We started off a bit unsure about this tour as we weren't actually given any information about what was happening until we got to lunch in Gallipoli and met our tour guide. Up until then we were simply picked up and driven down there with some stops along the way. But once the actual tour part of the day kicked off it was great! Our tour guide was full of information about both the ANZAC and Turkish sides of the Gallipoli battles, and the next day was also very informative about Troy. The accommodation overnight was fantastic, and included meals were delicious. The bonus Istanbul tour was a great way to to all the key sights in one day. This is a great tour if you're short on time in Turkey and want to see some highlights.
I did this tour back in November. The one day sightseeing tour was very informative. My tour guide was Hakan. He was kool and chill. He explained everything in detail and was very knowledgeable about stuff. I told him i was interested in how they made carpets and he took me to a spot. I also wanted some spices and tea. He knew just the right place. Then i told him i wanted to visit the Asian side of Turkey. He directed me how to get there and purchased the ticket for me. I would gladly recommend this tour and Hakan to anyone.
Troy and Gallipoli - this was ok. I didn't like fact you had to wait till the next day for the Troy tour which started till at 1P.M. I feel that's a waste of a day because then you have to get back to Istanbul, which is a good 5-6 hour drive. So that was a downer. However, the hotel that the tour people provided me to stay in was exceptional The Kolin Hotel. The actual Troy tour was very interesting. The guide was great. I think he has his own books about the place, and he has his own souvenir shop. The Gallipoli tour was intriguing. I learned a lot there. I forgot the tour guide's name Mohamed, i think, but he was lively and knew his history. Besides the Troy tour being at what i feel is an odd time, everything else was good.
