We (2 independent travel couples, active retired) found Ertunga on Trip Advisor, and initially thought to hire him for our few days in Cappadocia. He told us, however, that Cappa. was beyond his area of work, but that he would be happy to arrange our tours there as well as transport with his travel industry connections, to ensure we got a quality product at a reasonable price.
He came through with excellent arrangements: tickets from Istanbul to Kayseri, and from Ankara to Istanbul were purchased in our names in Turkey when they first became available, at an excellent price not available (or easily accessible) from USA. We discussed our touring plans and the schedule he set up for us was reasonable and covered the region nicely, and at the same time not exhausting us with a 12 hr tour days. We had a lovely tour guide for 4 days (through our trip to Hadisha and on to Ankara) Her name is Emine, and her driver, whose name I had continual trouble pronouncing, was also terrific, and the tour van was perfect.
The tour Ertunga arranged provided all transfers and lunches (except beverages) until we arrived at our Istanbul hotel 4 days later. All transfer vehicles were very clean and drivers excellent. We chose our own hotels and dinner restaurants, but had we asked him to do this, I’m sure we would have done the same quality job.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ertunga to fussy friends. He is also quick to respond on the internet with answers to my various queries. And finally, we felt his price was very fair for the quality of our tour. Perhaps some day we will actually meet him, we loved Turkey and there are some places, such as Pamukkale, that are still “on the list”.
