    This is busy. Long travels in a bus. After a couple of months looking back I feel you start to get an understanding of Turkey on this trip.

    Don’t go unless Explore provide safe, comfortable and clean transport. You are on the bus for very long periods of time which in itself is not a problem if the bus meets the above criteria.The one we traveled on did not.
