We have used Focus travel for about the last 5 years when staying in the Hisaronu Area of Turkey. However, this year we were very disappointed.
We booked the 'Dalyan Tour' 'which commenced with our 'Mini bus' ( not a coach as Focus say ) having to make an unscheduled stop at a garage to get the wheel fixed. This was undertaken whilst the passengers were just left to sit in the minibus watching the ensuing work ( quite unbelievable really !!).
We then commenced our journey , but then more disaster as we had to wait at the side of the road for the other 2 minibuses from Focus to join us. We then set off again in convoy, and eventually made it to Dalyan and boarded the boat.
In a cunning cost cutting exercise, you now have just one 'guide' between 3 boats .This means that you then proceed along the river, constantly having to wait for the other 2 boats to catch up. The guide then leaps between the boats giving his commentary. You stop for a mud bath at the newly refurbished area which, to be fair, is much better than the sulphurous smelling old site. The food provided is really poor and you are quite literally 'herded' like cattle to troughs
of food and then directed to tables. As 'Basil Fawlty' once famously said ' Put out a few troughs of baked beans and garnish them with a few dead dogs ' . Seriously though - the food was quite appalling with no consideration for children. It's then more river, a nice beach , (where you are also now charged to enter) - no mention of this incudentally by Focus . It's then back on the boat , mini bus and back home.
A poor trip , and we will definitely not be booking with FOCUS again,
