6 reviews for 8-Day Seven Wonders of Turkey Tour

  1. RWGalvez2012

    Great Travel Agent. I took the 8 Day 7 Wonders of Turkey. Every single detail of the itinerary was well planned, from the airport pick up to hotel transfers, flights from one place to another and tour schedules. Nothing to worry, nothing to think about. I love all the tours in Istanbul, Pamukkale, Ephesus and Cappadocia. Tour guides are knowledgable and friendly.

    Hotels were clean and walking distance to all tourists spots.

    Though I never booked the balloon ride with them coz they were fully booked, it was not a big deal. They suggested taking it from another agent. I took it from Voyager Hot Air Balloon which is another agent to deal with if you are interested.

    I highly recommend ONE NATION TRAVEL to everyone thinking of visiting Turkey. Mr. BERBER is so hospitable and easy to deal with. These are professional people to deal with.

    Love it and will definitely go back.

    We went to Istanbul, Pamukkale, Ephesus and Cappadocia. We were very lucky to find this travel agency in google! They really made a very very good job, they’ve been so kind to us, very good people, hotels, they never leaved us alone in every place we arrived any hour of the day there was someone waiting to take us to our hotel. Thanks again for the trip, we really had a great time.
