It is possible to have fun and learn the history! Specially in Turkey with me :)
You will be surprised to find out so much of the Western Literature and Visual arts have roots in these grounds where Turkey is at the moment.
I acquired my National Professional Tour Guide License in 1998.
Later completed my BA in Comparative Literature.
I am still taking my self on private tours in this majestic city and can even surprise my self, this is an on going never ending study, as they say "Rome was not built in one day".
Whether you want the classical sites or off the beaten path is up to you!
This city and country has endless surprises for the travelers,
