I am the co-owner and managing director of a Turkish tour company. I was born in Adana, in the south part of Turkey. In 2010 I moved to Kusadasi (near the Ephesus) to pursue my studies and, with the many traveling opportunities that were presented, I found a passion for travel. I majored in travel management and tour guiding from Adnan Menderes University, one of the most reputed universities in Turkey. Since I graduated, I have been working with great enthusiasm as a tour guide and travel consultant.
I believe that working in this industry is not only about making a living but also about a lifestyle. I have visited almost half the world including the United States, Latin America, most of Europe, the Philippines, and Malaysia. And now, I am living in a resort town named Kusadasi, located very close to the ancient city of Ephesus, which was one of the capitals of the Roman Empire. From here, I provide travel services all around Turkey.
So, here I am waiting for your travel plan to Turkey. I hope to welcome and accommodate you in our lovely country!
Kadir Ismail's Travel Expertise
I am an active licensed professional tour guide and tour operator and apart from Turkish, I speak fluent English and Spanish. I am an expert in almost all of Turkey: I have led many tours to Istanbul, Ephesus Ruins, Pamukkale natural sources, Konya, Cappadocia and several more places in the country. I have experience with cultural and historical tours, biblical tours and more. I pride myself on the ability to add personal touches for every traveler I work with on their holiday plans. It is extremely important for me that all my guests return home with great experiences to remember.
Kadir Ismail's best travel experience
Where to start? My traveling journey started when I was around 20 and began exploring European countries. I continued with the United States and Latin American countries. The most recent were the Balkan countries; Macedonia, Serbia, and Bosnia. Maybe Asia will be next!
I will never forget a visit I took to the Ephesus Ruins right after I graduated from university. There, 2,000-year-old Roman buildings and 5,000-year-old Greek history were laid beneath my feet...
Why is Kadir Ismail the right travel expert
Most importantly, I have a great love for my country and love to share it with others. And I don't just work in tourism, but it is also my lifestyle! Since graduating, I have not stopped. I have traveled to many countries to understand diverse cultures, lifestyles, and expectations. With this experience, I can understand travelers better and I am able to prepare better schedules according to their interests and expectations.
