I am a graduate of an American school here in Istanbul and have spen Learn more

I have been working in various departments of Tourism since 1992 and am a professional licensed guide not only in Cappadocia but all over Turkey. Born in Germany, se

Soy guía turística oficial de hispanohablantes y además he estudiado Filología Hispánica en la Universidad de Estambul. Vivo y trabajo en Estambul aunque también he vivido en España (Madrid, Ubeda, Islas Barcelona). Creo que las relaciones existentes desde la antiguedad entre Estambul, España y América del Sur todavía no son lo suficientemente conocidas. Los últimos años viajan a nuestra país bastantes hispanohablantes pero en la mayoría de los casos viven una experiencia pre-seleccionada, si se me permite la expresión.
