One of the main attractions of the city of Hierapolis is the museum, which houses historical artifacts from the city as well as from Attuda, Tripolis, Laodicea, and Colossae.

The Activity was a splendid pleasure from start when we were picked up by Devran (our tour guide) to the end till we were dropped off at the hotel. Devran made the road trip to the ancient sites very enjoyable with a lot of history telling. It was exciting to learn about the History and live those moments when we visited the sites. The car was very comfortable. We had the lunch and full tickets prepared to us. Entering the sites was a breeze without waiting lines. The stops we made in the middle of the tour, The factories were also very enjoyable. I can’t say there was anything I would like to change about this tour, it was just perfect. Thank you Devran.

Barb was great! He gave comprehensive information about Turkey and Selcuk! He took us to have Turkish coffee, authentic lunch and side trips included a leather and pottery store. Ephesus tour was excellent!

Our guide Yesim was wonderful and the driver was excellent. We saw everything we hoped for and the “less walking” tour made it possible for my elderly parents. Great all around!

Zeynep was a great guide. She gave us a lot of really good information and ensured that we had a fun and relaxing tour.

Nazim was an excellent guide who provided lots of information and also took great photos. Highly recommend
