Very well run 2 day tour with Crowded House in Eceabat/Cannakkale. Tour guides had excellent English and knowledge of the areas, and we can highly recommend our small boat trip into Anzac Cove, we had a great afternoon with our driver and skippers, lovely people.. Overnight hotel in Cannakkale was also excellent. Loved it all.
