Fabulous tour. Rearranged our itinerary so we spent a leisurely afternoon at our hotel - the Kolin - which was fabulous. The tour guide Murat was professional, knowledgeable and good fun. A great way to experience this very moving place. Highly recommended.

The main focus of this tour is the Gallipoli peninsula and its WWI sites. Being American, I didn't have a strong connection to the area, where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp lost a lot of lives during WWI, but it was still a very interesting tour, and quite beautiful, as well. Now, the beaches, coastal cemeteries and hilltop monuments are so peaceful, it's hard to imagine the brutal fighting. We had a fabulous tour guide, Morat, who was able to answer all our questions and took us to visit a few places that the other crowds didn't. He was also so nice, he took us to a cemetery not on the usual itinerary because a woman in our group had a great uncle buried there.

The included lunch was pretty good -- 3 courses -- and right on a pretty bay. The next day was the Troy tour. It was cool to be in such an ancient place and hear about all the stories I learned in school about Greek mythology. The ruins are easy to walk around and you can get very close to them.

The hotel was also quite nice. We stayed at the Helen Hotel in Canakkale.

All in all, a great two days!
