All our guides are professionals licensed by the Turkish Ministry of Tourism. They are experienced and knowledgeable in their subjects. They know what to speak and talk about. Besides possessing official licenses, our team of professional tour guides has other facets; they are journalists, or theatre actors, authors, art historians, archaeologists, etc. Our guides are a bunch of good-humored Turks giving their hand with warm welcome and smile on their faces. You will always see them with smiling faces ready to share their knowledge, to host you, to spread a friendly atmosphere wherever you step-in. They have all kinds of very positive knock-on effects. Many of – the churches and mosques and other buildings are usually closed to the 'normal' visitor. It isn’t closed to the people who go on our tours because special connections 'open doors' literally as well as figuratively. For example, our guides will have the key to a beautiful mosque that is normally closed to the public.
