ANZAC Day at Gallipoli
As international travel becomes possible again we have slightly modified of some tour departures to include ANZAC Day at Gallipoli.
At this stage it is not clear if formal ceremonies will be resumed. They haven't taken place for the last few years due to covid restrictions.
However at the very least we will ensure these tours will be at ANZAC Cove at dawn. Our guide will hold a brief informal service, including the 2 minutes silence. Guests will be welcome to make a speech, lay wreaths etc.

ANZAC Day snapshot, what's it like at Gallipoli on ANZAC Day?
As soon as we are able to, you are taken to the site of the dawn service to get a good spot. There are food stalls selling a variety of Turkish Kebabs, pancakes and fast hot foods close-by so you won't go hungry.
Within a few hours, the site will appear like a sea of colour with Aussies and Kiwis sprawling out on the grass, warmly wrapped up in sleeping bags, National flags flying high and rugby tops on their backs. Get a few hours of rest/sleep on the grass because soon the MC will be asking you to squash forward to try and make space for the thousands more people still to come.
The buzzing atmosphere will permeate the whole night. Well before the grey light of dawn signals the start of the dawn service, speakers and entertainers begin their addresses, folk songs and stories.
