2018 marks the 103rd year of the amphibious landing of British, Indian, Dominion and French troops on the Gallipoli Peninsula. The tragic campaign that followed lasted eight months and resulted in nearly half a million Allied and Turkish casualties. The story behind its eventual failure, of heart breaking missed opportunities and the remarkable heroism of the troops involved is the basis of the tours.

Following the 2015 centenary and yet another year of successful tours of Gallipoli, in conjunction with Battle Honours Ltd, we are pleased to be offering identical trips for members and friends to visit the Peninsula in the company of fellow enthusiasts and authorities.
2018 will see us running concurrent walking and coach tours, visiting all the most important spots of Gallipoli, with some new. This comprehensive battlefield tour will not only cover the main areas of the campaign, at a relaxed pace, but also some of the seldom visited spots not offered on other tour itineraries. We believe this tour is second to none, and with all the advantages of like-minded individuals, this intimate group will discover trench remains, old mule tracks, dried up gullies and the quiet beaches of this beautiful Peninsula.
Our tours are led by Gallipoli Association and Guild of Battlefield Guide members.
Gallipoli 6th - 11th May 2018
Cost: £1,400 (£1,200 non flight option)
This will be our first trip to the shores of the Gallipoli Peninsula in 2018 will take the form of an in depth study of the entire campaign from the initial landings, through the Suvla campaign and up to the final withdrawal of troops. Gallipoli as a battlefield is quite simply unique, a 'must see' for those with a passion in the subject and a favourite destination for most of our guiding team. May's 6 day, 5 night tour will be based in Cannakale and will highlight all the incredible history the peninsular has to offer.
