Tayfun A.

Ulsteinvik, Møre og Romsdal, Norway

When I decided to study political science and international relations, my dream was to be a diplomat and have a chance to learn about new cultures and work in foreign countries.

In my sophomore year at the university, I travelled to Moscow to represent my country in an international student conference and it was my first trip to a foreign country.
There I realized that travelling was my passion, not being a diplomat. However I graduated and began to work in a travel company in Istanbul where I had the opportunity to travel all around the world.

Before residing in Norway, I had worked as a tour leader and a guide in many countries. I come to know and meet many people from different cultures and nationalities which contributed me to have a broader sense of the world and gain precious experience.

I work as a licensed guide in our unique city of Ålesund and in the surroundings which always rank high in Norway's top-ten-must-see lists. I love to tell about the history, art, architecture, stories and general facts about the city and the country which I love to live in.

Credentials

I have BA degree in political science and international relations. I had worked as a tour leader for many groups in more than 40 countries before I resided in Norway. I have completed the official tour guide course by Ålesund Guide Association and have been working as a licensed tour guide in English and Turkish languages.
