Enjoyed a day tour of Gallipolli through Crowded House tours. Bullent ( Bill) was one of the best tour guides I have had on any tour. He was insightful and gave a great historical background from both sides of the battle. We stopped at about 6-7 different sites and I felt like the tour duration of about 4 hours was... More

Crowded House picked us up from the hotel at 6am and safely and comfortably drove us to Gallipoli. We were then treated to a very knowledgable and balanced discussion about the Gallipoli campaign. Our tour guide was happy to answer all our ANZAC related questions and had numerous facts on each site we visited. We were safely dropped back in... More

The Gallipoli battlefields are going to be a destination for many people during the WW1 centenary commemorations. The visit is worth every moment; reflect on the sacrifices, commemorate the losses and the waste of life. Give thanks for the courage shown by all sides. May those who perished - from every nation involved - rest in peace. Pay the extra,... More

We had a well-organized, comfortable, and very informative tour with Crowded House, going to Troy via the ferry from Eceabat to Canakkale. Our guide "Zuzu" (Zumaya) was just a gem, friendly, very well informed, and had even done archaeological field work there as a student. She loves to interact with the tourists, and is really excited when visitors display knowledge... More

From beginning to end I couldn't fault this professional tour company. Our tour started with an on time pick up from our Istanbul hotel and ended with an efficient return the next night. The tour of the battle sites was enjoyable. Bulent (Bill) gave us an extremely accurate and un biased view of the campaign. Our tour on the second... More

To hear a tour from a Turkish side was something that you will never forget. Bill was so informative and explained it in a way that is respectful to both sides. My tip would be don't try and do the bus from istanbul, the tour and bus back in the same day. it would make it too long. We stayed... More

I emailed them and they gave great info about what the tour involved and the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour and Adem our guide was fantastic. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about the area, but also very easy to get along with. You also made my day when at the end of the trip you presented Dean with a cake for his birthday .

Or as we learned it from our helpful and cheery guide, Sucru from Crowded House, ' tea sugar Eddy your room'!! To help us say ' thank you' in Turkish. Sucru was our driver/guide from Eceabat to Selcuk with stops at Troy and Bergama. We advised him that we wanted the highlights tour, not the blow by blow of every... More
