Full description
Board an early morning flight from Istanbul to Pamukkale, where this day tour begins. Pamukkale, which means cotton castle, comprises a series of limestone terraces formed by the action of the hot springs that create a waterfall. The water contains a high concentration of carbonic acid and lime, and flows downhill to form stalactites, waterfalls and basins. Nearby are the ruins of Hierapolis, where the Roman baths were converted into a church during the Byzantine period. See the Roman theater and well-preserved ancient thermal baths. Bathe in the waters and visit the pool of Cleopatra (admission not included). After the tour, board a flight to return to Istanbul.

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 :)

We were very well looked after by our guide Husseim who was very fluent in Spanish and very knowledgeable. Good balance of social and cultural chat. Together with the driver they were very friendly and polite. The only thing we do not recommend is shopping in Pamukkale where he took us since we find the same much cheaper items in Istanbul. The experience of Pammukkale and Hierapolis is very beautiful - very comfortable shoes are recommended, preferably non-slip shoes. A very nice tour. Regards, Jacky and Oscar

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
