Tour started at 7am. Patient and lovely tour guide. Tour included a stop at Lake Salda which we were not expecting but greatly appreciated as it was magnificent. Before reaching Pamukkale we stopped at a glass tour and then had lunch with a balcony view of pamukkale. Lunch was tasty and adequately filling with provision to pray when asked. Then we embarked on Pamukkale for which we had two hours free time. The walk up was a little difficult having to be barefoot and the distance, particularly ensuring we kept up with our guide (so worth ensuring you are able to call and receive calls abroad) but again amazing views. Make sure to wear sun protection as it gets very hot. Tour included swimming tickets in thermal springs which was a great experience-felt like a nice warm hug. We arrived back at our hotel at around 8pm. Overall no complaints ! A great day!

I ended up going alone (female) on this tour and it felt completely comfortable and safe the whole time! The team really watches the safety and handles large amounts of people in VERY efficient and fast way. The best part is how many things you get to do in one day but it doesnt require you to be triathlon athlete- its very physically doable ❤️ 100% recommend if you like nature! The team itself also is great, positive and entertaining P.s. if you get Ali as your guide he will make you sing but i promise you its fun

Jacob was an amazing guide with an ample amount of knowledge! The whole day was packed with information, sightseeing and the stopover for lunch. Highly recommend this activity for anyone that wants to enjoy ancient cities

Pick up directly at the hotel, bus transfer great, equipment good, language and explanations very good, all in all very funny and action

Sehr schönes Erlebnis und vorallem sehr nette und lustige Mitarbeiter. Jedem der sowas erleben möchte empfehle ich das Rafting
