Cem Inal

South America Trip Leader

Cem was born and raised in Turkey, and started guiding when he was 18 years of age. He used to guide mostly rafting and sea kayaking, but once he arrived in Chile, in 2005, he has guided much more hiking. With around 20 years of experience guiding, Cem has seen it all, and can handle any situation out there in the 'field'. 

Cem is relatively new to Active Adventures, and we are so lucky to have him on board. He has been a trip leader for us most recently in South America. When he's not guiding (which isn't much of the time by the sound of his busy life!) Cem can be found listening to music, cooking, and enjoying carpentry work.

Simply said: Excellent

We’ve booked our trip with Active Adventures from NZ but ended up with Galakiwi Adventures as the implementing party. A bit confusing at the beginning but it turned out quite well.
Our trip through the Galapagos Islands started in San Cristobal, followed by Floreana, Isabela and ended in Santa Cruz.
We booked an all-inclusive trip and it turned out to be a very good decision. In fact we realized only after a few days how convenient is was to have everything organized for you and how much time you can actually safe. Starting with swimming gear that is provided as part of the package. Transportation to the ferry, getting on & off, having the transportation ready when you arrive, all those organizational aspects are taken care off which makes travelling from island to island very easy and smooth. Then hotels are ready, check in & out done super fast, luggage’s pick up etc. all organized. Lunch and/or dinners arranged in advance to maximize the vacation time and reduce wasted time to a bare minimum. What else to say besides that the organization was simply said excellent!!!
Then we had Zambo our tour guide, a fantastic & very knowledgeable person.
Not only questions from adults were not a problem for him, our kids and the other families kids who were also part of the group constantly came up with all sorts of questions and somehow, Zambo always had an answer.
All of this made it a great vacation; we enjoyed it a lot
