Hi! I am Aykut Altınışık, Archaeologist and licensed guide. I plan private Turkey tours, Archaeology tours and Driver-Guide tours all around Turkey. My itineraries are well designed for independent travelers or small groups who are looking for the ultimate personalized experiences.

My guided private Turkey tour will provide you with a customized itinerary you want at your own pace. I can be very flexible and tailor a private tour around your desired travel dates. I will make it a truly unique and personal customized tour. You will see the sites you want, try the food you like with me. Avoid crowds and discover the real Turkey. Stay in family-owned small, boutique style hotels and eat in local restaurants where locals eat only. Contact me to discuss a day tour in Antalya or a private Turkey tour. We would plan the best itinerary together. Hope to meet you in Turkey.

Private Pamukkale tour with Archaeologist Aykut

Private Pamukkale tour with Archaeologist and driverguide

Pamukkale is Turkey’s foremost mineral-bath spa because of its natural beauty: hot calcium-laden waters spring from the earth and cascade over a cliff. As they cool they form dramatic travertines of hard, brilliantly white calcium that form pools.

Named the Cotton Fortress (pah-MOOK-kah-leh) in Turkish, it has been a spa since the Romans built the spa city of Hierapolis around a sacred warm-water spring. The Antique Pool is still there, littered with marble columns from the Roman Temple of Apollo. You can swim in it for a fee.

You can spend a pleasant day at Pamukkale, exploring the extensive Roman ruins of Hierapolis, climbing the ranks of seats in the great Roman theater, touring the exhibits in the Archeological Museum, splashing along the travertines (where permitted) and even soaking in the Antique Pool littered with fluted marble columns.
