    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. His knowledge was amazing and gave a very balanced perspective, especially being Australian there are always 2 sides and so many stories were told that showed the humanity of all countries. 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!

What people are saying about Marmara Region

I had an absolutely lovely time! There was a little bit of a mix up- I thought the Museum of Troy was included, but it turns out GetYourGuide included the description of their (inactive) experience that includes the museum on this tour that actually does not include the museum. However, they honored the mistaken description and had someone take me to the museum and paid for my entry. It was awesome! Also, the ANZAC tour and the tour of the archaeological remains of Troy was incredible!! Way more to see of the archaeological remains than I expected. The town we stayed in overnight was sooo cute. The hotel was called Kale 17 and was in the center of the downtown area. The hotel was brand new and very nice. The whole tour was vegetarian friendly. Everything was great, I had a lovely time and would do it again.

We were picked up at the hotel, walked around the Spice Market before getting on the ferry to the smaller island. We walked around, drank some tea and then took the ferry to the large island. We rode an electric golf cart on a tour of the island, and ate fish by the seaside. There was nice shopping and we enjoyed some delicious ice cream and coffee before getting on the ferry back to the city. A van drove us back to the hotel. Sulaiman was an excellent tour guide and companion for the trip.

The tour was great we really enjoyed it. The car was clean, sanitizor was available at all times, in addition to different type of refreshment drinks and water. Our driver was Sinan. He was well oriented about the locations we visited. We could easily communicated due to his good English language. He was punctual and good in planning . In general he was very pleasant, kind person and helpful. We would definitely go back with Adore tours again.

Amazing. Had a wonderful tirne. 100% worth the money, I wanted to change the day I initially booked and they were very kind to change it to the next day with no problem. The prince island is so pretty, the first island is very calming while thr second is busy and bustling with tourists and locals. Loved the experience and the fact we got picked and dropped off from hotel to islands

The experience is unique, our guide Nizam is a wonderful person with a unique sense of humor, and he helps you with all your doubts, it would be a trip that I would do in every way again, I enjoyed it too much.
