I really wanted to visit Pamukkale and I convinced my husband to take this tour on our vacations. The landscape is like you are lost in a fairy tale, even better than the picture I saw online. We had a lovely tour guide with us, and he explain some important information about thermal springs and the history of Pamukkale. We even entered the thermal pool at an extra cost, and it was wonderful. We liked the Salda Lake, but Pamukkale was amazing, thank you for this unique experience!!!

1. I really wanted to visit Pamukkale and this combo tour to Salda Lake was a very good option. We booked online, and everything went well. Pamukkale is even better in reality. Everywhere I was looking, there was a breath-taking spot. The cotton castle is fantastic. It’s crazy to think that these balconies were made by nature. I couldn’t stop taking photos od the surroundings. Salda was also amazing, and looks like an exotic place. Super!!

Family of 3. We had few days in Side but wanted to keep on exploring other parts of the country. The tour sounded really interesting as both of the places were on our bucket list. All transfers were convenient and the car was comfortable. The lake is a feast for the eyes, it’s beautiful! Exactly as in the pictures. Pamukkale is also an amazing place to visit. Many things to see. Good thing is that we had a guide so we got many information. We didn’t swam into the thermal pool because of the baby but it’s a nice experience if you can do it.
