As a well seasoned traveler, I can understand how it feels to be abroad. My mission is not only to give a good introduction of Turkey but also help my clients for all their needs with the best I can do. In this way, I make sure they have a perfect, problem free and memorable visit. With my 12 years of expertise the guiding services I provide and the relevant regions are as follows:
I can arrange and lead all kinds of historical, folkloric, culinary, archeological, art history and faith tours depending on your interests. I can legally and effectively guide you at all the sights, sanctuaries, national parks, cultural centers and museums in Turkey as well as the Gallipoli and Anatolian war memorials.
City Tours (on foot and/or transport based)
I do private guiding and detailed city tours in Istanbul, Ankara and any other Turkish cities of interest.
