My husband and I really loved everything about this excursion. At first we got a nice road trip through the mountains. It’s was very quiet there and spotted some interesting places, maybe for a future tour 😉 then we enter in a nice glass-bottom boat, really spacious. We had many stops during the boat trip and of course we saw the sunken city. It’s impressive. The guide told us everything about this area and we even swam in kekova. For the rest of the day we toured around and had a lunch at a lovely restaurant. Another interesting place was the ancient city in Myra and the church of saint nikolas.
We booked this trip as a family before arriving in Side. Communication with the agency was quick and efficient. They are excellent in what they do. The reason why I chose this tour is that it has a boat trip and a sightseeing experience combined. We went to the ancient city of Myra, we visited some nice spots, and learn many things about the history of the area. I personally want to thank our guide for being such an incredible companion. The boat trip was also a good highlight. We took our time swimming at kekova and we saw the sunket city.
