My trip with Hassle Free Travel was more than hassle free, it was exceptional!

The administration and communication (in fluent English) were outstanding. The transport to and from Istanbul, and on the two tours, was wonderfully comfortable. The hospitality at Helen Hotel was first-rate, specifically the hygiene and cleanliness, important factors currently (Covid). Our base on the Gallipoli peninsula was the Maydos Restaurant, a beautiful establishment overlooking the Dardanelles with easy access to all the battlefields and beaches (and ferries to Canakkale).

The history of the city of Troy, that is nearly 5000 years old, is understandably complex. My guide here (Ercan) is an expert and an avid historian who provided wonderful content and context. Truly fascinating.

The Gallipoli Campaign and its role in World War I and the rise of Mustafa Kemal, was covered in two days. Opa (guide), provided briefings for each day, showed extra information and detail on his tablet, provided uncomplicated detail at each site, and allowed personal space to appreciate where we were. His professional, personalised, and passionate approach was deeply appreciated.

I have no hesitation in promoting and recommending Hassle Free Travel.

This was my first visit to the Gallipoli battlefields. Hanafi made the transportation, food, and lodging arrangements truly "Hassle Free". Arcan, my tour guide was a wealth of knowledge and really helped to paint the picture of the battle as we walked the terrain. He was also great at recommending books and other reference material to learn more about the battle. Day Two was somewhat limited due to the closure of the Naval Museum during the pandemic, but exploring the town of Çanakkale was an enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!

I have just returned from Gallipoli with my family ( husband and 2 adult sons) following a battlefield tour of the Gallipoli peninsula aimed at understanding the campaign in which my Great Uncle was killed in June 1915. Having reviewed the various options available, we decided to book our tour with Hassle Free Tours who are based in Canakkale very close to the battlefields. This proved to be an excellent decision as every aspect of their service was first class and they certainly deserve their 5-star rating. The booking process is straightforward, following which we quickly received clear and helpful information regarding the programme and the arrangements. All subsequent questions were fully and promptly answered and Hassle Free also made every effort to ensure that we were able to visit locations that were relevant to my Great Uncle’s part in the campaign. Their service included a text 24 hours before travelling with a 24/7 number in case of difficulties on arrival. However, we needn’t have worried as we were met, as arranged, at Istanbul airport, and all subsequent transport arrangements were fantastic throughout. Our guide was Ercan who arrived at our hotel each day exactly as scheduled and he proved to be a fantastic guide. Absolutely passionate about all aspects of the campaign, he is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect and answered questions in an extremely helpful way. He was exceptionally flexible with respect to the time spent at each of the locations and went out of his way to ensure that we made the most of the time that we had available. I would wholehearted recommend the use of this company without reservation.

Abdurrahim Boz, and the team from Hassel Free Tours, Canakkale, went above and beyond my requests and expectations. I had specific requests where I wanted to walk, see and experience and Apo made sure he covered all my requests and more! Walking Anzac Cove beach, where ANZACs landed, standing where the Ottoman Empire soldiers stood, hearing explanations of landings, timing, battles and stories of real men, allowed my heart to be enriched by both accounts of this part of WWI history. Thank you Abdurrahim for going the extra mile for my Gallipoli experience.

We enjoyed every aspect of this tour and are pleased we chose to do the three day in depth tour as it's a long way to come and you miss out on so much trying to fit it all into one day. The accommodation and lunches which were included in the tour were excellent. We were also very lucky to have our guide, Apo, to ourselves on the second day which enabled him to customize our tour to what he felt interested us most. He was very good at showing the Turkish side and the Anzac side. We were unsure of exactly what to expect before we left on our trip but Apo and Hassel Free tours exceeded our expectations.

We spent 2 days touring the battlefields, cemeteries and monuments of the Gallipoli campaign with a trip to Troy as a bonus. Standing on the battlefields was a truly sobering experience that was enhanced by the knowledge of our guide Apo. His insights into the history of the area and stories of personal courage and sacrifice on both sides were a highlight. We were lucky enough to be guided around Troy by a local professor of history who has written books on Troy and Gallipoli, so his depth of knowledge was fantastic. A free afternoon in Channakale allowed us to revisit the naval museum and explore the city. A great trip and well worth the cost.

Enjoyed this tour immensely. The transport, meals and accommodation were all excellent. Apo, our Gallipoli guide, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He took us to many places that were well off the normal tourist trails. We came away with a much greater appreciation and knowledge of the Gallipoli campaign. Thoroughly recommend this tour to those who want more than just a quick trip to anzac cove.

All transfers, guides and accomodation from Isanbul to Cannakkale,Gallipoli and Troy were extraordianry. Well organised on time, friendly with first rate knowledge of both areas. Arjon and Mr Mustaffa were brilliant guides whom we have the greatest respect for. Office staff who helped me get a wet shave from the local barber were tremendous and the local barbers were awesome. Great company with brilliant staff who go over and above when it comes to customer service.Fantastic life long memories for my brother and myself.

Our tour guides, Apo and his colleague, whose name I cannot remember sorry, were wonderful. Their knowledge and passion for the history of both the Gallipoli Campaign and the stories and myths that surround Troy are exemplary. They were interesting, compassionate and totally unbiased in the recounting of the WW1 disaster that was the Allies landing on the Gallipoli peninsula. They were insightful, and clearly well informed historically and anecdotally. I enjoyed listening to them enormously.
I was thrilled to see how well cared for the various sites are as well as the and graves of all the brave men who died during those fateful months in 1915.
Thank you to those who tend the cemeteries and keep them so that "our sons are now lying in your bosom and are in peace." that " they have become your sons as well"
The minivans were good and clean. The hotels were good as was the food mostly. The pick up and drop offs were spot on time and the stops well chosen for cleanliness and food choices.
I have longed to do a trip to the Gallipoli peninsula since my Father and Husband went there together 21 years ago. Dad's interest in the Australians at at war has passed to me and now I have been there and paid my respects to all the fallen as well. Troy was also fascinating especially for my Mythology and ancient history interested Daughter.
Thank you very much for everything. I enjoyed the tour very very much.
