We spent 9 days in Turkey, stayed at Istanbul, Cappadocia, Kusadasi.
Starting from airport pickup in Istanbul, Maria did a marvelous job managing our group who had 3 separate arrivals stretching from the afternoon to past midnight. The Istanbul tour guide Osman was very professional, and went out his way to show us more of Istanbul than was on the planned itinerary.
Ertunga was our tour guide for Ephesus, Pamukkale, and Aphrodisias. He is very knowledgeable (coming from a history major, no surprise here), considerate, and patient. We had a free day in Kusadasi and followed his suggestion rented the van to nearby national park for a swim and hike. That morning, Ertunga came to the hotel to take us to the local bakery to buy fresh sandwich for lunch. He also told the driver to stop by a family market on the way for us to pick up some fruit. We had such delicious lunch and had wonderful time that day.
I would highly recommend Ertunga and his team to anyone wants to tour Turkey. Our memories of Turkey start with Ertunga and Maria.
This company was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. My husband and myself and 2 friends were on a cruise which called in at kusadasi(Ephesus) and Istanbul .The tours on the ship are pretty expensive and not always exactly what you want to see. Both tours we booked through Ertunga were tailor made to our requests and we had an executive mini bus for the 4 of us. The guides were extremely knowledgable friendly and spoke excellent English. I would definitely book with them again if we visited Turkey again.
Ertunga Ecir gave us a tour of Ephesus ruins, museum and surrounding area that we will never forget! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Turkey and answered all our questions in as much detail as we wanted. Ertunga picked us up directly from our cruise ship in a new, air-conditioned van. He had a separate driver, which enabled us to be dropped close to all attractions. Ertunga tailored our visit to see the sites we requested and made some suggestions as well. The ruins were truly incredible and Ertunga brought them to life with his descriptions. The museum was a cool and quick visit that was worthwhile. We asked Ertunga for a restaurant suggestion for lunch and he brought us to a terrific kebab place that took great care of us and the food was fantastic! Truly a wonderful tour!
Then we moved to Cappodocia, where we had Sibel as our guide, again excellent tours of the area. My husband was unwell mid way thru one day and she and the driver looked after both us brilliantly, even taking us to her house for a cup of tea, to rest for a little while. Ended in Istanbul with Osman, fantastic. The tour was planned by Maria so we saw the best in each area. And on the way to the airport to come home, Ertunga called to make sure all was well.
Ertunga helped with hotel rooms, money changing, and helped get a great price at the carpet factory. And we travelled in a luxury air conditioned vehicle.
Loved it! We had Layla as a tour guide and she was wonderful! The transport was super comfortable and safe. We are a young couple and had a private tour on our own and she customized the whole tour for us… She even took us to her favorite restaurant and baklava place and both were amazing. Apart from that she knew a lotttt about the history and area!
Everything was great! Very educational yet super fun! Highly recommend!
Mahmut was completely flexible and let us set the pace and choose each destination, depending on our interests and energy levels. His company was so enjoyable that my young girls still speak of him!
We couldn’t have asked for a better tour and I can highly recommend this company to anyone planning a trip to any part of Turkey.Visited July 2015
From transfers and hotel check-ins to pick up and drop offs, Ertunga and his team took care of everything. He never gave us a chance to think about the small details as it was all taken care of ahead of time. The mini buses which were equipped with free wifi and transfer vans were all clean and very comfortable. The drivers were careful and professional.
The preset lunches were a blessing and the food and ambience at all of their selected restaurants was amazing.
We had an age range of 11 to 74 to cater for, and they were very accommodating when we had to make adjustments to our program. For our itinerary, we picked one of their preset programs and made changes to suit our needs from the number of days we stayed in one place, the sites we chose to tour, the accommodations we wanted, and we even added and subtracted cities! They gave us great, centrally located hotels to choose from, and also went the extra mile to get us accommodation at places that weren’t on their list, but we wanted.
I wish we had allocated some shopping time for the specialties of each of the regions….sigh!
Some of us enjoyed trekking while others needed door-to-door service…and all were treated with great care, kindness and patience.
Ertunga, thanks for being our personal tour guide from Kusadasi to Ankara and thanks to Osman for showing us Istanbul. We started off as clients and ended up as family friends. Thanks for making our stay in Turkey unforgettable.
Hope to be back soon!
