Bilge was born in Turkey and grew up on the southwest coast of Asia Minor, surrounded with magnificent mountains and historic sites. Not only does DuVine give her a great opportunity to participate in diverse outdoor activities, but she also loves meeting new people, learning new things, cycling, hiking, and sailing. Bilge studied Classical Archaeology at the Mediterranean University and joined excavations in Patara, Turkey. During her university education, she worked in fields as diverse as air traffic control and sports training. After graduation, her education and hobbies prepared her to be a tour guide in archaeological and natural contexts. Since completing the Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s guiding course in 2007, she has been licensed to lead sailing, hiking, cultural, and family tours.
