Bhavna's 6 days trip to IstanbulWhile going across through the holiday blogs we were attracted to some of the most surreal pictures of Turkey and thats when we decided to plan our next holiday to Turkey rather than going to the usual holiday destinations closer to India. We explored the beautiful cities of Istanbul and Cappadocia and the experience was beyond words. The travel agent SVS Travels shortlisted through Traveltriangle made sure we had a smooth and hasslefree holiday which infact turned out to be as things were all well planned and well coordinated as soon as we landed in Turkey. Right from the hotel arrangements to the daily tours, everything was well planned and details were shared in advance without any followup or reminders. Though we couldn't do the hot air balloon due to weather conditions but instead the travel agent made sure we experience the ATV ride which was also quite adventurous. Great work Santosh and team and Ria traveltriangle partner.
