who is hidden wonders

Hidden Wonders is a private tour company that is designed with a particular traveller in mind: a traveller who is seeking destinations and experiences that are unique, meaningful and only accessible to people with local knowledge of the region.

We can deliver our promise consistently with quality as each element of your trip is handpicked and tested by locals. All of our tours can be customised based on your preferences. Just let us know what you are after and we will take care of the rest.

where did it all start

Hidden Wonders started after a trip to my parents’ hometown, Rize, a city on the Northeast of Turkey, in 2016.

I had been to Rize several times before that trip but sometimes things don’t click until someone else points it out to you. There were four of us: me and my husband, my brother and his wife. We went to one of the villages located on an untouched plateau amongst the Kackar mountains with only a few houses that villagers use in summer time. There was no one else there but us. It felt like we opened a door and stumbled upon this hidden wonder on this little corner of the world.

What got Hidden Wonders really started though were the words from my not-spiritual-at-all husband. On the way back from the mountains he said, ‘This is the only place I’ve ever felt a spiritual connection to the land. It gives me insight into how Aboriginal people of Australia feel about their land,’ and not long after that trip Hidden Wonders was born and has been dedicated to deliver magical experiences to travellers from all corners of the world.
