We really enjoyed the tour, especially on site! It is wonderful. We had 3 hours on site in Pamukkale. This is enough to see most of it, but you could definitely stay there much longer. I would have liked to have had more time here and left out the stops on the way there and back in the stone and leather shop. These were only for sale. Toilet breaks would have been enough for me. Otherwise everything was pretty well organized and it was a nice tour.

Interesting but long-winded day.

The concept of a day in Pamukkale sounded great. Visit the Eighth Wonder of the World and enjoy the entire trip. In reality, we spent most of the day on the bus. The site itself was beautiful, the side activities on the other hand were a bit disappointing. Nobody cared to buy local leather products, so this could be skipped. Nevertheless, it was a nice day, full of new and unknown things to me. Recommended.

The path is a bit long but it is worth it to see this fabulous landscape of indescribable beauty. On the other hand for the road plan something to eat the food is horrible and expect unnecessary stops like to see a leather factory or a bazaar ... Overall we were satisfied with the execution

Cotton castle

Everything went well. A Guide did a greatjob. Only very long journey. But I recommend everyone to visit this amaizing place. Breakfast and lunch included to price.

this is a very well worth day trip, with breathtaking views.
