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 regards to both history and culture. I greatly enjoyed my time with him and can't recommend him more! I look forward to returning for touring more of the country with his guidance.

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.
