Dania Demirci

Dania is an American who first traveled to Turkey over 15 years ago expecting to see deserts and camels with barely a clue of exactly where Turkey was on the map. An opportunity arose for her to come to Turkey to help start a tourism business gaining expertise in Turkey travel, exploring the country and gaining insights on the best places to stay, where to eat, best guides and the lesser known areas of the country. She met and married Enes and they begin the journey of adventuring together in Turkey.

She believes exploring and designing a life to live on purpose creates personal growth and transformation. She enjoys all things travel, adventure, entrepreneurship & self-discovery. Dania loves maps, photography, nature, and empowering kids to get outside.

Favorite Type of Turkey Travel: Slow, Independent, Adventure, Outdoors, Road Trips

Enes is a Turkish native and proud of his culture and heritage. He was a chef in Turkey for 10 years before joining Dania working in the tourism industry. Having spent several years in the U.S. learning English and culture, Enes understands what travelers are looking for when they visit Turkey and can easily bridge the gap in communication and meeting expectations. Enes has a knack for finding the off the beaten path areas of Turkey and building relationships with the locals. Enes is passionate about Turkish food, culture, and adventure travel in Turkey.
