1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Relaxing on a beach after a days paddling into the wind and setting up camp in a lovely little cove away from everyone else.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Paddle the majority of your trip in the morning before the winds pick up.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. The company was a Turkish run company and was very aware of environmental impacts. They were proactive in keeping the areas used clean and tidy and reducing impacts to the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A brilliant trip. Got to get away from the crowded tourist areas and see the real beauty of Turkey. Really friendly and helpful guides and company owner who helped us with everything we needed and more.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

An excellent guide who was knowledgeable about the environment, sights, history and culture of the region. Engin was able to entertain Adults and children alike with little surprises when energy levels were flagging. We also enjoyed sleeping under the stars in remote locations and in particular the breakfast of Holumi and figs on Rabbit Island will be remembered forever.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You need to be reasonably fit. We are a family of 48/46/16/14 yrs which exercise regularly. We considered a 5 day Sea Kayak trip but opted for the 3 day one which was the right decision...it is more tiring than you think! Bring a snorkel or goggles.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Both our guide Engin and our driver were local people and the food we ate was sourced locally. The Kayak trip had no impact on the environment other than a positive one in that our guide constantly picked up litter from the sea and beaches.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

9.5 out of 10. A bit unfair really as the only negative was the litter on the beaches which is out of the tour company's control even though they did their bit to tidy up. Will definitely recommend to friends and consider another trip with this operator.
