At first I thought the road trip is gonna be long but then I just realized that it was totally worthy. No doubt as to why Pamukkale attracts so many people. The sites are just impressive and we even get to swim into the thermal pool. The water was really warm and perfect if you have some back pains like me! The nearby museum has some interesting things, we enjoyed our time there. Salda Lake is such a stunner! It really looks like you are not in Turkey, such an exotic and spectacular place. The service and the whole organization was just perfect, my review comes with 5 starts!
We joined as a family with 3 kids. You know how things work when you have kids, we wanted everything to be on time. Even lunch and everything else. The guys are true professionals and helped us a lot with the kids. I have to thank our tour guide for being so polite and for explaining everything in simple words. For us the main highlight of the tour was Salda Lake. I can’t even compare it with anything else. It was just beautiful. Pamukkale is also amazing with lots of things to do. For the kids entrance to museum was free.
I was so amazed with my Pamukkale day trip. The whole trip is worth for a day if you have a short holiday in Antalya like me but ı would love to spend 1 more day in Pamukkale. I highly recommend Excursion Mania for all their services in Antalya.
