Having arrived in Fethiye the night before an expected thunderstorm we hadn’t booked in advance. A quick google and a few messages later we were ready for a private tour with our own guide who was lovely. Brilliant service and super efficient, turned a bad weather day into a great excursion!

A good website with on-line booking up to 48hrs before the trip.
Pick-up from hotel was prompt.
The boat used was the 'Caroleanne' operated by the well established 'Carol & Tayfun'.
A lovely day out, but I would say that Gocek Market was a disappointment. However, Gocek itself is beautiful.
If I were to criticise anything, maybe 3 hrs in Gocek could be reduced by 30mins and the one hour stop for swimming on the return boat trip back to Fethiye could be put to a vote by passengers, because nobody on our tour wanted to stop. As a consequence, we didn't get back to our hotel until 7pm.

Nonetheless, I would thoroughly recommend this tour company

Thank you Alan for your review. As you mentioned the tour was operated by Carole and Tayfun and it is the only Gocek Boat Tour provider in the area so without competitors it will be really difficult to make them to change anything though we will do our best and will try to convince them that voting can be really good feature.

We were picked up on time and taken to KayaKoy the village from where this Camel Trek operates on arrival we were offered a glass of squash the camels were brought out and my friend and I were assisted in getting on them! We then went on the Trek round the track around the village with one of the guides taking pictures all the way. When were finished we were given to opportunity, after seeing the pictures that had been taken on a laptop, of buying them in the form of a DVD which I had no hesitation in purchasing The guides were polite and helpful at all times. If you want the lap of luxury this trip is not for you. IF YOU WANT FUN IT MOST CERTAINLY IS !!! Highly recommend it .

We booked online and paid and everything was smooth and simple. They picked us from the hotel at 10.
One thing was annoying that when we reached the boat all the pessengers entered the boat directly except us because our names were not on the list. The responsible asked us with which company we booked and made a phone call to make sure abt the booking.we waited for 3 to 4 minutes
And then he let us enter the boat.

Miriam, thank you for your time and feedback. I apologize for entry delay but sometimes such situations happen due to the human factor. We will do our best to make sure that this will never happen again.

Booked the 2 day tour to Ephesus and Pamukkale online with traveltofethiye.com (aka Vostok Travel). Booking was easy, they answered a couple of questions I had and I paid online. I thought this would be easier than having to contact a firm the day before travel to meet their local rep and pay cash, which was what some other companies wanted.

They contacted me just before the trip by WhatsApp and text to confirm arrangements. The taxi turned up on time (6.15 am) and took us from our remote hotel to the centre of Fethiye to join the main mini-bus. The actual tour was provided by Seaside Tours and was excellent (reviewed separately). I booked with Vostok Travel rather than Seaside because they said they only make one stop for an onyx factory whereas Seaside say they also stop at a carpet warehouse, but we stopped at both. Shame about the 2 shopping stops. We would have preferred to get back to the hotel 2 hours earlier instead.

Overall, a superbly organised trip with Yalcin our excellent and very humourous guide, and very good value for money.

Thank you for your time and kind feedback. I am really sorry about two commercial stops but there is the only one company in region that is allowed to do group tours to Ephesus and Pamukkale and as they say that without two commercial stops the price for this tour will be 30% higher. There is always an option - private tour - pickup whenever you want and go wherever you want.
