I was able to go on this tour recently with Crowded Tours and it was good. I did the tour from Istanbul and after a long transit to Canakkale, the tour commenced with Burak at Gallipoli. Burak was an excellent guide, who knew the topic at hand and also was very engaging. A bit of a hippy vibe with loads of tattoos, he kept the spirit of the group high throughout. There was lunch included upon arrival at Ecebat and we had an hour off for it. This was before the tour commenced.

This tour is really meant for people who have a vested interest in Gallipoli (mostly ANZACs) and not for the casually curious. I say this because of the long transit times (5HRs x 2) from Istanbul and also for the perspective of the battle's impact on the countries involved in it. If at all possible, I would recommend to do the tour version which covers Troy + Gallipoli with stayover at Troy option. This is a better one and you also get to see Troy in the night light. That option is a 2-day tour with pick-up and drop-off option to Istanbul.

Ms. Funda was very good at communicating and looking after my requirements. More than the tour itself, I enjoyed the time with Mr & Mrs George, Eliza and Peter. I thank them for their company and good time we had. I highly appreciate this tour.

We contacted Crowded House Tours after reading good reviews online. Ramazan was very helpful and assisted us with organising a private day trip to Gallipoli (from Istanbul). The price was very competitive and the day operated seamlessly. The drivers were great and the whole team at the head office (in Eceabat) were very friendly.

Our tour guide for Gallipoli, Bülent, met us after our included lunch (around 12.20pm). He is incredibly knowledgeable about all things Gallipoli and ensured that we had an excellent day. I was able to locate the name of a relative at the Lone Pine Memorial and we also had plenty of time at the 9 different locations we visited around the peninsula.

I am very glad that we went with Bülent as it was a far better experience than if we had self-guided. It was an incredibly interesting day and well worth it!

Would highly recommend a private tour with Crowded House Tours. If we had more time in Turkey we would have definitely used them again to explore further.

Our family of 6 including 4 children under 10 did a one day private tour. We had a great experience which was made even more so by our wonderful guide Bullent (or Bill). He was very knowledgeable and so passionate about the story that it really brought it alive and engaged the children well. We fully recommend this experience and make sure you get Bullent as your guide!!! Thank you Bill!!!

Having lived in Australia for the last thirty years I had heard a lot about Gallipoli but never really understood exactly what happened. Our tour guide really brought history to life starting with the landing at Anzac Cove and ending at the peak of Chunuk Bair that the allies failed to capture. I now have a far better understanding of the horror of this war disaster.

I really recommend this tour if you have an interest in the history of the Gallipoli campaign of WW1. Our guide Burak was great and very informative, he knows alot about the campaign and at each sight gave great details of what happened there. Burak even made the time at the end to take me to a cemetery not on the tour but was of interest as I had a family member killed at Gallipoli who was thought to have been buried there. A good day out!

Did this tour with Burak who has grown up around Aussies his whole life and was an expert guide. On top, everything was professional and well organized- from communication beforehand, to pick up and drop off. Highly recommended!

Last week we went on a tour to Gallipoli, organised through Crowded House Tours and taken by a guide called Burak. He was fantastic. He is so well informed and so friendly. We both thoroughly enjoyed the day. Burak took us to all the main beach sites in the area where the Anzacs landed, explaining in detail what happened at each place. Then we went inland to Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair. We visited the memorials and cemeteries for both the Anzacs and the Turks. Burak had maps, diary excerpts and photographs to share with us. It was both fascinating and enlightening. It was a long day but we were picked up and dropped off afterwards at our hotel in Istanbul and lunch was included. I would like to say a personal thank you to Burak for making this an experience I will always remember. Thoroughly recommended.

Our tour guide, Bülent, was exceptional. His knowledge on Gallipoli was incredible, there was nothing he didn't know. He spoke in fluent English, bringing the tour to life. I will be coming back with a larger party and I will definitely look to go with crowded house (and hopefully Bülent) again.

We did this tour the other day from Istanbul and it was excellent. We were picked up from our hotel by the driver on time and taken in a comfy bus to the tour. Just note Breakfast wasn't included, but we did stop at a place and buy something to eat. Lunch was included and delicious.

From here Burak joined us as our guide and was amazing. Burak clearly knows his stuff, but has an excellent sense of humour! He covers the important details with respect, but makes the whole tirp fun. We had made several stops relevant to the ANZACs but also at one Turkish memorial as well which I thought was great. At the stops you have plenty of time to take photos and take it all in, unlike some other tours we saw.

Overall great tour and recommend it and Burak.

I did the one day tour of the Gallipoli battle fields from Istanbul. The booking was simple by email. The staff excellent. The tour went as advertised. The guide and his methods were easy to understand and gave an Aussie a better appreciation of what we were taught at school.

The down side is the long commute, however the bus is comfortable and the country side interesting.

If you get time before you return, be sure to check out the diorama on the foreshore at Eceabat.
