ILHAN VARLIK Private tour guide in Canakkale - Turkey

ILHAN VARLIK

Guide profile:

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 individuals from different part of the world.

I provide bespoke tours in Gallipoli and Troy as well as taking coach group on a formal tour.

I am the member of Chamber of Canakkale Tour Guides and have the privilege of being the board member of it since 2012.

People describe me as genteel, detail-oriented, easy-going and knowledgeable. I look forward to making your Battlefield visit an informative, respectful, and above all memorable experience.

My Gallipoli tour guide ILHAN VARLIK was really spectacular. He is so knowledgable about everything related to Gallipoli Campaign, and his passion for it all really shows. He also has a terrific personality, so if you get him as your tour guide, you're in for a real treat!

I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone interested in Gallipoli campaign. It was a very touching and moving experience. One that I know I will never forget. Thanks again Ilhan.

We had a wonderful tour and could not have asked for a better guide. He was so friendly and full of knowledge. He made our trip to Gallipoli well worth while and is embedded as a memorable time in Turkey. I can highly recommend Ilhan Varlik, Gallipoli tour guide.

Ilhan was incredible! We all loved his knowledge, enthusiasm, sense of humour and great ability to keep us all engaged and enjoying ourselves so much. The tour of Australian WWI sights was so special. I can honestly only RAVE about how good he is - definitely book him as he is really wonderful and be sure to ask him to take you the local restaurant to taste the Turkish "gozleme"; it was just superb.

We hired him for a daily tour to Troy and Anzac battlefields and he gave us much more than we expected. Very friendly personality meets with strong knowladge of all aspects of life and rafined tastes of food. A definate must have tour guide. We were sorry to have only one day with him but for sure we will come again.

Thanks Ilhan for being our guide.
