The day was very good! The guide was knowledgeable and thorough and very interesting! Very full one day trip. Extremely worthwhile
The tour of Gallipoli itself was extremely good, but the whole day was spoilt by the lack of communication regarding the transport from Istanbul to Gallipoli and return. We were part of a very full tour, and without exception every person was disappointed in the confusion caused by the lack of advice that was forthcoming on the outward and return journeys. Otherwise this would have been a very very good experience.
This tour was great. The bus ride was quite long and our bus had problems with the airconditioning, but apart from that it was comfortable and enjoyable. The tour of Gallipoli itself was informative and interesting, the guide was very knowledgeable and his information was interesting to listen to. We had a couple of waits, one at the lunch break and one after the tour, while we were waiting for other people who were meeting us from another tour, and this was a little annoying. All in all the tour was good though and I would recommend it to others.
The most amazing tour we did on our 4 week holiday!!! The drive to and from Istanbul is long, but comfortable and you can nap :) The tour itself was amazing - a must do for any Kiwi's or Aussie's. Once you start the tour there aren't alot of toilet stops so pace drinking your water! Also bring snacks for the drive there and home. Such a beautiful place to visit would go back in a heart beat!
Although its a long drive it is worth every minute! Our good was wonderful and so knowledgable and adapted the tour to how we liked it and what we wanted to see. Sends goosebumps down your spine being there. A must do trip, loved it!!!
It's a long trip but well worth it. The tour guide was very knowledgable
Bus was comfortable, tour guide was informative. A very memorable experience.
A very full day but comprehensive.
Made special by our excellent professional guide and his delightful sense of humour
Very worthwhile tour for those interested in the Australian and New Zealand history in 1915. Day trip is very long, with no particular hurry to get you there or get you home, around 5 hours each way. The guide when you arrive is excellent and has a great balance in the presentation of Turkish and Allied events. Recommended, but only for those who can handle the bus trip, (driver and roads were fine)
This was the most moving experience of my life, unforgettable, guide was very informative, don't leave Turkey without being drawn into this tour, it has a hold on you as soon as you step onto Anzac Cove, it's very haunting, you can feel the presents of all those boys and men that lost their lives on the shores of a the unforgiving coastline of Turkey.
Learnt so much about the Anzacs as well as the Turkish side of the battle. This tour was informative and well worth the trip from Istanbul.....great day out and such an important part of Aussie history
The best thing about the day was the guide. The site itself was fascinating. The day was made longer by delays in picking up from hotels and the changer to other buses. The bus was small and cramped for the long day.
Gallipoli is incredible and well worth the long trip from Istanbul. The included lunch was lovely and overlooked the water. The tour guide at Gallipoli was very friendly and informative. The only negative was the delays caused by stopping in three different places on the trip. One was for a 45-minute break, about an hour after we left Istanbul. The second break was after the afternoon at Gallipoli. We were returned to the restaurant where we had lunch and told the wait there would be around 45 minutes - however we could buy our dinner there! Around 90-minutes later we had another break at a retail outlet and food shop for another 45-minutes or so. We definitely got the sense that these additional stops were designed for the "tourists" to spend.
