This was a perfect day trip from Kaş. Started with a 9 am meeting at the office, where I was even offered coffee! Then we (our group was just 2 solo travelers) were transported by a very nice van to Üçağız where, after a short lesson, we took off in our kayaks! We paddled across the water to Kekova Island, where we pulled in at a small bay for swimming and hiking around the ruins. Then we paddled all along the Kekova Sunken City before crossing the water to a small village where the castle is. After a delicious lunch of grilled fish, rice, French fries, and salad (included in the tour cost), we hiked up the hill to the castle. From there we enjoyed 360-degree views! Our guide, Barbaros was extremely knowledgeable of local history and had many fun facts, and his relaxed and playful demeanor made the whole day wonderfully enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour or any others led by Barbaros!

We had an amazing experience kayaking with Barbaros. He was great at explaining the basics of kayaking and really helpful and patient. The tour was so informative and interesting but not in a boring tour guide way but rather very relaxed as if a friend was showing you around. We went to different sites and each one we had as much time as we needed to explore. I loved that there was no rush so you could really enjoy the experience. We went in February which was perfect as the weather was still amazing but it was quiet so we had the whole place to ourselves. Barbaros prepared a lovely lunch as the restaurants were closed but it was perfect sitting by the water soaking up the sun. Couldn’t recommend this more. Barbaros is a really friendly and good natured person which really made the experience. Highly recommend.

Highly recommend this guide, one of our best experiences in turkey We were very fortunate to have Barbaros as our guide. Not only that Kekova itself is unbeliveably beautiful, but Barbaros himself is a very proffessional, helpful and experienced guide. He is fluent in English and was quick to respond.
