Reviews About Pamukkale Tour from Bodrum
lt is a one-day eventful excursion, during which we did not have a single minute to get bored 🙂 The road is long enough, so we did not take risks and buy this excursion from just anyone, we decided to trust excursion market again, because on our last visit we bought a jeep from them -safari. And again they did not lose. I liked that the bus arrived on the appointed day absolutely without delay. We left the hotel very early, at 6 am. After a couple of hours of travel (if I’m not mistaken, of course) we stopped for breakfast, for which we paid separately. We arrived in Pamukkale around 9 o’clock in the morning, when it was already daybreak. The views even at the entrance to the city are simply mesmerizing. Our guide was an English speaking girl, just in love with her job. She talked about everything in a very interesting way. We visited not only Pamukkale, but also the ancient city of Hierapolis, whose amphitheater simply amazes the imagination with its size and degree of preservation. I do not think that this is a remake, it is clear that the Turks are simply maintaining its condition, but in no way are they rebuilding it anew, as I read somewhere. The travertines themselves are worth a separate description. We wandered there for a long time and photographed everything. They did not enter Cleopatra’s pool, it was hot. On the way back we were fed a tolerable lunch and we drove back to Bodrum. Thank you, we recommend everyone to visit there.
It is better to come here early in the morning. It takes about three hours to drive from Bodrum, so we can say we arrived at the opening. It’s just that the later you arrive, the more people there are, and if this does not interfere with viewing Hierapolis and walking about travertines, then visiting Cleopatra’s pool becomes already difficult. But we got here and there, managed to visit everything. Nice tour, I recommend.
I liked the trip. We thought that it would be as usual – delays, overlaps, one misunderstood, the other did not say so … Well, you know. But this travel agency does not work at all like others. Very well organized, thank you guys. I will not write about the sights, you can read about it in Google :)) But I would like to note the work of our guide. We had a young man who moved to Turkey a few years ago and got the profession of a guide here. Thank you for a wonderful excursion.
We flew to Turkey for the sake of Pamukkale. And we did not regret it. So many stories, revised pictures – only a tenth of the miracle that we saw with our own eyes! White slope, hot sun and warm water – I would sit there for days. Thank you for helping to make our trip unforgettable – from an organizational point of view – everything is great. We will recommend you to our friends
We were in Pamukkale in early August – it was a rather hot trip. I liked our guide very much – it is immediately clear that the person is simply in love with Turkey. We learned a lot about the crafts and geography of Turkey. The big discovery was Pamukkale itself – it seemed that the terraces were simply endless. Everyone decided to visit Cleopatra’s pool unconditionally especially for ladies because of rejuvenation.We all really enjoyed it.
We love history very much. My wife and I chose several excursions for themselves: Pamukkale, Ephesus and a sightseeing trip. The first was Pamukkale. I was very impressed with how responsibly the Turks approach the issue of preserving cultural heritage. The antique amphitheater is a direct confirmation of this. It was possible to swim in Cleopatra’s basin with a stretch – it turned out to be shallow, and columns and ruins from past earthquakes in these parts are scattered along the bottom. We also want to acknowledge the work of the company and the guide. It is immediately evident that they take their business seriously. Good luck and thank you very much for the tour.
