We opted for the two day trip to Ephasis and Pammukale, which was very good value for money and enjoyable but very tiring. It is two very full days, the first day is spent at Ephasis which consist of a 3 hour stroll in the heat through the town, ensure that you take your hat and plenty of water with as it turns warm very quickly and we saw no places to buy more water. A lot of time is spent in the coach as it is quite a distance away. We slept in a lovely hotel in Pammukale that had a lovely pool, thermal bath and jaccuzzi, and all were used by us. Dinner was at the top of the hotel overlooking the cotton clad mountains in this dry and dusty landscape area. Early the following morning we went up to the white mountain and walked around. Do ensure that you take your sunglasses with you as it could be blinding. Afterwards we spent 3 hours at the Cleopatra pool which was fantastic before our long trip back to Altinkum. Was well worth doing though and something that I would recommend rather than doing a one day trip to Pammukale where you spend 6 hours on the road.
