    We are very satisfied with the 4 days Cappadocia, Pamukkale and Ephesus tour arranged by One Nation. Mr. Bilel was quite responsive to assist our booking.

    I just returned from the 4 Days Tour of Cappadocia, Pamukkale and Ephesus. Before we even left for Turkey I was totally impressed by Bilal who handled all of our reservations and questions in a very timely and pleasant manner. Bilal was AMAZING ! On the tour we had two tour guides; Aylin and Nizam. They were both very knowledgeable and we always felt safe and knew we were seeing everything mentioned in the itinerary and more. The hotels were great and the food was also very good. I would definitely recommend this company for their tours. I have traveled overseas many times with different tour groups and this company is at the top of my list on ones I would recommend. Thanks for everything !

    Must recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to travel across Turkey . One Nation Travel executed the tour with meticulous planning and all the locations, staff, hotels and food was spot on . The movement was very smooth considering the fact that the tour included, bus transfers, fights and numerous hand offs. All the tour guides spoke excellent English and great attitude and willingness to help . Sevda at Cappodocia and Tamar in Ephesus deserve special mention . Would definitely choose One Nation for next visit.

    Dear Bilal, Ahysan
    How are you?
    You might recall you did all my arrangements for the 4 day tour in April 2014 covering Pammukale, Ephesus and Cappadoccia.
    You might recall I also wrote an excellent review in Tripadvisor for you.
    Since then many people have read my reviews and used your agency’s services for their tours and have been very happy.
    I also get many enquiries from Tripadvisor readers asking for more details about the tours arranged by you and for a firsthand experience of how we felt and I am pleased to tell you that all of them have been happy.
    So it looks like you are doing very well.
    Keep up the good work. You people really put in a lot of effort and are very customer focussed and I am glad to note that you are becoming very popular.
    My best wishes to you and your team. I wish you every success.

    Regards and have a nice day

    Sundar
