Hi. We are a group of 35, many of whom are elderly, on a tourist bus from Istanbul to Canakkale. ViaMichelin shows three possible ways, but only two are acceptable to us: the one that passes by the sea of Marmara (by boat mostly I presume) which will take 6hrs./12min; and the one mostly by motorway via Malkara, down to Canakkale with 217 miles altogether in 5hrs/41mins. Just by looking at the figures, we would prefer the one with shorter time. But which is the route often used by tourists,which may mean more convenient, and takes less time? Your advice is appreciated. Thanks. Sincerely, Leo. C.
Hi! We are a pilgrimage group interested in visiting places connected with Saint Paul. We plan to do this in October. We will be using a tourist bus. We plan to leave Canakkale, Turkey at 7 a.m. for Kavala. Since we will pass by the Greek border, how long do you think would be a tourist bus trip from Canakkale to Kavala? We appreciate very much your guidance on this as this will be our first time to do this.Thank you very much. Sincerely, Leo C.
Hi. We are a pilgrimage group planning to make this trip in October. We will be on a tourist bus. We plan to leave Istanbul at 7:00 A.M. and depart for Canakkale with a brief stop in Gallipoli. We plan to have lunch in Canakkale. Our goal is to explore ancient city of Troy, especially the places connected with the visits of Saint Paul. There we plan to celebrate Holy Mass. Then we go back to Canakkale for the overnight stay. May we ask for your critique of this trip? Or suggestions with the amount of time we have. Thank you so much!
Hello, I am leading an educational tour of Greece and Turkey during mid-March. After our visit to Troy, we have an afternoon at the beach scheduled. Will it be warm enough for the beach in March? Would there be other things of interest if the weather did not permit this activity? Thanks, Marilyn
Hi -- we are planning on staying at Canakkale and of course going over to Gallipoli. We are most interested in Anzac Cove and the Salt Lake. If we would like to hike around those areas in one day, what is the best approach? We are not interested in a tour but would rather just like to hike on our own. Thanks!
We are going to come to Canakkale and stay on 9 April and the nextday we want to tour bth sights then head off to Istanbul Which company tours both sites in a day and how much will it cost? Also how much will a bus cost to get us back to the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul? Kind regards, Julia Also we are hoping to travel here by bus from Kusadasi does Truva offer such a service still?
Hi! I may possibly have one extra day on arriving in Canakkale and before returning to Istanbul. Is it possible to go to Cappadocia, see something, and return to Canakkale in one day? I heard there is a night bus. How long does it take? Thanks, Beth
Hi! After crossing the sea of Marmara by kayak this fall I will pass Canakkale before my final day to the lighthouse at Kum Burnu near the ruins of Achilleion. My problem is how to get back to Istanbul. I know there is a plane from Canakkale but is there a bus or train? Is there some kind of transportation from somewhere near the lighthouse to Canakkale? Thanks
