Breathtaking scenery, delicious food, great group and brilliant Turkish tour guide Zeynep. Although this was my 3rd trip to Turkey I felt like it was my 1st. Trekking was a really good way to experience Turkey, a great introduction to Turkish history and culture.*A highlight of the trip for me was the first day, it rained so much that we were all soaked to the skin despite rainwear! We stopped for lunch at a family farmhouse and ate the most delicious pancakes I've ever tasted, I couldn't stop eating them!

Theo old ways were lovely and the guide Zeynep was so friendly and experienced ans we had grest Fun together. It was a pleasure to walk with her and great to have a local guide who had good relationship with the local people. The village houses were very basic but I did not mind. The people were so hospitable and it was great to meet them. I was a bit worried about the lenghts of the alks as I am just medium fit but it was ok and I am proud and glad I made all of them and did not have to travel with the luggage.
The hotel in Kas was not nice and
not friendly, very dull, a typical worn out big hotel. I would have preferred to stay in a small more local pension or guesthouse even if it would have been less comfortable. Thats my only critic. Otherwise everything was perfect and very well organized
Great mixture of nature, walks, people and culture. And thanks for doing it with just two people.

The tour went smoothly from start to finish. We were fortunate in having an enthusiastic and helpful guide, as well as a great mix of people, from late 20's to 70's. The guide was very dedicated and interacted well with all members of the group, making lots of helpful suggestions. She was very informative and was also interested in what other members of the group had to say.

There wasnt one single highlight, because every day was varied. The walking was incredible, and the boat/swimming day was great fun. My tip would be to get yourself fit before you go, then make the most of the experience and company.

I liked the walk to the hamlet and ancient port of Aperlae and from there by boat to the castle-topped village of Simena. We also got to swim from the boat and then had a BBQ. This was the perfect finish at an excellent holiday. Our group got on so well and that made the holiday for me. Tips, well it does get hot, so a hat is a must and walking poles come in handy too.

The last day of the tour was the best with a short walk to Aperlae followed by a swim, a fantastic on-board bbq and a trip to a hilltop fort. All walks were great - plenty of uphill to test the thighs and not so much downhill to put strain on knees/toes.

The lycian way is a lovely walk, with excellent views. Really enjoyed the village houses and the local food. The roman temple / ruins at Petara were an unexpected highlight, though the Petara hotel was disappointing when we stayed there. It was the first few days after it had reopemned and whilst the refurbishment had probably improved the bedrooms there were still lots of teething issues (and lots of mosquito's) which needed to be resolved. Tour leader was excellent and overall a very enjoyable trip.

Worth using good boots and poles .slippy terrain in the wet..We had some heavy rain. Highlights were the walking terrain . Only disappointing day was the walk to kas which was very repetitive inland terrain.
