My son and I are making a day visit to Gallipoli in mid June from Istanbul.
This will be a once in a life time experience for us, and would welcome any advice on a guide. On the net so far I have only found either very expensive or much cheaper ( poor reviews ) outfits, and would welcome some guidance.

My father was in Gallipoli as a stretcher bearer for the RAMC and Worcestershire Regiment from May 1915 until January 1916. He came home in an appalling state and spent 18 months in hospital, but was so grateful to have survived, and lived till aged 71. Just like so many others, he would never talk about it.
