Take an excursion to some of the most important archaeological sights of Anatolia on an 8-hour tour from Antalya. You will visit 3 of the 4 great cities of the Hellenistic period, and cool down at the magnificent Kurşunlu Waterfall on one of the tributaries of the lovely Aksu River. First you will visit Perge, an ancient Greek city founded in the southwest of Anatolia, approximately 9 miles east of modern day Antalya. During the Hellenistic period Perge was the capital of Pamphylia, and one of the 4 great cities that also included Aspendos, Side, and Sillion. It was one of the richest and most beautiful cities in the ancient world, most famous for its temple dedicated to Artemis, the beautiful goddess of wilderness. Home to the renowned Greek mathematician Apollonius of Perge, according to legend, it was also the birthplace of beer. For approximately 450 years, Perge was under the control of the Greeks until the Persians conquered it in 546 BC. 200 years later the armies of Alexander the Great entered Perge, ending the Persian reign. From that time, until the fall of the Roman Empire, Perge was under the patronage of the Romans. With its long history and its combination of 3 different cultures, the ruins are a delight to explore. Continue to Aspendos, approximately 25 miles east of Antalya. Another of the great cities of Pamphylia, Aspendos was located on an important trade route. Alexander the Great’s armies had the city in their sight, finally conquering it in 333 BC. Aspendos then fell under Roman patronage in 930 BC until the end of the Roman Empire. The theatre, built between 161-180 AD during the reign of Marcus Aurelıus, is considered one of the world’s best-preserved theaters from antiquity, and is an immensely popular tourist attraction. Continue to Side. The ancient Greek city’s spectacular natural harbor setting made it one of the most important cities in Pamphylia, and one of the most significant centers for trade, especially of olive oil and slaves. This also made it a target for many invaders and, after the Greeks, the Persians took Side under their wing, eventually giving in to the forces of Alexander the Great’s armies in 333 BC. By the 4th-Century Side had begun to decline. Following non-stop invasions and a succession of natural disasters, the city was completely abandoned in the 10th-Century, leaving behind ruins that are considered among the most notable in Asia Minor. Departing Side, you will make your way back to Antalya, about 45 miles west of the ruins. Arrive back in the Mediterranean sea resort for a hotel drop-off at the end of the tour.

Great tour which is worth the money! The tour guide was called Kadir, and was a very kind and funny guide, who was well spoken in English and new many interesting things about Turkey and its history. We visited multiple waterfalls, used the cable car to reach the mountains, visited a cool jewelry store, ate well (food was included in the price), went to see the old city town, and this all in one day! The bus had AC, we had plenty of time to wander around and take pictures, and the pick-up and drop-off from the hotel also went seemlessly. Thanks for the great trip!

Our guide (named Kadir) was excellent, telled us a lot about Turkiye, Antalya, the history of the city, religion and interesting facts. We never had time to be bored! The tour itself is well planned, we saw the city from above, the mountains, the waterfalls and the ancient part of the city too, all in a day trip. The lunch was authentic and super delicious! Bus had AC, the driver was friendly too. Thank you for the whole experience!

We were picked up at 10am and were back at the hotel around 6pm. Overall a nice day trip, also recommended with small children. Very good organization, our tour guide Kadir and the driver were very nice and personable. The waterfalls are a beautiful thing in themselves, but you felt like you were too short at the individual attractions. food was delicious. But all in all everything worked out.

Superb activity! Oussein our guide was great, he explained each crossing point in detail. The waterfalls were beautiful too. Recommended guide!!

It was a long day but very beautiful. Our host had a wealth of information about the sites and was very enthusiastic about his job.
