The breakfast buffet and lunch was delious every single day....al in all we had the time of our life and we must thank N&M tours for it. We hope to visit again ..

    Jigna's 8 days trip to Turkey

    Best trip till now We came across Offbeat Trippers through Travel Triangle and they were the 3rd agent to be introduced to us. We were immediately convinced to proceed with our plans with them. We initially interacted with Prerna and she gave us possibly the beet combination to fit all our requirements within our expected itinerary. The suggestions and options given by her were keeping in mind what we wanted. We finalized the package with minimum fuss and were guided all through the way till the start of our trip. Just prior to the commencement of the trip we started discussing with Abhishek the finer details of the trip and he was constantly available during our travel with all the necessary updates. The Highlight of our trip was the Hot air Balloon Ride over Cappadocia. It has been a great experience to travel to turkey with Offbeat Trippers and we would definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

    Excellent Trip Yes, the trip was good... Except following... 1. Hotel booking in Istanbul was far from Market and was in the slop 2. Baku city tour one day was ok... But 2nd day was Gobustan was a waste of time. 3. Cappadocia's guide of the Pupa tour was very good. Pamukkale's tour guide was just ok. Overall tour was good.. and as per the commitment

    Drabani's 9 days trip to Turkey

    My family trip to Turkey w. e. f 28th Dec/2019 to 04.01.2020 customised by Travel Triangle indeed ended to our entire satisfaction except for the Mascara hotel ,Cappadocia which was earlier booked as a cave hotel was really not. However the services at the hotel were good. Also, the guide at Cappadocia did not take us to the unground city. I had foreign trips several times previously also customized by other travel agencies, like MMT, but in my opinion Travel Triangle is professionally more competent and prompt in their responses to customers as they complete all the formalities well in advance without giving any tension to the customers. I unhesitatingly recommend Travel Triangle to every one who opts to go for travel abroad. Well behaved people of Turkey, hotel services, hot air balloon ride at Cappadocia .

    Surabhi's 8 days trip to Turkey

    We had a wonderful time in Turkey. Thanks to City of Sultans and Travel Triangle for preparing a suitable itinerary for us and guiding us properly at every instant. Right from the pickup from the airport to the city tours, flights and drop to the airport, we were assisted by friendly agents, guides and drivers who ensured a comfortable journey for us. Moreover, the price was also very reasonable and everything was managed very well by them. I'd absolutely recommend someone traveling to Turkey to opt for their services.

    Saurav Rathi

    Bengaluru

    Saurav's 9 days trip to Turkey

    We had a great trip. It was very well planned and the overall experience was excellent. Pros: - The day tours were seamlessly planned. - Domestic flights were booked very well (evening/night flights) , it gave us time to explore the places more. - Hotels were all really good except palm hotel in Kusadasi. Locations of all the hotels were very near to the tourist areas or old city area. - Rajat was available throughout the tour over call, even though he was in India but not once we faced problems as such. - We covered so many cities, so many different locations. Cons: - The transfers from Airport could be made smoother, perhaps by making a WhatsApp group with the agency coming for the pickup. Since driver's number is not provided, it gets little difficult to spot the driver at the airport. Overall, I would like to say thanks to Rajat and his team but all the arrangements.
