Top Tours & Activities in Antalya
Among its many resorts, ruins, beaches, and canyons, you'd have to try pretty hard to be bored in Antalya! This coastal city at the foot of the Taurus Mountains is one of Turkey's most popular tourist destinations. Here are ten reasons why!
The Old Town is a great place to explore independent art galleries and boutiques among monumental structures that survived from the Ottoman, Byzantine, and even Roman empires.
To Kaleiçi's south lies an ancient Roman harbor dating back to the second century BC. It was used for trade up until the 20th century, and is still a popular yachting marina!
Termessos isn't only one of Turkey's best-preserved ancient cities. At the top of Mount Güllük, it offers an array of rare plant and animal species, as well as spectacular views!
Another impressive ancient site in the Antalya province is the capital of former Pamphylia. Book a day-trip to explore its Agora, Nymphaeum, Roman theater, and many other ruins!
Unlike most rivers, the waters of the Düden empty into the Mediterranean by cascading over Antalya's coastal cliffs. It's one of the region's most unmissable natural sights!
Another natural wonder within reach is the sun-scorched Cappadocia, renowned for its extraordinary fairy-chimney rock formations!
The 14-century mosque's eponymous "fluted minaret" is one of Antalya's most iconic landmarks. Located in Kaleiçi, there's no excuse not to add it to your sightseeing checklist!
The Göynük National Park is yet another of Antalya's natural treasures, but also a recreational hotspot. Hike, swim, or even zipline across its pristine landscape!
The ancient Lycian city was an important trading post under Alexander the Great, but its exquisite beaches are as much an attraction as its extensive ruins.
One of Turkey's most popular museums tells Antalya's extraordinary history through its excavated relics. With a dedicated children's museum, it won't bore the little ones either!
Antalya is Turkey's most popular coastal resort for a reason – it's one of the country's sunniest cities! Summer temperatures frequently exceed 35°C (95°F), so if you're used to a cooler climate, you'll probably find late spring (April to May) a lot more tolerable.
There's a lot to see and do in Antalya, so book a week in order to enjoy the beaches and natural attractions without having to hurry your sightseeing!

What People Are Saying About Antalya
It was really nice tour the guide was very friendly and cooperative pickup to and from the airport was well managed the hospitality provided by the staff is remarkable
Water is warm even out of season, crew if very friendly. The sea is poor and there's a lot of rubbish on the bottom which nobody cares to remove. You can see some fishes though. Boat is comfortable enough and lunch is ok. Some people smoke on board and nobody tries to stop them. Equipment is quite worn.
We booked your service and we are more than satisfied. Transport from airport to our hotel in Side was as good as was recommended by other tourists. Our children were very pleased with wifi in tax and cold drinks.
Very well organised tour, good pick up by friendly and funny driver, upon arrival we were split into language groups, everything was swift and explained well, you could also purchase water shoes if you did not have one. Rafts were comfortable and our guide Emre was very experienced and fun so our rafting was really good. I was a bit afraid when he said he will flip the boat over, but he must have changed his mind seeing this, because all trip was aboard. He made rafting really safe and fun. He did look after me when i almost fell overboard. Boat fights were also fun and our boat won every time. It was really good tour and would do it again.
Even September is maybe not the best birdwatching month in southern Europe and to watch Brown Fish Owls in Turkey, our Guide did a lot for us to see as many species we wanted to see. Not all was successful, but we tried many alternatives from 9 o`clock am until 2 o`clock in the next morning! Brown Fish Owl we could not see because of several unfavourable conditions like windy weather and picnic people in the area of resting Fish Owls, but we heard Female callings from a valley. The Guide was patient, friendly and very helpful! We saw more than 50 species in one day. Target areas were the mouth of the river Manavgat, the river Manavgat in the Taurus Mountains and the area around Akseki. Thanks a lot!!!!
