Day trip to Ephesus and Pamukkale

We are a family of four and will be arriving at Izmir airport on 17th April night and have a flight out of Denizli on night of 18th April. We are planning to stay in Selcuk on 17th night and visit Ephesus and Pamukkale before flying out of Denizli. We were thiniking of following 2 options and need some advise:

1. Arrange a private tour with some operator who will pick us up from hotel in Selcuk early around 8:00 AM on 18th morning, tour of Ephesus for 3 hours, drive to Pamukkale for few hours tour and drop off at Denizli airport. We have received a price quote from ephesus-day-tours.com (tours operated by Go Holiday Turkey (GHT tourism). Is that a reliable operator? Does anyone have any experience with this operator.

2. Rent a car and drive ourselves but this wll be a one way car rental as we have to pick up car in Selcuk but drop off in Denizli. Is that possible?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I suggest you try contacting www.Helios-Travel.com - they could actually meet you at the airport if you need a transfer to Selcuk. Then you can rent a car from them, but they would have to send the driver by bus to Denizli to collect the car from you. So maybe ask them to provide a car + driver for the day. Should be economical and also no hassle.

NamBenam, I suggest you do the second option, rent a car one way to Denizli and see all the attractions yourself. That is what I did. Have a look at my post No. 2 at the following thread: "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293969-i367-k7238…".

enjoy driving on Turkish roads,

We just returned back from our trip to Turkey and I am glad to say that we went with Option 1. We arranged a private tour with ephesus-day-tours.com (tours operated by Go Holiday Turkey (GHT tourism). This company is a part of bigger tour operator, Hermosa Tours. We were picked from our hotel at 9:00 AM in a private car with a guide. Spend little over 2 hours in Ephesus and drove to Pamukkale/Hierapolis. In the evening we were dropped at Denizli airport. Overall a very good experience with this company and we were able to cover so much ground which wouldn't have been possible if we didn't go with private tour.
