  • Pamukkale Small Group Tour from Kusadasi

    2. Pamukkale Small Group Tour from Kusadasi

    After pickups from Kusadasi hotels or the port, you will drive you to Pamukkale. Along the way, feast your eyes on the beautiful Turkish Villages. After a 2-hour drive, you will arrive at Pamukkale, located in the province of Denizli. This natural wonder is comprised of terraces and travertine formed by hot springs and streams depositing carbonate minerals. Pamukkale has gained eminence for its waters which are believed to have curative powers and been used as a thermal bath for centuries. Located near to Pamukkale, Hierapolis was established in 200 BC by Eumenes II in dedication to the Amazon Queen Hiera. The city which fell under the rule of the Turks in the 9th century still preserves its value and significance, welcoming thousands of visitors to its ancient monuments and natural wonders every year, Pamukkale is waiting to welcome you as well.

    Due to health problems we were not able to attend the tour on the originally agreed day, but the organizer (Mr Mustafa) allowed us to postpone it for one day. The pick up time from our hotel was prompt. The guide did not speak good English but was very friendly and helpful. Upon arrival in Pamukkale we had a brief tour of the area, followed by 2.5 hours of free time to see travertines and Hierapolis or swim in the Cleopatra Pool. Before returning to Kusadasi, we stopped for lunch and visited an onix factory.

Görkan was a good guide, knowledgeable, and we had plenty of time to look around Pamukkale and the ancient city. The bus trip was long but there's not much the tour can do about that. We stopped at a tourist trap shop as expected (an onyx shop) however the staff were not overly pushy which was a nice change. The lunch was average but for the price I didn't expect much else.

Fantastic tour

I had a great time. Communication as to exactly what to do & expect could have been better/clearer, but guides were great, people were helpful and tour itself was fantastic.

Adam was a fantastic tour guide which made our experience unforgettable! hierapolis and pumakkale is a must see, the history is amazing!
