What a fantastic day out! Volkan really has raised the bar with this one. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, search no further. Volkan made every part of this ‘adventure’ special. Starting with breakfast, picnic style on the bus, lunch overlooking Kalkan harbour and the grand finale of dinner by candlelight on the beach.
If you want to try something that no one else in Dalyan is offering this trip is for you.

Absolutely wonderful trip, I took my mother along with me as she has always wanted to visit kas and we had a fabulous day, everything was just perfect. Very relaxed atmosphere and the agenda allowed plenty of opportunity to sit and enjoy your surroundings if you want to, or to fill your time completely with a wide range of things to see and do if you want to stay more active- something for everyone and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves so thanks to the team for a great trip, hope to see you all soon.

Wow! What and amazing day. Yes, it is a long day, but you see and experience so much, so don’t let that put you off. Starting with the superb breakfast in the sunshine in a village close to Gocek, then amazing views and scenery you experience at every stage of the trip. The incredible ruins at Patara followed by a relaxing break (in the bar, on our visit!) on Patara Beach. A superb lunch in a restaurant overlooking the harbour in Kalkan, then time on the delightful pebble beach with a swim in the crystal clear water (swim optional!). Finally, the wonderful drive down the coast to Kas, where we had free time to explore the town followed by a drink together in a bar full of atmosphere on the edge of the town square. And to end the day, another superb two course meal at the beachside restaurant on the pebble beach, just outside Kas. It was a brilliant, but informal and relaxed day with a delightful group of people and an excellent, friendly guide in Murat. If you want to experience the real Turkey, this trip is a ‘no brainer’! and exceptionally good value. Thank you, Volkan and Murat for such a great day!

I can only endorse everything that Brian says above!! It is a long day but full of delights and a chance to see the scenery, beaches, ruins and resorts near to Dalyan . Our breakfast was st a farm and the ducks and kittens were a joy ( when not stealing your bread) ! It’s worth doing a little online research beforehand to fully appreciate the importance in ancient times of Patara. A memorable day big take comfy shoes and crocs for the pebble beach at the end .

We have been on a number of tours with Volkans Adventures and enjoyed every one. My favourite was The Mediterranean Highlights visiting Kalkan and Kas, although the it was a long day it was so worth it. Our guide was very knowledgable, attentive and entertaining. We had 3 meals on this tour (included in the price) which were all fantastic. Met some lovely people and made some lovely friends.

Me and my Husband had a really beautiful day out, our tour guide made it really special from start to finish I would highly recommend these Adventures. Going through the local villages and looking at all the hand crafted pottery and souvenirs, our tour guide made it really feel like we were just a group of friends on a trip together.

It is, as the description says, a long day but it is well worth it. The breakfast was delicious and set the day of to a great start and allowed time to get to know fellow guests. The drives during the day were through spectacular scenery and there was always something interesting to see. Kalkan was a lovely town and we had lunch in a gorgeous restaurant with Sparta ulnar views. For me, the highlight of the day was Kas. Such a picturesque town. Round all of this off with a lovely meal by the beach. Recipe for a perfect day. Thanks Julie for making the day so enjoyable.

We did this trip a couple of years ago. It was excellent a long day but well worth it. Loved Kas and Kalkan. We will be going again this year can’t wait.
