Your tour takes you to Gallipoli and Troy, with a friendly guide, comfortable overnight accommodation, and convenient transport to complete the experience.

On the first day, you will make your way to Eceabat for a lunch stop before continuing to Gelibolu National Park that was reserved as a “ Special National Park area “ in 1973 by the Turkish Government in the memory of the soldiers who sadly lost their lives in the war of Gallipoli.

You will pay a visit to the Kabatepe War Museum that houses a collection of historical items relating to the Gallipoli Campaign of World War I. next is the Beach Cemetery, a curved plot around 80m in length just above the Hell spit facing the sea and was used throughout the occupation.

Finally go to ANZAC Cove, where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps first landed during World War I. Then spend the afternoon admiring a variety of memorials dedicated to ANZAC forces before settling into your hotel in Eceabat.

On your second day board a ferry boat that whisks you across the Dardanelles and take a short drive to the city of Troy, where the Trojan War between Greeks and Trojans took place in 1250 BC. Learn about this region, which is a significant settlement during the Bronze Age and see a life-size replicate of the famed Trojan Horse.

In the afternoon you will get some free time to explore Çanakkale, a beautiful city that sits peacefully by the Dardanelle Strait. Make sure to ask your guide any questions you may have about the rich history of this region before making the return trip to your hotel in Istanbul.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day trip to Troy and Gallipoli. From the beginning, it was very well organised. All the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Both guides in Troy and Gallipoli were passionate about the history and enthusiastically shared this with the group. Staying the night was a good option as we really got to appreciate the area and the long journey to and from Istanbul was not on one day. I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip.

In particular the Gallipoli part was well done with an excellent guide who catered to our needs, was very knowledgeable and was able to tell the story in a meaningful way. His English was very good. We highly recommend this portion of the tour. Troy was also performed to a good standard.
