Over the years we have built a genuine & loyal relationship not only with our clients but also with our service suppliers, specially hoteliers, local guides, transporters & others who have given us their best possible rates & utmost attention to the needs of our guests…

www.anzacgallipolitours.com is a full-fledged travel agent & tour operator run by Turkish / Australian couple (TJ & Bernina) who are experienced destination planners. Both management & guides have a long running reputation for being the Gallipoli tour specialists, having run daily Gallipoli tours to the ANZAC site for over 25 years.

TJ ­ (Ilhami Gezici) was born to guide the battlefields & Turkey. His name says it all. The direct translation would be: Ilhami = inspirational / Gezici = wanderer or traveller. TJ is the Inspirational Traveller. A local boy who studied high school in Eceabat, Ilhamis’ love of the battlefields grew from the enthusiasm of his history teacher who would take his students around the Gallipoli Peninsula & tell stories handed down from the local elders. Ilhami started out as an all ’round Turkey guide on long multi – city itineraries mostly for Americans who gave him the nickname TJ. As the travel agents & hoteliers got to know him by this nickname, it stuck & he has used it ever since. *’Marrying historical knowledge & general enthusiasm’ TJ decided to settle in Eceabat to start TJ’s Travel Agency running the most comprehensive day tours in the region.
*Verity Campbell (Lonely Planet author)

Bernina – “As a couple, I think we bring great harmony to our business. TJ is an excellent guide & has such a strong commitment to the Gallipoli peninsula that it shines through in his tours. As a trained Catholic school teacher, my organisational & interactive skills have helped me make an easy transition from teacher to tour operator & the religious training I have made it easier to melt our two worlds into one as both of us have kept our faith & merged our beliefs together to form a strong bond of what we believe makes for a more harmonious world. I was granted Turkish citizenship in 2005 & TJ was given his Australian citizenship in 2006, so together we have embraced both cultures & traditions, which I think makes for a great team in the tourism sector.”

While staying true to our origins, in 2011 we have launched our new website with a wide range of new travel services for like-minded independent travellers. We wholeheartedly believe our best assets are enthusiastic, well-educated guides, drivers & office personnel who have first hand knowledge acquired through living – guiding tours in Turkey & they are eager to share our country’s treasures as you are to experience them.
