The Blue Mosque

The journey begins where east meets west in Istanbul - a city enriched by two thousand years of history and adorned with spectacular mosques, minarets and bustling markets. You’ll explore the old city and take a guided boat tour along the Bosphorus.

The tour travels to the Gallipoli Peninsula and the famous straits of the Dardanelles. Here, in this spectacularly rugged landscape, a sense of tragedy surrounds the thousands of graves of Australian soldiers who lie alongside their comrades from many nations and those of their former Turkish enemies. At Gallipoli the Australian War Memorial tour group stays in a comfortable hotel on the Peninsula just south of ANZAC Cove - the only group to have hotel accommodation on the battlefield.
