Full description

Explore the unique "Cotton Castles" of Pamukkale and go to the ruins of the ancient Greek-Roman city of Hierapolis on a full-day trip to one of Turkey’s most popular attractions. Start with a pickup in the early morning from your hotel in Side or Alanya and a drive to the Pamukkale Travertines.

Stop for a buffet lunch before entering Pamukkale. Explore the natural landscape of limpid pools, hot springs, and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by flowing water. Take a swim in the pools and experience the waters for yourself. If you want, enter the Cleopatra Pool for an extra fee.

Then, walk through the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis. Visit the amphitheater and take unforgettable photos. After you've spent enough time wandering the site, meet back at the bus in the parking area. On the return journey to Slide, stop for dinner before arriving at your hotel in the evening.

The tour was very well organised, lots of toilet stops and the provided food was good. Pumakkale itself was beautiful and definitely worth seeing, we took so many pictures. The only issue for us was that the guide didn't speak much English and we struggled to follow what was happening.
