For travel in April 2015, we currently have places available on our Gallipoli 2015 – Anzac Day Centenary Tour, which includes premium accommodation in the very best hotels in Canakkale. The Four star Truva Hotel has undergone a multi-million Euro refurbishment, and the Four star Akol Hotel, are both in great waterfront locations, close to the ferry terminal with views across the Dardanelles to the Gallipoli Peninsula.

We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer these hotels over this period due to our special relationships and friendships with these hotel owners and their families, who can provide our tour members the very best accommodation which no other tour operator can match.

We Have Australia’s Best Battlefield Experts

As the ‘Official Travel Agent’ for the Australian War Memorial, our tours are designed by experts and lead by Australia’s most experienced and respected military historians who have travelled and written about these battlefields for over 20 years.

The Gallipoli campaign has left such a powerful legacy, which is why our Gallipoli 2015 tour will be more of a pilgrimage than a battlefield history tour. Our historians live and breathe Australian military history, and have personally created this special in depth tour that will bring to life the experiences of the (often anonymous) soldiers while gaining a different perspective about the Gallipoli campaign.

There are also many exclusive highlights which cannot be found in other battlefield tours, making this a once in a lifetime opportunity for those who are passionate about understanding the Gallipoli campaign…
