Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Istanbul where you will be met and transferred to our overnight hotel.

Day 2 - Gabatepe and Helles Memorial

Early departure for the four-hour journey to Gallipoli. We have lunch in Gallipoli town, overlooking the Dardanelles. Following check-in at our hotel, we visit the Helles Memorial to the Missing, where the vast majority of those who fell in 1915 are commemorated. B,D

Day 3 - British Landings Cape Helles - Krithia

We focus on the 25th April 1915. On the British sector we see where the River Clyde landed men of the 29th Division on V Beach and the nearby V Beach Cemetery. We then move on to Lancashire Landing, where the 1st Lancashire Fusiliers won six V.C.s before breakfast. (This visit requires some walking as the roads to the beach are not accessible by coach.) At X Beach we see where HMS Implacable landed 2nd Royal Fusiliers, and after lunch we look at the ground at Krithia. B,D

Day 4 - ANZAC Beach - Lone Pine

Continuing with our look at the 25th April landings we move north to ANZAC, where the Australians and New Zealanders landed. We visit ANZAC itself, spending the morning walking along the landing beach and seeing the battlefield and nearby military cemeteries. At Lone Pine we look at the Australian attack then see the Lone Pine Memorial and Cemetery. We see where Albert Jacka became the first Australian to win the V.C. in WW1, and go to the Nek, where the Australian Light Horse suffered heavily in the August offensives – as graphically illustrated in the film ‘Gallipoli’. The day ends on the New Zealand battlefield at Chunuk Bair. B,D

Day 5 - Sulva Bay - Shell Green

In the morning we go to Suvla Bay, seeing where we study the landings and also look at the history of the ‘Lost Battalion’, the 1/5th Norfolks: the men from the Sandringham Royal estate who disappeared during the fighting at Suvla. We also visit the Suvla Bay Museum. After lunch we return to ANZAC and see the peaceful Shrapnel Valley Cemetery and walk up to Shell Green where the Australians played a game of cricket in full view of the Turks. B,D

Day 6 - Channakale - Troy

We cross the Dardanelles to visit Channakale, seeing the military cemetery, with free time for some shopping and lunch. In the afternoon we travel to Troy, visiting the site of the famous siege and seeing the archaeological remains, before returning to Gallipoli.B,D
