we started our day very early and, but had a chance to catch up on rest on the bus trip to the site, when we arrived we were met by our tour guide who escorted us to a local restaurant for lunch, after lunch we got on the bus and went to all of the places that were relevant to the Gallipoli landings and subsequent battles, our guide was very unbiased and we were told the story from both and Australian and Turkish side so a lot of the gaps were filled in. I would like to thank Viator, Fez Travel and the local tour company/guide for giving us a very memorable day.
It is a very long day but the tour is absolutely worth it. We had plenty of time to take in the various sites at the memorial and our guide was clearly passionate about his job and about informing people of the Gallipoli campaign. This tour is a must for all Australians and New Zealanders who visit Turkey!
This was a very long day, from 6:30am to 11:00pm, but well worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to cite units and dates of battles. It was a most emotional but memorable trip.
Emotional experience, a very long day. Our guide was very knowledgeable, informative
Our very young guide was fantastic. Her knowledge was second to none and with her bright personality was had a fabulous, albeit long, day. Would recommend this to all.
Unreal experience. A must for any Aussie/kiwi in the area. So surreal being at Anzac Cove. Makes you really appreciate how lucky we are to live in Aus/NZ. Only bad thing is the long drive down there.
A long day but so worth the trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. It made such a difference being on a small tour as it gave you the opertunity to be able to look for the things you were there for. The tour took us to all the important areas and at no time was time made an issue people could take their own time in all areas after our guide had given all of the information.
While this tour was quite long for one day, it was, for Aussie or Kiwi people a heartwarming and great experience. The host and driver were very good and we can heartily recommend this tour to any Australian or New Zealand citizens.
Then tour was informative and worth while. It was a long day, 5 hours in each direction. The restaurant for lunch was barely average.
One of the best trips we have ever done. The guide was fantastic and the information she provided was very informative. Would have no problem recommending this tour to anyone.
The Gallipoli Day Trip was an amazing experience. Being Australian this place has always had a big interest by me and our tour guide Jimmy was outstanding with his knowledge of WW1 and the battles that took place at each location. Highly recommend going on this tour
Very comprehensive. Saw so much in just one day. It was a bit rushed at each place but only because there was only a day to see it all. The time we spent there was, personally, enough for me. The tour guide was great. Spoke about the war from both sides and the politics before, during and after the war. Very friendly and taught us a lot about Turkish culture and what else to see and do in Istanbul and Turkey.
We had a great tour to Gallipoli, very informative, and a moving experience. Would definitely recommend this tour.
excellent tour with very good guide, got drop off at Attaturk International Terminal in time for our midnight flight
to Aqcaba by the Red Sea
Amazing tour. Cem our guide knew lots of history and even took us to areas that weren't part of the usual tour. Such a moving and humbling experience.
I learnt so much about the ANZAC and the Turk's experiences in the Gallipoli campaign and I firmly believe it is a must-see for Australian and New Zealanders who visit Istanbul.
Absolutely amazing! We loved it and would recommend it to everyone! Cem was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot from him! Thank you so much! From the Aussie!
Excellent trip. Very informative guide. It is a long day though but worth the trip. Pleased we did it.
