I enjoyed the tour from start to finish. The tour guide was very nice . And the drivers were very nice and IM so happy you were able to arrange a pickup for me although I was the only person from Izmir I really appreciate it as going to Pamukkale was on the top of my list when coming to Izmir.

Me and my friend, we went to Pamukkale (Hierapolis and Calcium Terraces) tour. It was very nice trip. Only thing was the way from Kusadasi to Pamukkale long drive.

After hotel pick up 2,5 hour driving we arrived to Pamukkale to the Ancient city of Hieraporis with the ruins of the Hierapolis, Calcium Terraces and then we had time to swim in thermal water swimming pool in Pamukkale. It was excellent discovery of the Pamukkale district.

I went this tour from Kusadasi, It started early in the morning. After 2,5 hour driving we arrived to Pamukkale district of Denizli. Upon arrival we started to do tour from the Ancient city of Hieraporis with Necropolis and then enter to the city and discover the Roman Baths, Domitian Gate, Latrina, Oil Factory, Frontinus Street, Agora, Byzantium Gate, Triton Fountain, Cathedral, Apollon Temple, Plutonium, Theater and Antique Pool and the calcium terraces and swimming pool of thermal water in Pamukkale. We had lunch and then continue to Red terraces and then return to Kusadasi. It was excellent discovery of the Pamukkale district.

Pamukkale is wonderful with its natural sites of calcium terrace and mineral water swimming pool.

If I knew that out of a 13.5 hour day, I would only be spending 2.5 hours at Pamukkale then I would never have done this tour. The timings need to be set out clearly and they are not and they are actually incorrect on the website. The pick-up from Izmir was 7am not 7.30am and even then there was waiting around for an hour as the bus did not depart Selcuk until 9am. The drop back to Izmir was 8.30pm not 7pm. The tour guide was not informative and very average and I would have got much more out of the visit if I had extra time to look around on my own as I didn't learn anything meaningful from the guide (others on the tour agree on this and also on the lack of clarity of timings). My advice - stay in Pamukkale and do it yourself without a guide and save lots of money. Or get a local bus or drive from Selcuk. Do not entertain the idea of doing this tour from Izmir or Kusadasi - you will spend all day on a bus and very little time at the site. Zero value for money.

we were staying in kushadasi so trying to figure out to see the calcium terraces. we found travel bazaar online and booked the day tour. it was a bit long way but when we got there and put our foot in the thermal water we forgot our exhaustion. the guide explained everything about the ancient city and the theater that we visited. Overall everything was good but I wish we would do a private tour instead of group coz we need to wait for others (elderly ones) to follow us up.
