Private tour guide Baris

Baris Y.

Çanakkale, canakkale, Turkey

Dear Guests, A warm Hello to you! I am a professional tour guide, studied Tourism and Guiding in University, and finished my Master Degree in 2010.

I am now doing a Phd on Gallipoli Campaign, making me the ideal guide for your in-depth exploration of this historic region.

I have a son who is 2 years old and my wife is a pre-school teacher. I take care to design my tours to ensure you have a great time here with your whole family. It is a privilege to be with you here in Gallipoli and I look forward to sharing with you both my knowledge and deep personal connection to our local history. I am a great-grandson of a Gallipoli Martyr, giving me unique insight into the events that took place here.

Please ask me anything you want to know about touring in this fantastic area of Turkey. If you would like your tour to be customized, I will be happy to take you to any specific place that you want to go in Gallipoli.

Thank you so much and see you soon!

A Recent Review of this guide

What an amazing tour. The best we have ever been on. Baris was informative, knowledgeable & patient with our numerous questions. So glad we chose to go private with a local tour. Loved his passion on the topic. We learnt so much. He went beyond what was required and allowed us to take our time at each memorial. This was very much appreciated. We went to a local restaurant for lunch which was delicious. I highly recommend this tour with Baris. You won't regret it.
