What people are saying about Pamukkale

The overall trip was excellent. But had problem in going on the day when it was actually planned. Our flight tickets were not booked and the flight got booked. I was neither informed to provide my passport details at the time of booking nor informed later. When I called to local agent hd informed me that since I had not provided the relevant details the trip has to be cancelled/postponed. So I had to go the next day. While returning back the flight to Istanbul is very late and had to wait for 4 hrs at the Airport. The place and the guide were excellent.

Excellent ... a beautiful place. Fact: there are few Spanish-speaking guides, so I suggest making reservations in advance. Our excellent guide attentive and with a brief history class intrigued us and in Greek and Roman times to see the theater ... later Cleopatra's pool ... to end with The "cotton castle" simply WONDERFUL

It was truly the best part of my vacation. The arrangement was timely, the guide Ali was wonderful, gave us all the interesting facts regarding turkey and the area. He was Well versed in history to give the details of Hierapolis. Thank you so much this wonderful experience. It was worth it and it was my best day in turkey :)

Exceptional place

I liked the tour, the punctuality in the collection, the punctual flights and although the guide lacked a bit to refine the Spanish it was understood. I recommend the tour because you enjoy it a lot and do not stop bathing in the hot springs of Cleopatra is a luxury

It was a unique and wonderful experience. Perfectly organized, professional drivers, couldn't be better. Again and again
