Rafting tours in Dalaman River Turkey: Transfers: Your Transfers will be arrange from hotels in Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye, Oludeniz and back.
If your heart is strong enough, if you are not pregnant, and if you don't have asthma, join a White Water Rafting tour on Dalaman River which is only 90 minutes to Marmaris. Don't miss this tour, if you want to fight with the strong bubbles, paddling down the river (sometimes falling and capsizing!), and if you don't mind getting wet. The distance is 12 km and the lunch is given on the shore, nearly midway. If you are brave enough, you must choose the inflatable kayaks for two, and if you are not, you'll travel on a big raft with a guide.
The tour is completely safe. Don't forget to smile to the cameras on the hardest rapids with the helmets, life jackets, and the paddles in your hands. Dalaman River situated within Mugla province borders amongst Koycegiz and Dalaman is offering you R2 and R3 (difficulty rate : 3-4+) level course services. The river increases the adrenaline of the participants to the rafting activity through its rapid and exciting course track. Dalaman Upper River, which courses through a scenic gorge, is laced with Class I-III rapids that offer easy to moderate summer whitewater -- but still plenty of excitement -- for kids as young as 6. On a hot summer day, join the rafting team to cool down in the waters of fast mountain river near Dalaman. The rafting routes are specially designed for the different levels of rafting experience or none at all. You can be rafting by yourself or together with your friends in the larger boats. Usually there is a break for lunch since the trip program is for all afternoon. You are advised to take two sets of clothes, sun cream, sun cap, camera and money for extras. (L)

Dear Mr. Sen: Our family greatly enjoyed our vacation in Turkey, including the tour of Western Turkey arranged by Ezop Travel.
The guide you provided, Timur, was well-informed, friendly and a good travel companion.
We appreciated that he was flexible as well, for example when we decided we'd seen enough Roman and
Greek ruins and asked to substitute an afternoon on the beach for the ruins at Troy.
