Our 3 day tour is for anyone getting into Istanbul on 24 April. After meeting in Istanbul we head to Gallipoli for the 25 April Anzac Day services before returning to Istanbul for the traditional game of two-up. A great option for those with limited time in Turkey, we concentrate most of our time at the incredible Gallipoli & Anzac Cove area.

3 Day Tour Overview

After meeting in Istanbul on 24 April we take a guided walking tour of the historic Sultanahmet area and sit down for a late lunch. The tour then departs Istanbul and heads to Gallipoli where we set up at Anzac Cove in preparation for the dawn service. Following the dawn service we head to the Australian service at Lone Pine or the New Zealand service at Chunuk Bair.
