Commemorate Anzac centenary with Topdeck

Those with a ticket to Anzac Day centenary services in Gallipoli can join youth operator Topdeck on an 8-day trip which combines the formal ceremonies with a tour of Turkey’s highlights.

Departing 19 April from Istanbul, the Anzac Sortie features a tour of the capital including the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and a Bosphorus cruise, a visit to Bursa - the former capital of the Ottoman Empire, the beachside resort of Kusadasi and the ancient cities of Ephesus, Pergamon and Troy.

The trip continues to Gallipoli where you’ll camp under the stars in preparation for the moving Dawn Service watching films on a big screen about the remarkable bravery and courage shown by the Anzacs.

After the Dawn Service, participate in the Australian Memorial service and the New Zealand service at Chunuk Bair before returning to Istanbul.

From NZ$1260* per person, the trip includes six nights’ hotel accommodation on a twin or triple share basis, six breakfasts, two dinners, services of a licensed Turkish Guide and a Topdeck trip leader, and a commemorative hoodie.

Other Anzac Day Topdeck trips are available ranging from four to 14 days.

For more information contact Topdeck on 0800 525 366, visit www.topdeck.travel or your local travel agent.

*Terms & conditions apply. Passengers must have Gallipoli 2015 ballot tickets.
