Hi, my name is Faruk and I was born in Nazilli where is near the ancient city of Nysa, in 1987.

After 8 years primary education, I started studying in tourism. Before university education, I completed Tourism Management High School in Antalya where is the old Pamphylia region, is ancient city of Attalia.

In 2005, I had graduated from high school and the same year, preferred to study in Adnan Menderes University School of Travel Agency Management and Tourist Guiding Program in Kusadasi. I completed my education in May 2009 and started to work as a tour operation staff who organizes tours in Tura Turizm which has been local agency of RCCL, CCI, NCL and Azamara Cruise Lines in Turkey. I have BA degree from this program. I have studied Archaeology & Anatolian Civilizations, Byzantion Art, Art of Seljuks, Ottoman Art, History of Religious, Special Interest Tourism, Sustainable Tourism, etc. . .

Since I have started studying in tourism, I worked different positions and branches of tourism industry such as in hotels, incoming agencies, airport transportation, reservation agency. Also I have been in USA, RI to improve my English as a Work & Travel Student in 2006 summer for 4 months.

I got my Professional Tourist Guide License, which was given by Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey, in November 2009 and then I started to work as a guide in Istanbul and Kusadasi.

When has been read all these qualifications by you, it can be clearly seen that my educational background completed with my professional career.

Cause I’m the youngest guide, you can figure out that my capability is not enough to be guide. But I have lots of information and also experience about Turkey Tourism Business.
