Istanbul to Goreme Destination Reviews

Was prompt and had a good ride. However the ventilation was quite poor which made the bus warm and having loads of people cough. Air vent should be opened for a while at the start of the trip or at least passengers should be given that option to have that.

A good way to travel at night.
