Transportation from Goreme to Istanbul

Goreme to Istanbul Destination Reviews

I put two stars only because, as a result, we reached Istanbul. Wi-Fi on the bus worked for one hour of the trip out of seventeen. After driving 100 kilometers, the bus broke down and we waited for repairs for 5 hours! We were not transferred to another bus, no, we stood outside (it was quite cold) and waited! Drivers constantly smoked in the cabin. This is the worst bus ride ever.

Best overnight bus experience in Turkey. My partner and I have been travelling turkey for the past 6 weeks, and used many different companies - some OKAY others terrible (smoking onboard, bad seats, breakdowns). This bus outshone them all. It was super clean, the most comfortable seats of any bus, the driver drove the bus smoothly and responsibly making it very easy to drift off to sleep. The crew onboard provided refreshments, ensured everyone wore seatbelts, cleaned up rigorously, turned off the cabin lights overnight and also stopped for restroom breaks. We wish all of our overnight busses were this smooth
