F.A.Q About Ephesus & Pamukkale Tour from Marmaris

How long is the total trip ?

The total time that you will spend is 2 full days. Ephesus & Pamukkale Tour from Marmaris is organized with an overnight stay in Pamukkale.

It is always a good idea to keep some cash with you. As you will need to pay for your drinks and personal expenditures.

Well this is a personal choice. But when you do the 2 days trip rather than 1 days trips, you will have less travelling distance and this is the biggest advantage of the 2 days tour.
