Gallipoli Full-Day Tour from Istanbul

1. Gallipoli Full-Day Tour from Istanbul

Take a trip into the past on a full-day tour of Gallipoli from Istanbul, traveling by air-conditioned minibus to the battlefields and war memorials of the ANZAC campaign of the Battle of Gallipoli during World War I. Depart Istanbul early in the morning, stopping en route for refreshments. Upon arrival on the Gallipoli Peninsula, your tour will focus on the ANZAC sector of the infamous battlefields. Stop at 11 different points of interest to learn more about the fateful events of the Australian and New Zealand troops, including ANZAC Cove where the troops first landed and set up base. Go to Beach Cemetery, where many of the soldiers who died during the Battle of Gallipoli were buried. Pause to reflect at the Lone Pine Memorial, one of 5 memorials on the peninsula that commemorate servicemen of the former British Empire killed in the campaign but who have no known grave. Visit the battlefields of The Nek and Chunuk Bair, where experienced guides will paint a picture that brings the war to life. Then, return to Istanbul by comfortable 25-seat minibus for a hotel drop off and the end of the tour services.

Though this is a long day, it was well worth it. If you’re into military history, you’ll enjoy this. Even if you aren’t into military history, you’ll probably enjoy the scenery and views in the area anyway. Everything was excellent from our hotel pickup, the drive there (about 5 hours with a couple breaks), the lunch, the tour, and the way back. Our tour guide at Gallipoli was great and extremely knowledgeable. Be prepared for a long day - you might want to stay overnight and do another tour the next day (like to Troy) but it’s still doable in one day. Would highly recommend!

Had an incredible time with Burak (hope i spelled his name correctly!) on our tour of Gallipoli. We were provided in depth history into what happened at key locations. He was incredibly fun and helped answer any questions we had. Just a note though that it is a very long drive to and from Gallipoli, so would recommend if you have more than a few days in Istanbul.

Incredible day - Bulant our guide was amazing and provided the perfect overview of the Gallipoli campaign. A long day which didn’t feel long due to the excellent care and support all along the way by Crowded House Tours crew.

Absolutely fantastic! From the transportation from Istanbul to our guide! I am not really into war but our guide made it so interesting that I would go back in a heartbeat. Can’t recommend it enough!

Pickup service, driver and on site guide are all excellent
