What people are saying about Southeastern Anatolia

The tour to Pamukkale was very nice. The view there is unique. The tour guide and the driver were very nice. The tour guide is very talkative. We made a stop at a hotel where we were allowed to swim and ate. If you want to swim in the Cleopatra pool you have to pay the entrance yourself. It was about 100 lira, otherwise everything else was included in the price. Be sure to take a hat and a towel with you.

Pamukkale Is beautiful and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave extensive information about the history of pamukkale and heirapolis. Our tour guide and driver was punctual, kind, nice, friendly and they made our day a memorable. They were so good and I also booked Ephesus tour with them. I will definitely recommend their tour.
