8 best excursions in Kemer: prices 2022 and description

8 best tours in Kemer.

Picked 8 most interesting excursions in Kemer, which are loved by us and tourists.

Where to buy tours

The most expensive and the lowest quality excursions offer tour operators. So it is better not to get anything from the hotel guides. In general, it’s better not to contact with them – you won’t meet a bigger cheater anywhere. What nonsense they do not believe in to gullible tourists! Sightseeing and especially renting a car in Turkey is very dangerous, no one is responsible for you, and locals are just waiting for an opportunity to rob you. In the era of the pandemic, these scoundrels have invented another trick: allegedly, only buying an excursion from the hotel guide, you can get into a kind of police “base” and get the opportunity to freely walk around the resort and move around the country. And how can they not be ashamed of such a brazen lie? In general, it is better to stay away from these rascals. Learn the truth about the tours in Turkey.

All tours we buy only on our favorite service Tripster. There you can read real reviews of tourists, so it is easy to choose a good and interesting excursion. Prices are lower than the street vendors, and there is more reliability. In addition, there are unique author’s tours that will show you the country from a new side. I heartily recommend it.

Vacationing on an island paradise

Suluada Island is often called the Turkish Maldives – not to be confused with Lake Salda, which is called exactly the same. In Turkey they like to call something Maldives, but to us these places around the uninhabited island reminded us more of Italy and Greece. The water is so clear and turquoise that you want to swim in it, and the pictures come out very juicy.

The tour lasts more than 12 hours. During the boat trip you will visit several picturesque bays and swim in the most beautiful places!

Price . The 2022 tour to the Turkish Maldives from Kemer costs 32€ per person.

Two days in the Land of Beautiful Horses is not enough, but enough to see the main beauty and to be impressed. By comparison, we spent almost a week there and walked around all the valleys.

During the trip you will see many beautiful valleys, an underground city, cave churches with frescoes, rock fortress cities, and get to fly in a hot air balloon! The flight is paid for separately. We can recommend this tour on a hot-air balloon (here cheaper, there are reviews). Book it in advance, because there are not always places in season.

Go to Pamukkale and fly in a hot-air balloon

Pamukkale is the second most popular natural wonder in Turkey. Just imagine – it is a spa resort with a 2200-year history! The place is wonderful: the snow-white travertine with blue water, the ancient ruins of the city, mentioned in the Bible, the famous “rejuvenating” Cleopatra pool. In general, it is beautiful, interesting and healthy. :) So I advise to come here. The place, though untwisted, but we liked it.

That’s the kind of ship that usually takes you on boat rides. Lyosha on the ruins of Phaselis. I advise you to wander through the remains of the ancient city during the tour – it’s small, but interesting. From the amphitheater of Fazelis there is a beautiful view of Mount Tahtali.

Kemre, Kekova, Mira

  • Price for a guided tour in Kemer: 25 €
  • Duration: 11 hours

There is one main reason why Demre, Mira, Kekova should be visited as part of a tour from Kemer – it’s a much closer drive from here! I remember back in 2006 they took us there from Side! We drove 6 hours one way, because we stopped at “advertising stores” and somewhere else on the way. What a pity no one told me that at the time. It was far, expensive and very tiring. And from Kemer to go to Demre, Mira, Kekova is the best, there is nowhere closer, and the prices are lower, because the transfer is shorter.

What is included in this tour from Kemer:

I liked it very much in Pamukkale. I myself work with stone, as a specialist it was interesting to me to see the process of travertine formation. But it is better to go with overnight stay, because only in the morning and evening you can walk around without tourists. And to see Hierapolis in peace. For one day to go is of course a mockery.
