    Excellent tour. We would have liked to spent more time at Cappadocia and Pamukkale town. The lunch stops could be more planned but food was good and people nice. The guide , Aylin was simply wonderful, very knowledgeable and explaining patiently. Good natured and helpful.

    We had a very pleasant experience with One Nation Travel. The pick up, drop offs, tour guides and hotel arrangements were very good. Our whole trip was very efficiently planned and we got to see all the sights that we wanted to. We were a little disappointed with the meals offered, but other than that the whole experience was a great one.

    I do have to say that the items in the rug stores, gem factories and pottery places are very highly overpriced. You can buy them much cheaper at the government stores in Istanbul.
