Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Istanbul. Welcome to Turkey! Arrive Istanbul Atatürk International Airport and transfer to hotel in Sultanahmet. Consider arriving a day or two earlier or perhaps stay a day or two longer to take maximum advantage of a stay in Istanbul! Rest of day free. Overnight: Istanbul.

Day 2: Istanbul – Gallipoli. This morning, we drive to the Gallipoli Peninsular. On 25 April 1915, Allied soldiers including Australian and New Zealand troops (who famously became known as the Anzacs - an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landed at what has since become known as Anzac Cove to commence the Allied offensive against the Turks with the intention of capturing the Ottoman capital and the road to Eastern Europe during WW1. Some half a million lost their lives in ferocious combat. A lasting legacy of this fateful campaign are the many poignant war memorials including the national memorials of Australia and New Zealand - Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair, along with numerous carefully tended cemeteries, the remains of crudely dug trenches and of course Anzac Cove. Overnight: Gallipoli region.

Day 3: Gallipoli – Istanbul. Today, we continue to Troy. If you have seen the movie ‘Troy’ based on poet Homer’s ‘The Iliad’ you’ll be familiar with Paris, his prized Helen and Hector on the Trojan side and Agamemnon and Achilles on the Archaean (Greek) side. The legend of the lost city of Troy and Homer’s poetry was brought alive by it’s rediscovery in 1863. Subsequent excavations revealed 9 ancient cities, one on top of the other, dating back to 3000 BC! We enjoy a tour of the ruins and bear witness to a replica of the Trojan wooden horse that helped sack Troy. We later return to Istanbul. Overnight: Istanbul.

Day 4: Istanbul. After breakfast tour ends.
