Full description
Your full day excursion begins in the early morning when you’re picked up at your Antalya hotel and begin the drive to Pamukkale. After a lunch break you’ll visit the cascading snow-white terraced cliffs of this mysterious Cotton Palace.

The calcite-laden waters that had created this unreal landscape come from springs located in a 200-meter high cliff that overlooks the plain. Marvel at the mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and the series of terraced basins created by these waters.

At the end of the 2nd century B.C. the kings of Pergamon established the thermal spa of Hierapolis. The ruins of the baths, temples and other Greek monuments can be seen at the site. The temples were significant trade centers for ancient Hierapolis.

See the Roman theater, the Apollo temple, Roman baths, fountains and the agora. After the tour, have a chance to swim in thermal pools. An additional option is to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool, for an extra fee.

Pamukkale is very beautiful. It is even nicer in summer. The tour was nice. It only took a very long time from Lara (Antalya) until we were in Pamukkale. We were picked up from our hotel at 7 a.m. we were in Pamukkale at 11am. Before we went in there was lunch in a restaurant. Then we had 3 hours in total for Pamukkale. that's enough. but the guide only told us when and where to meet. Then we drove back to the hotel. We were there at 8:30 p.m. We took part in a photo shoot with a parrot. the photographer took at least 30 pictures. we thought you could get all the pictures.

This is a long drive away so prepare yourself for that. Once there, it is quote enjoyable. Cleopatra's pool is extra-chargeable n the normal pools are quite adequate at givong u a high. The walk across the ruins is magical. Our trip started late and the guide still made sure we went to the shopping stopover, which left us rushing around Pamukkale and that should just not be allowed to happen.

Friendly guide, because comfortable air conditioned, great for taking, you could charge your top phone! A big negative for the really bad lunch it looked like leftover canteen to review! Otherwise overall very good for the excursion but not enough explanation and description of the tourist site. Otherwise I keep a very good experience!
