Amazing Turkey Experience With One Nation

Our recent November trip to Turkey was nothing short of fun, educational and adventurous. We were told you need at least 2 weeks in Turkey. However, due to limited leave which was slightly more than a week, we planned to cover the ‘places not to be missed. We found the perfect tour online which was a 4 day programme put together by One Nation Travel. This tour essentially covers Ephesus, Pammukale and Cappadoccia which we booked before leaving Singapore. Bilal was quick to respond to all our queries and Can Bebber, the Sales Manger, whom we met in Istanbul, was very efficient and helpful. He gave us his contact and to reach out for him anytime during our 4 day trip. Came in handy when one of the transfers didn’t take place as planned and he made special arrangements for us to be picked up by his friend. We really appreciated the service provided. The 4 day tour was well planned and the guides were knowledgeable. We loved Ephesus and the highlight was the Hot Air Balloon in Cappadocia. Pammukale was a little underwhelming. Not sure if it was the time of year or over the years with too many hotels built around, the cotton cliffs were not all that white and widespread. Overall it was worth a visit and a dip in the Hot springs is a must. We have given our feedbackk to Can suggesting further improvements on hotel locations used (eg. Goreme area in Cappadoccia instead of Urgup) and optional arrangements in Pammukale after visiting the coton cliff/hot sprngs and waiting for our bus ride from Pammukale to Cappadoccia. Tour in Pammukale ends at around 2pm and the bus doesnt leave till 10pm. We are hoping our suggestions will be implemented. We made our own arrangement to stay at Divan Hotel in Istanbul at Taksim. 5-star hotel with awesome service and a very helpful concierge Semen who went out of his way to make our trip very pleasant. Centrally located and walking distance to the metro that connects to the old city where all the attractions are. We plan to return to Turkey in the near future and visit more places. We would use One Nation Travel service again for sure,
