What to expect
  • Meet a guide at your centrally-located Alanya hotel, then board a climate-controlled coach for the 58-mile (94-km.) trip to Aspendos. Explore the ruins on your own, which are listed as a tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site, taking in aqueducts, temples, and the spectacular Roman Amphitheater, a landmark built under the rule of Marcus Aurelius. The next stop is Kursunlu Waterfalls, where you’ll find the picturesque cascades wrapped in a pine forest. Photograph a historic mill, descend a staircase to the waterfall, and watch for the turtles and trout that can be seen just below the surface of the water. Visit a restaurant for a lunch of salad and fish, chicken, or pide, a kind of Turkish flatbread, then tour the nearby leather and jewelry shop (this is the perfect place to pick up unique souvenirs from the area). After lunch, continue to the ancient ruins of Side, a sprawling site with well-preserved walls, an agora, or public square, Roman baths, and more. Take in Side's landmarks, from ancient Roman temples to the nymphaeum spring. Following your time at Side, begin the return trip to Alanya, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

It was a long day
So we booked the Full-Day Tour of Kursunlu Waterfalls, Aspendos, and Ancient Ruins of Side From Alanya.

We booked this through Tripadvisor. On booking, it advised default pick up time was 0815hrs but stated we need to make contact with the company to confirm. Our hotel called and were told 0800hrs. I also emailed the company and they said 0815hrs. So waited outside from 0800hrs to be on the safe side.

As expected bus arrived at 0815hrs. Met by our tour guide i would mention his name but he never told us. He stated that he normally does the Russian tours but we would be with him. We picked up from several other hotels. There were two other English people and about 10 Russians.

From the start we were pretty much left out of most the chats from the Guide who spoke in Russian.

Through out the day it got considerably worse. It was all quite funny to begin with but soon became damn right rude. We had paid for this tour that was listed as English and we were very much left to feel that we had gate crashed someone's party and were not welcome.

The guide continued to only engage with the Russian speaking customers whilst we sat there having no idea what was going on.

When the guide had spoken to us in the morning, his English was very poor making it hard to understand anything he said to us anyway.

This tour is not for English only speaking people.

Saw some interesting sites. Lunch was fine, tasted nice but was quite small.

The waterfall was disappointing, it was very small. Over crowded so not very peaceful. The area has been taken over as a tourist attraction with lots of shops.

It's a long day. We didn't get back to the hotel until 1830hrs.

To top it off the driver drove past our hotel and dropped us off on the wrong side of a busy road.

Nice family experience

We enjoyed a lot especially the cave.

However the tour is a little lengthy for kids and by the end they were too tired.

Really good trip
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Waterfalls are lovely but would advise anyone with mobility problems there are a lot of steps that don't have handrails. Aspendos is amazing, but again anyone with mobility issues would not get the full experience

Just amazing
Oct. 2018
Took this trip this week and its amazing, We would never have found it without a tour but so glad we did. Just note that if you hire a car these places cost pennys to get it. We did a trip from Alanya which included Side temples and the waterfall and it cost £28 all in. Only problem was we only had a short time here and there is so much more to see around it.
