Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Day 1: Istanbul – Gallipoli – Çanakkale (L)Early in the morning, meet your guide in central Istanbul and hop aboard your comfy coach for a voyage to Gallipoli’s historic battlefields. Along the way stop briefly for a quick bite to eat (own expense).

After about a four hour journey, arrive in Gallipoli and learn about the long and dreadful WWI campaign fought here between the Ottoman Turks and Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). ANZAC, who was a member of the Allies, followed orders to sack Constantinople, but were met by a surprisingly determined Ottoman Turk army who battled them to a standstill. Hear about the thousands who fell in Gallipoli during nearly eight months of fighting as you walk with your guide through this historic site. 

Begin your walking tour exploring the most interesting battlefields and observing quaint memorials which are visited by many foreigners every year. See the most poignant Australian memorial site - Lone Pine. Then stroll to the trenches of the Nek while learning about the soldiers who attacked from the nearby forest. 

Next, head to Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial and discover a rare battleground where Allied troops were triumphant, but only for a short period. Continue to ANZAC Cove, where most battles were fought, and pay your heartfelt respects to the troops who died here. Then, stroll through Ari Burnu Cemetery and see where 200 servicemen lay forever. Observe more memorials at Beach Cemetery, Brighton Beach, and the somber trenches at Johnson’s Jolly.

Stop for lunch about midway through your tour and enjoy plenty of opportunities for leisure time to continue sightseeing on your own. Then, meet your guide at a predetermined time and drive to your accommodation in central Çanakkale where you will have more free time.

Lodging: 3-star Büyük Truva Hotel or Grand Anzac Hotel in central Çanakkale

Day 2: Çanakkale – Troy – Istanbul (B, L)After breakfast depart from your hotel with your guide and head to Nusrat minelayer and Cimenlik Castle. Start the day with a walking tour and learn how Troy evolved from a series of small villages and became a Bronze Age dwelling only to fall as a Byzantine town. With your guide, hear about the ancient history of Troy and the Greek mythology of the Trojan War, a 10-year war started by the Trojan prince (Paris) who took off with Zeus’ daughter (Helen). Admire these historical ruins and then see the timber built Trojan Horse, the town’s icon. Afterward, spend some free time snapping photos and walking around.

Next, head to lunch at a restaurant nearby, before continuing through one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, the 4,000 year old ancient city of Troy. Learn how Troy is thought to be the first place where people connected from the Mediterranean region and Anatolia (ancient Asia). Finally, hop back on your coach and return to your Istanbul lodging where your tour ends in the late evening.
Itinerary
Gallipoli Battlefield
Leave central Istanbul, and then travel by coach to the battlefields of Gallipoli. Your pickup time is early, so, if you’ve not had breakfast, enjoy a quick food stop just after leaving the city (own expense). After roughly four hours on the road, arrive at the historic site where one of the most brutal and lengthy campaigns of WWI was waged. On April 25, 1915, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps followed Allied orders to mount an attack with the aim of capturing Constantinople. The attack was met with unprecedented resistance from the Ottoman Turks and the campaign dragged out for some eight months, with thousands of fatalities. As you walk about the area, learn all about the key battles that took place and see several poignant memorials that are visited by people from all over the world. Visit Lone Pine — Australia’s main memorial site — and explore the trenches of the Nek while hearing about the troops that stormed the surrounding woodland. See Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial, one of the rare sites that Allied troops captured for a short time, and pay your respects to fallen soldiers at ANZAC Cove where some of the most significant Gallipoli battles took place. Walk around Ari Burnu Cemetery where more than 200 servicemen are buried, and see other touching memorials including Brighton Beach, the Beach Cemetery and the trenches at Johnson’s Jolly. Your day at the site includes ample free time for independent sightseeing, plus lunch in a restaurant halfway through your tour. After exploring, travel to your hotel in central Çanakkale, and then spend your evening at leisure.

Troy (Truva)
Check out of your hotel after breakfast, we will be visiting Cimenlik Castle and Nusrat minelayer. On a walking tour of the site, learn of Troy’s history and of its development as a series of settlements. Hear how it originated as a Bronze Age dwelling, and even a had stint as a Byzantine town before falling into a state of ruin. Troy is also famous for its links to the Trojan War, the Greek mythological story of the Trojan prince (Paris) who ran away with Zeus’ daughter (Helen) and sparked the 10-year battle. After exploring the ruins, visit the wooden Trojan Horse, which symbolizes the town, and enjoy free time to take photos at leisure. Before starting your journey back to Istanbul, enjoy a break for lunch in a local restaurant, and then pass through the ancient city of Troy, roughly half an hour away. One of the world’s most famous archeological sites, Troy dates back around 4,000 years and is believed to be the city where the first contact between Anatolia (ancient Asia) and the Mediterranean region was made. Then, relax on the journey north, and finish with a hotel drop-off in central Istanbul in the late evening.

Do the two day tour!
William_B
, Mar 2020
Both days had very knowledgeable and experienced guides. Highly recommend you do the two day tour; many of my fellow group members signed up for only one day and lamented the 4.5 hour drive from Istanbul, the 4 hour tour (Gallipoli or Troy) then 4.5 hours back to Istanbul on the bus. Go for the two day tour and see both! Plan for windy weather in Troy (on average 280 days per year).

Gallipoli was amazing and well worth the trip down! We also enjoyed our night over at Canakkale, what a nice town, and the accommodation was fine. The trip was very long and wouldn’t recommend it for a one day trip, however with the night stop over was very manageable. The Troy tour was quite short in time and not as well put together as the Gallipoli tour, I don’t think we would have been happy had we only booked for the one tour, but Gallipoli really saved it. All tour guides were great. Overall would recommend

Great trip with Noursedah (spelling?) and driver Mustapha. We had a smooth trip to Gallipoli and learnt a lot while there. The maritime museum in Canakkale was very interesting and well laid out. This morning we explored Troy, which was amazing. Excellent meals, guide and driver.

Disconcerting never given an itinerary for an advertised tour or direct email contact. I think the added Troy tour was tacked together. Gallipoli is a must. Quite well done. Being pushed out the bus and the hotel direction pointed out, mmmmm. Cannikale an unexpected gem. Tour in city great. Troy don't

I read the Iliad and the Odyssey more than a hundred years ago, when I was still a kid and I used to daydream of visiting these places which at that time seemed unreal and out of reach. I put them on my bucket list. I am happy to report that I am glad I visited those places. I wish I would have done it when I was younger so that I could tell stories at work and during my presentations. This is a must see.

This was an excellent tour. Going for two days with an overnight was rewarding and less exhausting than a one day tour. The guide was thorough and respectful of each travellers needs. We appreciated the respect Turkey has given to the ANZAC concept. Being from Australia this is very important to us. We also appreciated the knowledge we gained of the Turkish point of view.
