BASKET Travel Agency Sarigerme Reviews
A great way to see Turkey Feb 06, 2015
My trip to Turkey was more a relaxing holiday with friends in the sun so it was nice to have a couple of days exploring a bit of Turkey. Basket Travel Agency was a good opportunity to see Turkey from a knowledgeable local. They offer a few excursions but we only took 2; Göcek 12 Island Boat Trip and the Turtle Beach 3 in 1.
The first one we took was the Turtle Beach 3 in 1 excursion. They had a coach pick us up from our hotel to take us to our boat. During the coach ride we were introduced to our guide, Kenan, who was very entertaining with his knowledge about the country. But once we reached Dalyan we got on a lovely little boat and set off for the mud bath. Entry was included so we were able to go straight in. I had fun with this as it was like being a kid again playing in the mud. Then it was back on the boat to see the Rock Tombs that have been there for over 2000 years! After that we stopped off for lunch at a restaurant. We had the chance to try lots of Turkish food which was really good.
After lunch it was back on the boat for the main attraction; turtle beach! It's a beach that is helping turtle babies so it had facts posted around which were enjoyable to read. We had a nice walk around the beach which sadly had no turtles at that time. But our guide was prepared for this so had set up a little turtle fishing area so we could see turtles.
The next day we did the Göcek 12 Island Boat Trip. Once again we had a coach come and pick us up and we were delighted to see it was with the same guide. We knew we were in for another treat. We got back on the boat and had a relaxing boat trip around some beautiful clear waters. We had a few chances to get in the water and it was just amazing. We also had a stop at Pancake Island where we had the chance to get...pancakes!
Overall i was really impressed with these days out. It was a fun way of getting out of the hotel to see Turkey. I highly recommend anyone in the area checking them out
