Hi! My name is Aykut Altınışık..I am a Turkish Archaeologist and certified guide in Turkey. I have studied ancient history and archaeology for 4 years, earned a degree in classical archaeology at the University of Ankara (1994). I have worked on archeological excavations all around Turkey during my archaeology studies. I started working as a tour leader and official tour guide in 1997 and I have been doing it with great enthusiasm since then. I specialize in small group and private tours, ancient and modern geographical history, Eastern Turkey, religious heritage tours, biblical tours and walking tours. I also act as driver guide. I am married and currently live in Antalya, Turkey.

Contact me for private Driver-Guide Tours and day excursions to the archaeological sites and in and around Antalya.

It's simple: you want the freedom and comfort of touring Antalya in a private car driven by a professional driver, guided by a professional tour guide.

I organize private day tours to the best preserved ancient cities and archaeological sites in Antalya area such as Perge, Aspendos, Side,Sagalassos, Phaselis, Olympos, Myra, Pamukkale.

Aykut was knowledgeable friendly and helpful. He picked me up and we visited Termessos and Karain cave. He explained the history of the area and of most of Turkey/Greece/Rome/Persia etc to put things into perspective. We went for lunch at a small family owned restaurant that he selected and he ordered a traditional local lunch - delicious. His English was excellent and i kept probing his mind for more information and he had most of the answers for me. I recommend him to any ancient history buff.

We have had a wonderful day. Aykut is so knowledgeable and so enthusiastic about the places we visited. We asked loads of questions and we learned so much from his excellent answers. His English is impeccable. The sites are fantastic. We would recommend Aykut to anyone with an interest in the region and we will definitely book him again if we return to Turkey. A perfect day with the perfect guide.
