        A joyous way to explore Kekova Island
        Exploring Kekova by sea kayak is absolutely brilliant. Barbi is knowledgeable and engaging and describes the island in beautifully crafted sound bites throughout the tour. No better way to see the sunken city than to drift directly over it. Highly recommend.

        Kayaking with Barbie - don’t miss it
        It was a fantastic trip with Barbie as our guide- - he was very funny but exceptionally knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects especially history. Very good English, brilliant sense of humour. We learned loads. Scenery was breathtaking and the water beautiful and the lunch was the best food we had in Turkey during our 3 week stay. If you are in Kas it’s a must do trip.

        Kayaking was the best thing we did with Kas. Barbi was the nicest tour guide we ever had; super nice with us and welcoming.

        Great canoe trip to Kekova Island.
        We booked this trip through a helpful travel agent in Kas. I didn't know what to expect from the trip but we had an absolutely brilliant day. I booked with a friend and we joined a group of about 20 people to canoe over to Kevova Island. Our two guides were very experienced & knowledgeable & really friendly. The equipment was excellent & the scenery was absolutely beautiful. We stopped for a great lunch where we were given plenty of delicious freshly cooked food. We had lots of opportunities to stop & swim during the day.I would recommend this company and the trip with this company to anyone.

        Great way to explore with the best guide
        Barberous is a such great guide, full of knowledge and insight into Turkish life and history and fun, friendly guide . My husband and I went in May . The kayaking was really good - a nice balance of exercise and sight seeing, but not too strenuous. Lunch was lovely. I would highly recommend this trip, a great way to explore the area

        Don’t hesitate to book with Barbaros
        We had an excellent experience with Barbaros. His knowledge of history, culture, wildlife and farming was unlimited and we found the day fascinating. We were a bit concerned about the amount of kayaking we needed to do as we are in our late 50’s and not very fit. He assured us we would manage and he was correct. It is definitely the way to see the ruins as you get a lot closer than the boats and it’s a lot more tranquil and slow gliding over and past them.

        Fabulous experience with a knowledgeable guide
        Just the right balance of workout and fun, with a fabulous guide in Barbaros. I learned more history and geography than I ever did at school, plus some evolution of language knowledge for good measure, whilst we spent the day kayaking - which was moderately hard work, and fascinating. An exceptional guide and a wonderful day spent on the water, featuring a walk up to the castle - which has 307 steps and about 14 ice cream shops, in case you were wondering. Even our 21 and 24 year old daughters enjoyed it and rarely looked at their phones except to take photos.

        Best activity we've done on a summer holiday
        We were advised by friends that this was the one activity on our trip to SW Turkey that we shouldn't miss, and they were right - perfect blend of adventure, good food, and history. Extremely reasonable price. Barbie's knowledge of local history is limitless - he added context to the the historical sites we didn't get elsewhere, and there wasnt a question about local history (or politics for that matter that he couldn't answer).

      I’ve been coming to Turkey for 10 years now and can honestly say that this was one of the funnest days yet. Eight of us took a private tour with Barbaros which was perfectly organised from moment we were picked up in Kalkan. Beautiful scenery, rich history, lovely clear water, a yummy lunch and water sports. You can’t beat this day out. Don’t miss out. We look forward to doing it again next year and won’t be waiting another 10 years. Thank you.

      All the family agreed that this was the best day of the holiday. Barbaros is a great guide he gave us a well planned kayaking tour taking in beautiful scenery and historical sites with breaks for swimming, snorkelling, site seeing and a lovely lunch. Transfers arranged for us. Very professional. Would highly recommend.

      We were so hopeful we could do this trip on our visit to Kas in April. Barbaros responded to my messages and chose the most perfect day of weather with light winds and sunshine all day. Myself and my 14 year old were treated to an Amazing day with Barbaros who is a fabulous guide. We learnt so much about Turkey, local history, the region and local life. The kayaking was glorious with the sea to ourselves at times. Kekova island so peaceful with water warm enough to swim. April is Simena was just breathtakingly beautiful. I cannot recommend Barbaros more. He is friendly knowledgeable and easy going. We had an absolutely fantastic trip

      A highlight from our two week trip to Turkey. We did a private kayak tour with Barbaros and it was spectacular. He is kind, fun, and very knowledgeable. We were a group of 7, ages 12 to 50 and everyone had an amazing time. If you do one thing while in Kalkan/Kas, do the kayak trip.

      Amazing tour of the Kekova sunken ruins and suroundings . The guide provided us with really interesting historical context and useful kayaking tips. The pace was perfect, no rushing, plenty of time to admire the senery and swim in the mediteranean sea. Food was great. I higly recomend this. It was one of the highlights of our trip!

      Wow ! What a great day out & wonderful adventure made even more special by our host “Barbie”.

      The area is stunning, truly special, peaceful, tranquil and when seen by Kayak it’s even more special. Barbie led a fantastic day, just the right pace, stopping at all the best locations and his guiding was superb. Right from the moment we met in Kas & throughout the whole tour Barbie filled the day with facts and features to get the most from the experience.

      The lunch stop in Kekova was perfect, great hospitality & a chance to see this hidden gem in Turkey.

      All in all a super day out with Barbaros Guide which is highly recommended.

      Phenomenal day out with Barbaros. We were a family of five, 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Great chats & informative explanations from our guide. Best table in the village for lunch, salad, best chips and chicken kebabs. The kayaking is very easy. I would wholeheartedly recommend Barbaros and this day out.
