Excellent personalized tour of Turkey

Can’t speak highly enough of Ertunga and Maria and their tour guides. We had a 9 night tour of Turkey from Kusadsi to Cappodocia ending in Istanbul. From the moment we arrived Ertunga looked after us extremely well. His tours of Ephesus, Aphrodisias, Pergamon and Pamukklle, were fantastic. He has huge knowledge of ancient and modern history. Lunch was included and we had excellent local food everywhere.
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.

Amazing! Must do!

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!

A fantastic tour that cannot be more highly recommended!

We were on a cruise in the Mediterranean recently and one of the ports of call was Kusadasi. There is so much to see in the area that we didn’t want to be limited by the excursions offered by the cruise liner (inflexible and charged at exorbitant prices). Based on reviews on TripAdvisor, we contacted Turkey Private Tours. The response to my initial query via email was professional and helpful, and the price of the tour was so reasonable. Mahmut, our guide, met our party of seven at the pier and proceeded to take us on the most wonderful tour. We travelled in a spacious, airconditioned bus with a driver and were able to beat the large tour buses to all the sights so that they weren’t too crowded. Mahmut’s knowledge of the area, the sites and their history is incredible.
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

Best Private Tour in Turkey – Ertunga

Amazing private Tour of Turkey from Istanbul to Cappadocia …Lunch included!Ertunga and Maria (http://ertungaecir.com/) made our first family trip truly memorable. Maria provided prompt responses to all our queries; with over 100 emails exchanged before confirming anything! Thank-you for your patience! Ertunga is highly knowledgeable about the history and has some interesting anecdotes and myths about the regions as an added bonus to make you go hmmmm?!?!

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!

Best guide for Kusadasi and surroundings – no boubt !

Ertunga is a great guide, super friendly, very big knowledge of the area and very pleasant to be around. He arrived with a driver and a Mercedes van, good space for the 3 of us. He made the tour as we went along, so we did see exactly what we wanted, and as our son is only 4 years old, we did have to speed up some places. All made possible by Ertunga, though I am sure he could tell much more in each place, since his knowledge seems extreme. Be sure to book with Ertunga.

Amazing Istanbul

We used Turkey Private tours to do a day tour of Istanbul. We had an excellent guide, Oz, who was so knowledgeable. With only three in our group, we were able to get around the crowds. We were in Mini van with air con. & saw all the top sights, and were given options during the day, so we could change itinerary to suit what we wanted to see, and stay as long as we wanted. It was excellent

Overwhelming tour to Kusadali

Booking our guide Ertunga was one of the best things that we could do for our tour to Kusadasi. After hiring Ertunga for the tour, we were picked up by Mercedes Van with ACs on and a professional trained driver. Ertunga accompanied us and his knowledge about the places was marvelous. You must take the services of Ertunga if you wish to go through the depth of ancient city and Terrace house. We feel great to take his services and will recommend these services to other people too.

Facinating place

Facinating place its worth it to have a tour guide to give you history of place but if you want to do it alone plenty of tours to follow around. Have comfortable shoes very uneven ground but worth it.

Perfect Whirlwind Tour

Don’t miss the opportunity to book with Ertunga. We only had 5 hours in Kusadasi but had a “must see” list that would take all day on a normal bus tour. We had pick up at the pier in a more than comfortable Mercedes van complete with professional driver, A/C and water. The knowledge that Ertunga has is incredible and his point of view as a local is phenomenal. If you want to see the ancient city, Terrace Houses etc…. this company is not to be missed. We were lucky to book with him and very thankful.
