2. Age : Minimum Age of 8. Whilst there is no Maximum Age set it is assumed the customer is fit enough to take part in the activity or tour. Health documents may be requested.

4. As international travel becomes possible again we are preparing 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.

Accommodation

This is intended to give an idea of the type of accommodation that may be expected. The actual hotels used for any given tour may change due to many reasons such as group size, availability, time of year, hotel standard has dropped or simply we found a better hotel. We update the website immediately if and when any changes take place. If and when we do change hotels it will be to a hotel of equal or higher standard and will be at no extra cost.

Where more than one hotel is shown for a given an overnight stop this means that one of those hotels will be used.
