Preiswert und gutes Programm

Zu empfehlen, die Touren sind den Preis wert. Wir haben auf unserer Bootstour zwar leider keine Delphine gesehen, dafür aber mehrere Meeresschildkröten..

Как мы сегодня прикольно съездили на корабле от компании Vigo Tours покататься

Из Сиде абсолютно не далеко было до нашего кораблика. Все по времени, хорошо организовано! Останавливались в очень красивых местах, было пару остановок на плавание. На обед предлагают рыбку гриль или курицу, кстати очень вкусные блюда! И они включены в стоимость тура! Река Манавгат бирюзового цвета, благодаря этому получаются шикарные фотографии. Ребята на корабле все гостеприимные, хорошие аниматоры! Турецкие танцы заводят вместе с гостями, а затем начинается пенная дискотека! Путешествие очень комфортное и весёлое! Спасибо Vigo Tours!

War nichts mit Delphinen Insel

Ausgeschrieben als fährt zur Delphineninsel, bekommen Eine Fahrt durch die Pampa von Manavgat, fährt aufs mehr kurzer Blick auf Side old Town von Meer aus, fährt zurück. 1 Stunde Schaumparty war das einzige Highlight der Fahrt

Reply from Vigo Tours: Thank you very much for your review!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Wir glauben, dass Sie die folgenden Informationen auf der Tourseite verpasst haben: In der Nebensaison (April und Mai) führt diese Tour je nach Wetterbedingungen möglicherweise nicht zur Insel Karaburun, dies stellt jedoch kein Hindernis dar, während der Tour Delfine im Meer zu sehen. Die Bootstour dauert an der Mündung des Flusses Manavgat und rund um Side mit vielen Schwimmpausen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Vigo Tours




Морская прогулка по острову дельфинов в Сиде

Мы участвовали в лодочной экскурсии по острову Сиде дельфинов. Нам было очень весело. Мы видели 2 дельфина в море!! Экипаж лодки очень дружелюбный, и обед на лодке был отличным. Пенной вечеринки не было из-за короны. Также на лодке есть русскоговорящий гид. Мы заплатили 20 долларов с человека, и цена очень разумная.




Очень хорошо!

Действительно хорошее развлечение! Время загорать и отдыхать, купаться в открытом море, с возможностью прыгнуть с высоты 7 метров! Отличные анимации! Мы видели дельфинов в море!




Морская экскурсия в Сиде
