Get an early start on the day with 6:30am pickup at your hotel in Fethiye, Oludeniz, Calis, Hisaronu, or Ovacik, then drive into the Taurus Mountains, with a stop for breakfast at a local restaurant.
Upon arrival at Hierapolis and Pamukkale, explore the Roman ruins of the ancient city and health resort, from Roman baths to the basilica, gymnasium, theater, and a street lined with stone columns. You'll have some free time to keep exploring on your own, with the option to visit the nearby necropolis, burial site of more than 1,000 ancient sarcophagi.
Following your time in the city, soak your muscles in the Pamukkale travertine springs, an otherworldly landscape of white stone and warm water.
After hitting the baths at Pamukkale, head to a nearby restaurant for a buffet lunch (own expense). Before the return trip to your hotel, you'll have time to shop for textiles, onyx stones, and leather goods, practicing your bargaining skills with local merchants and craftsmen. This 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
