Antalya Tour Guide

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello, my name is HUSEYIN SONMEZAY and I am a Tour Guide in Antalya, Turkey. 

I speak English, Russian and Bulgarian fluently and also some German, French, Polish and Arabic.

I live with my wife, Gulseren and our two children, Sevel and Mustafa and our budgie Chucky. 

Certificates and diplomas I hold include: 
Official tour Guide of Turkish Republic
• Notary Translator of English, German, Russian, Bulgarian and Polish Languages
• Bus & Truck Driver Licence
• Assistant to Traffic Police

I have been a Tourist Guide since 1995 and really enjoy my work. 

I believe that the guide through tourism introduces his culture to the people of other countries. Such a cultural exchange makes the tourist guide a cultural ambassador.

A tour guide is like a stage actor and his expression, clarity, communicability and intimacy put life into the rivers, hills, and remains.

What is required is an interesting presentation of cultural, historical and political significance. This is an art which has to be learned. Tourists should leave the country they visit with a wealth of knowledge and understanding and with a yearning to go back for more.

I will help you to discover the most beautiful sites of Antalya and its region. Show you some of Antalya’s best kept secrets and see sights that most tourists never see.

You will visit the ancient sites of Aspendos, Yanartaş (Chimaera), Phaselis and Perge and visit modern places with wonderful beaches like Kemer and Olympus. You will see wonderful natural beauty in Düden Waterfalls and Düzler Pine Forest and visit some amazing places in Kaleici (Antalya Old Town). I can also introduce you to Turkish culture, customs and nightlife. Recommend the best restaurants, bars and clubs and also find you bargains in leather, jewellery and artefacts.

I have been an Antalya tour guide for over 20 years. A long-time Antalya resident, I know all of the celebrated and secret places firsthand. I will share stories of my experiences with you and bring the sights of Antalya to life.

I will tailor your tour to your needs, and can give tours focusing on architecture, culture including bars & clubs, religion, history and much much more. 

I specialise in tours for groups and individuals in my three fluent languages: English, Russian and Bulgarian and I also speak some German, French and Polish.

As I am a certified Tourist Guide of Turkey, I can take you to visit some places that other guides cannot. 

I plan & conduct a wide variety of tours - to suit your interests, budget & time. I can provide you with a 3-hour family friendly walking tour to a 4-day extravaganza for business groups - and everything in-between. Every tour is different but they all have one thing in common: top quality guiding.
