About Wilusa Travel
Private Tours We recognise the some visitors to Turkey may be travelling under their own steam or want the exclusivity of a tour more suited to their own programme. It may also be difficult to find a regular daily tour during the quiet months (November through March) when visitors are few. We are therefore able to accommodate requests for private guided tours to Gallipoli or Troy, .....

Wilusa arranged for private tours for my wife and I while we traveled to Turkey for the Hellespont Swim this August. In Istanbul, Ali, our guide, took us to visit all the great sites: The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace Museum, Hagia Sophia, the Cisterns, Sultanahmet Squere, Galata Tower and the Chora Museum. Ali was full of great history and knowledge and spoke English very well! I highly recommend Ali in Istanbul as a guide. In Gallipoli we were lucky to have Kenan, a retired university professor, as our tour guide. Kenan is apparently the guide to the stars, having been the guide for Bob Hawke - ex Prime Minister of Australia, as well as Mark Lee - who starred along side Mel Gibson in the Gallipoli Movie!! His knowledge of Gallipoli is encyclopedic and his English excellent. He would give us the background to the area we were visiting and then allow us time to wander and reflect! Great empathy and understanding of our needs as well as providing just enough information. We highly recommend Kenan - if you are able to book him! For Troy, our guide was Hassan. He was again very good with incredible knowledge of the history of Troy and its surrounds. We really enjoyed walking around the cities and the way Hassan built the history for us from the ruins in front of us - really well done! We also loved the Troy museum and enjoyed Hassan just popping in occasionally to add information to what we were looking at. He was unobtrusive but helped us to link all the information together. We also recommend Hassan as a tour guide. Wilusa also arranged our transfers to and from Cannakale with a private driver. He was polite and safe and we recommend him.

Wilusa organised two guided tours for me whilst I was in Canakkale for the Hellespont Swim. TROY: guided by a local historian who has literally lived and breathed Troy throughout his life. Amusing and highly informed. GALLIPOLI: Probably the most informed and comprehensive historic tour I have ever been on. Kenan Çelik is one of Turkey's foremost experts on the Gallipoli campaign and an adviser to many publications and TV programmes. I knew little regarding the campaign but Kenan was remarkable in illuminating this complex story. We spent a full day with him 8.30 to 5pm including lunch All organisation with Wilusa was exceptional and very reasonably priced. In particular Ahmet and Urg deserve special mention for their patience and support.
