2 DAY ANZAC DAY TOUR: 24rd April - 25th April
Day 1 - 24 April 2017
Check in - Istanbul
Own arrangements to Istanbul. Check in with PP Travel Rep at Cheers Hostel at 6:30am, we then depart for Gallipoli, stopping along the way so you can have some breakfast before our arrival at the cove. On the tour to Anzac Cove you learn of the fate of over 10,000 Australians and New Zealanders. We visit the memorial sites at Anzac Cove, Shrapnel Valley, Conkbay Hill, Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair as well as other cemeteries as time and conditions permit. Our tours aim to show the entire Gallipoli Peninsula, including the British landings at Cape Helles, helping you obtain a thorough knowledge of this ill-fated campaign. You then have the opportunity to secure your spot for the dawn service as we drop you at Anzac Cove around sunset giving you plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and witness first hand the Anzac spirit and comraderie as you meet thousands of other Aussies and Kiwi's who are also here on the same pilgrimage. You will want to bring sleeping bag and warm clothes as it gets very cold in the early hours.
Note: Our tour of Gallipoli is subject to road closures by the Turkish authorities.
Day 2 - 25 April 2017
Gallipoli - Memorial Service - Eceabat or Istanbul
This special day starts very early for the dawn service. It is a good idea to bring sleeping bag and warm clothes, as it can get very cold in the early hours. After the Dawn Service you are free to attend the Australian Memorial Service at Lone Pine and the New Zealand Memorial Service at Chunuk Bair. We leave the Anzac area after these services are completed - probably late afternoon - and drive back to Istanbul arriving late evening. No accommodation is provided this evening.
