 Peter Hart Battlefield Tours
Peter Hart is acting as guide to a tour of Gallipoli between Monday 1st and Monday 8th June 2015. The administrative details will be handled by Roger Chapman to ensure it is a smooth operation! The draft itinerary is set out below. Maximum of 20 people only - first come first served. The Crowded House at Eceabat is providing our accommodation with overflow accommodation if needed at Hotel Boss just 50 yards away. This is basic backpacker-style accommodation with few frills but it has great en suite showers, decent beds, and is spotlessly clean - at least until we take our boots off! The new outdoor ‘secret garden’ has a wonderful food and bar area. This is a walking tour covering some rough, uneven ground and is only suitable for those people capable of the physical exertion involved in climbing steep hills and walks of up to 3 miles across rough country in a hot climate. Please ask if you have doubts about your health. A few practice walks before embarking on the tour might be beneficial and add to your enjoyment. However you must ensure that you have adequate travel and medical insurance cover for the duration of the tour. We strongly recommend that you and all members of your party be adequately insured as soon as you book your holiday. But you must let us have details of your insurance policy at least four weeks prior to departure. We cannot accept liability where the performance of our obligations with you is prevented or affected, or you otherwise suffer any damage, loss or expense as a result of force majeure. Force Majeure means unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which neither we nor the local operators could avoid, including (but not limited to) war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire flood, adverse weather conditions or the threat of any of these. We will however refund your payment if the tour does not run at all. COST: Single room per person will be £825 COST: Shared room per person will be £725 – (If you wish to take advantage of the shared room option you will need to arrange a sharing partner yourself!) A Deposit of £200 is required to secure a place and the balance owing must be paid by 21st April 2015. This deposit is not returnable in the event of the guest cancelling. However it will be returned if we are able to fill the vacancy. Payment by bank transfer (see details at end) or cheque made payable to Roger Chapman. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that this tour does not include the cost of your air tickets or your Turkish entry visa. Turkey is currently phasing out visas on arrival and so you should apply for an e-visa in advance. See for details. The Tour starts in Istanbul.
