    👍. Top. Book it right here. Super day, super guide, ok food (order fish, this is the best).


    It was a very relaxing excursion. Swimming in fresh cool waters of the lake, outstanding views and lovely people. The staff on the boat spoke fluent English. The food served was adequate and tasty. It was a peaceful and beautiful day. Well worth the money. Would recommend the tour to everyone!


    We booked Green Canyon boat trip online from excursionside. The communication with the agent was excellent before the tour. The agent Moustapha explained everything about the tour on whatsapp.
    A minibus picked us up at 08.50 from the security gate of our hotel. It was an air con comfortable vehicle. We stopped at some other hotels to collect other people.
    We drove up on the mountain roads to Green Canyon.
    We arrived at the pier. The stairs leading to the boat are a bit steep. I think they are not suitable for people having walking difficulties or disabled.
    The boat was very comfortable and there were sufficient number of seats for everyone and places to store the belongings.
    The scenery was absolutely stunning. We took tons of photos. There are guides on the boat and throughout the tour they give info about the interesting places. The staff on the boat was very friendly and attentive.
    After about 1 hour sailing we stopped at a jetty for 20 minutes swimming. I thought the lake water was very cold but it was ok. The staff on the boat provided fishing rods for the ones who want to try fishing here.
    After this stop, we got on the boat and arrived at a restaurant by the lake. There was an hour break here. The food was delicious and the service was fast and good. We got our drinks here and also on the boat and didn’t pay for them.
    After the lunch break, we got on the boat again and had an hour cruise on the lake. We saw Grand and Little Canyons. We had another swimming break and then returned to the place where the trip started. The bus brought us back to our hotel.
    Overall the excursion is well worth the money and Green Canyon is well worth the visit. I thoroughly recommend it.


    Green Canyon is a wonderful place of nature. The grand canyon, small canyon I saw all at this trip. Food was abundant and delicious waiters were also very caring. Water was cold but you feel fit and refreshed after you come out. I also tried fishing but couldnt get one mostly small fish in the lake. I can say that this boat trip was a very nice tour with lots of nice views to see.


    Seeing Green Canyon was like watching geographic channel but it was real. Absolutely stunning views of the canyon, lake, river and landscape. The trip was very well organized, the pick up time was precise and our guide was very friendly and informative. Waterside restaurant had a nice canyon view and the lunch was great. After lunch, we had time to take a dip or try fishing. The only negative thing about this trip can be the steps down the boat. It can be an issue for elderly I think. All in all, we spent a lovely day along the canyon. If you have chance to go on a trip in Side, Green Canyon is well worth it.


    A must do trip while in Side. Beautiful scenery and lots to see. We had a nice lunch by the lake and went out of the boat and swam, which was refreshing. Green Canyon is really green and beautiful. Well worth for money. Highly recommended.
