Start your day with a hotel pickup or alternatively, board your air-conditioned coach near Topkapi Palace, and then travel south toward the peninsula of Gallipoli on Turkey’s European side. After a stop to stretch your legs and enjoy breakfast in the town of Tekirgad (own expense), arrive at Gallipoli and start your tour of World War I battlefields.

Under Allied command, Australian and New Zealand forces landed at Gallipoli in 1915 with the aim of invading and capturing Constantinople—the city that is now Istanbul. The troops were met with a fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turks and the battle dragged on for more than half a year and claimed thousands of lives. Today, the fields of Gallipoli serve as memorial sites for the countless Turks, Australians and New Zealanders who lost their lives in the battles.

Visit ANZAC Cove where some of the most significant battles of Gallipoli took place and hear about the day when the Australian and New Zealand troops first arrived at the cove. After walking along the headland, continue to Lone Pine to see the Australian’s main memorial site. Named after a solitary pine tree that grew there, the site bears the names of nearly 5,000 soldiers who have no known grave.

Wander through the old trenches of the Nek while hearing tales of troops charging from the surrounding woodland, and then visit Chunuk Bair, one of the few sites that the Allied troops managed to capture, albeit for a small period of time. The site now serves as one of the main memorials for New Zealand soldiers.

Stop for lunch in the early afternoon at a restaurant in town, and then continue exploring the now tranquil memorial sites around Gallipoli. Visit Ari Burnu Cemetery, where 252 servicemen lay buried, and take some time to walk around at leisure and pay your respects. Pass sites like Brighton Beach, the Beach Cemetery and the trenches at Johnson’s Jolly, and then return to your coach for the journey back to Istanbul.

Your day trip then finishes in the early evening at the start point in central Istanbul.

A long journey, 4.5 hours each way, but worth it to see the story of the WW1 attack on the Gallipoli peninsula. Firstly we visited ANZAC cove, then the "beach cemetery", then the ANZAC Cemetery and memorial, the Turkish 57th Army cemetery and the high Defence point taken by Ataturk, the Turkish general, with a NZ memorial nearby and some reconstructed trenches - from here you could see the whole lay of the land. Disappointed not to pop into the museum, although our guide was quite dismissive of it.
