Z. Vallance

Overall, this was an absolutely brilliant tour! We had a great group of people on the bus, with a very friendly, helpful and generally excellent tour guide(Sami). Our two bus drivers(Oktay + Nafiz) were both brilliant, getting us around quickly + safely and always happy to stop to suit the tour group. The sightseeing + activities were great, covering all the main essentials that you want to see when visitng Turkey as well as a few extras. Although i booked the trip mainly for the Anzac dawn service at Gallipoli, i really did enjoy all the sightseeing. Anzac day was amazing!
