For the last three years, I have been based in Mardin and take pride in guiding people around this lovely Mesopotamian city that is on the list to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is famous for the beautiful Mesopotamian plain view, cultural diversity, and monumental buildings, and I will show you around all of these on my online experience.
