What people are saying about Gallipoli
The trip totally worth the money paid for it. The overall journey was well organised, there were no unnecessary stops. We were picked up from the hotel in time. The guide (Burak) was really great and his explanations were quite informative. I would definitely recommend the excursion to any person interested in the World War I history. At least I got all the answers I had in my mind answered. Our main driver during the trip (Josh) was great and helpful guy as well. My only complaint concerns our driver on the way back to Istanbul (Ali) who was often using his mobile phone during the driving, which is not safe in my opinion.
Long day but very well worth it. Once we arrived to the peninsular we had a enjoyable lunch then we were split off to our Gallipoli tour withour guide. Burak (freelancer guide) was execptional - his knowledge and information to share was well understood. The aspect to consider this event from the Turkish perspective was really well done, yet he had compassion for both sides and shared the stories of both to really explain this historical event. No bad news here all good and I can only say thankyou to "Crowded House Tours" for a fantastic experience and day.
Visiting Gallipoli has long been something that I have wanted to do to pay homage to our Anzacs and to the Turkish soldiers who fought in this terrible battle. It was long day trip from Istanbul but our guide Burak (whom we met at Gallipoli) was a knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and passionate guide who added so much to the trip. Thank you.
Really well run tour, you can tell they have been doing this daily for years. The guide, Borak, was humorous and incredibly knowledgeable. Definitely a must see for Anzacs.
Even though it is a long day, it doesn’t feel like it, and it was certainly an excellent way to see and hear the Gallipoli stories. Our guide was good (Burkhan)
