This Side Jeep Safari tour enabled us to have a wonderful day with my family. It was really great to feel the adrenaline and see the amazing view of the Taurus Mountains. We were amazed by the beauty of Manavgat Waterfall. The village visit allowed us to experience Turkish hospitality. Returning to our hotel after a day full of all these experiences will remain a wonderful memory. I definitely recommend it!
It was a one of a kind tour! Everything was just perfect, amazing! I did the tour with some friends and we all had so much fun. The jeep picked us up from our hotel in Side and drove us to the countryside. The driver of the jeep was really experienced in off road tracks. Best part was when we rent water guns and started to fight each other. We were like children! I saw some nice villages and the people are very authentic there. Lunch was superb, very tasty. With a fair price we all had a great day.
We stayed 4 days in Side and mostly spent our time at the beach. However, we kept the best for the last day! And yes, the jeep safari was amazing. We took the kids with us –teenage boys- and they were thrilled!!! The jeep took us around the forest. The mountain was wonderful. We saw waterfalls, listened to the sounds of nature, explored picturesque villages. A friendly guide was with us and I was touched by his willingness to assist and make our day absolutely fabulous! He was fluent in English and got friendly with our boys.
