Antalya and Kemer: Turkish Bath and Massage with Pickup

Visit a Turkish bath house and experience what's still a major part of Turkish culture — a spa of sorts for both cleansing and relaxing. Enter the public hammam and get a massage, hang out in the sauna or steam room, and leave feeling rejuvenated. The Turkish bath traditionally consists of a main circular and large marble steam room with high ceilings that are heated by a furnace. The center of the main room will have an elevated circular platform on which you can lay to experience the heat and get the massage and scrubbing. The surrounding walls are lined with individual sinks, referred to in Turkish as kurna, with hot and cold water taps that you sit next to and fill up with water at your desired temperature. Use metal or copper bowls to pour the water over your head and body. The most popular service offered at the Hamam is the scrub, which is named after the abrasive fabric used for the process. Lay on the center stone as the scrubber proceeds to rub the dead skin off of your entire body by using repetitive motions that will reveal dark rolls of skin and dirt.

What a wonderful day trip.. we were fetched at our hotel and then arrived at Olympus beach departure point and spent 3 wonderful stops in the ocean in order to swim at Suluada and along the way.. which is honestly amazing and a must see and swim when in Antalya. The water is really so wonderful!! Highly recommend this experience… the fish lunch was also so delicious!! The day trip is just a sufficient amount of time. So not too long as well

Thank you very much for the organizer! It was written that the tour was in English, (I, with ignorance of English, had nowhere to go ...) I was warned about this ... .. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised when we were transferred to a Russian-speaking bus halfway through and the guide told everything in Russian language!!! Special thanks for this!!! All liked it!!!

We had a really good time on the boat trip, the locations we stopped at and the length of time at each location was adequate. Be careful if you are not a strong swimmer at certain areas of Saluada have dangerous currents, but this warning is given when the boat departs. I would highly recommend the trip, food was also better than I expected.

Nice captain, good music, beautiful spots were approached and there was also a professional photographer on the boat. The food was delicious and the boat ride wasn't too long like the Mega Star boat tour.

An excellent excursion, we made several stops to swim in different fabulous places, I recommend.
