Our family of 4 booked a private tour through Ertunga for our week-long vacation to Turkey and we definitely did not leave disappointed! The tour was perfectly tailored to our interests and catered well to our schedule.

Ertunga was a wonderful guide; incredibly knowledgeable and easy to understand. Our personal tours with him around Istanbul, Ephesus and Hierapolis were chock full of interesting facts and historical anecdotes. Although he could not guide us personally around Cappadocia, he arranged for an equally great guide named Mehmet to show us around the area.

We were initially skeptical of traveling to 3 cities over the span of our short visit but the trip was well planned and we never once felt rushed or overwhelmed. A perfect balance of sightseeing and time to relax; just the way a vacation should be.

All the accommodation that was arranged met our standards and the tour as a whole was, without a hint of a doubt, great value for money. Our friends and family expressed concern for our safety upon hearing we would be visiting Turkey. However, now that we've been there ourselves, we've learned the true beauty of Turkish culture and its people. We would definitely encourage anyone to visit this gem (often misunderstood by the media) and, of course, recommend for them to book with Ertunga!

Booked Ephesus day trip via Cruise Critic. We were met at the dock driven around and shown the very best of Ephesus. The itinerary has loosely planned we all had a say in what we wanted to see. The commentary was excellent the guide had real enthusiasm & knowledge. Everything about the trip was excellent including lunch. Would highly recommend this company to anyone

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 we were made aware of everything we were seeing on the scenic drive. We then went to Ephesus and was unbelievable....I can say this excursion was the highlight of our trip. Ertunga then took us to a restaurant for lunch where we got to enjoy some home cooking and tried many of the country flavors...top notch. We then visited the Ephesus museum and went to a leather store. The leather stop I could have done without, we made it back to the ship just as expected on time My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with the services provided by Ertunga's company and highly recommend. Completely 10 stars.....thank you for such a great day. Lu & Rick, Canada

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 communicating with him, We had hired him for a whole day private tour of Ephesus and surrounding areas.

He is very knowledgeable as a guide and he explained the history of all the archeological sites in detail. He answered all our questions and also provided a lot of background on Turkish history and culture.

He used a large van for the tour and it was very specious and comfortable for the 4 of us. By the end of the day, we became friends.

Highly recommend going with Ertunga if you are in Kusadasi. You won't regret it.

We were extremely happy with the 14 day tour we organised with Ertunga and Maria his wife over a 6 month period via the internet.
They were prompt with communication and happy to take on board where we would like to go.

We went from Istabnbul to the black sea,then down to Mt Nemrut,Cappadocia,Antalya,Pamukkale and ended in Selcuk to visit Ephesus..
The twelve setter BMW van was extremely comfortable especially as there was only four of us and Mustafa the driver was a very careful thoughful driver. A bonus is that there is free wifi as well.
We saw sites that other people would not have seen if on a conventional tour eg Sagalassos.

Our accomadation was a mixture of B&B's and hotels which were all extremely good.
Ertunga and Mustafa were very keen to show us and let us eat the local food which were all delicious. We organised with Ertunga that he provided breakfast and lunch in the quote and we found our own evening meal which we like to do.

It is with sadness that with the troubles (which we saw none) that tourism is devastated and I would like to emphasis that we did not feel endangered at anytime.
I would thoroughy reccommend Ertunga as a very knowledgable and polite guide.

We have travelled and lived in many different countries and I would like to say that we found Turkey to be vibrant,clean,great food,unbelievable architecture so please do yourself a favour and visit.

Thankyou Ertunga,Maria and Mustafa for an unforgettable experience we will be back.
