When Aykut says he can open your eyes to the ancient wonders of the Mediterranean, he definitely means it. Tour guides come in all shapes and sizes, and with all varied degrees of backgrounds – art history, linguistic studies, tourism – but Aykut is special. Aykut’s background is based in archaeology, and as a trained archaeologist, he takes the journey across some of the world’s most ancient sites to a new and real level.
Just imagine visiting such local Antalya jewels as Hadrian’s Gate and Old Town, and then on to surrounding ancient cities of Aspendos and Perge, with an experienced guide that has a passion and career in the archaeological world.
Some sample tours to explore with Aykut include Antalya walking tours, Antalya culture and gastronomy tours and private archaeological tours. For those looking to get out of Antalya, Aykut possesses a vast knowledge on nearby cities of Perge, Aspendos, Side, Phaselis and Termessos. One of these tours takes visitors around for 6 hours to explore the Karain Cave – the oldest cave settlement in Turkey – and on to Termessos, which is home to a national park that houses rare plants and animals.
Transportation in a private car or van (with air conditioning) can be arranged for Antalya sightseeing, while Aykut’s standard out of Antalya tours include transportation in the price. Aykut has you covered!
