    This was a most awesome experience. The pick up from the hotel, pick up at the other end and the whole day out was truly memorable and we loved every moment of it and felt it was an incredibly good value for the money.

    This was a great tour that I would highly recommend to anyone considering visiting Gallipoli. Before booking I was concerned about the length of the tour, it is a long day with pick up from the hotel at 6.30am and not returning until well after 10pm, however I needn’t have worried as the drive did not seem as long as I expected. Our guide was very knowledgable about Gallipoli both from an ANZAC and a Turkish view and provided interesting commentary throughout the day. He also amended the tour slightly to include a battlefield where a relative of one of the tour group fought which really added a personal touch for her. We were lucky and had a small group of five but I imagine even with more people the experience would have been great.

    I cannot praise this tour highly enough. Our tour guide Hassan was exceptional with his knowledge and passion on this subject and made the whole day a terrific experience for our family. Although a long day trip from Istanbul it was worth ever minute and truly something we will never forget. Thank you Hassan for opening our eyes and hearts to this wonderful experience. This tour is a must for anyone interested on this subject. We had our 3 kids with us aged 20, 18 and 13 and they all enjoyed the trip.

    We spent a wonderful day visiting the Australian sites on the Gallipoli peninsula. Hasan, our guide with was very knowledgable on the history, and sites, and we left satisfied at having paid tribute to both Australian and Turkish soldiers. The sites give respect to both sides of the conflict and Hasan understood this. It was wonderful visiting at a quiet time of the year as there was more time to reflect on the importance of the sites.
    Thankyou for a wonderful visit, very enlightening, and very comprehensive.

    Hello Bilal!

    Apologies for taking so long to respond but, sadly, it takes no time at all to be swamped by life as usual after a trip away.
    We loved your Gallipoli tour, from the on time pick up from our accommodation to the late night drop off at the same. All the staff we dealt with were excellent and our tour guide was personable, informative and obviously took great pride in his work and the history of the sites visited. Seeing the Gallipoli sites has added a new dimension to our understanding of Anzac history and, I have no doubt, has given our two children a greater appreciation of the bravery and sacrifices from both sides for future studies or commemorations of Anzac Day.
    The only negative comment I would make pertains to the dining arrangement on the return trip. The roadhouse/restaurant was uninviting, completely lacking in atmosphere (in contrast to the rest of the day’s experiences), the staff were disinterested and the food expensive and bland. This, however, was the only spoiler on the day.
    Thank you again for your help in re-booking our trip – I still can’t believe I booked the wrong month!! We really appreciated your swift resolution to that travel hitch!
    The Gallipoli tour stands out as one of the highlights of our trip to Turkey so, again, thank you to you and your team.

    With best wishes,

    We did the one day tour to Gallipoli from Istanbul a couple of weeks ago. Its a big day out but very well organised and well worth the effort. What really stood out for us was our guide,Harkan Yildiz (excuse the spelling). He was passionate about the history and particularly the human side of Gallipoli. His input was entertaining, moving and left us with a much better understanding of what actually went on. Really glad we did this tour and would happily recommend it to anyone.
