Hop on a guided double-decker bus tour of Alanya and get to know the city’s most popular sights on this full-day tour – a great way for first-time visitors to get their bearings. You’ll visit Damlatas Cave, the Red Tower and the hilltop Alanya Castle, stroll along the lively harbour and have chance to take a swim at Cleopatra beach, before heading out of the city to enjoy lunch by the Dim Cay River.
We had a tour bus that had probably 75 Russian-speaking passengers, 15 German-speaking passengers, and 10 English-speaking passengers. There was one guide who split her time between English and German. The Russian guide simply seemed like she gave a lot more detail to the tourists than the English/German guide did.
Our guide didn't actually give us very much useful information at all. She mostly talked about the prices of various specific houses this house here is owned by some Scandanavian guy and is worth 150,000, which I'm not sure why I should care about. Many of the sights on this tour I also saw on another tour Alanya 3 Hour City Tour with Sunset Panaroma by Jeep, and the guides there gave much more in-depth information in less time.
There was one point where the guide took us to a garden and literally said something along the lines of here's the garden you can go take pictures if you like. There are plants in every country can you tell me why I'm supposed to care about these specific plants? Meanwhile the Russian tour guide seemed to be explaining something to her group for about 10 minutes. I don't speak Russian, but I would at least like to know what the point of the attraction is.
The only redeeming part of this tour is just that it is indeed a sightseeing tour of the highlights of Alanya. They'll tell you what to take pictures of, you'll just have to find out information about it some other way.
