Antalya is not that far from Side but since it was my first time there I wanted to visit with a guide. It’s a must visit city. Big but not chaotic. It’s busy but still beautiful. Picked up from hotel with a nice car. Likely it had air conditioned coz it was July and really hot. I really enjoyed sightseeing in Antalya. Spent some time in the old town, shop nice things from there. I also did a cable car ride and had some nice views of the city. I recommend this tour to all, Antalya is a nice place to explore.
Liked everything about the city. I’m coming back for sure one day! we had a very cool guide, very helpful and as a local he had some good recommendations for us that was awesome. Few hours of free time in Antalya are enough to see the main attractions. We went to some mosques, and some ancient ruins. Antalya has a long and interesting history. We had some drinks at a local’s place. They are friendly and warm with foreigners. I think I will go back to Antalya one day, the city triggered my interest and I want to explore more.
