Notes

Order of the visits may be changed for the convenience of the tour. Depending on the seasonal occupancies, Canakkale stay may be swapped to Guzelyali town. Istanbul - Canakkale track is a long drive (about 4-5 hours). During the summer season there are also domestic flights between Istanbul - Canakkale and this tour can be done with flights on private basis too. Please note that this tour is not applicable during the Anzac Day (April 25th) period due to extremely high request and crowd, therefore it's impossible to secure guides nor accommodations during that time of the year.
