What people are saying about Gallipoli, Turkey

Excellent day trip. Although it's an early start, it's very well organised with plenty of breaks including on the bus journey from and back to Istanbul. The tour guide, Bulant, was very knowledgeable and also shared with us some pictures of the battlefields from during the war whilst explaining each of the sites we went to which helped bring it to life. Was totally worth the journey down from Istanbul especially as it's a very modern comfortable mini bus - only suggestion for improvement would be to switch the break location for the bus journey back as service from the restaurant was slow which delayed the trip back. Nonetheless, made it back to the accommodation in Istanbul by 10pm and it was an unforgettable day.

We joined the Crowded House Tour to Gallipoli- our guide Bulant was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The trip was long but not unmanageable- lots to see on the way and a stop for refreshments etc - lovely lunch supplied - the only thing was we felt abit pushed for time at the last stop being Chunukbair- there is a lot to see there with two monuments to view the Turkish and the New Zealanders but we had to be back to meet up with bus going back to Istanbul

Was a fantastic tour. Bus ride was good, roomy and nice stops along the way. Arrive for lunch which was excellent. Each stop on the tour was informative and enough time to wander around and take photos.

It was an excellent and moving experience. The guide was very knowledgeable. The service provider was very helpful and courteous. Lunch was great too! Excellent value for the price

The tour was incredible, the guide excellent. All of the main points of Gallipoli were visited with plenty of time given to absorb what had taken place there.
