A local's guide to Turkey: an interview with Turan Kirac

TURKEY | Friday, 24 June 2011 | Views [3100]

What better way to get an inside view on Turkey, than to ask someone who makes a living guiding people through the country? Meet our BikeHike tour guide, Turan, a professional tour guide born and bred in the Aladaglar range of the Taurus Mountains. With years of experience guiding a vast range of tours (from multi-sport and trekking to historical heritage and tailor-made tours), Turan has a wealth of expertise in Turkey’s culture and history, fluency in English and a special interest in native birds and flora. If you’re heading to Turkey and need a guide, be sure to get in touch – [email protected]  - or else check out Turan’s video interview for some advice on getting off the beaten track in Turkey, what foods to try and some facts you didn’t know!
