Overall, it was a very successful trip. The boat ride was just what we had hoped for. Kekova and the sunken city were fascinating to visit. Myra, on the other hand, is really intriguing, even if we had expected her to be a little larger. Our tour guide was excellent and provided us with a lot of important details along the way. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
