michaeldr Posted 20 January , 2020 Share Posted 20 January , 2020 (edited) Hereabouts it's cold and very wet today, and at such times one's thoughts stray to happier climes. Mine are looking forward to another tour of the Gallipoli battlefield in May this year The Gallipoli Association, are offering not only their popular ‘Walking Gallipoli’ Tour in the company of fellow enthusiasts and authorities, but also their new ‘Hidden Gallipoli’ Tour. One week, or two weeks, the choice is yours. These tours are open to GA members and non-members alike, however members will receive a £50.00 discount on the price. Walking Gallipoli (3rd -8th May 2020) which is led by the Association's historian and author, Stephen Chambers alongside guide, author and fellow GA member Clive Harris, will offer a series of walks covering the highlights of the campaign. Hidden Gallipoli (8th-13th May 2020) led by the same expert team, will offer a series of walks covering important sites that are rarely visited by groups. If you have been on one of the GA's walking tours and would like to return to do something different, this is the tour for you. Both tours are conducted at a relaxed pace and the distances are not excessive. Our average day involves around 6 miles over undulating ground, but at a pace to suit the needs of the group. Personally, this will be about my fifth time on the peninsula with the Gallipoli Association and I am looking forward to the Hidden Gallipoli Tour which intends to cover areas that I am not familiar with. These will include Kum Kale and the Orkanieh Battery (the French Landing and the VC action of Lt-Cmdr Robinson) as well as the Gallipoli Site Directorate's newly opened walk at Anzac from the rear areas up to the firing line. The last day is again one of my favourites; a walk along Kiretch Tepe Ridge, visiting Karakol Dagh, Jephson’s Post, The Pimple, Kidney Hill and the Gendarme Memorial. NB: The Gallipoli Association organises these flight-inclusive holidays through a recognised tour operator who is financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. This tour operator is the proud holder of the coveted 2013 Nathaniel Wade award from the Guild of Battlefield Guides for their services to guiding Check out the Gallipoli Association's website for full details or address your enquiries directly to the Gallipoli Association by email: firstname.lastname@example.org See you on the peninsula in May Michael Edited 20 January , 2020 by michaeldr Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
