The tour in itself was awesome. An Christian Pilgrim should have this on their to do list. This is an under valued experience. This turned into a private tour, which I was told it was not going to be. The Thermal Hotel and the Resort Hotel were excellent accommodations. I wanted an option to stay in a cheaper hotel the first two nights. The business hotel was the low light of the tour.
Our guide was amazing. He explained the complete historical event that took place. Apart from the 6 n half hour long return journey from Kusadasi to Pamukkale the tour was very good. A day prior to the tour the company wanted to cancel n postpone the tour because of less turnout we requested them not to cancel and they obliged. Please check with the organizers before hand.
It was a great day! Our tour guide, Fatima was super knowledgable, personable, and a joy to tour with. She took our group to a great authentic Turkish restaurant. We asked her to help us make arrangements to get back to airport the next day & without hesitation said sure! After the tour that day, it was more than a tour, we made a friend!
1. Excellent communication beforehand. 2. New modern and comfortable bus. 3. Very knowledgeable and experienced tour guide. Could speak English very well, as well as Spanish, and w/ a 5-year degree in this discipline. 4. Very economical, at less than half the price compared to the same tour offered through the cruise company.
We ended up on the full day jeep tour because there were not enough people for the boat tour. We still had a great time, learned some things, and the guides were great. The water fights were fun and kept us cool. The monastery was amazing to see.
