  11. Vinay A

    We took a 4 days package which covered Cappadocia, pamukkale, kusadasi and ephesus. All the itinerary was perfectly planned.The booking was very smooth but I hesitated it before as I was unfamiliar with the tour agency but I took a chance and went a head. as soon as I booked, Mr Bilal looked after my domestic air tickets and made all required arrangements and a day before Can Berber explained me my package details once again. Everything was perfect from the day one to the last date. Even the tiny problems were solved within minutes of a phone call made which was very impressive. i would strongly recommend one tour nation tour agency to others.

    Dear Bilal,

    We just returned back to India after a 2 weeks trip to Turkey and Jordan. I would like to thank you and Can Bieber for the wonderful arrangement that your agency made during our full day tour of Istanbul as well as our 4 day trip to Pamukkale /Ephesus/Cappadocia. We had great time and was very happy with our first balloon ride.

    We request you to please inform the officials of your Ephesus team that we really enjoyed the trip thanks to very passionate,very knowledgeable and energetic guide Marcy. She made buildings and artifacts which were 2000 years old; almost come to life….

    Our only not so good experience was when we landed at Cappadocia at around 12 in the night and the team who had come to receive us was not well organized as we reached the hotel heaven cave at 2.30 in the night

    Once again thanks a lot for all your help and being so patient with us during the entire process. If asked by our friends or relatives we will have no hesitation in recommending your agency to them.

    Regards

    Sunil
