special Local Experience
Join me on a life-time experience in Kuşadası Turkey, a mix of history, nature, beatiful sea, long and sandy beaches and many hidden gems. I am Arif and I will be taking care of you along this adventure:) Group trip has always more to offer than alone one. It does not only offer discovering places but also offers to experience different cultures and perspectives. Therefore, as a local person I want to organise this trip to share this amazing experience with my future trip mates.

About me! So, who am I? I am 30 years old, I’m from Kocaeli(nearby İstanbul) however I spent most of my summers in Kuşadası and I have come with a conclusion that keeping this beautiful place from others kind of a sin:). I was a participant of ‘’ WORK AND TRAVEL PROGAMME’’ twice and I was Erasmus student once:) So as you can imagine I have travel experience. I believe I can say that I am fun to be around especially in holidays:) Besides I run my own business I have the flexibility for travelling.

Details about the accommodation: Throughout our journey, you’II be staying in comfortable shared double room in a hotel called Melodi Club.(in Kuşadası). So, the room will be shared with another person among the group. The hotel has two swimming pools, one of them with waterslide. The hotel has a big garden and peaceful atmosphere. Hence, you can count on a good rest at nights, after a full day of enjoyment. Transportation will be provided by the car that I will drive.
