59 Reviews

  • Location: Istanbul, Turkey
  • Duration: 16 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3795IST11
A visit to Gallipoli is a moving experience for all visitors to Turkey, particularly for those from the ANZAC nations of Australia and New Zealand. If you are short on time but do not want to miss out on visiting this famous part of the country, a day trip from Istanbul is the perfect option for you.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Step back in time on a history tour
  • Lunch included
Depart Istanbul in the early morning for the drive to Gallipoli (approx. 5 hours). On the way your English speaking host will tell you the history of the ANZACs and prepare you to make the most of your time during your visit. Visit ANZAC Cove, the site of the famous battle between Allied and Turkish troops where heavy casualties were suffered on both sides. See the Turkish and Allied Trenches at Johnston's Jolly. See The Nek, a narrow stretch of ridge in the battlefield on the Gallipoli peninsula and the New Zealand Memorial at Chunuk Bair, site of one of New Zealand's epic stands on the Gallipoli peninsula in August 1915.

There will also be a visit to Lone Pine Cemetery and Memorial named after the solitary pine tree that grew here. The beautiful landscape and quiet atmosphere of the site hides its horrific past. On the memorial you will find the names of 4221 Australian and 709 New Zealand soldiers who have no known grave.

At around 6:00pm you will board your bus for the return journey to Istanbul
