The Basics

Walk along the long colonnaded street towards the gate flanked by towers, and continue on to the expansive Greco-Roman theater decorated with impressive marble reliefs and a 12,000-seat stadium. Get a feel for ordinary life at the agora and the public baths, and stand at the place where Saint Paul preached his first sermon in 46 AD.

Most tours of Perge include the outstanding Aspendos Theater and a refreshing break at the Kursunlu Waterfalls. Longer tours tack on beach time in Side, and more immersive multi-day tours may explore Ephesus, Hierapolis, Xantos, Letoon, Patara, Myra, Olympos, Phaselis, as well as the other-worldly Cappadocia and the mystical city of Konya.

Private Tour Perge,Aspendos Waterfall ...
We had Mustafa and Ohmer as our guided driver. These two are awesome! we had a great time with them and the tour was amazing. Mustafa did a little extra for us as he is proud of his home town and the company was great to work with as I inadvertently booked the wrong day and wanted to start the tour an hour later than originally planned.

5 in 1: THE BEST OF ANTALYA region: Perge, Aspendos, Side, Kursunlu Waterfall
Tour was great. Lots of great history. Perge was amazing because you can see the layout of how the cities looked. Each site was really magical. The waterfall was beautiful and peaceful. Aspendos theater was magnificent and our guide told us about the layout and a story about the man who built it. We got some free time, about 15/20 mins to explore on our own. The aquaducts were grandiose and amazing architecture to see. Side was really cool to see a modern city atop the ancient one. They are excavating more and the have view platforms under your feet. Apollo's temple was looking over the water with athena's just to the right. Great tour if you love ancient history. Our guide was knowledgeable and kind. He answered a lot of my questions before I even had to ask. He also informed us of life today in Turkey which was really helpful. Being able to see so many sites in a day and getting in depth information was also really nice rather than just super basic information. The pickup and drop off were on time and the ride was really nice, comfortable and clean. There is some walking involved, which I loved. I recommend comfortable shoes and water. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, was really outstanding! He was well prepared, clear, and very engaging and gave so many additional informations. He was very thoughtful always looked out for everyone in the group as we had all ages of people that day. He has deep historical knowledge and knows how to grab attention of the group. Very good experience altogether. Aspendos was the best highlight tho.

Our tour guide Berkay was great, very knowledgeable and made the tour fun and although we expected to pay some entrance fees he meds sure we got in to all the locations without having to pay. He also provide a private concert for our group as he played traditional Turkish songs on his flute. He was awesome!

Exploring the Great Ruins in Hot, Hot Weather
NurSabrina_H, Aug 2022
Perge,Aspendos,Side and Waterfall (sightseeng) excursion,trip,daily.
They picked us up right on time. The van was clean with air conditioning. However, it would have been better if there were cup holders and storage to hold our stuff. Yakob, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. He gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. Lunch was decent; you have a choice of either chicken, fish, kofte (meatballs) or mix. Portion is rather small but still filling. It’s very, very hot in August so do bring a big hat, sunblock, shades and plenty of water. They also sell water in the van for 5 TL a bottle. Overall, it was a great trip with Yakob and Mehmet, the driver. However, the weather was unforgiving and I think we would have enjoyed the trip more when it’s not over 35 degrees. Thanks Yakob and Mehmet! We would definitely recommend.

Aspendos Theater

A few miles/kilometers from Perge is this 2,000-year-old theater, considered to be the best remaining example of an ancient theater. Made of an exceedingly high-quality calcareous stone, the stunning theater is intact and even hosts a summertime ballet and opera festival.
