My Background

I fell in love with Turkey on my first visit 20 years ago. 10 of those years I was a corporate travel agent, working for the Chairman’s group at KPMG. In 2001, I started providing unforgettable trips to Turkey tailored around my clients’ every wish. Trips I plan offer luxury and comfort combined with a closer cultural, artistic and culinary experience than what was being offered in Turkey at the time. 

Over the years, I have been named top travel agent for Turkey by National Geographic Traveler and have been featured in articles by Luxury Travel Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Daily News and The Jewish Daily Forward. I am also an Epicurean Travel Consultant for Bon Appetit Magazine.

Proud to be named Condé Nast Traveler's Top Travel Specialist for Turkey every year since 2001. 

My heart beats for Turkey and I am the travel expert to ask if you want to fall in love with the country, its people, and astonishing sights.
