Guide profile:

Hello everyone! I have been working as a licensed tour guide of Turkish Ministry of Culture since 2010. Before to start my profession as a guide I studied Journalism as bachelor degree and radio-televsion and cinema as master degree. Besides guiding I also continue to work as director for documentary movies. Both professions of mine supports me to improve myself and to share my experiences with other people from all over the world.

My birth city is Diyarbakır which is in the east part of Turkey, I spent my studentship period in İzmir and İstanbul which are in the west and north-west parts of my country so I had opportunity to be in different regions of Turkey not only as a guide but also as a resident. After completing my MA, I have started to live in İstanbul, and sometimes in Cappadocia.

While living in İstanbul, i also worked as a resarcher in some local magazines and research companies on travel and ethnicities of Turkey like "Yezidis, Tahtaci Alevis, Suryanis and Gypsies" and Immigrants of Turkey in Historical Peninsula. Also I had chance to work as lecturer at Okan University on art and movie history.

Now I am a freelance guide and documentarist. I have two documentaries which i directed. If you want to watch, you can ask me.

In order to get a guiding license i have studied History and religion,art history, Mythology. You can ask as much as you want to learn history, culture,current life, political and social structure in Turkey.

I look forward to meet with you.

Best wishes

Ebu Çetinkaya
