It was a nice thing to do. Probably the best to be honest. So as we were told, they pick us up from the hotel. Car was modern and had comfortable seats. After a while we reached the port and enter the boat. It was a nice, wooden one and spacious as there were other people also in this tour. We sail to the river and from the decks we could see some pretty good views of the area. The crew was polite and friendly. Food was tasty, we only paid for alcohol in the boat so if you want some you should bring cash with you. We got a nice free time at the local bazaar, there are many interesting things to see there.
If you want something charming with good vibes then this boat trip is the perfect option. Nice people, exceptional organization, everything on time and according to the plan. The river boat trip is amazing. It was my first time in manavgat so I didn’t stop taking photos. It is a very calming landscape and you can admire nice views from the boat. We had a swimming break there. At manavgat we went to the bazaar where I bought some handmade souvenirs at fair prices. I liked everything about this trip. Recommended for all.
