I am a freelance professional tour guide and tourleader working all around Turkey and specialized not only in cultural and sightseeing tours but also in trekking, cycling, mountaineering, multi activity, cooking and culinary tours and whellchair accessible tours for 7 years. I am a well seasoned traveler as well and I could know how it feels to be abroad and what you wish to explore after telling your expectations and your wishlist. My mission is not only to introduce Turkey but also help my clients for all their needs with the best I can so that I make sure they have a perfect, problem free and memorable visit with responsiblities such as health and safety, confort, satisfaction, interest and needs of my guests.
I have been guiding for major international tour companies such as the leading British tour operators Explore and Exodus and Walk about Gourmet Adventures, a specious small group tour operator in Australia since 2009. I guide mostly for the commonwealth in my career, however, I also work with 11 different nations within 16 different tour operator from Europe visiting every corner of Turkey.
I believe every tour must be a memorable experience. I duly acknowledge that sightseeing is not the only expectation of a traveller. I sincerely try my best to share as many assets about Turkey as possible including but not limited to religion, art, history, architecture, geology, flora, fauna, cuisine, folklore, customs and local life.

A Recent Review of this guide
We had a superb tour of the Fethiye area hosted by Fatih, who was friendly, kind, considerate and very knowledgeable and professional. He even took us for a delicious lunch to his family home where his mother and grandmother were making gozlemi. The friendship we were shown made us feel especially welcome and we would be delighted to, and will hope to, meet Fatih again next time we are in Turkey. Absolutely grand and definitely 5/5. Many thanks Ali and Alan
