Enjoyed my second trip to Gallipoli over October/November 2018. I spent about 16 days at TJs Hotel in Eçeabat, which was my second stay at the Hotel (my first being for about a week in 2016).
I have nothing but praise for TJ and his wonderful staff. They kept my room clean, my belly full and my days both busy and exciting. TJs depth of knowledge with regard to the Gallipoli campaign in 1915 is phenomenal. His tours of the battlefields are informative, interesting and very moving. He creates a very personal feel when presenting the history of the battle, and presents both sides of the story when speaking of the struggle between the Turks and the Allies.
I was also fortunate enough to be taken on tour by TJ to Troy, Assos, Pergamon, Ephesus and Kuşadası. TJ assembled a team of very knowledgeable guides who knew each site in intimate detail, and my mind was blown by the things I was able to see and feel. I walked away from those tours in awe of the history of this amazing country. Turkey is a patchwork of so many different cultures, so many influences over the millennia, and each civilisation has left their mark on the country. And TJ was able to show me all of it, and yet I am still determined to return to see more still.
Thank you TJ and team for a most memorable trip, and you’ll be sure to see me again soon!
