Loved this trip as it gave both WW1 and Ancient Greek history. Both guides very good. The hotel I overnighted in was ideal and I had chance to wander round Cannakale that evening and the following morning. The Naval Museum with the fort is a good visit to do on morning before Troy trip!

Good guide with very good English. Hotel Kale in Çanakkale positively surprised. Very nice room with good facilities. In the mid of the centre. Straight to the aperitif. Lively city with young students. Something's going on in the evening.
