Great Anzac Day Gallipoli Tours for the budget conscious!

We did an ANZAC Bravo Tour with Samyeli Tours and met a great bunch of people to boot. Don’t expect more than 3 star accommodation, remembering that 3 star in Australia and 3 star in Turkey are worlds apart. Our tour met all expectations although Troy was on the original itinerary we did not visit and was told that it wasn’t part of our tour.

At times information was vague but the friendly service outweighed the negatives. Support a local company and not pay big bucks to the foreign opposition. Value for money!ShelleyB70Brisbane, Australia

An experience to remember ANZAC Tours Turkey

We were fortunate to be drawn out of the ballot for the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing and chose Samyeli Travel 9 day ANZAC Tour.

The communication before the trip was excellent and despite our flight being delayed by 2 hours they were patiently waiting at the airport to pick us up. Back at the hotel that evening we meet the rest of our group and our guide Semih.

Having been to Turkey before we had an understanding of what to expect in accommodation and food but was hoping for a bit more historical information and we were not let down. Semih apart from being incredibly knowledgeable on the subject he was talking about he was extremely passionate about his country’s history.

Nothing was too much trouble for Semih and he went out of his way to ensure everybody enjoyed their time on the tour.

Our driver Mostafa was excellent not only keeping us safe for the 9 days but despite speaking little English would never fail to s…

High recommendation Anzac Day Tours with Samyeli Travel

My son and I were also successful in the 100th anniversary ANZAC Day ballot — we were the last of the wait listed Australian ballots to be drawn and only had around 5 weeks to arrange a tour to allow us the privilege of being at the Gallipoli commemorative site for ANZAC Day 2015.

Fortunately we came across Samyeli Travel and we were able to join their four day tour from Istanbul for the 2015 ANZAC day commemorations.

These guys were absolutely fantastic in making our trip a wonderful reality and one of the most memorable we have ever had. All staff were friendly and courteous, they promptly and kindly responded to all my many emailed questions, they personally called me in Sydney to confirm arrangements and did everything they could to get us across to Turkey and down to Gallipoli at such short notice.

All transfers were impeccable — they chaperoned us to and from our hotel / airport and personally attended the front desk a…

Australian New Zealand Army Corps

Debra & James Fing,Hi,

The recent Anzac Tour we did was absolutely fantastic. It was the first organised tour we have ever done and we loved it.

One complaint – we didn’t have enough time at the Anzac Cove Museum. There were a lot of diary entries and letters we would have loved to have read, but didn’t have time. Barely had time to take some pics.

Our only complaint.

The rest was wonderful. Our guide Chengis (not spelt right, but pronounced Jengis) was so caring, informative …. just sensational.

Loved it and will definitely recommend you to others.

Battle of Gallipoli

Michelle Hall,Hi Savaş,

I wanted to take the time to write and say what a fantastic holiday I had in Turkey.

I can’t tell you enough how wonderful our guide and driver were. Sedat Kirkan has such an amazing knowledge of Turkey and it’s history – there was no a question he was unable to answer. He always made a conscious effort to ensure that we had the best time we possibly could all throughout our holiday. Our driver Tufan Igel put in some extremely long hours and his driving was outstanding. He was always very professional and courteous. I truly hope that I am lucky enough to have guides and drivers of their calibre when I next travel.

Thank you very much again. All the best for the future.

Gallipoli Anzac Day Tours Turkey , Thank you!

Katie,Hi,

Thought I would give you feedback on the 6 day Gallipoli tour 2006 (bus 9) I found out about the tour through advertising in Gumtree and through search engines

I was really pleased with the tour. Things I was particularly impressed with were: our tour guide Ahmet – he was amazing! the timing of the Turkish Baths upon returning from Gallipoli – they were great also I really liked the thermal resort we stayed at before we went to Gallipoli – the drive was worth it and the food was great I also really enjoyed seeing the local art in the village museum.

The dinner at the fish markets was also good Things that could be improved on: The bus rides are quite long, and it might be nice to have a guitar on board for a sing along to help pass the time Was not too impressed with the showers or water at the Istanbul hotel – Birbey?. The water stopped and came out brown a few times. That was a little gross and scary. And the lights on the stairwell…

Gallipoli Anzac Service

Andrew.

Hi Savaş,

I would appreciate it if you would pass this on to all the relevant people.

Clare and I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone at Samyeli for such an excellent trip.  We would like to make special mention to you and Hasan who were helpful beyond anything we could ask for and we are so grateful.

I have done several tours in my travels, and this was by far the best.  The support provided before the tour and the excellent help starting at the airport and ongoing until we were back in London was exceptional.

Your organisation skills are an asset to the company, and Hasan’s tour management was brilliant.

I will be highly recommending you to anyone else I know interested in Turkey and I wish you all the best with all future tours.

Gallipoli Tour

Cassie Muttdon & Ben TimmsHi Mr Levent,

I just wanted to let you know that our Tour Guide was Levent and he was the most amazing tour guide that we could have asked for! Everyone on Bus 5 enjoyed themselves immensely and it was mostly thanks to Levent.

We found him to be very knowledgeable, humorous and very kind and provided us with interesting facts about Turkey that made our trip worthwhile. Because of Levent we will definitely be recommending Samyeli Travel to our friends for next years ANZAC Day trip.

If you could please pass on our thanks to him, we would be very grateful.

The tour was excellent! Our tour guide – Yigit – was exceptional, he answered all our questions about Gallipoli, the ANZAC’s and Turkish culture in general. And he threw in a few great stories!

Had a fantastic time, especially visiting Gallipoli Peninsula on the 23rd, a very well organised tour! I would definitely recommend Samyeli Travel to others!

Canakkale Turkey

I attended a tour of Gallipoli in 2016 with Travel Talk and this tour was 100 times better because this time tour guide was very competent. Denis was very informative and always knew what he was doing.

Thank you for a great tour. I will recommend.
