It is a long drive from Istanbul, so a bit painful but site is well worth it. I went there on Christmas eve and got lucky since all the others from my bus went to Troy and I got a private tour. Guide was extremely good, knew all the details. 4/5 since 8+ hrs driving in one day, should have taken two day trip...
We had a fantastic day out visiting Gallipoli and the memorials to the terrible events of 1915. The tour guides were superb and gave us a full and accurate account of the events that took place and they did this in a moving and compassionate manner. They told the story from the Turkish perspective as well as the ANZAC one. Everyone on our party was from Australia or New Zealand apart from us.
I have two minor suggestion to make for improving this tour. Firstly we only visited the area where the ANZACS landed and fought. My grandfather landed with the British 29th division further down the coast and i was under the impression that we would visit that as well. When we were looking to book this trip it did not mention this and i think it should be made clearer to people exactly where they were going to visit. The coach trip takes 4 hours both ways and we knew it was going to be a long day. It would have been helpful if you were told this before we booked in the promotion of the tour.
Aver moving experience.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, a long day, but very informative. Be aware though that it quotes a guide Kick off your small-group tour by meeting your guide and air-conditioned coach transport either at your hotel or near Topkapi Palace. Then, hop aboard for a voyage south along Turkeys European edge to the Gallipoli peninsula. We did not actually get a guide until such time as we arrived in a town called Eceabat. Our driver didn't speak English and about half way stopped the bus and indicated we had a 30 minute break. We were all a bit confused as we drove for approximately 5 hours before actually meeting our guide. This needs to be advised at the time of booking. It would have been better if someone had informed us of this before leaving Istanbul. When we arrived at Eceabat we were taken to a restaurant where we had an adequate lunch before setting off for our tour. Can't fault the guide as he had maps and photos to show as well as giving detailed information of the areas we stopped. We spent about 5 hours touring the cemeteries and WW1 sites, something we have wanted to do for many years. At the end of the tour we transferred to a smaller vehicle for our return to Istanbul. Perhaps it would be an idea to have some audio on the bus to give you an insight into what to expect when you arrive. Otherwise a great experience.
Although it is a long drive from Istanbul the experience out weighed the long trip. Our guide was full of knowledge and we could not ask for anyone better. We learnt a lot of history about Gallipoli and got to see a lot of the sites with explanations of what occurred there. It is a trip that you will never forget.
A wonderful trip. A big day travelling but well worth the effort. The guides were very helpful. They picked us up in our little out of the way hotel and returned us there. Very important in a big confusing city. The guide at Gallipoli knew his stuff
If its on your bucket list DO IT. I read the reviews before I went and at the end of the day regardless whether you like the food on the way there and back, that is not the purpose of the trip. Once you are transfered to the bus to Gallipoli, that is when you get a true sense of what happened there. A very deep day. HIghly recommend
I was fortunate on several fronts...the weather was lovely and mild, there were no crowds and our guide was the legendary Kenan Celik OAM, who knows as much about the history of Gallipoli as anyone and who gave an even-handed account of that epic and tragic conflict. The transfers, meals and admin all worked smoothly. I'd do it again.
