    We did the guided day tour to the Gallipoli WW1 area from Istanbul and had a great time! It’s about 4,5 hours down to Eceabat town in Gallipoli peninsula in a tour minivan with a 30 minute stop halfway. We are used to long drives so we didn’t find it hard. Just slept most of the way, even during the 30-minute halfway stop 🙂 We met up with other tour participants of the tour group when we arrived and had lunch first. Then we met our local tour guide and did a very detailed tour of the Gallipoli sites! We stopped at lots of different points included Anzac Cove, Lone Pine, The Nek, 57th Memorial, and finished at the top of Chunuk Bair. An intriguing insight into WW1. Coming from England, we knew next to nothing about the Gallipoli campaign as we focus more on the western front and on WW2 in schools so found this incredibly fascinating. Would definitely recommend it and the local tour guide was excellent.

    It was truly an amazing experience in the Gallipoli campaign! The tour company and local tour guide provided an informative and highly professional experience. We left this trip knowing so much more about the Anzacs campaign. Remembering the Anzac spirit was the best. Highly recommended!

    My family and I joined the Gallipoli tour from Istanbul. We added an additional night to spend in Gallipoli after booking the day trip, spent two days a night bus done only Gallipoli trip. ​Everything was a wonderful experience of Gallipoli. It was organised by Coskun from Toursce Turkey runs with the website of http://www.toursce.com The trip was organised well and the transportation vehicle was enough good. Picked up was on time from our hotel, guiding was so good value and we enjoyed the trip. We made a reservation online, we had doubts, but it was all unnecessary. We were talking with Coskun on whatsapp any time we need. I highly recommend it to everyone. Enjoy your discovery Turkey.

    Considering the long drive up and back from Istanbul, we are so glad we did the tour. The driver was safe. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the world war. His stories on the Anzacs were so easy to understand to the layperson. Recommend this trip especially to Aussies & Kiwis if you are in Istanbul. However, be aware of the drive for a day trip to Gallipoli for some 4.5 hours and bring water.

    It was an outstanding private tour to Gallipoli for the price. I have served in the Australian army for 34 years and have studied the Gallipoli war for many years. To actually see and walk along some of the ground was amazing. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging because WWI and Gallipoli were your guide’s specialties. I would thoroughly recommend it, the outstanding tour.
