Funda makes thigs happen! She is originally from Istanbul, Turkey and is fluent in English, Turkish and Arabic. She completed Ataturk Faculty of Education in English at Marmara University and worked in the industry for over 7 years, but decided to experience something new and became a trusted inbound/outbound tour guide. She wanted to see more and decided that Turkey was a bit small for her at the moment.

Funda ended up in Cape Town 12 years ago and immediately fell in love with the Mother City. She completed her guiding course and became a professional tour guide in South Africa as well. In 2013, Funda established African Diamond Tours, together with her husband, and became a proud partner of Cullinan Holdings LTD.

Creating family traditions by cooking for her household with whom she shares with her husband, her daughter, two cats and a loveable dog.
