I felt that the trip provided a broad coverage of western Turkey - urban & rural, and a real sense of the history of the peoples living there over time - their influence & contribution to the culture & architecture still existing today.

Taking the G Adventures tour gave us a great experience of a beautiful and fascinating country. We could never have seen the breadth of sites that we did had we gone on our own. The homestay let us see a glimpse into Turkish life which would have been otherwise inaccessible. Sharing the trip with other travellers also let us see the country through their eyes (having an Aussie on the tour added another dimension to our trip to Gallipoli)

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Hotel (2 nts), sleeping bags for the ceremony.
Day 1 we will spend the night at a hotel in Çanakkale. Please note that no accommodation is provided in Gallipoli. We will spend the night along with all the other visitors at the Gallipoli site, where bandstands will be set-up from the day before, ready for the dawn service. The night can get very very cold so it is important that you do not forget to bring warm clothes and a suitable sleeping bag.

Important Notes

Anzac Memorial Day Ticket Registration As of 2017 passengers will be required to register for this event, and be able to show a printed ticket as proof of registration. Please see the Visa section of the tour details for more information. Arrival Istanbul on the morning of Day 1: Please note that this tour departs Istanbul at 8am sharp on the morning of Day 1. Please meet your fellow group members 15 minutes before this time at the Joining point hotel listed in this dossier, where your CEO will be waiting. Overnight at Gallipoli Site: Please note that no accommodation is provided. We will spend the night along with all the other visitors at the Gallipoli site, where bandstands will be set-up from the day before, ready for the dawn service. The night can get very very cold so it is important that you do not forget to bring warm clothes. We will supply sleeping bags for those who would prefer not to bring their own, but please bring a sleep sheet for hygiene reasons. Arrival time into Istanbul: We may not arrive back to Istanbul until as late as 8pm on the departure day of this tour. Please do not book any departing flights until after 11pm. Group size: Please note that as this is a special departure, the maximum group size for this tour is 15 but there may be multiple departures all following the same itinerary but each with their own CEO. RAMADAN According to the lunar cycle, Ramadan will fall between May 15th and June 14th, 2018. Please note that Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims throughout the world, during which time the followers of Islam should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. There may be some limitations to services and disruptions to schedules during Ramadan, but generally our tours still operate effectively during this period and food is available to non-Muslims throughout the day. It is very important to display increased cultural sensitivity during Ramadan. Please wear loose fitting clothes, that cover knees and shoulders, and try to avoid eating, drinking or smoking in public out of respect for those who can't at that time.

Meals

Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip. The above information applies to G Adventures group trips. For Independent trips please check the itinerary for details of meals included. For all trips please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.

Dossier Disclaimer

The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary. VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
