So I have studied "Tourism Guiding" for four years in "Ege University" in İzmir.In 2010, I started to lead tours in Cappadocia. In 2012 moved back to Istanbul. In Cappadocia I focused on cultural and hiking tours while I was learning more about Early Christian History and Iconography.

My interest in tour guiding was sparked as young boy listening to the stories of visitors who kept coming every 25th of April, to my home town, Gallipoli to commemorate the fallen soldiers. Having completed a Tour Guiding degree in the university converted my passion to a career which made me one of the most well known outdoor and cultural tour guide after years of guiding at every single inches of Turkey. In 2008 I decided to became a full time battlefield tour guide for the Gallipoli and keep sharing my passion and knowledge with hundreds of military and research groups as well as individu Learn more
