      Best Trip Ever.... Thanks to my trip organizer My family trip to Turkey has turned out to be the best travel trip abroad I’ve done in years. I want to thank Travel Triangle for suggesting me N& M travels for organizing this trip. Mr. Erdem from N &M Travels, Ankara, Turkey has been the epitome of this trip. Right from the day I had shortlisted this agency, he has been working hard to make this trip right up to our highest expectations. He suggested the best possible itinerary and hotels and transfers were perfect. The best part of this trip is that Mr. Erdem was personally involved on day to day basis throughout our tour so that everything gets coordinated well. I again thank TT and N & M travels for giving us such a memorable trip Dr Sumit Jindal

    • Trip to Turkey

      We have always been travelers who like to explore city at their own pace, but this time around with a toddler we decided to take a guided tour to Turkey and it was the best decision we took. Coming to the tour, overall, it was a good experience with few let downs .There were some issues pertaining to our Cappadocia trip where , the itinerary stated it to be a two day tour but given the domestic flights that were booked , we only got one day to cover Cappadocia. Nevertheless , tour operator compensated by giving us 1 day private tour at Cappadocia , which helped us cover everything and a complementary Turkish Bath ! As we hadn't planned to experience Turkish Bath initially , it was very relaxing and helped us rewind during the travel . So no regrets there :) We were most disappointed with our experience at Grand Yavuz Hotel ,Istanbul, the staff seemed unhelpful . As we were travelling with a toddler , we had constant need of warm water for Preparation of Milk and food , but the hotel staff didn't seem to help , unresponsive and rude . Thankfully there was a very nice cafe just adjacent to Grand Yavuz - Mivan restaurant, where the staff was very courteous and helpful , they arranged hot water for the baby food every-time we went there.. We were so impressed by their service that we ended up having all our meals in Istanbul there - -It's a must visit and a gem hidden in the old city. To summarize , it was a good experience all in all barring few hiccups . Thumbs up to the tour operator for his punctuality and very good tour guides under him ,who were very helpful and understanding and tried to work with our pace ; not rushing through sightseeing ;)
