This 5 day tour, starts and ends in Istanbul, Turkey.
Welcome to Istanbul, where you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Tonight, meet your guide and the rest of your group.
After breakfast, you enjoy a fully guided tour of the only city to span two continents, visiting the Blue Mosque, St. Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, the Hippodrome and the Grand Bazaar. Tonight don't miss the optional Turkish Folklore evening.
Today we head to Eceabat, near the Gallipoli battlefields. The remainder of the evening is free until we head to the Dawn Service site as soon as it is opened to the public. Here we will spend the night in nervous anticipation of the Dawn Service at 5:30 a.m.
Awake before sun rise for the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. We become aware of the almost deafening silence as the moving service to commemorate our fallen forefathers on this special day begins. You will then have the chance to attend the Australian or New Zealand Memorial service before a late afternoon drive back to Istanbul.
Our tour concludes after breakfast and we bid farewell to our new friends.
