Çanakkale, ÇANAKKALE, Turkey

I've been working officially as a Tour guide for 14 years.

In order to be tour guide in Turkey, you should work really hard, study at the university and you should be succesfull in several exams. When I got my licence, my dream came true. Because I decided to be a tour guide when I was 11 years old. In 14 years, after I started to be quiet experienced tour guide because of my passion. I used to work all around my country but I decided to be a specialist of a certain region and I chose North Aegean part . You can find whatever you look for on the Northwestern part of Turkey.
The highlights of the region are Gallipoli battlefields, Troy, Assos and Pergamon. They are all full of with the history, mythology and natural beauty. Because of the strategic importance of the region, there were two important wars between the west and the east, One was 104 years ago, the Gallipoli Campaign and the other one was the Trojan War nearly 3200 years ago, People always interest in both wars as they were mentioned in the history all the time, When you come to visit all these sites, you are going to see that the things that you had already known are missing. If you want to discover and learn more than the written history, you should come soon and follow me.

A Recent Review of this guide

Ercan was great! Very knowledgeable about the Gallipoli sites and Turkish history, engaging, friendly, was able to strike a balance on how much information to share. The driver was also great navigating through Istanbul traffic. Overall a great tour, highly recommended.
