Overview

Manavgat makes a popular day trip from Side, but many tours only make a brief stop. This full-day tour includes a scenic cruise through the Manavgat delta, a delicious buffet lunch served on-board, a visit to the Manavgat falls, and free time to browse the stalls at the Manavgat bazaar. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
  • Full-day Manavgat waterfall, river cruise, and bazaar tour from Side
  • Cruise around the Manavgat Delta and cool off with a swim at a riverside beach
  • Tuck into a Turkish-style buffet lunch on-board
  • Enjoy magnificent views of the Manavgat waterfall
  • Soak up the atmosphere and shop for souvenirs at the Manavgat Bazaar
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up, lunch, and round-trip transport
Your tour begins with pick-up from your central Side in time for a 9am departure. Traveling by air-conditioned coach, set out on the short drive to Manavgat river pier, where your boat will be waiting for you.

Set sail down the river, soaking up the scenery as you cruise through the delta, then stop to swim or sunbathe at a riverside beach. After an around 45-minute beach break, hop back aboard to re-fuel with a delicious buffet lunch, served on deck. Feast on typical Turkish salads, rice and bulgur dishes, and grilled fish or chicken, and (if you selected the all-inclusive option), accompany it with a cool beer or glass of wine (soft drinks and water are also available).

After lunch, cruise back into Manavgat town and transfer to a tour bus for the 10-minute drive to the Manavgat Waterfall. You’ll have around 30 minutes of free time to explore the viewpoints, take photos, and enjoy the natural wonder before heading back to town.

Spend the rest of the afternoon browsing the stalls at the lively Manavgat Bazaar, where you can shop for souvenirs, relax at a local café, sample street food (own expense), or just enjoy the atmosphere of the lively street market, which is one of the biggest along Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.

Back in Side, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4pm.

Please note: During beach break the on-board bar will be closed.

It wasnt as described at all, we started on the Manavgat river which was filthy with rubbish and what looked like sewage, we stopped at a filthy beach on the river mouth for a swim for 45 mins when they closed the bar! They then served lunch which was ok but still no bar staff, We paid for the all inclusive trip. after lunch we went straight to the harbour at Side, from where we were suppose to start the trip we were told the boat trip was over and a bus would take us to the waterfalls and bazaar. They took us to the wrong side of the waterfalls where it was a rough path where the older people couldnt get down to see, where as across the waterfalls was a proper viewing area with paths etc. The bazaar was a textile market selling all the countrfeit gear especially for tourists. Then bus back to the hotels. The boat was a novelty to go on though, a lookalike pirate ship with crows nests.

Great tour with great hosts. A really nice and calm boat ride. The bazaar itself is a must see to get good deals and gifts for family.
