Full description
Your full day excursion begins in the early morning when you’re picked up at your Antalya hotel and begin the drive to Pamukkale. After a lunch break you’ll visit the cascading snow-white terraced cliffs of this mysterious Cotton Palace. The calcite-laden waters that had created this unreal landscape come from springs located in a 200-meter high cliff that overlooks the plain. Marvel at the mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and the series of terraced basins created by these waters. At the end of the 2nd century B.C. the kings of Pergamon established the thermal spa of Hierapolis. The ruins of the baths, temples and other Greek monuments can be seen at the site. The temples were significant trade centers for ancient Hierapolis. See the Roman theater, the Apollo temple, Roman baths, fountains and the agora. After the tour, have a chance to swim in thermal pools. An additional option is to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool, for an extra fee.

I had been looking forward to this tour for a long time and it did not disappoint. Pickup and drop off were easy and without any problems. The tour guide gave lots of information (in clear and concise English) and then gave us several hours to explore the site on our own (which I really appreciated). He was available in a set location for us to ask additional questions. The amount of time we had to explore was just right...usually, I feel rushed by tours but this was prefect. The meal was a buffet style meal (with drinks not included). The food was decent and there were even a few selections for dessert.

Long road traveled, very good English speaking guide, we traveled the site with very good explanations. The site is beautiful, magnificent. the pools were dry, so it kills the beauty of the thing a bit, but it's still beautiful to see. The historical site is also very beautiful to see, the museum too. on the other hand, we did not swim in the Cleopatra pool because the water looked dirty. otherwise it's still nice

well organized! Pickup on Antalya's main road if your hotel is not facing there. Air-conditioned and comfortable mini-coach, experienced driver. 3 and a half hours with several stops. Once we arrived the guide followed us and then let us free for a couple of hours. The buffet lunch at 11: 30/12: 00 was really good (against all expectations), even if a little too early according to my habits. The only negative note was a girl who "talked" (screamed) for the entire outward journey and part of the return. I hope that anyone who decides to do this will find more respectful and polite travel companions. Thanks for the great experience
