    I’m actually writing a review for a private boat trip that Jimmy arranged for us rather than this jeep safari but this also looks amazing!

    We had the best day - Jimmy helpfully picked us up from our hotel and drove us to our own boat which was Captained by two super friendly guys who kindly took us around the beautiful bays of Marmaris, where we swam and did a bit of snorkelling.

    We were provided with snacks and coffee on board, and had the whole afternoon to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. I wish we’d done the full day!

    All in all, it was an amazing experience at an extremely reasonable price. Better than any other trip I’ve been on!

    Thank you Jimmy! :)

    What a great place to go for a jolly on horse back. I was on a family holiday and we thought we would try horse ridding. I am a accomplished horse rider but still found this a nice little hack around the woods and though the river. No-one else in my family can ride but they thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Hay as they are all known was a great instructor and all the horses were so well behaved. I enjoyed it that much i booked a private ride out to the beach... Well i had a blast my horse Star didn't put a foot wrong and thanks to Ibrahim (Hay) this made my holiday.
    And the nice bit about it is that you get to feed/pat your pony/horse when you finish, the horses look forward to this bit as they all line up waiting for their treat. Nice to see them so well looked after.
    Cant wait to go back next year.

    One hell of a day out I must say! Me and my dad went on this trip during our 2 week stay in Marmaris and to say the least it was great fun. (But I think everyone anticipates how muddy you well and truly get😂).

    I was very sceptical as this only had one review and i never would normally book anything unless i could get a clear idea of what this entails. Luckily i can do that for you now!

    So, we got picked up from Marmaris on time in the car around 10am as we are the only ones they have to get. They only do private tours since Covid and the guide wore the mask in the car. We also wore masks. The drive is around 1 hour to the home of the guides where you change to the van. This has all the helmets and drinks in. They have two helpers during the summer who bring the dogs along. They are really cute. They also have a puppy on site. They were very welcoming and made sure we had plenty of water. They bring the dogs along with us as there are sometimes snakes in the water, and the noise of the dogs scares them away.
    You will see some wildlife on the trip. Crabs, frogs and fish - we didn't see any snakes, so the dogs worked!

    Once we set off it is around 20 minutes in the van to the spot. You are given a helmet. No wet suit as it's too hot. The water is refreshingly cool to get into. such lovely scenery. You start at a small pool to cool off after the walk up. Then start through the water and up some falls. I think there were two or three spots where we climbed up on the ropes. Some rock climbing involved at parts as well. You also have the option to jump off a rock into a deep pool at one point. As we managed to get up quickly, they took us a little further up the canyon and to a larger waterfall with pool. A really good sight.

    The female guides English was great and the males was OK. She led most of the activity. The man mostly sets up the ropes for the climbs. They are very welcoming also.

    Once the trip was finished, we made our way back down the canyon to the van and back to the guides house. They made us lunch which was late in the day (so make sure you have a big breakfast). It was fantastic food. They told us they normally take people to a restaurant but because of Covid it wasn't possible. I thought this was great. We had soup, meatballs, salad, bread, and spaghetti. We were full afterwards. They even gave us some soft drinks and offered us beer which was no extra charge.

    Before heading home they took us to a lake nearby and showed us where we could see the real Turkey and some cheap places to stay. They even showed us a cash machine where we could get money out for the video as we didn't have any cash left. They didn't need to do this for us, but drove us out of their way so we are really grateful for this. We got back to the hotel around 7.30pm

    You have the option to buy the video from the day which they do on a gopro. This is 250TL. One of the most expensive we have paid but worth it. They do not take card so it has to be cash.

    If you are going to do something outside of the norm on holiday i would choose this, and if we were asked if we would do it again? ABSOLUTELY. We are not ones for tourist areas and activities so this was something we really wanted to do. They are such lovely people and I have never met guides who really care as much about the enjoyment of the customer as much as they do. They really are very welcoming and made the day really enjoyable.

    We had a choice between the 10.00 or 14.00 ride, we chose the latter to break up the day. We were picked up 10 minutes early by a very pleasant driver who fast lost patience when other customers were not ready on time! On the return he stopped off so we could take pictures of the view which was a lovely gesture.
    We bought two bags of carrots and apples for our horses at a cost of 30tl a bag, had a safety talk, put our bags etc in lockers provided and fitted with our helmets. We were asked if any of us were experienced riders so I put my hand up and a suitable horse was chosen. My only complaint at this point was there was no mounting block and I'm not the most agile of folk. I ended up hurting my knee trying to mount and again on dismount, nobodies fault but my own! A mounting block would come in handy and prevent these types of injuries. It however did not spoil the riding experience for me at all. My only other complaint was the 1 hour 30 minute ride as advertised lasted only 40 minutes maximum. We also only walked across and back over the stream not down it as advertised. Had I been on my own I would have complained but felt it was ample for other family members who were beginner riders.
    We purchased photos (see picture quality) at 100tl each but the price comes down the more you buy so I got 9 photos for 800tl. I would say the tour was good rather than average but the scores go from average to very good on TripAdvisor.

    Booked through local agent in marmaris, sold as being lovely quiet boat trip - just a short distance away. Prices are about double the normal boat trips around marmaris.

    Anyway bus didn't turn up for 45 mins after it should of then, driving at break neck speed dropped us off in middle marmaris, where someone said we will get you a taxi!!

    10 mins later taxi driver - driving in same manner then headed off to Hisaronu.

    We stopped half way there where our original bus was waiting.

    We arrived about 30 mins late and were ushered on the boat. Not too busy but only English speaking people on boat. Not a problem, however.

    All messages are in Russian and if they remember they mention a cut down version in English. All prices are in $ and menu etc in Russian.

    85% of the music was loud Russian pop / dance, if you like that kind of thing.

    The stops for swimming were lovely, the island where the rabbits were was bit waste of time. Only 1 appeared.

    The buses at the end were another shambles, told to go away for 10 mins to visit the jesus beach, come back and option is bus to marmaris or icmeler. (Icmeler bus like a ride at Blackpool coming back..)

    Boat was nice and loads of beds but not worth the hassle and lack of comms imo.

    Will stick to like of captain bull, at least you know what's going on!!

    We had a wonderful trip thanks to Essence Travel. Everything went well and according to plan. The local tour guides were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I wouldn't change a single thing about our trip.
    We will definitely be back to Turkey -- and will definitely use Essence Travel again! Highly recommend.
