We were well pleased that we booked this taxi tour to fit in with the hours our cruise ship was in Kusadasi. Denis was an excellent tour guide and we appreciated all the information he was able to give to us as we drove to Pamukkale (Hierapolis) and also Laodicea. The hot springs are an amazing sight and the ruins of both Hierapolis and Laodicea are quite incredible. It was the highlight of our trip to Turkey! It was great to see something of the Turkish landscape other than what was close to the cruise ports. The van was very comfortable for our adult family of four and we appreciated the bottled water provided.
I mostly enjoyed the trip - guide could have been more enthusiastic about the site - spent more time on facts about Turkey. Meal was mediocre and you should have spent less time/effort on the hotel visit. It wasn't explained the lunch would be in a huge hotel with quite rude staff. The guide didn't eat with us and said afterwards he preferred better quality food which of course undervalued us - obviously we were cattle to be fed! A packed lunch on the bus might have been enough, and more time on the site.
Well done whole day trip. Maybe there should be some more time in Pamukkale so you can visit the ancient city as well. The hotel where we had lunch was fine and the spring with muddy water was so much fun to visit. The guide was well informed and told us a lot of information.
Wasted too much time driving the tiny village roads on the way back, so we spent almost an hour longer to drive back from the site than it took to drive there! Our guide was awesome! Would recommend him to our friends!
