Pure Anzac - 4 days


ANZAC Day Tours, Gallipoli 2016. Starts: 23rd April. Straight to the point our 4 day tour offers 4 star accommodation and is ideal for those who are short on time and just want to get down to ANZAC Cove for a slice of the action.

Day 1: 23 April - Istanbul
23 April 2016. Welcome to Turkey and your ANZAC experience! Airport to hotel arrival transfer. The remainder of the day offers free time in Istanbul – a city where the east meets west. This evening after our welcome meeting opt for a drink in the bar, a great way to break the ice and meet fellow travellers. Overnight - Istanbul

Day 2: ANZAC Eve - Gallipoli
Istanbul - Gallipoli. This morning we drive to Gallipoli. En route to the Peninsular we'll stop for a bite to eat, stretch our legs and stock up on supplies for the evening ahead. Upon arrival (exact time subject to Dawn Service Site opening hours) you will be given instructions about where to meet with your coach on 25 April, after the national services have concluded. Now it's time to sort a vantage spot on the grass or tiered seating, then take in the loaded atmosphere as the legendary wait for first light commences. Overnight - Dawn Service site (ANZAC Cove) (B)

Day 3: ANZAC Day - Gallipoli 2014
First light heralds the Dawn Service, then you’ll have plenty of time to independently explore the many trenches and memorial sites as you make your way up to Lone Pine or Chunuk Bair for the Australian or New Zealand National services. The service at Chunuk Bair usually starts about an hour after the Australian service at Lone Pine. If you’re a Kiwi, head straight to Chunuk Bair. It’s a good walk uphill and you’ll be struggling to view both services. Later this afternoon, we’ll journey back to Istanbul by coach, arriving late in the evening. (Timing on 25 April subject to coach traffic) Overnight - Istanbul
Day 4: 26 April - Istanbul
26th April 2016. After breakfast (9:00am), you're welcome to join us on a 2 hour cruise along the Bosphorus, the strait that divides European from Asian Istanbul. Returning to the hotel before 12noon, hotel check-out. This marks the end of a memorable 4 day ANZAC experience. Istanbul (B)
