I and my girl friend had the pleasure of taking the Gallipoli day tour from Istanbul with Toursce company, and it was an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about the history of the Gallipoli Peninsula, which made the experience all the more memorable. The journey from Istanbul to Gallipoli was smooth and comfortable, and the beautiful Turkish countryside along the way was breathtaking. Upon arrival, we visited the ANZAC Cove, where we learned about the significance of this site in World War I. We also explored the trenches and tunnels of the battlefield, which gave us a real sense of what life must have been like for the soldiers who fought there. One of the highlights of the tour was visiting the Lone Pine Australian Memorial and the Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial, both of which were incredibly moving and a testament to the bravery of the soldiers who fought in the Gallipoli campaign. Throughout the day, our guide provided us with fascinating insights and stories about the battles and the soldiers who fought there, which added depth and meaning to the experience. Overall, I would highly recommend the Gallipoli Day Tour from Istanbul with ToursCE to anyone interested in exploring the rich history and cultural significance of this important World War I site.

A very moving day out at Gallipoli war area. Our guide was a brilliant man full of very knowledgeable stories and a very nice character that made a long day on the tour bus very enjoyable. Thanks to all the team for contributing to what was a very moving day. We were a New Zealander and Australian group so I very much recommend this Gallipoli day trip.
Gallipoli is a good 4 hours drive without stops from Istanbul, so not great for a day tour with so much to see. We stayed locally and had time for a decent look around at some of the 1st World War battlefields sites and military cemeteries in the area. On the peninsula, there was a nice wind which was helpful in the heat. A must visit if in area, its a long way but brilliant.
This is a great option for those wanting a day trip to Gallipoli. This tour has all the key sites at the Gallipoli war area and the transport logistics are taken care of. The tour guide is informative and relatable. If you make yourself familiar with the history of this big WW1 battle, you will understand and mourn the loss of many Australians, Turkish, and New Zealanders’ youthful soldiers. Be aware though that the bus journey is 5-5,5 hours each way depending on where your hotel pick up is at so it’s a very long day. So if you have more time maybe stay overnight and join 2 days tour option with Troy tour. Highly recommend this tour company.
