1. Day : Istanbul to Gallipoli - Guided Tour of Gallipoli
At 6:30am we meet at the V-GO meeting point in Istanbul (near most Anzac hotels). We bus towards Gallipoli and stop under the way to pick up supplies for lunch and the overnight stay at Anzac Cove. On the way we will have the chance to watch the latest documentary on the Gallipoli Campaign.
In Gallipoli we will have a fully guided tour: the Kabatepe War Museum, Anzac Cove, Lone Pine, The Nek and the Chunuk Bair War memorial.
Exploring the peninsular is a real highlight of the tour, but please be aware that there will be many, many tourist buses and delays over the Anzac event are inevitable.
At the end of the evening we head to Anzac Cove to get a good spot for the Dawn Service which starts early the following morning.
2. Day : ANZAC (Gallipoli to Istanbul)
At first light the Dawn Service starts, a truly moving experience.
After the Dawn Service you have the option to walk up to the memorial sites.

10:30 Australian National service
11.45 Turkish National Service
13:00 New Zealand National service
After the NZ service you will be collected from either Lone Pine or Chunuk Bair and we depart to Eceabat (short break here). Those who wish to leave the tour here can do so and head by ferry to Canakkale on the main land to continue their travels around Turkey. The coach will then depart for Istanbul arriving in the evening and we drop you off at the V-GO Meeting Point.
We hope that your tour was a memorable one and we look forward to seeing you in the future on another V-GO Turkey Tour. Have a safe trip back home and thanks for choosing V-GO Travel Turkey!
