An exhausting but really worthwhile trip

Since Pamukkale is very far away from Side you should be aware that it starts early and you are back in the hotel late at night. Immediately after booking, the agency Seven Tours announced the pick-up time, very nice contact. Pickup took place right on time at the hotel. There was a swimming break at Salda Lake. The buffet lunch was available for 7 euros. Arrival in Pamukkale around 1 p.m. Entry is 60TRY. In contrast to otherwise no EUR will be accepted. Stay in Pamukkale approx. 3.5 hours. Despite the many tourists, it is absolutely worth seeing and the crowds are well distributed over the extensive grounds. The procedure was as described, unless the hot springs of Karahayit were not visited (probably would not have timed). On a positive note, there should be no sales event on this trip. A perfect day. For the next day, however, you shouldn't plan so much and rather spend a quiet day on the beach.

Most worthwhile trip from Kusadasi - highly recommended

We were well pleased that we booked this taxi tour to fit in with the hours our cruise ship was in Kusadasi. Denis was an excellent tour guide and we appreciated all the information he was able to give to us as we drove to Pamukkale (Hierapolis) and also Laodicea. The hot springs are an amazing sight and the ruins of both Hierapolis and Laodicea are quite incredible. It was the highlight of our trip to Turkey! It was great to see something of the Turkish landscape other than what was close to the cruise ports. The van was very comfortable for our adult family of four and we appreciated the bottled water provided.

This is a place, that MUST be seen and worth every minute there!

Well done whole day trip. Maybe there should be some more time in Pamukkale so you can visit the ancient city as well. The hotel where we had lunch was fine and the spring with muddy water was so much fun to visit. The guide was well informed and told us a lot of information.

What an amazing day out

Everything went fine! The pick up was on time. We been a small group of 8 and 1 toddler in a small bus. On the site we had enough time to explore everything we wanted to see. High recommend
