1 review for 11-Day Istanbul, Cappadocia, Antalya, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Troy and Gallipoli Tour

  1. Sumit C.

    We heard so much about how wonderful Turkey was that we always wanted to visit. We are independent travellers and thought that it would be too difficult to organise other than going in a group. How wrong were we!!! Bilal at One Nation Travel kept us updated on everything we wanted to do in Turkey and offered us other suggestions. We spent 11 days travelling throughout Turkey enjoying the amazing scenery, seeing the beautiful structures and buildings and being welcomed by the extremely friendly Turkish. Turkey should be on everyone’s “bucket list”. Highly recommend Bilal as we were able to use WhatsApp and emails to sort out all the details of our travel.
