Refund Please
May 2019 • Friends
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.

Dear our valuable guest, We're sorry to hear that you couldn't join your tour. We call hotels (if we informed hotel name) day before in the afternoon for pick up times. Cancellation of hot air balloon tours are out of our control. We already informed Viator about refund and they'll give full refund for unused services. Neon Tours

Turkish sites and history is amazing. Neon Tours must up their game!
Apr 2019
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.

Dear Mr. Umesh, We're glad to hear that you loved our country. Anzac memorial date matched with your travel dates so we had to change your hotel only at Canakkale. You supposed to stay at a 4 star hotel and we changed it with a 5 star one in order to compensate this change. Optional tours require minimum number of attendants so we can not book these tours in advance. Hot air ballon tours operation status also announces day before the travel date so it's not possible to book in advance it for us. We're really sorry to hear that you didn't like our country's cuisine. Every country has it's local tastes and some of them might not match with every single person's palate. Hope to see you again, Neon Tours

Once in a lift time experience
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!

Baloon ride cancelled for "technical" reasons
Apr 2018 • Couples
We are particularly disappointed because our booking in Cappadocia was mainly motivated by this baloon activity.
In addition the weather is not responsible for this cancellation because we saw other balloons flying that day.
We really feel that this activity was canceled because we were few.
We would never have booked this trip to Cappadocia without the Balon Tour.

Dear Jean, Thank you for your comments. Sorry about the issue, we understand you well, but the balloons are not operated by us. We were informed by the balloon company that the flights were cancelled by civil aviation authority. So it's not under our control. You should have been informed that the refund will be applied for this cancellation which without our control. Thank you for your kind understanding Neon Tours,
