Decided to do this trip DIY.
Caught the car ferry from Canakkale (Tl35 O/W for car and driver) and drove north via Eceabat ( an alternative ferry port ) and then inland to Kabatepe.
From there I drove along a beautiful cost road visiting Anzac Cove and surroundings. Some of the Cemeteries names gives you pause for thought like SHRAPNEL VALLEY CEMETERY or HELL SPIT CEMETERY.
Doing a self drive allowed me to stop and ponder at leisure.
I drove south taking in a range of other Sights including the Cape Helles memorial ( where I accidentally came across my family name a number of times ) and included a trip up to Abide ( a massive, massive stone monument )
What I particularly liked was the small ( compared to Normandy etc ) Cemeteries mostly located where offensives took place.

Our tour to the Gallipoli fields and memorials were with Kenan Celik organised by Wilusa Travel.
He is the most respected authority on the campaign and has been consulted in numerous books and programmes. He is described by Lonely Planet as 'One of Turkey's foremost experts on the Gallipoli campaign'.
Recommended by the Telegraph and many researchers into this, he offers a balanced account from both the Allied and the Turkish side of this complex and tragic period.

Husband had heard it was interesting - and it was! Manned by young men doing their national service - some grumpier than others! (you have to pay extra to take photographs). It was strange viewing their collection as it was exhibited from the victor's point of view - Gallipoli was Churchill's mistake. Nevertheless, the history of shipping in this important seaway was fascinating - and included a guided tour (in English) of a mine-laying craft which still tours schools in the area.

This ecological center is located on the old Bademli village (formerly known as Gliki) and is a place where not only organic honey is produced and sold but also briefings about apiculture are also given to visitors.
The owner and his wife are both dedicated to teach people about apiculture. They have free sampling for different types of honey and they walk you through the overall beekeeping process. They not only sell honey but also home made jams (from tomato to fig), handcrafts etc. They also have a small, cute treehouse which the children love a lot.
So, don't consider this humble place as a shop only, but rather as an amateurish apiculture center.

All of them are heroes and they deserve great respect. We should also know very well history. Construction of monument lasted more than ten years and was finished with donations. The monument delineates two soldiers with shoulder to shoulder. There was also museum under the monument but it was closed seven years ago. You can sea Aegean and Marmara seas from this monument. There are also Cemeteries here. You should see also unnamed soldier tomb.

Gallipoli was the site of a major battle in World War I and this peninsula, part of the Dardanelles, is still remembered as a major defeat for the Allied Forces—and a springboard for the future Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal. The beautiful, quiet park is dotted with memorials and other features; it is the site of a big annual memorial for the thousands of Australian and New Zealand forces who died here.
High overlooking the beach, and with the graves and inscribed names of so many soldiers who died in the conflict, this is a frequently visited site by Auzzies and Kiwis - but it should be by others too. Hundreds of thousands of casualties on all sides in WWI. Very well tended by the Turkish former adversaries. When we were there in November, we were the only visitors, due to the uncertain political atmosphere and recent terrorist acts in other parts of Turkey. We had a guide and felt safe all the time.

Far more impressive replica of the Trojan horse than the one actually at Troy. This was a prop used in Brad Pitts film on Troy which was donated to the town. Well located on the sea front for photos.

Facility at the place very poor if you expect some comfort by the seaside. Nature is quite alright but wooden sunbaths are a bit uncomfortable if you compare with the price. But you can use your own chairs or towels as many people do on the sands

There are many really well kept CWGC Cemeteries across the Gallipoli Peninsula for those whose final resting places are known, or who are believed to be buried within them. This magnificent memorial commemorates those whose final resting place could not be established after the war, and the many names listed by regiment are a stark reminder to the numbers killed far away from home. It can be seen for miles around and is situated between two of the prominent landing sites where many of those listed died on the first day. Well worth a visit.
