Full description
Travel back to the dark days of World War I and learn about the Gallipoli Campaign of 1915, when western Allies launched a massive attack on the beaches of the Gallipoli Peninsula, leading to the loss of thousands of lives.

Following a transfer from your hotel in Istanbul, journey across the Dardanelles to Eceabat on the eastern shore of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Visit the Kabatepe War Museum inside the Gallipoli Historic National Park to learn about the defining moments of the campaign and the involvement of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).

Continue to Beach Cemetery, site of John Simpson´s Grave, one of the best known of the Anzac soldiers. Then, go to Anzac Cove where the Australian and New Zealand troops set up base during the campaign. See the 1st Anzac landing site at Ari Burnu, and pay your respects to fallen Australian soldiers at Lone Pine Cemetery. See some of the original trenches at Johnston´s Jolly, where unidentified soldiers were buried after the Armistice.

Soak up the views of Shrapnel Valley and its Judas tree. Then, go to the Turkish Memorial to remember the many Turkish soldiers that also lost their lives. Continue to The Nek on the Anzac battlefields, and go to Walker´s Ridge, a small cemetery located near Suvla Bay.

Finally, pay your respects to the fallen New Zealand soldiers at Chunuk Bair, the main memorial for New Zealand’s Anzac troops, before your return transfer to Istanbul.
