* Visited Sights: Gallipoli – Anzac Cove- War Cemeteries – Anzac Memorials – Troy – Trojan Horse – Çanakkale – Dardanelles
The shores of Gallipoli are intensely significant to Australians and New Zealanders (ANZACs), and in recent decades they’ve seen a real healing and reconciliation between Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. This now serene site, located at Turkey’s most westerly point, plays a crucial role in the travels of both young and old people, just like it did in 1915 for the allied forces. Our team of professional guides, drivers, tour leaders and office staff all hold a wealth of knowledge on the Gallipoli subject, ensuring you get the most out of your Gallipoli experience.
Pick up from your city center hotel. Be ready for Gallipoli Anzac Troy Tour from Istanbul .

There is a marble memorial above the beach where Ataturk wrote a tribute to the mothers of the fallen allied soldiers: “Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives. You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country; therefore, rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well.” Ferry across Dardanelles. We’ll see the maquette Trojan Horse used in the famous movie “Troy” before lunch at Çanakkale. Visit to the ancient city of Troy, famous with the legendary Trojan Horse from the times of Beautiful Helen, the Queen of Sparta and Paris, the Trojan Prince.
