  • Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

    9. Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

    The rock formations of Pamukkale (literally, "Cotton Castle") are a series of white terraces saturated with dissolved calcium bicarbonate, bubbling up from the feet of the mountains beyond. As the water flows over the edge of the plateau and cools, carbon dioxide is given off and calcium carbonate precipitates as hard chalk, or travertine. The spring emerges in the middle of the ancient resort city of Hierapolis (the ruins themselves are worthy of a stop as well). Sadly, the travertine that makes up the Pamukkale is gradually turning from white to yellow, and is even thought to be drying up. Thirsty hotels are blamed by the government, which has demolished many of them. This is good for the Pamukkale, but it makes finding a hotel increasingly difficult. Most stay in Pamukkale Koyu. The Hierapolis archaeological site lies west of Pamukkale Koyu. Its main features include a temple of Apo...

    It was one of my best trips during my stay in Turkey. The organization was excellent. I was picked up at the arranged time from my hotel. I was very lucky with professional guides John and Nizam, who were both friendly and helpful.

The tour with the horses was a very nice experience. Pick-up and return went perfectly. The tour includes a forest tour, spray insect spray on it beforehand. The view is gorgeous. The time of 1.5 hours was enough.

Everything was great! I got picked up and transferred from my residence to the airport with no problems. Everything went very smoothly! I would book again with this company!

Nice riding and friendly people on the horse range :)

It was amazing good people and an amazing experience
