Tourism is down in Turkey in general, and especially so in Ephesus. This is because people are unnecessarily afraid to come here, and this has caused all the cruise ship companies to cancel their cruises to Turkey for the year of 2017. This makes it...More

As a solo female traveler, I will admit I was a little nervous visiting Istanbul to attend a wedding. Ertunga quickly put my mind at ease. The people of Turkey were very kind and I felt very safe. Eutunga was a wealth of information with...More

What an excursion in Turkey with the great knowledge from Ertunga. We were met promptly at the time advised by Ertunga and from the time we got in his very comfortable mini bus the history of the area started. Driving to the Virgin Mary house...More

We chose Ertunga based on the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Ertunga met us right outside the cruise port at appointed time. I immediately liked him as he was polite and courteous. He spoke excellent English and we had no problem...More

I arranged a private tour with Ertunga Ecir (Ephesus, Pammukale, Pergammon) in Sept 2016. The planning experience with Maria is exceptional. She is always willing to work with you on your needs. Maria and Ertunga give recommendations on offtrack tours such as Askepion hospital ruins,...More

So sorry just seeing this. If you mean Kusadasi port, it'ss not far. If I recall right, around 20mins.
Hi Ertunga! Good am! I've read so much good things about you and your tour and would love you to be our guide as well (only you 😊). My husband and I would love to visit Ephesus, Pamukkale, and Cappadocia this October (after 3 nights in Istanbul). I was thinking of 2 days in Ephesus/Pergamum/Pamukkale/Heiropolis and any other places nearby that's drivable (maybe Troy?) and that you recommend. Would 2 nights be enough? Also, do you have any recommendations for hotels (good deal, very nice/clean but cheap/reasonable 4-5-star)? Would you recommend doing Ephesus first, then Cappadocia (or vice versa? or does it matter?); we plan to go to Santorini thereafter. Would it be cheaper to fly from Izmir to Santorini? In Cappadocia, would Sibel be available to tour us as well? I would love us to stay in a nice cave hotel, explore the cave houses and underground city, ride on the hot air balloon, open museum, etc? Would 2 nights be enough? We would love to see as much as we can and learn a lot about their history, at the same time enjoy the whole experience at a good pace. We plan to arrive on October 1or 2 in Istanbul and stay there for 3 nights (any recommended tourguide?), therafter the abovementioned places. Please let me know what you think; I would love to hear your recommendations. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you Ertunga! Vanessa 😊

Dear Sir, We are a couple planning to visit Turkey from June 30 to July 6. We have been to Istanbul before. So this time we want to take a 6 Day tour in Turkey starting on 7/1 with hotel pickup to airport visiting major sites like Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, etc. to return to Istanbul evening of 7/6 to catch our midnight flight home. Grateful if you can plan a package for us with full itinerary, hotels, air/land connections and your best price for 2. Many thanks, Robert Yau..
