My friend and were staying in Izmir so we took a field trip to Pamukkale and Hierapolis with Neon tours. We were picked up at 6:45 sharp in a top notch van who took us to a meeting point where we met our cool guide Josh and the rest of the company. The trip was long about three hours and that's the only thing I would change if I could. The trip was comfortable with coffee breaks, once we got there Josh showed us around, gave us enough information to start exploring the beautiful site of Hierapolis and helped us book a buggy with an English speaking driver and a phenomenal photograph who took us around and took some great shots. I could complain that 3 hours at Pamukkale and Hierapolis aren't enough but if I stayed there three days I would have had the same feeling. My field trip was enough to see the site and to admire it but next time definitely I will stay longer because you can go paragliding ( Josh offered to arrange for us), take a swim in Cleopatra's pool or just go relaxing in your bathing suit at one of Pamukkale's pools. After the site Josh took us to buffer lunch which was very good and to jewelry work shop to see how magic happens. I would definitely recommend the trip with just one favor to extend it a little bit. Shout out to Josh who was amazing, blow us away when he organized for us a solo visit to an amazing ceramic shop ( Firca (quartz & ceramic )

Ever since we were picked up at the meeting point, our experience was really great.

as soon as we met our guide, he started pouring information, and had the time and dedication to explain everything.

you could tell he was well informed, and had years of experience, never hesitated when asked about historical facts and always was well versed and explained as best as possible.

although its a 3 hour ride from Izmir, Its worth the wait and the travel, once you get there the place is magnificent.

Fine tour with a experience tour guide name İsmail. Very well transport and comfortable.
Very beautiful place to visit, just a little bit far from Izmir ( 4 hours drive), but it worse it, because the place is very beautiful.
Absolutely recommended to visit Pamukkale for those who loves historical places.

It was Sunday and that was the first mistake we did when we planned to go to pamukkale😏. We were deceived by the spectacular photos but in reality the water is very much controlled. Only a small portion is supplied by the water rest is dry. The sun was burning and the vision was blurred with the whiteness of the Cotton Castle. As we were less informed and the tour guide was selfish enough to keep an umbrella only for himself we were literally burned. Coleoptera pool was so crowded that I hardly could see water. Anyway maybe this is an amazing place to visit but my and my children’s opinion is 3 star.

Our driver arrived 15 min ahead of schedule and waited patiently in the lobby as we were still having our breakfast. It turned out that we were the only guests in the group tour ;)... After about 45min of drive, our excellent guide, Mesut, joined us from a small town called Aydın. Mesut was an experienced and knowledgeable guide who shared lots of history and stories behind the sights that we saw. He also exceeded expectation by sharing interesting facts about the many towns that we passed by. I would certainly recommend Neon Tours and Mesut for this tour.

Dear Harrice, Thank you for your kind review. We'd like to give more time to our guests but since it's a very long distance between Pamukkale to Izmir we're trying our best to give as mu7ch time as we can. We'll try to extend it. Hope to see you again, Neon Tours

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this amazing place. Nearly didn't go because of some negative reviews about guided tours. So a friend encouraged me to go myself on the train. I'm forever grateful that I did because the experience is truly unique. (On the plus side was able to wander about this amazing place without the restrictions of a guided tour).
Getting here is easy from Izmir. Get the early train from Basmane station to the end of the line Denizli (28 TL) ( This train also stops at Selcuk for Ephesus). I arrived around 12:30. Checked into my hotel a few minutes walk from the train station and next to the bus station where I caught a mini bus (4TL)
To Pemukkale (just a walk up the road to the entrance). This is where the adventure begins ( you have to take your shoes off to walk on the terraces so make sure you have something like a small back pack to carry them). I arrived about 2 in the afternoon and was able spend 4 hours exploring both Pemukkale and Heiropolis. An experience I will never forget. A guided tour isn't required just read about Pemukkale on Wikipedia for the information. The next morning I spent an hour so at the Laodocia site (again I caught a minibus from the station and it's a walk up the hill to the site). Then I returned back to Izmir on the midday train.

It's hard to beat the incredible combination of natural beauty, ancient architecture, and spiritual heritage found at Pamukkale (ancient Hierapolis). Go! Just go!

Pamukale was the highlight of the day. It is a very nice and unique site. You can have a walk/sit in the water.

I am from Turkey and always wanted to visit this place, I guess I was pretty late to see the pools with natural water. We were told that sections were close in 1996, there was a small section they did kept open for you to get inside the pool ( we were told water was not natural anymore), too crowded, pretty dirty.First you can drive up there with a car and park your car for 10 tl whole day and start from the top, or walk up from the bottom (which we didn't do) Entrance was pretty expensive for locals 50 tl, and it doesn't include the other pool are inside. It was another 50tl to get in the Antique Pools(which we did not). As usual prices around the pools up there were super expensive, for example Magnum ice cream in Izmir or anywhere else in cities cost 5.5tl up there it was 18tl. This is same for simple water, cola, food etc. But yu can bring your own food and drink in your backpack. I personally was disappointed with the place, but must see once in a life time. And you really don't have to stay in town more then two days tops, since town really has not growing at all. Boring little town.
