I would like to thank the excursionmania team for organizing this tour. We had a great day. Our guide Kadir did everything to make this tour perfect. It was a great chance to participate in the tour with such a guide. Lunch offers a great advantage as it is an open buffet. Only the drinks were a bit expensive
Kadir was the highlight of this tour. It was nice to visit Pamukkale, but it was a long journey for us. Food could have been better. Thank you for everything else.
Lunch and breakfast were good. We can say that Pamukkale was not as white as it looked in the photos and this disappointed us. Everything was almost perfect except the view of Pamukkale.
