Full description

Discover the stunning region of Pamukkale and its hot springs on a day trip from Selcuk, Kusadasi, or Izmir. Begin by meeting your driver/guide at the reception of your hotel in the morning and a transfer to Pamukkale.

Explore the ancient city of Hierapolis, built on solid limestone layers formed by mineral-rich waters that flowed for millennia over a raised level plateau. See the most significant sites of the sacred city including the Theatre, the Temple of Apollo, and the Necropolis.

Admire the Necropolis (Cemetery) of Hierapolis, one of the largest ancient burial sites in Anatolia. See a Roman bath, the Gate of Domitian, the main street of the ancient city, and the Byzantium Gate.

Walk to the natural warm water terraces, formed by running warm water rich in calcium and temperatures of 35 Celsius all year-round. Get the chance to see the gleaming white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. 

Enjoy optional free time to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool before ending the tour with a transfer back to your hotel. And during the tour you'll have the chance to have a look at the Turkish traditional handcrafts.

Very good except for the organization to visit the ancient city. It would be better to include in advance the price for the golf cart. So we would have not lost 15 minutes when we arrived. As far as the rest Guray was very knowledge about the history and he was a good guide.

We were fetched on time at our hotel. Mehareem met us and explained the process. We fetched some people along the way from Kusadasi and more when we got to Pamukkale. The ride was very pleasant. Mehareem gave us insights into the area, the Turkish culture as we went by each little town. Heiropolis was incredible. The fact and history was absolutely mesmerizing. Pamukkale was breathtaking,an absolute must do in one's lifetime. Highlight for me was we got to swim in Cleopatra's pools in the middle of winter.

Pamukkale is definitely one of the must visit places in Turkey & I am glad I booked this tour with GYG. Mehmet our guide was so amazing, he shared a lot of fascinating facts. Hierapolis is definitely a place you want to visit with a guide to understand the rich history of the place. Once you reach Pamukkale, you get to enjoy the naturally occurring thermal springs, you can also swim in the Cleopatra's pool. Everything was up-to-mark, Crowded House Tours was a great provider.
