    I had such a wonderful experience. Firstly I was picked up on time to leave for Cannakale with a stop on the way. Once arriving had a delicious light lunch and then off... I had the best guide, Bulant (forgive spelling) who gave such an incredible insight and overview of what took place back in 1914-1917.

I would definitely recommend this tour. There was also plenty of time to have a wander and capture the whole area! Also thanks to our driver Josh!
