Full description
Take a trip into the past on a full-day tour of Gallipoli from Istanbul, traveling by air-conditioned minibus to the battlefields and war memorials of the ANZAC campaign of the Battle of Gallipoli during World War I.

Depart Istanbul early in the morning, stopping en route for refreshments. Upon arrival on the Gallipoli Peninsula, your tour will focus on the ANZAC sector of the infamous battlefields. Stop at 11 different points of interest to learn more about the fateful events of the Australian and New Zealand troops, including ANZAC Cove where the troops first landed and set up base.

Go to Beach Cemetery, where many of the soldiers who died during the Battle of Gallipoli were buried. Pause to reflect at the Lone Pine Memorial, one of 5 memorials on the peninsula that commemorate servicemen of the former British Empire killed in the campaign but who have no known grave. Visit the battlefields of The Nek and Chunuk Bair, where experienced guides will paint a picture that brings the war to life.

Then, return to Istanbul by comfortable 25-seat minibus for a hotel drop off and the end of the tour services.

Excellent tour, would recommend.

This is a very worthwhile tour. A very peaceful and beautiful place for the soldiers to rest in peace. Our guide Burak was excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate and he delivers the information very well. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the pick-up arrangement. Get your Guide send an email saying you will hear directly from the company re the pick-up time but tell you to be ready for 5:45 so we were, our pick-up was at 7pm, I should have emailed the day before to check in retrospect, but it would have been nice to hear from Crowded House Tours directly to confirm this.

The tour guide was awesome and spoke with passion. These people are the ones that keep the story alive. Burat (I'm sure that's how you spell it) is a great man who loves his difficult questions. Definitely go on this tour but take lots of water. if I was to do it again I would go back to Istanbul the next day as it's a long day but that fit into the timeframe that I had.

The tour guide once we got to Anzac Cove was exceptional. His knowledge on the Gallipoli campaign was second to none and thoroughly enjoyable. Unfortunately the bus trip from Istanbul was anything but. The bus seating had little to no leg room. At least half of the passengers had to put their legs into the walkway as it was too sore & uncomfortable to sit straight. For a 4-5 hr trip there & 4-5 hr back plus on and off the bus 5-6hrs during the tour, is far from ideal. The last stop for self purchase dinner was totally hopeless & I would suggest they find a different place to stop for dinner. For such a long trip & lots of other buses stopping there, the diner was totally not setup to serve large numbers and the food was average at best. Hopefully you can take this feedback on board as constructive and positive with the aim of improving the service & quality of the tour for future tourists:)
