10 reviews for Pamukkale Day Tour from Istanbul
  1. Margaret

    Amazing daily trip to Pamukkale from Istanbul. I was so amazed by my Pamukkale day trip. The whole trip is worth a day if you have a short vacation time like me, but staying one or more nights is highly recommended. There are thermal hotels in the town. Toursce tour company was well organized especially Tuna who helped me out before-during-after the tour. He ensures that we perfectly arrived in Pamukkale town and back to the hotel in Istanbul. Our local tour guide and bus driver always ensure our safety. Toursce is highly recommended and looks for Tuna.

    Outstanding Pamukkale day tour from Istanbul. I highly recommend using Toursce travel agency and their team for the day trip from Istanbul to Pamukkale. For those committed to seeing Pamukkale during your vacation to Istanbul, the day is a long one. But it is totally worth it. Highly recommend starting the day off paragliding for an optional trip when you arrive in Pamukkale. They can help you arrange it according to arrival time in Pamukkale when you arrive there. Also, you can book that whit this trip before you arrive in Pamukkale. We decided to do it last minute and were so glad that we did. Recommend to bring lots of sunscreens and a hat. Because on sunny days the sun glares off of the white travertine pools. You are going to get burned if not prepared. Very professional company, they were very cognizant of the fact that it was an exhausting long day. Upon arrival back in Istanbul that night after the tour, rather than making us wait on hotel drop-off for others, they put us each in our own vans for direct drop-off at hotels. That was so appreciated! Would highly recommend this tour and this company!

    Only 4 of us were on the Pamukkale daily tour. We were the first to join from the Pamukkale airport and expected the coach to be full however only two more people joined us from the Colossae thermal hotel in Karahayıt town and we were off. The day tour has become a private Pamukkale tour for us. It was a blessing as the guide Mert had more time to explain everything about Pamukkale and Hierapolis ruins to us and made the tour more personal. We did not go out from the Pamukkale calcium terraces for the lunch. All restaurants are outside the national park. There is only one restaurant there. We did not go out to spend too much time and gave extra money and had lunch at the restaurant of the Cleopatra pool. In this way, we had much more time and spent a lot of time in the ancient pool. It is an ancient and interesting pool, with ancient stones and columns from thousands of years ago. Entrance is extra, but there is intense interest. I can’t imagine the density when it’s free. I wonder, could a restaurant open next to the Hierapolis theater? The poolside restaurant would not have been this expensive if an ancient restaurant had been opened. However, I recommend everyone.

    We had very limited time in Istanbul and thought to go to the famous Pamukkale & Hierapolis ancient area in a day. We have found a travel company in Istanbul with a google search. Their tour program was perfect for us. Mr. Erkan helped us, explained all the details of the program on whatsapp and we completed online booking very easily for the Pamukkale day trip from Istanbul by flight then got the confirmation very soon. It was really fantastic experience to learn something about calcium travertines and ancient Hierapolis, history, culture, architecture with an informative local guide. It was lovely to swim at the antique thermal pool in the area. The Pamukkale day trip was really fantastic with all services, airport picks up services on-time in Istanbul and Denizli to Pamukkale town. We did the tour with a total of 11 people and the local guide was very kind. We have been really happy and satisfied with this one day trip to Pamukkale and ancient Hierapolis. This day trip from Istanbul is highly recommended to everyone.

    That was a really great day in the ancient Hierapolis and Cotton Castle area with a charming atmosphere and we were very excited in Pamukkale with white calcium terraces. Our tour guide on the tour was very informative and polite. Our daily tour from Istanbul to ancient Hierapolis and White Terraces fully organized by Erkan Erdogan and we did not feel any problem with pick up from our hotel to the airport and back to the airport. Pamukkale day trip from Istanbul is highly recommended…

    A long day trip but worth it. We were a group of 3 people and had a real fun. It was great to swim in the thermal pool and walk on the terraces. The theatre had an amazing atmosphere. Cant believe believe how these things were made thousands years ago. Thanks everybody.
