Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

1. Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

The rock formations of Pamukkale (literally, "Cotton Castle") are a series of white terraces saturated with dissolved calcium bicarbonate, bubbling up from the feet of the mountains beyond. As the water flows over the edge of the plateau and cools, carbon dioxide is given off and calcium carbonate precipitates as hard chalk, or travertine. The spring emerges in the middle of the ancient resort city of Hierapolis (the ruins themselves are worthy of a stop as well). Sadly, the travertine that makes up the Pamukkale is gradually turning from white to yellow, and is even thought to be drying up. Thirsty hotels are blamed by the government, which has demolished many of them. This is good for the Pamukkale, but it makes finding a hotel increasingly difficult. Most stay in Pamukkale Koyu. The Hierapolis archaeological site lies west of Pamukkale Koyu. Its main features include a temple of Apollo and the adjacent Plutonium, a cavern emitting a deadly sulphur and carbon dioxide gas. East of here is a restored Roman ampitheatre, dating from the second century AD. Most of the stage buildings and their elaborate reliefs remain intact. An interesting part of the city is the colonnaded street, once extending almost 1km to a series of monumental portals. Today, only the most northerly, a triple arch flanked by towers and dedicated to the Emperor Domitian in 84 AD, still stands. Just south of the arch is the elaborate tomb of Flavius Zeuxis. This is only the first of more than a thousand tombs that constitute the full necropolis, the largest in Asia Minor.

From Kusadasi: Ephesus and Pamukkale 2 Day Private Tour

2. From Kusadasi: Ephesus and Pamukkale 2 Day Private Tour

This 2-day tour will take you to 2 ancient cities and beautiful natural sites. Here's what you'll do across both days. First Day: Ephesus Meet your guide and drive to Ephesus, one of the most well-preserved Greco-Roman ancient cities in the world. You'll see the amphitheater, ancient temples, Roman baths, agora, and even an ancient library. The area also holds religious significance, serving as a pilgrimage center for Christians. After touring the ancient city, you'll enjoy a local lunch. Then, see local artisans at work on handmade carpets and rug art.  Second Day: Pamukkale Meet your guide and take a 3-hour drive (with a break) to the Pamukkale area. When you arrive, you'll enjoy a local lunch. Then, visit the ancient city and its white terraces to explore for a few hours. The travertine terraces at Pamukkale are one of the most spectacular natural wonders, with various mineral springs set along a vast white cliffside. Walk along the Hierapolis ancient city ruins, see the huge necropolis, and feel the warmth of the natural spring as you go barefoot on the Travertens. If you want, you can also swim in the ancient pool (not included). The pool is naturally heated from the hot springs and spotted with underwater fragments of ancient marble columns. Possibly associated with the Temple of Apollo, the pool provides today's visitors a rare opportunity to swim with antiquities!

What people are saying about Denizli Province

It was an amazing 2-day tour in two places. I enjoyed it a lot. I was taken cared of from picking me up from the airport to my hotel after the tour then back to the airport. It was pretty awesome and I felt comfortable as a solo traveler. The local tour guide, Alex was very informative and provided me with every single details of every places we visited. I was alone on the first day of the tour to Ephesus and the tour guide had given me ample time to enjoy every places we visited. I would surely recommend this tour to all the travelers with limited time but would like to see two places at the same time. If you take this tour, choose Alex as a tour guide! He is well-spoken, spoke English well and very informative knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour

Unforgettable

Excellent guide, Muhmad made the trip worthwhile, I think the operator mistrusts when writing an email that the return was not included when it was, Pumakkele as a geological place is great, its valley is beautiful, how attraction for old people It is dangerous, floor with slippery seaweed and if you risk wearing a shoe that you want to wet because being barefoot is painful, Hieropolis is what is worth walking

We were picked up at the hotel on time. Very careful bus driver, the trip was great, no music the entire trip, very relaxing! A great private tour guide (we were the only two guests that day and still the tour was carried out very professionally) who spoke English very well and was able to answer all our questions. A very nice experience that we can definitely recommend.

It was one of my best trips during my stay in Turkey. The organization was excellent. I was picked up at the arranged time from my hotel. I was very lucky with professional guides John and Nizam, who were both friendly and helpful.

Our guide Meral was very informative abd fruendly. the tour was on time and was fun and cozy. we were not in a hurry but we were also able to see everything we wanted to see. would highly recommend it.
