Istanbul – Gallipoli Tour

Lest we forget

The Gallipoli tour is a must-experience for anyone visiting Istanbul. If you have a spare day, take a detour from the city and spend some time in one of the most sacred places for the Turkish nation.

A genuinely thought-provoking place, the Gallipoli Peninsula held the famous Battle of Gallipoli between the Turks and the Allies, especially the ANZACs (Australians and New Zealanders), on an Allied campaign to conquer Constantinople.

On this tour, you will be guided by our highly knowledgeable tour guide who will provide historical insight from not only the British, Australian, and New Zealander’s perspectives but also from the Turkish perspective. We will visit the key sites of the north bank of the Dardanelles Strait such as memorials, monuments, and significant battlefields.

With such a monumental itinerary selected by our praised guests throughout the years, the long way is worthwhile journeying; made pleasant with breaks and a nurturing, delicious lunch just before the tour begins.
