Full description

Discover the stunning region of Pamukkale and its hot springs on a day trip from Selcuk, Kusadasi, or Izmir. Begin by meeting your driver/guide at the reception of your hotel in the morning and a transfer to Pamukkale.

Explore the ancient city of Hierapolis, built on solid limestone layers formed by mineral-rich waters that flowed for millennia over a raised level plateau. See the most significant sites of the sacred city including the Theatre, the Temple of Apollo, and the Necropolis.

Admire the Necropolis (Cemetery) of Hierapolis, one of the largest ancient burial sites in Anatolia. See a Roman bath, the Gate of Domitian, the main street of the ancient city, and the Byzantium Gate.

Walk to the natural warm water terraces, formed by running warm water rich in calcium and temperatures of 35 Celsius all year-round. Get the chance to see the gleaming white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. 

Enjoy optional free time to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool before ending the tour with a transfer back to your hotel. And during the tour you'll have the chance to have a look at the Turkish traditional handcrafts.

Pamukkale is definitely one of the must visit places in Turkey & I am glad I booked this tour with GYG. Mehmet our guide was so amazing, he shared a lot of fascinating facts. Hierapolis is definitely a place you want to visit with a guide to understand the rich history of the place. Once you reach Pamukkale, you get to enjoy the naturally occurring thermal springs, you can also swim in the Cleopatra's pool. Everything was up-to-mark, Crowded House Tours was a great provider.

The journey was made with a very comfortable bus and our guide was Tijen Oral, a wonderful woman who helped me a lot with some travel doubts I had following this tour, a truly fantastic person. Pamukkale itself is a surreal landscape that feels like something out of a dream and the guide left us free to enjoy the place as we wished within the allotted time. Despite having several people there, it is possible to also enter in some of the pools, so it's good to bring a bathing suit and be ready to get wet. Also the ruins of the city of Hierapolis are in the same place and are very interesting to visit. I highly recommend this tour, at the point of becoming something almost mandatory for anyone visiting Türkiye.

After 2 nights in Istanbul, as I was thinking of traveling south, I thought about learning more about the Galipoli Campaign in the Galipoli Peninsula. Having a guide to explain about the different sites and the Campaign really helps! I was really glad to have booked this tour with the amazing and friendly guide. After the tour, I did not travel back to Istanbul with the rest of the group but instead took a ferry to Çanakkale to continue the rest of my travels in Turkey. For anyone who would like to explore this option.
