4 reviews 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.

  2. James M.

    Can Berber was very accommodating and helpful organizing our 11-day Turkey tour. He is also always available to answer our questions and help with our problems. We enjoyed Istanbul, Cappadocia, Antalya, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Troy and Gallipoli tour very much. Tour guides were very good and arrangements very organized. I would recommend this tour and tour operator to all my friends who wish to visit Turkey.

  3. Terry S.

    My trip to Turkey was fabulous. I had an excellent experience in working with the team at one nation travel – questions were answered quickly and honestly. The trip that was arranged was absolutely perfect.
