Overview

Visit the ancient sites of Myra and St. Nicholas Church in Demre, then cruise to Kekova Island on a full-day tour from Antalya. Includes lunch, cruise, entrance fees, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
  • Full-day tour to St. Nicholas Church, Myra, and Kekova Island, from Antalya
  • View the sarcophagus and frescoes in St. Nicholas Church
  • View Lycian rock-cut tombs in the ancient Greek village known as Myra, now Demre
  • See ruins from the Byzantine era on Kekova Island
Start your day with morning pickup in Antalya then travel on scenic switchbacks with views of the Mediterranean Sea.

During the drive, stop for a short break at a viewpoint over the city of Kumluca, known for its tomato farms, and Finike, an ancient sea port. 

Arrive in Demre (known as Myra in ancient times) where you see Lycian ruins, including the necropolis carved into the stone cliffs, and a stunning theater. Tour St. Nicholas Church, the church in Demre named for the 4th-century bishop of Myra. The church is known for its colorful frescos, the sarcophagus of St. Nicholas, and three other monuments to the saint. 

Have lunch at a local restaurant, then drive about 30 minutes to Ucagiz pier. From there, board a boat for the cruise to Kekova Island. See the ruins of ancient Byzantine buildings, fortresses, theaters, and sarcophagi on the smaller and larger islands, and view a number of amphoras through the glass-bottom boat. If weather permits, take a swim in the clear waters of the gulf.

Afterward, return to the port and end your tour with hotel drop-off.

Not so good, guide spoke mostly in Russian, only 1hr boat ride.only 15min for swimming. Food was very poor ,low quality.guide was not to helpful. Almost didn't get of our stop. Because the guide assumed we knew. Didn't go inside one part of st Nicolas church, again , because of our guide.. could have been better.
Only for russians

We booked this tour and it was promised us in english. In the end 95 % of the tour was explained in russian so we didnt get much of this tour. Views were pretty but everything is just rocks if you dont get the history of it. Our guide Olga was sweet and pleasant and i understand that its not easy to do multilanguage tours, but for us this was not worth of the price and i cant recommend this to people who dont understand russian.
