Itinerary

Day 1

Istanbul

Welcome to Turkey! Arrive at Istanbul 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

Gallipoli Battlefields

Istanbul – Gallipoli/Canakkale. 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 (most often the only form of protection for troops on both sides) and of course ANZAC Cove. Our brave men are remembered annually at the commemorative Dawn Service.

However, Gallipoli is a region that can be visited year-round, affording you the chance to pay your respects, perhaps place a flower on the grave of one of our brave troops and learn about the history of the men who came to be known as the ANZACs on our guided tour of the area.
Overnight: Canakkale  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3

Legendary Troy

Gallipoli –Troy - Istanbul. Early this morning we continue to Troy. If you’ve 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 Aechaean (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 3000BC! We enjoy a tour of the ruins and see a replica of the Trojan wooden horse that helped sack Troy. The tour of Troy finishes mid morning and the remainder of the day is offered at leisure in Cannakale until 6pm when you are transferred back to Istanbul with a late evening arrival.

Hi Sarah,

Just a short note to say thank you very much for organising my trip to Istanbul, Gallipoli and Troy. I've returned to today, having had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The hotels, the trips, the transfers etc. were all immaculately organised, the quality of accommodation was excellent and the guides first class. Please pass on my compliments to all the staff in Turkey. I'd have no problem in recommending 'On The Go Tours' to anyone, and using you again myself.

Tour and hotels were great and transfers ect worked well. It was just a little confusing because there were so many different people taking care of us and everyone on the tour has booked through a different company and had a different itinerary,we didn´t have an actual on the go tour guide like on previous on tours I have taken, for example we had nobody who collected the usual tip kitty and only tipped the last bus driver. The guide was great and knew much about the history of Gallipoli but it wasn´t clear if we see him again before leaving Canakkale.....we didn´t as he actually had started a new tour already.

We found the free time in Canakkale too long, would have preferred to be taken back to Istanbul earlier, straight after Troy to spend the evening there instead on the bus. We would have also been interested in taking a different route back (Asian side) maybe with a different stop instead of going back by ferry again.

We, a party of four composed of Edna Rivas, Celsie Marquez, Arnold Marquez and I, had the pleasure of taking a weekend tour with On the Go Tour from Istanbul to the Galipoli (Anzac Cove), with Ceyda Ozturk, our Tour Guide and Genghis, our Driver.

This tour was a wholesome and pleasurable experience for all of us because of the reason that we were extremely fortunate to have a charming and accommodating Tour Guide and excellent driver.

It is the intention of this group to present this Commendation Report to the Management of On the Go Tour based in Istanbul on Ceyda Ozturk. We found Ceyda Ozturk an excellent Ambassador of Istanbul in carrying out her job as a Tour Guide. She is very welcoming and accommodating. Her charming personality together with her friendly approach makes us feel welcome to your country and also make us feel comfortable and safe throughout this tour.

Her commentaries of the many things to see along the way to and from Cenakkale are highly informative and easily understood. She has a very good command of the English language, a necessary tool of communication for this job. She expresses herself well in conveying information across to her listeners. Her style of presentation enables her group to interact well with her. The interaction between the tour guide and the tourists makes the conversation lively.

We surely would recommend the On the Go Istanbul-based Tour to our friends and to our Travel Agent in Australia and request Ceyda Ozturk, as the Tour Guide.

We hope to go back to Istanbul one day and explore other beautiful places aside from Istanbul. This experience gives us so much pleasure visiting and admiring the beauty spots of Istanbul. Now that we are back to our hometown in Australia, the many happy memories of Istanbul will remain treasured in our hearts and mind. We will never forget Ceyda Ozturk for such wonderful service, as a Tour Guide. One day, if Ceyda Ozturk wishes to come to visit us, we would gladly accommodate her in our homes as our house guest.
