I'm booked for this tour next April and i'm starting to plan ahead. I arrive in Istanbul 7.25 am Sat so I will have almost 2 days before the group first meets. I was planning on getting my bearings and doing a ferry ride on the Bosphorus on Saturday. Not sure about sunday. I'm guessing that the group would visit the Blue Mosque,Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace on the Monday. Is my guess OK?
Friends have told me that Anzac Cove predawn can be cold. I will probably have thermals on if that is the case. The trip dossier advises bringing a sleeping bag for the overnight train trip. Would a sleeping sheet + thermals be sufficient?
