We are family of 10 members with kids and we had Mr Ertunga as our tour guide and i cant describe how understanding he was and accepting every change in the plan in a minute before our trip and even things off the track. HONESTLY cant recommend him enough!!! Best tour guide ever and my trip was great as i asked for exactly even better than I expected.
So thank you a lot for all of the things and the great adventures Mr Ertunga see you soon again in a different trip.

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 a completely great experience right now and an opportunity to see these amazing ruins without elbowing aside other tourists. Take a leisurely tour through Ephesus, with a great personal guide for a reasonable price, and you will have had an experience you will cherish forever. Don't be afraid, the Turkish people will make sure your stay is great.

We hired our guide Ertunga Ecir, to guide and teach us about all we were seeing at Ephesus. I had done some homework by reading the guide books, but he was so knowledgeable and kind enough to explain everything so well. It really tied together what I was seeing and what I had read about before touring Ephesus.

He communicated so well before we arrived and was promptly at the gate despite us being 10 minutes earlier than the agreed upon time. He first made sure our arrangements for our cab to return to pick us up was understood by the cab driver and got the driver's number to let him know when we were about done so we wouldn't wait. This service alone was so appreciated and was a precursor to the attention we received on the whole tour.

You have to understand that guides in Turkey are the best in the world because they are professionals who must have a degree from the university and proven language skills. They must pass a battery of rigorous testing to qualify for a guides license. We met many Turkish people that were working toward this goal and all said it's difficult to become a guide due to these standards. That means that when you hire someone like Ertunga Ecir, you are getting the very best. This was even more true when we hired a guide in Istanbul for two days.

Hire a guide in Turkey, it's the best money you will spend on your vacation! I promise!

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
