dah Posted 21 September , 2019 Share Posted 21 September , 2019 I've been asked to take over planning of a 3-guy (all first-timers to the Turkish battlefields) trip to Gallipoli.for late October this year. The plan is to fly into Istanbul, rent a car, drive down to Gallipoli and connect to a guide (?) who can give us a good 1-2 day overview of the main sites. We'd stay in the Gallipoli area for 2 full days (3 nights)....then return to Istanbul where'd we'd be joined by our wives for a further 3-4 days of general Turkey tourism My friends specifically want to avoid the packaged Gallipoli thing where you get on a tour-bus in Istanbul....faff around umpteen hotels to pick people up etc. So.....I'd be grateful for advice on: a) the above plan (maybe you think there's no hassle with certain Istanbul packages to Gallipoli?) b) Any recommendations for guides or guiding companies in the Gallipoli area c) Is a 2-day guided tour necessary - or might we instead just have the guide for 1 full day getting the overview....and then the 3 of us spend Day 2 going back to some of the Day 1 locations on our own? c) Any recommendations on where to stay (3 nights) in Gallipoli area. Luxury not necessary. We'd be v. happy with something adequate (with access to food & a bar)....maybe along the lines of Avril's/Ocean Villas (for those familiar with the Somme experience) All comments gratefully received Thanks in anticipation, David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
