Excellent day trip. Although it's an early start, it's very well organised with plenty of breaks including on the bus journey from and back to Istanbul. The tour guide, Bulant, was very knowledgeable and also shared with us some pictures of the battlefields from during the war whilst explaining each of the sites we went to which helped bring it to life. Was totally worth the journey down from Istanbul especially as it's a very modern comfortable mini bus - only suggestion for improvement would be to switch the break location for the bus journey back as service from the restaurant was slow which delayed the trip back. Nonetheless, made it back to the accommodation in Istanbul by 10pm and it was an unforgettable day.

We joined the Crowded House Tour to Gallipoli- our guide Bulant was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The trip was long but not unmanageable- lots to see on the way and a stop for refreshments etc - lovely lunch supplied - the only thing was we felt abit pushed for time at the last stop being Chunukbair- there is a lot to see there with two monuments to view the Turkish and the New Zealanders but we had to be back to meet up with bus going back to Istanbul

Had an incredible time with Burak (hope i spelled his name correctly!) on our tour of Gallipoli. We were provided in depth history into what happened at key locations. He was incredibly fun and helped answer any questions we had. Just a note though that it is a very long drive to and from Gallipoli, so would recommend if you have more than a few days in Istanbul.

The tour was incredible, the guide excellent. All of the main points of Gallipoli were visited with plenty of time given to absorb what had taken place there.

Shuttle arrived on time to collect us and take us to Gallipoli, guide was friendly and knew all the stories and history of the place
