovely lunch (Chicken, Meatballs, Pasta, Green Salad, Potato Salad, Bread, Fruit, Yoghurt) and well stocked bar on the boat, although drinks were extra.
Best boat trip ever. That was the cleanest sea water that I ever saw in my life. The boat was very big and the captain took good care of us. Thank you Excursion Mania!
Thank you Excursion Mania for a timely transfer. The boat trip to ’12 islands’, was excellent. We will be definitely back.
