Embark on a moving day trip to explore the WWI battlefields, trenches and memorials of the Gallipoli Peninsula on this full-day tour from Istanbul, including lunch. Hear about the bloody battles of the Gallipoli Campaign as Turkish and ANZAC troops fought over control of the Dardanelles strait and visit the many war cemeteries, including the Beach Cemetery where the grave of Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick lies.
We were picked up at our hotel and joined a van load of other tourists.
We enjoyed the regular stops on the way as it was quite a long way to go.
The meals were fine and the stops were great.
We got back in good time at around 10pm and although a long day it was a really great experience.
