Top experience, full of sightseeing. I really enjoyed my time. Pamukkale is an amazing place to explore, it was my first time there and I wish I had more days there. Our guide made everything easy for the group. The ancient city was absolutely phenomenal. Thermal springs also. I even swam in the antique pool, the water was so warm. There were many thermal pools around and people visit often to enjoy. Few stops at local places, I bought nice souvenirs and saw their incredible production. Food was good, everything fresh and tasty.
If you have some time do it, it’s interesting, informative, you get to visit an amazing place. Road trip was kind of long but still comfortable. Guide was perfect we had fun in the bus with some jokes. We tour around Pamukkale and visit many interesting sites. Travertines were beautiful, just breath-taking. We also went to tour Hierapolis. The place holds a long history and I wasn’t aware. Thank god we had a guide and he explained everything. The hotel was very good. Comfortable beds and super clean. I recommend this tour, everything was so good about it.
