Visit the key sites of the Gallipoli Peninsula, the scene of one of World War I’s costliest military campaigns, on this moving full-day tour from Istanbul. With an expert guide beside you to explain the 1915-1916 Allied campaign — largely undertaken by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) — visit the sites of The Nek, Johnston’s Jolly, ANZAC Cove and Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair; and stop for an included lunch along the way. Enjoy the undivided attention of your guide on this small-group tour, limited to 14 people.

Leave your centrally located Istanbul hotel in the early morning by air-conditioned coach. Then, relax on route to the infamous Gallipoli Peninsula, the site of one of the bloodiest military campaigns of WWI.

As you travel, hear hard-hitting facts from your guide about the failed Allied land campaign that began in April 1915 with landings of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). The ANZACs were expected to beat back Ottoman Turkish forces and capture Istanbul — known then as Constantinople — to help struggling Russian forces. By January 1916, however, the campaign was over, and Allied troops evacuated, with a believed total loss on both sides of 100,000 lives.

After about 5 hours, arrive at Gallipoli for your guided tour of its key sites. Visit ANZAC Cove, the beach of the 25th April landings, and The Nek, the scene of a tragic Australian attack. Spend time, too, at Johnston’s Jolly, where the original Turkish and Allied trenches still stand.

You’ll also view the haunting memorials that remember the dead. Visit the poignant Australian Lone Pine Cemetery and Memorial engraved with the names of nearly 5,000 soldiers, and see the New Zealand Memorial at Chunuk Bair, the site of a heroic New Zealander stand in August 1915.

Your tour includes a stop for lunch in the early afternoon, with your meal included and drinks available at your own expense. At around 6pm, leave the battlefields and relax as you drive back to Istanbul, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: the order of activities as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.

The name means "sacred city", and according to Stephanus of Byzantium the city was given this name because of the large number of temples it contained.

While here you will visit the Apollo Temple competing with Delphi, Monumental Nympheum (a 4th century Basicala) and the Theatre. After visiting the best preserved Necropolis, return to Izmir.
