Itinerary

Day 1 - Monday 23 April 2018
Check In and Welcome Meeting
Check into your city centre hotel and be greeted by your PP Rep through out the day. Free airport transfer to your accommodation. This evening at 6:30pm we will meet for a welcome briefing in the hotel where we will go over itineraries and the tour and meet our local Turkish guide and fellow travellers. After the briefing we then have the opportunity to experience the nightlife that Istanbul has to offer.

Day 2 - Tuesday 24 April 2018
Depart for Gallipoli and ANZAC Cove
We will depart either from the hotel or from outside the Blue Mosque at 6:30am, we then depart for Gallipoli, stopping along the way so you can have some breakfast before our arrival at the cove. On the tour to ANZAC Cove you learn of the fate of over 10,000 Australians and New Zealanders. We visit the memorial sites at ANZAC Cove, Quinn's Post, the Nek, Walkers Ridge, Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair as well as other cemeteries as time and conditions permit.

Our tour aims to show the entire Gallipoli Peninsula, including the British landings at Cape Helles, helping you obtain a thorough knowledge of this ill-fated campaign. You then have the opportunity to secure your spot for the dawn service as we drop you at Anzac Cove before sunset giving you plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and witness first hand the Anzac spirit and camaraderie as you meet thousands of other Aussies and Kiwi's who are also here on the same pilgrimage. You will want to bring sleeping bag and warm clothes as it gets very cold in the early hours.Note: Our tour of Gallipoli is subject to road closures by the Turkish authorities.

Day 3 - Wednesday 25 April 2018
Memorial services Anzac Cove
This special day starts very early for the dawn service. It is a good idea to bring sleeping bag and warm clothes, as it can get very cold in the early hours. After the Dawn Service you are free to attend the Australian Memorial Service at Lone Pine and the New Zealand Memorial Service at Chunuk Bair. We leave the Anzac area after these services are completed - probably late afternoon - and drive back to Istanbul arriving late evening.

Day 4 - Thursday 26 April 2018
Check Out
After breakfast we take you on a guided tour of Istanbul to introduce you to some of the many special sights the city has to offer. Included in the tour are the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque and underground Cistern.
The afternoon will be free time so why not try a Turkish Bath. If you are staying on we can also arrange for you to go on the Bosporus cruise - not an overpriced "optional" offered by many others - those who want to join in will be escorted by the PP crew to the very economical but excellent public cruise.

Flights to Istanbul
The best site we believe to book your own flights is Opodo. It was created by the major European airlines and offers the cheapest options with them all.
