After many hours of research online, we finally settled on Toursce travel to organise our trip to the Gallipoli war area and I am so happy we did it. From the first inquiry, the actual tour booking then the trip everything was managed exceptionally. We were picked up at our hotel in Sisli town and had a smooth journey to Gallipoli. Our tour guide was exceptional and was very knowledgeable, courteous and allowed us plenty of time to explore the Gallipoli war peninsula. Being Aussies, we really appreciated the histories and often at times sad stories of the battle played out in Gallipoli in 1915. Special thanks to Erkan, our tour manager who constantly kept in contact with us throughout the trip booking, and his organization was first rate. Thank you, Erkan, and the team at Toursce travel group. If you are looking for a private tour to Gallipoli, I would highly recommend this travel group company.
I was a solo traveler in Turkey and I joined your Gallipoli tour by private car and guide. I felt so comfortable with my driver and local guide. The driver was so good and the guide was so professional. Thank you for everything.
Hello Kaan, Everything was just perfect and smooth in the trip itinerary. Thank you for your assistance during our Gallipoli day trip. Thank you!!!!
We had an amazing experience on our day tour of Gallipoli. One that we truly will remember for our life. Thank you very much for making our time at Gallipoli such a memorable, educational, and respectful experience.
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.
