Itinerary
Stop At:  
Gallipoli
Your tour includes round-trip transport from Istanbul, together with a tour of Gallipoli on Day 1 and an included dinner and one night's accommodation at a 5-star hotel in nearby Çanakkale. On Day 2, your tour includes breakfast at your hotel, an excursion to ancient Troy, and an afternoon free in Çanakkale before your return to Istanbul in the evening. Day 1: Istanbul – Gallipoli – Çanakkale (L, D)Leave your hotel on the European side of Istanbul in an air-conditioned coach, and travel toward the Gallipoli Peninsula, the scene of one of WWI’s bloodiest military campaigns. Your pickup time is early, so enjoy breakfast (own expense) during a brief stop just outside the city. After roughly four hours, arrive at Gallipoli, where memorials still testify to the Allied campaign of 1915-1916. On 25th April 1915, soldiers mainly from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on this now-peaceful peninsula to fight the Ottoman Turks and capture Istanbul, known then as Constantinople. The ANZAC attack met with fierce Turkish resistance and the campaign ended when Allied troops were evacuated in January 1916, only after an estimated total loss of 100,000 men across both sides. Visit the main battle sites and memorials as your guide explains the terrible events that marked the campaign. See the Turkish and Allied trenches at Johnston’s Jolly and view The Nek, a mountain ridge that presided over a tragic Australian attack. Stand at ANZAC Cove, the beach that saw the first landings, and pay your respects at the Australian Lone Pine Cemetery and Memorial, the latter inscribed with the names of almost 5,000 soldiers without a grave. You'll also visit the New Zealand Memorial at Chunuk Blair, the site of a heroic stand by New Zealander troops. During your tour, take a break for an included lunch at a local restaurant. Then, when your tour ends, travel to your hotel in nearby Çanakkale for an included dinner and the evening at leisure. Overnight: 5-star Kolin hotel in central Çanakkale or similar
Duration: 12 hours

Troy (Truva)
Day 2: Çanakkale – Troy – Istanbul (B)After breakfast at your hotel, set off by coach on your excursion to ancient Troy, roughly 30 minutes away by road. Wreathed in legend, this UNESCO-listed archaeological gem is the location of ancient Troy, a city that many scholars believed, until its discovery in 1793, to have been dreamt up by the poet Homer for the purposes of his great work, The Iliad. The city is best known for the Trojan War of the 13th or 12th century BC, when after a 10-year siege by Greek forces, it fell into their hands after they smuggled soldiers inside its walls hidden within a giant, wooden horse. Gaze in wonder at the crumbled walls and relics as your guide recounts the city's history, including the Greek myth of the Trojan prince (Paris) whose flight with Zeus’ daughter (Helen) triggered the war. You’ll also see the huge, replica wooden horse that stands here to commemorate the city's infamous past. After your explorations, return to Çanakkale and spend the afternoon as you wish. Perhaps have lunch (own expense) at one of the many enticing restaurants, explore the town's other sights, or shop for souvenirs. At around 6pm, board your coach and drive back to Istanbul, where your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in the late evening.

The tour to Gallipoli was very good, unfortunately some of the monuments were being renovated which was disappointing however it didn't detract from the whole thing. The guide was very informative. My accommodation for the night was 5 star all the way, meals were delicious and the service of all was great. The 2nd tour to Troy was also very informative however very rushed. I was ok because I had 2 days but it is a long bus ride from Istanbul and the Troy tour was over in less than 2 hours. Our guide hurried us through with only time for quick photos, yet we had spare time at the end. Time which could have been used to take more in as we walked through the town. It was very hot and I felt that he wanted to get out of the sun but considering that will probably be my only time there, I could stand the heat.

I really enjoyed this tour, and we had a good amount of time at Gallipoli. This was a very moving place. Our guide even helped me to find my relatives names on the memorial. The trip to Troy was very interesting and informative. I'm glad I chose the 2 day trip - it is quite a drive from Istanbul.

This tour was excellent, we got to see a lot more than anticipated. The tour collected us right on time, there was 8 of us on the tour all Aussies, we all had a great 2 days. We changed hotels when we returned to Istanbul, they were able to drop us at the new hotel at the airport, with no problems. We can recommend this company 110, the hotel was great, the food included in the tour was good as well.

I was not expecting to see quite so much. Gallipoli was very comprehensively covered and very moving. There is so much more to Troy than I thought there would be. You need a bit of patience because the logistics are quite complicated. Take the boat trip but avoid the Kolin hotel, very poor forr a five star.
