Hi! I’m Omer, and I’m a guide based in Sanliurfa in Southeast Turkey. I was born and grew up in a village on the Abraham Path in Turkey, and I know the area and the people very well. I have also lived in Istanbul, the UK, and the Republic of Ireland.

I have been involved in the Path in Turkey for 8 years, and I have walked with people from all over the world, sharing with them my knowledge of the area and the local Kurdish and Arabic cultures.

As well as being a walking guide, I also own a smallholding in the village where I was born and run a travel agency which focuses on responsible tourism. I am a trained chef and have worked in restaurants in Istanbul and England – I’m very interested in food, and make sure that guests walking the Path experience the best of local cuisine.

I have seen the immense benefits of the Path and sustainable tourism in the area. Not only have I been able to introduce visitors to the amazing hospitality for which the Sanliurfa region is renowned, I have also seen these visits enrich the lives of villagers along the Path.
