Full description
Travel back to the days of World War I as you explore the war memorials, battlefields, and landing sites of the Anzac Campaign in Gallipoli. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Istanbul, transfer by air-conditioned vehicle across the Dardanelles. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant in Eceabat. Then, continue to Anzac Cove for the start of your afternoon tour of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Learn the story of the fateful campaign as you visit all the most important sites, such as Brighton Beach, the 1st intended landing site for troops of the New Zealand and Australian armies. Go to Beach Cemetery, the most famous of all the Anzac cemeteries, and see the grave of Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick, one of the best-known of the Anzac soldiers. Look at the Anzac Commemorative Site at North Beach, below the sphinx where the dawn service is held on Anzac Day. Take an optional walk to Shell Green Cemetery on the Artillery Road from the shoreline to Lone Pine, site of the main Australian cemetery in Gallipoli. Go to Johnston's Jolly to see where the Turkish and Allied trenches were within 30 feet of each other. Stop at Chunuk Bair to see where the New Zealand troops put up an epic stand on 8 August 1915. At approximately 6:00 PM, depart the Gallipoli Peninsula for the return transfer to Istanbul, stopping for dinner along the way.

Very nice trip. The guide was perfect, passionate and exciting. Small group tour (4 people), which is much friendlier than some full buses we've come across. Only downside on the return to Istanbul, I found myself "dropped" by the driver more than three blocks from my hotel, at night, without him even telling me which direction to take to return.

Really big day. 5 hours there on the bus, 5 hours back. But definitely worth it.
