Istanbul to Goreme Destination Reviews

No toilet on coach and was sure I ensured I chose a coach with toilet access. The seat I chose was not one given and ended up being sat at the front. Journey was fine as slept most of the way however driver kept smoking which did wake us up and make for an unpleasant journey. Journey time was 2 hours less than stated would be.

It was way to cold in the bus.
Bus Standard 2X1, Oncu Seyahat, Oct 7, 2023
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.
