Private Pamukkale Tour: From the Turkish word meaning cotton castle, Pamukkale is a spectacular, natural beauty. On this private tour prepare yourself for a carefree day, taking in all the marvelous surroundings, leaving the passionate and knowledgeable tour guide in charge.
Pammukale is a series of mountainside terraces where natural springs have solidified into snow white stalactites and cliffs. The effect is absurdly exquisite- it almost looks like a winter wonderland of pools in various little tiers. The Romans were the first to realise its potential healing powers and established a health spa there. In modern day, we would like you to experience the same healing powers the Romans found by inviting you to join us and bathe in the main thermal pool and feel revitalized.
Start the day with a delicious, freshly prepared buffet breakfast in Antalya. Then the tour leads you to Korkutelli where there will be a short break to regain energy for the exciting day ahead. At midday there is a scheduled photo break to capture the stunning panoramic views, to create memories you can keep. After, you will be given leisure time to explore Pamukkale and the Ancient City Hierapolis. Up the hill, at Hierapolis, there is a well-preserved Roman theatre and ancient thermal baths, which have been restored and converted into an archaeological museum. Other significant sites include the Temple of Apollo, the Necropolis and the Nymphaeum and the fourth century basilica. On the way back to the hotel, we will stop for a delightful dinner.
This makes for a wonderful day, full of culture and history, one which you must do should you wish to engage with the country’s history.
Meeting point: Pick up from hotel between 6.30am and 7am.
