About me ….
I am Ibrahim (Ibo) Oztop from Bodrum. This is my home, I live there and I was born there. Bodrum is on the beautiful Turkish west coast and my love for the sea always connected me professionally with the element water. Maybe that’s why I was a combat diver of the Turkish army in my youth 🙂 After returning to Bodrum in the 80s I learned German from a German family and then did a language course in Germany through the Goethe Institute. That fit well with the developing tourism industry in Bodrum and so I came back to build something in this. Since I love my home very much, it was always important to me to bring nature and culture closer to travelers. So my offers have always included hiking in botany, cooking classes and diving and snorkeling from the old days of combat diving e.g. for natural sponges that grow with us.
We have now specialized in hiking and yoga trips. Our trips bring us to the attractive Turkish coast to the Greek offshore islands on always sunny routes ….
Be there. We look forward to you!
