Day Tours – Gallipoli

Fully Escorted - Exclusive Accommodation


Our Gallipoli day tours have been specially designed for you to enjoy the beautiful rugged Peninsula while being very informative as you retrace the footsteps of Australian troops who fought so gallantly on Australia’s most famous battlefields.

Rest assured, you can visit Gallipoli stress free as we’ll take care of everything on our fully-escorted day tours, which are accompanied by a local battlefield expert with an excellent knowledge of all battles and sites on the Peninsula.

Your trip has been organised at a relaxed pace, where you can enjoy the scenery while understanding how the Anzac’s courage and resourcefulness became a source of national pride and of national character.

Our Gallipoli day tours depart from Istanbul, with overnight trips staying at the recently refurbished Grand Eceabat Hotel, which is located right on the waterfront with spectacular views across the Dardanelles to Canakkale.

We have also completed arrangements with our best located and recommended Gallipoli Hotels to represent them here in Australia and to offer you an exclusive hotel reservation and information service.

Customer Testimonials

“Our tour guide was outstanding in his role. We were searching for my great grand-father’s position at Lone Pine and his cousin’s grave at Shrapnel Valley. His presentation skills and general assistance were first class. He is clearly an asset to your team.”
G Wilcock, Victoria

“Hasan Gundogar is obviously passionate about the story of Gallipoli and is proud of working with the Boronia team. He is an excellent guide and we were impressed with his telling of the story and his knowledge. Both Steve and myself are long term RAAF members and during our time have studied the Gallipoli battle as well as seen and heard many stories so could tell if he was just presenting to a lot of dumb tourists. Happily he did not give that impression and treated all Aussie, NZ, Irish and English travellers with respect when telling us of the battles.”
Kathy Andrews

“Kenan was absolutely amazing. He is just such a treasure, so humble and so knowledgeable. It was honestly one of the best things we’ve ever done. It was great to watch all of the tour busses schlep the “sheep” on and off to all of the major attractions, while we had Kanan take us to all of the real sites and explain everything in detail. We came away with a great understanding of the conflict, especially from the Turkish point of view (and in political context) which is something that I don’t think we would have got on one of the group tours.”
Clarissa Wilson, Melbourne

“Just flew in from Turkey last night and I congratulate you on the organisation of our trip to Gallipoli back on the 12th September. David and I left the wives in Istanbul to go shopping, whilst we headed off at 6.30am. The team picked us up right on time and were very efficient and pleasant in taking us to Gallipoli and back with no fuss at all. Learnt a huge amount about the event from the tour guide who joined us. You can be well proud of the tour implementation.”
Greg Sidebottom, Shepparton

Testimonials

“From 6am the first day till midnight two days later it was all entertaining. Everything went to plan extremely smoothly on the two day tour of Gallipoli.”

“Hasan gives you a very open opinion of the conflicts and situations that happened around the peninsula in 1915. He is factual and honest of the events and battles. He broadens your either limited, or perceived views of the events and backs it up with factual documents and views of the areas of the battles. He is truly more than a Tour Guide. He is a historian.”
Fred Muller, Buderim

“I just wanted to tell you how fabulous Hasan, our guide was. He took such interest in my son’s stories about our relative at Gallipoli, took us for lunch on the way, and was a brilliant well informed guide. (He even insisted on giving me the CD we were listening to as I expressed interest in Turkish music!) I really appreciated his care of us, and wanted you to know how much we enjoyed his tours.”
Joanna Maxwell, Sydney

“I would just like to say a thank you for my Gallipoli & Troy tour on 4-5 April 2014. After visiting Troy on the first day of my tour and arriving at the Grand Hotel Eceabat, I was met in person by Gallipoli guide Hussain (who had only just finished guiding a one-day tour group) and Molly.  They had learnt that the “ANZAC section” of the peninsula would be closed off the following afternoon for a local cycling event and re-arranged my tour itinerary so that I would not miss out on visiting all the sites (I was the only person booked for the following day).  With my agreement, Hussain immediately took me through the southern (British) section sites for the next 2 hours that late afternoon.  He then picked me up before dawn the following morning and we enjoyed breakfast at dawn on the Anzac Cove memorial site – an experience I will long remember – before visiting the other ANZAC sites.  (As I write this, I am watching the Anzac Day dawn service from that very place and recalling my visit).  Molly then organised for me to take a local bus back to Istanbul, where I was met at the bus station and taken to my Istanbul hotel.  This meant I was back around 6pm.

I cannot thank Boronia Travel and the local team enough for their willingness to rearrange their own schedules and go out of their way to ensure that I was able to experience all the Gallipoli peninsula sites, and that I was not inconvenienced by circumstances beyond their control.  My experience truly reflects that you have a great local partner for your Gallipoli tours.
Andrew Stork

“Tour was great, really interesting seeing the terrain and learning a bit more of the history. Hasan was absolutely fantastic, really across all the history and versions of the history, I learned so much I’d not heard before just from the few hours under his guidance. I would recommend your tour simply based on his expertise/style of delivery.”
