I was in Istanbul with friends last month, and we all decided to join an adventure away from the city. None of us heard about Pamukkale before so arriving there was a total surprise for us. I mean, there are so many things to do and see there. Not to mention that every corner is picture-perfect. I can’t wait to post all these photos on my social media. We sawm at the antique pool and the water was so warm and nice. The travertines were stunning, a true wonder!!! I wish we had more days in Pamukkale, this tour was arranged to perfection, and we saw all main spots in the area. Excellent!!!
Family friendly, the kids loved it!!! Going around with toddlers is not easy at all, but this company was so organised, and the guide helped a lot! Pamukkale is like a dream, the landscapes, the sites, the aura of this place are just incredible. My favourite was the cotton castle. When booking I saw photos and imagined myself there, so it was like a dream visit for me. Our kids liked it and had fun. Hotel was superb and the meals we had were fresh and tasty. An unforgettable 2-day getaway in Pamukkale, with one of the best companies out there!
