I wasn't told that I didn't have a return flight from Kayseri to Istanbul. The price was too high considering it didn't include a balloon ride.

Cappadocia is great, a place must visit. But the communication with the Reservation coordinator (Muset Belge) of this operator is below satisfaction. They never provide details like pick-up time proactively and reply your email really late and sometimes just don’t even bother to reply. The only time they proactively provided information to us was to inform the cancellation of hot balloon tour. Then no more details about the refund. Even we send email to ask the refund details, I get no reply after 4 days until now. I think cancellation of hot balloon tour happens quite often. They should not take so long time to process or to reply a daily enquiry? Even you need time to process, is an acknowledgment email confirming that you heard me will be good enough customer service ? Now after going thru the comments/reviews here, I understand it is quite normal for Neons Tour’ guest experiencing bad communication with the operator. I am afraid that my money will not be refunded, so I write a public comment here. Pls confirm my refund status of booking BR-694755154 and Itinerary # 7424936301349.

Some key areas to note: Itinerary: • We booked and paid 5 months in advance so booking of hotels should never have been a problem yet leading up to the tour date, there was constant changing of hotels by Neon - for various reasons. • We were also told certain optionals could be booked during the tour (more on that later) Hotels: some good, some really terrible. Our suspicion is that Neon booked cheap hotels. to be clear, we asked, no good explanation. The biggest unanswered question is why we were moved from Çanakkale to Temizel – 2.5 hours away • Neon said there’s a festival so all hotels are fully booked. But we paid 6 months in advanced - surely an experienced tour company knows this and plans better • This had a massive impact on touring and driving plans for the next day Optionals: If Neon says to you that you can book optionals on the tour - don’t listen. Book in advance for the Hot Air balloon in Cappadocia. • Our group of 14 were the only ones who pre-booked for the Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon ride (not through Neon) - Food: • Dinner at some of the hotels were tasteless. • Consider taking your own spices and sauces Again, overall, between Thompsons Travel and Neon Tours, I would be highly skeptical using booking any tour through you again or to recommend you to anyone else. You really disappointed a large tour group and we heard people from other tour groups had the same complaints.

We normally do not take hot air ballon ride. It is usually a rare event I would say. This time my wife and I took it by joining the 2 day Cappadocia tour when we visited Turkey and we opted to have hot air ballon ride, it was a right decision. The ride was never cheap but we never regretted the choice and we had the once in life time experience. The coordination by the tour operator for the whole trip from hotel in Istanbul to airport, plane trip to Cappadocia, transfers, ground tours, ballon ride, etc., until we returned to hotel in Istanbul was fantastic and seamless. We were very pleased. The beautiful sunrise scene with so many hot air balloons flying in the air, making it a picture perfect. Never miss the hot air ballon ride in Cappadocia!

One of the superb place I ever visited. A place worth to visit with family. A great combination of ancient and interesting places.
