An American at Anzac...and Helles....and Sulva...and Kum Kale
paź 2020
I am an American who is deeply interested in history and found myself with some time to visit a place I’d always wanted to see, but never thought I’d have the opportunity. I booked a four-day private tour to the Gallipoli battlefield sites with Crowded House Tours and Ramazan Altunas. My guide was Bulent “Bill” Yilmaz Korkmaz. I had read several books on the Gallipoli campaign before visiting, and had the luxury of time, so I knew I wanted to do a deliberate, in depth tour of the battlefields. I booked the trip about three months ahead of time, and Mr. Altunas worked with me to arrange a schedule of what I wanted to see, while Bulent put boots on the ground to make it happen. Bulent took me to the most important sites, but also to many that were off the beaten path. Bulent truly was able to put me in the place where the events happened, giving me the context and a sense of place that comes from someone born and raised in the area and with a broad knowledge of its’ history. Spending most of our time walking, it gave one time to discuss what we were seeing and appreciate what the soldiers on both sides must’ve experienced, if even to a very small degree. Bulent may be the best battlefield guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I highly recommend him (bulentbill@yahoo.com or yilmazbulent@hotmail.com).

Day #1 – Anzac Cove. Here we were dropped at Anzac Cove and spent some time walking the beach, comparing the current geography to vintage photographs. Then it was up Shrapnel Alley to Plugge’s Plateau, Russell’s Top, Walker’s Ridge, The Nek, Lone Pine, Chunuk Bair Memorial and everything in between. We finished up with a hike from Chunuk Bair down Rhododendron Ridge to the NZ Cemetery. It was a long and challenging hike, which was unsurprising given the elevation changes – which anyone who has read the histories will appreciate with significant slopes, but well worth it if you want to see one of the most famous preserved WWI battlefields. The area is surprisingly compact, but it is a challenging hike due to the elevation changes.

Day #2 – Helles. While Anzac consisted of a long days’ hike, Helles necessitated a little bit more “in and out” of the tourist van because the sites are further removed from one another. Nevertheless, we were able to get some good walking views of the major sites at S, V, W & X beaches. We also saw the French and Turkish memorials, Achi Baba Hill and Alcitepe Village and the delightful local museum there.

Day #3 – Sulva. This battlefield is even more spread out that Helles, yet because of the nature of the terrain, we were able to spend most of the day walking the fields of Sulva. This included C Beach, W Hills, Scimitar Hill, the Anafarta Villages and some of the Turkish gun emplacements.

Day #4 – Asian sites. On my last day in the Gallipoli area, Bulent and I visited the sites in Kum Kale, sites of British and French raids, as well as Turkish gun positions. We saw the cemetery where the Turkish trenches still scar the land. Finally, we saw one of the restored Turkish forts on the way back into Canakkale.

My trip was in mid-October and the weather was perfect. We had a little light rain for about 15 minutes on one day. Otherwise, it was warm and pleasant.

Bucket List Pilgrimage
kwi 2019
In early April my Trafalgar Tour took us to Gallipoli. Our guide knew how much it meant to the Aussies on board so he spent quite a lot of time enlightening us (and the non Aussie tourists) on what had happened there - a bit different to what I had always heard. When we arrived there was not a human soul to be seen but a couple of stray dogs greeted us and then went to sleep. Our guide suggested that we Aussies go down on the beach and just sit in the peace - and take a pebble to remember. It was a very moving experience and was so much better than if we had to share it with multitudes of tourists or other pilgrims. It will never be forgotten.

Must do for Australians interested in History
lis 2019 • Znajomi
This battle field is surprising small. The compact size does not dismiss the intensity and emotional impact of a visit. The package guides did a good overview of Anzac Cove in 4 Hours, but to get the full experience of Capes Helles, and more time to walk the hills, we would suggest a private guide and one full day extra. It can be hot, and be prepared to climb a lot of steps to see the best observation points. The Nek and Lone Pine cemeteries are emotionally charged if you research the details. Do not forget to spend time at the Turkish monuments and cemeteries

So emotional
paź 2019 • Pary
Have wanted to go to Gallipoli since I was a child. It was always on my bucket list. It hard to comprehend that this was a battlefield that killed thousands of men for nothing. All I’ll say is it’s a must do if in Turkey if your and Aussie or Kiwi.

Very moving
paź 2019 • Pary
Although well endowed with the most fabulous coastline, the Dardanelles straits and scenery, Gallipoli is chiefly known for its grim military history.
In April 1915 Winston Churchill, during WW1, devised a plan to deploy allied troops there, mainly Australian, New Zealand and British, with the expectation of eradicating Turkey from the war.
It was a dismal failure which led to mass casualties and deaths.
The battlefields, trenches and cemetery’s here are moving and numbing.
The soldiers killed, around 130,000 I believe, we’re mostly 18-20 years of age.
The day of the first landings, April 25th, are celebrated as ANZAC day.
We tried to book a tour the day before but there was nothing available-it’s impossible to do on your own !
We got the ferry from Çanakkale, then hired a private taxi to take us around. The cost was 220tl (just around £30)
Do not miss if you are in this area of Turkey 🇹🇷

Real 1915 shells unearthed on Helles Bay Tour
wrz 2019
I booked with Bazaar (Istanbul) who contracted me to Crowded House. All aspects of the trip we well organised and unravelled like clock work. There was no stress at all. Although the Anzac Tour was fantastic, so was the history behind the Helles Bay and Krithia Tour (being as my 2nd Great uncle landed on W Beach). My tour guide (historian) pulled shells from the ground and gave them to me. Therefore the dust still inside the shells is dust from 1915. How about that?

Gallipoli Battlefields with Kenan Celik
wrz 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
There's no shortage of guides for the Gallipoli area but only a handful of them speak English.
Kenan has over 30 years of experience of the area and has guided everyone from Prime Ministers and heads of state to ordinary folk like myself.
You'll get taken to places you'd never find on your own and get a comprehensive tour of the area. There is no way you'll find a better guide.
HINT - take a couple of packets of dog biscuits for all the stray dogs

A must do when visiting Turkey!
wrz 2019 • Znajomi
Cannot recommend the Crowded House Gallipoli tour highly enough. We were picked up from our accommodation in Istanbul on time on the morning of our tour, and after a comfortable bus ride to Gallipoli, we had a delicious local lunch. During the day our tour guide Burak was very knowledgeable, respectful and made the day really interesting - thank you! It was a long day but certainly worth it. If you’re an Aussie or Kiwi and are visiting Turkey, you can’t miss this experience.

A sobering experience.
lip 2019
My wife and I toured the Gallipoli Peninsula and Troy through Turizm Ticaret Ltd. They provided two great guides who shared a wealth of information, particularly about the Gallipoli Campaign.
The whole tour involved a road trip from our Istanbul Hotel, some meals, accommodation at a hotel in Canakkale and our return, by road to our hotel in Istanbul. It was a memorable experience.
