Chapter Seven

The Field

Our superheroes are not Batman, Iron Man or Hercules. Our superheroes are our members in ‘the field’.

This is on Dolunay’s dedicated, highly skilled men and women who go many an extra mile.

Giving depth, perspective and continuity to such a rich and complex cultural material and streamlining guests’ preferences is not an easy task.

Purity in Elevation: Mount Erciyes, Cappadocia

Such a challenging task must be met with due ability.

That is why Dolunay prefers that a dedicated ‘National-Badged Guide’, rather than a string of local guides at each place or destination, lead our tours and accompany our guests throughout the entire program.

Purely Delightful: the Turquoise Coast

National tour guides in Turkey are among the very best in the world.

Many have degrees in law, engineering, art, history, archaeology, social sciences and medicine.

Purely Mythical: Mount Ararat

We only contract guides who we certainly know to be capable of imparting their knowledge of Turkey in an inspirational and coherent way, but first and foremost, we want our guides to have good hearts, to be unfailingly kind, attentive, patient and insightful.

Purity in Sunlight: Cleopatra Beach and the Old Fort of Alanya

Even so, those qualifications are not enough in themselves for us and we upkeep their training, ensure that they remain motivated, understand the philosophy of our Company and put it into practice with the guests.

Thus, he or she is a companion, a mentor, a confidant, concierge, a leader and a helper. The guide is there to see that the guests are well attended and to make sure that the touring runs smoothly, most comfortably and seamlessly.

On Dolunay’s staff are also guides specializing in art, history, photography, archaeology, hiking and trekking, architecture, culinary arts, in English and Spanish. Most of them are already mothers and fathers themselves, hence very child-friendly and savvy.

Our operating office monitors all programs constantly to enhance the seamlessness of all arrangements from seat assignments on flights, to advance-setting according to the preferences of our guests at hotels, restaurants and all other places.

Every Dolunay staff member is reachable 24/7.
