Board a spacious and comfortable outside your hotel and relax on the drive to Perge, an impressive archaeological site containing a wealth of ancient ruins that date back to the Roman period.

Imagine the past as you see a gigantic amphitheater, stadium, Roman gates, city walls, and Roman baths. Walk through the 500-meter-long main street with numerous columns, fountains, and an acropolis dating back to the Bronze Age.  

Continue on to Aspendos, situated on the banks of the Köprüçay River. Once one of the most important cities in Pamphylia, Aspendos is now a very popular tourist sight famous for its excellently-preserved Roman amphitheater built in 155 AD. 

Walk up the amphitheater's tiered steps and admire the beauty of its galleries, which are still in use today. Stop to refill with a delicious lunch before making your way to the ruins of Side, which span the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine eras. 

Admire its fountains, city walls, agora, amphitheater, and marble columns. Take in stunning views over the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea at the the temple of Apollo.  

On the way back to Antalya, enjoy a relaxing soak after a long day of exploring in the Kursunlu Waterfalls. Enjoy the green environment, fresh air, pine scent, cool atmosphere, and spectacular falls.

Thanks to the great guide and the information, it is definitely an added value compared to an independent visit. It would have been much less interesting without the background information. It was also great that we could be picked up at the hotel in Belek. This was only possible via the app, on the website it is limited to Antalya! Lunch was a relatively small portion but tasted good.

A day very well spent, despite the hot, humid n windy weather. The pick up was on time, the bus clean and a small group of ~14 people. It was tiring..over 9 hours and the bus AC was not very effective at the back. However, Our guide Ismail was very good, and he also helped with the vegetarian food. Would recommend this tour
