On The Go Tours is proud to be associated with Legacy - an organisation dedicated to caring for the families of deceased Australian servicemen and women. Today Legacy’s caring and compassionate service assists over 100,000 widows and 1900 children and dependants with a disability. Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life. Their support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today’s Australian Defence Force who lose their lives as a result of their military service.
Legacy also have an office in London that provide care for Australian War Widows in 37 countries. Many of these deserving families are unaware of our presence in Europe. If you are aware of any such families, please contact London Legacy. We are able to support Legacy throughout the year with donations and prize draws. If you too are to help please contact us or Legacy direct at www.legacy.com.au

This moderately paced group tour spends time in Ottoman Istanbul before sightseeing and exploring ANZAC Cove and the many battlefields and memorials that dot the region. The tour is escorted by and English-speaking Turkish tour guide with specialist knowledge of the region and offers 4 star hotel accommodation, guided sightseeing, all transfers and transportation, many meals and a few unique experiences along the way.
It is also possible to book this tour in combination with return flights from Sydney, Australia with an overnight stay in London. We have a group fare arranged with British Airways for those who wish to do so. You may also wish to extend your holiday after Turkey with a stay in London, spending a few days exploring the famed landmarks of the nation’s capital! Legacy London also hosts its largest and most popular events at this time of year including the Gallipoli Legacy Ball in April 2014 and special ANZAC Day commemorations incorporating the Dawn Service at the Cenotaph and memorial service at Westminster Abbey.
