A leading project of Fatih Municipality, the ‘Volunteer Tourism Envoy’ project received heavy attendance once again during the eighth period of its organization.
Implemented by Fatih Municipality for the first time, the Volunteer Tourism Envoy project gives the students the opportunity to improve their second language. Assigned in the areas where tourists are densely populated in the Historical Peninsula of Fatih, the volunteer envoys answer the questions from tourists and help them resolve any issues. With over 1,500 applications this year, 450 tourism envoys have been selected to be assigned in the project. Receiving historical information from the renowned historian Talha Uğurluel first, the envoys of tourism started their duty in Beyazıt Grand Bazaar, Divan Road, Sultanahmet Square, Hagia Sofia, Gülhane and Eminönü Square as of July 3.
