    We arrived at Istanbul airport on 3 August. We had booked previously a private daily Gallipoli tour with Toursce travel and when we got off the plane about 6 am, our driver was waiting for us. We drove to Gallipoli peninsula via Tekirdag. Our local tour guide was waiting for us in Eceabat town in Gallipoli. Our Gallipoli Anzac and Cape Helles tour started on arrival in the area. This was the beginning of an excellent and very professional trip and a truly emotional experience in visiting the Anzac Cove and all it entailed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Turkish culture and history and answered all our questions in excellent English. We stopped at Eceabat town for a pleasant lunch and then we were off to the battlefields. We were given plenty of time to wander the area, from Brighton Beach to Anzac Cove along the seafront, to view the trenches, cemeteries, and memorials as we stopped along the way. The local tour guide had a good understanding of the events and gave us some interesting insights. We left the Gallipoli war area in a somewhat sombre mood but very glad that we had made the long travel to view it. We had seen photos and seen the Anzac Day services at Gallipoli on TV many times home, but nothing can compare to being here and understanding what the Anzacs were up against. We were also too much impressed as to how well the Turkish authorities looked after the graves and with much respect to all soldiers irrespective of their nationality. We arrived safely back at our hotel at about 11.30 pm in Istanbul. Very tired, but very happy with all aspects of the private tour to Gallipoli.
