Hello! I am Fırat I am 26 years old, born in Turkey and raised in several locations in Turkey. I have lived in Ankara for a long time and I have lots of contacts in the city for everything. From a place to stay (in case something happens with the current accommodation, so you can trust me on not to sleep on the sidewalk 😋) to numerous activities like a nice dinner or attending a concert. 🎸 --------------------------------------- Let me tell you about Ankara. Ankara is the Capital of Turkey. It has lots of landmarks like Anıtkabir or Ankara Castle 🏰. It has a great night-life as well as nature not that far away from the city. You can see the cultural places and experience the hearth of the country. You can see the history of Turkey Republic. It has a multicultural population from all across Turkey, so you can just change the ambience only by taking a bus. 🚍 One moment you can be in the middle of the action where there are a lot of people, another moment you can be in a peaceful neighbourhood sipping your tea.☕ ----------------------------------------- What you can expect from my trip? You can look at the stops down below for more detailed information. But shortly you will experience the full city life from the food and bars to parks and historical places. I am planning to have some fixed locations and activities to visit and see. But since I also want to know what you want to do, I am going to organise some free time, and you can ask me to do the activities or explore a specific place you might hear before. I will be guiding you all the time. We can discuss this before or during the trip.😎 ------------------------------------------ The price includes: - 6 nights of stay -Transport from the Airport in Ankara to accommodation and from accommodation to airport at the end of the trip. (So I will arrange to drop you where I took with tears because you are leaving.😓) -Public transport (since you need a specific card and a bank account for the transport, I don’t want to bother you for those, and to make things faster and not boring) - Car expenses -Ticket prices for museums and such. (again to make things faster) -My fee (for organising, local knowledge and guiding fees) ------------------------------------------ The price NOT includes: -Plane ticket. -Personal expenses like gift shopping or drinking/eating in a bar. -Travel Insurance. -Cooking ingredients. (Since it's a common expense we can use Splitwise for that.) ------------------------------------------ Notes: -For additional questions you can message me anytime, I will answer those as soon as possible. -Our potential accommodation (Airbnb) in the gallery needs a booking deposit and needs to be fully booked one week before the trip. I would like to see you on my trip and let's have this exciting experience together.😎
