Experienced Professional Tour Guide in Kusadasi Faruk Ozer.
I was born in Izmir in the Aegean Region-the cradle of civilizations-in 1953. I graduated from the Aegean University, the Faculty of Economical Sciences-Department of Tourism in Izmir. In my youth I had been in many countries in Europa, such as Denmark, Germany, Hungary and Poland. I worked between 1983 and 2003 at the transportation department of the Nato-base in Izmir. In 1988-1989 I attended the professional guide course organized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Izmir, whereby I also participated on a round trip in Turkey.
While I had my full-time work, I also worked as tour guide in the weekends and in the vacation periods. Since my retirement in 2003, I dedicated myself to my dream job- beeing a tour guide in Turkey.
I am based in Kusadasi- the popular cruise harbour in Turkey. Mainly I take the travellers from the harbour or from the hotels to such sites as Ephesus, The House of Mary, Priene, Miletus, Didyma, Bafa-Lake, Bodrum, Izmir ( Smyrna) and Pergamon. I am also on round trips in Turkey, stopping at such sites as Cappadocia, Istanbul, Troia and Antalya.
I have the license to guide in three languages-English, German and Polish. I consider my self as an experienced, friendly and knowledable tour guide who can offer both a tour guide’s insight into Turkey and life experience.
I hope that you will give me a chance to be your tour guide in my country. I may also assist in providing transport means.
