Overview

Looking for experiencing the magic of Pamukkale and the grandeur of Hierapolis on a comprehensive 1-day coach tour from Marmaris, including lunch and dinner.

Pamukkale, literally meaning “Cotton Castle” combines natural beauty and history in one place. It will be easy to understand why Turkish named like this when you see the steeply terraced hillside with its bright, white covering.

Being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and hosting many travertine, Pamukkale is also famous for wellness travelers. There you will see the thermal spring water laden with calcareous salt, plunging down the mountainside which has created this natural formation of stalactites, cataracts and basins. The thermal water has been used since the Roman period for its therapeutic powers.


Tour Details

Here, you will also have the opportunity to buy some snacks and tea/ coffee. On the way to Pamukkale, we will stop at Denizli, the closest city to Pamukkale, to make the long journey more easy and comfortable and to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view.

(lunch not included in price).arrival, We will amazed with the ruins of the ancient spa city of Hierapolis based on the top of this white castle and the dream-like white travertines. Many of these milk-white natural pools are deep enough for swimming, and because of the warm climate and thermally-heated water, there’s no chance of a chill, even if you visit in the off-peak season!

While wondering around this geological miracle, you will also learn more about the history and culture of this area and see amphitheater, city walls, bathhouses, necropolis and more.

According to legend, this artificially sculpted pool was a gift from Marc Anthony to Cleopatra and is rumoured to have swum here. Swimming there is optional and for an extra charge.

Our next journey is to natural hot thermal springs near Karahayit town named Kirmizi Su which translates to red water. You will be delighted to see these red travertines. You will have the option to swim there and enjoy bubbling from beneath the calcite rocks - very rich in calcium, magnesium and sulphurs, at about 56 degrees for an extra charge!

    We weren't sure if we want to book a full day tour with loacal as we haven't heard of them before. So, we tried half day fishing trip initially. It was a day full of fun. From the booking process to actual pick-up and the guide was all smooth.

    So, we booked pamukkale tour. The lady who answered our questions initially via email was very helpful. We needed to change the date and she made it happen in minutes. Thanks again Aysem.

    They picked us up early in the morning from our hotel in Marmaris and dropped us back to our hotel - great transfer service with funny driver Mehmet :)

    Coming to the travertines - The white beauty is really interesting. To be honest, the photos you may see online are from long time ago as the area is now under protection from human touch and erosion. The water at the pools are very little. However, many parts are still accessible and you may walk on them barefoot. It still worth a visit. This tour was highlight of our trip.
