Itinerary
Gallipoli Battlefield
Leave Istanbul and travel by air-conditioned coach to the Gallipoli Peninsula. After approximately four hours on the road, arrive at the historic WWI battlefields in Gallipoli where the brutal and lengthy battles raged towards the end of the war. On April 25, 1915, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) followed Allied orders to mount an attack with the aim of capturing Constantinople. The attack was met with fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turks and the fatal fighting lasted for roughly eight months. Walk around the Gallipoli battlefields and learn of the key fights that took place while discovering the poignant memorials, visited by people from all over the world. Stop to visit the Australian memorial site of Lone Pine and explore the trenches of the Nek. See Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial, one of the few sites that Allied troops captured, and pay your respects to lost soldiers at ANZAC Cove where some of the most significant Gallipoli battles took place. Stroll around Ari Burnu Cemetery, and see other stirring sites including the Beach Cemetery, Brighton Beach 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. Travel to your hotel in central Çanakkale after your tour, and then spend your evening at leisure.

Troy (Truva)
After breakfast, travel with your guide to the ancient city of Troy, approximately half an hour away. One of the most famous archeological sites in the world, Troy dates back some 4,000 years and is thought to be the city where contact between Anatolia (ancient Asia) and the Mediterranean region was first made. On a walking tour, hear stories about Troy’s history and of its development as a series of settlements. Having started out as a Bronze Age dwelling, Troy enjoyed a stint as a prosperous Byzantine town before falling to ruin. The city 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. Explore the ruins, and then visit the wooden Trojan Horse, a symbol of the town. Before returning to Istanbul, enjoy a break for lunch in a local restaurant. Then, relax on the journey north, and finish your 2-day experience with a drop-off in central Istanbul in the evening. Overnight: no Istanbul accommodation is included on this night. Make your own arrangements for your Day 2 overnight stay

I did this tour back in November...
Ralph P
, Dec 2017
I did this tour back in November. The one day sightseeing tour was very informative. My tour guide was Hakan. He was kool and chill. He explained everything in detail and was very knowledgeable about stuff. I told him i was interested in how they made carpets and he took me to a spot. I also wanted some spices and tea. He knew just the right place. Then i told him i wanted to visit the Asian side of Turkey. He directed me how to get there and purchased the ticket for me. I would gladly recommend this tour and Hakan to anyone. Troy and Gallipoli - this was ok. I didn't like fact you had to wait till the next day for the Troy tour which started till at 1P.M. I feel that's a waste of a day because then you have to get back to Istanbul, which is a good 5-6 hour drive. So that was a downer. However, the hotel that the tour people provided me to stay in was exceptional The Kolin Hotel. The actual Troy tour was very interesting. The guide was great. I think he has his own books about the place, and he has his own souvenir shop. The Gallipoli tour was intriguing. I learned a lot there. I forgot the tour guide's name Mohamed, i think, but he was lively and knew his history. Besides the Troy tour being at what i feel is an odd time, everything else was good.

We started off a bit unsure about...

We started off a bit unsure about this tour as we weren't actually given any information about what was happening until we got to lunch in Gallipoli and met our tour guide. Up until then we were simply picked up and driven down there with some stops along the way. But once the actual tour part of the day kicked off it was great! Our tour guide was full of information about both the ANZAC and Turkish sides of the Gallipoli battles, and the next day was also very informative about Troy. The accommodation overnight was fantastic, and included meals were delicious. The bonus Istanbul tour was a great way to to all the key sights in one day. This is a great tour if you're short on time in Turkey and want to see some highlights.
