Know More about this tour

Your driver will collect you in good time for your 7am departure on the 4.5-hour journey south to the Gallipoli peninsula, the site of a historic battle between Allied forces and Ottoman Turks: enjoy an included breakfast along the way.

Under Allied command, British, French, Australian, and New Zealand forces landed at Gallipoli in 1915 with the aim of invading and capturing Constantinople the city that is now Istanbul. The troops were met with fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turks and the battle dragged on for more than half a year and claimed tens of thousands of lives. Today, the fields of Gallipoli serve as memorial sites for the countless Turks, Australians, New Zealanders, and other allies who lost their lives in the battles.

Visit Anzac cove where some of the most significant battles of Gallipoli took place and learn about the day when Australian and New Zealand troops first arrived at the cove. Walk along the headland, seeing the Ariburnu Cemetery and Memorial, the Canterbury Cemetery, and the ANZAC commemorative site.

Traveling sometimes in air-conditioned vehicle, sometimes on foot, you'll explore key landmarks of the 130-square-mile (330-square-kilometer) site. See Camburnu Castle, Brighton Beach, Bolton's Hill, Clark's Valley, Victoria Gully, White's Gully, Chatham's Post, Quinn's Post, the Nek, Maltepe Hill, Baby 700 hill, and Battleship Hill, where Mustafa Kemal, the founder of modern Turkey, had his headquarters.

Visit cemeteries and memorials, including the Beach Cemetery, the Lone pine cemetery and Memorial, the Walker's Ridge Cemetery, the Chunuk Bair New Zealand memorial and Unknown Soldier's Grave, the Ari Burnu Cemetery, Sergeant Mehmet's Memorial,the Dur Yolcu Ottoman memorial, and more.
