Waste of a day
Sep 2020 • Couples
This was rubbish. Everyone on the excursion had been told different things, mostly that they'd go somewhere to see giant turtles and dolphins but the boat trip was simply a cruise down the river, ten minutes out to sea where it did a u-turn and came back, all while the crew made a few extra euro from refreshments and photos with a parrot. Then you stop at a beach separating the river and the sea (pictured) for an hour where they try to sell you jet ski, sunbeds, food and souvenirs. This felt incredibly pointless since we could all do any of it at the beach on any given day.

After that, you have lunch (no options, it's chicken and rice for everyone which was admittedly nice) then you're taken to the waterfall (additional charge but somewhat worth it). Told we'd have an hour here but driver decided we actually had 20 minutes. Then it's off to the market, which is why most people book the trip. Markets in Turkey are all the same, loads of cheap knock-off goods of varying quality. If that's what you're after, just book a taxi or take a bus to the market, which isn't far from the waterfall anyway. It'll save you all the wasted time and added expense on this pointless excursion.

Nice good value for money day trip from Side
Jul 2018
We booked the tour through Jet2. Pick up was from out Resort ( otium seven seas). The waterfall is okay. Can take nice photos there. The Boat trip and the beach swim was better. A working lunch was provided on the boat. Veg option was available in the form of cheese and potato filled pide bread ( just like stuffed paratha ). There was grilled chicken and grilled fish for the rest.

There was a stop to an clothing outlet. The tourguide did advertise it too well. It was just a crowded outlet to buy some branded clothes. We did buy some Turkish Bath Towels ( I.e. locally made good )

Manavgat mosque is a newly built mosque. We did see it on the inside. It was the only time that women had to cover their head with a scarf while inside the mosque. It was a good experience.

Manavgat market / bazar was our last stop. It is the best time to get a good bargain on whatever you want to buy to take back home.

Some tips:
Take euros cash as you will need them on the boat / outlet and the manavgat bazar
Take stuff you need for a swim in the sea or the river.
You will be photographed on the boat and be prepared to buy some photos.
Mosque visit of optional
