It was our prelist day in Side and we wanted something nice but not too much. This boat trip was just what we wanted. Comfortable transfer during the morning. The boat was nice, big and had all the necessary things for the trip. We did swim at some nice spots. Saw the temple, took many pictures. We also went to manavgat river which is adorable. It was nice to catch up some sun for few hours. Maybe it was our last chance to work on that tan lines 😉 we went back during midday so we had time to get some rest. everything was great.
Very convenient if you wanna go around with a boat but just for some hours. Easy booking, everything arranged via whatsapp. The staff is very friendly I have to admit. It was a pleasure to join. We anchored at the old town and had some time to explore the area. Swimming stop close to the temple of Apollo was nice. waters were great and we had so much fun there. I strongly recommend this as a short escape. The service was good, the boat was big enough. Just loved it.
