Oh wow! I just came back to my hotel and I’m still in awe! Pamukkale has so many things to see, and I was extremely happy to visit them. Of course the travertines were out of this world!! The landscape is superb, and exceeded my expectation. During the day we visited an ancient thermal pool. Entrance was extra, but it was worthy! Once I entered the water, I felt relaxed. Oh wow! Our tour to the ancient city was very interesting. Our guide was amazing, and told us many interesting things. I recommend this tour to everyone. It gives you the best of Pamukkale.
My friends and I had in mind to visit Pamukkale. I started searching online and the name of a tour guide came up from other reviews. By the time I reached him I knew that it was going to be an epic experience. He offered all the details I wanted to know and arranged our transfers. He was really friendly, not to mention that he was always on time (which kind of helps credibility a lot!). The trip from Antalya to Pamukkale was exceptional. Pamukkale is dreamy and full of beauty. We all enjoyed our trip there and had great time. Thank you!
Exceptional excursion! Perfect for a full-day trip away from Antalya. You get to know so many new things, and if you enjoy history like I do, you will LOVE IT!! Ok so, pick up and road trip was good, no problems at all. There was a very polite and friendly guide with us, explaining things and answering our questions. Pamukkale is pure perfection. Thermal springs, perfect sceneries, ancient ruins. I had everything I needed. Just don’t forget to take a swimsuit with you, maybe you’ll want to enter the ancient pool. Remember my words and try it!
