  • We used Turkey private tour 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

  • We were very impressed with our tour guides. They spoke good english and we managed to develop a friendship with both of them which made the tours more enjoyable. Will definitely be going back to Turkey.
  • Enjoyed our recent 22 day trip in Western Turkey visiting many Christian History sites. Ertunga was able to knit together much disparate info, suggesting changes as we went along to compensate for weather problems, etc. Best parts of the trip for me was Cappadocia and Priene.

  • Having already been to Ephesus, this cruise visit we arranged a private tour with Ertunga Ecir to visit Didyma, Miletus and Priene, all located just South of Kusadasi and easily covered in roughly 6 hours. Excellent tour, interesting historical sites with great explanation.
  • 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”.

  • We were privileged to have Ertunga, and his excellent and courteous driver, Omer, with us for nine days on our recent biblical Turkey tour. Ertunga provided a superb private tour experience. His extensive knowledge of Greek, Roman, Christian, Ottoman and recent Turkish history was an invaluable support to the site visits, while his care of us, thoughtful restaurant and hotel choices, and the comfortable travel in a Mercedes van with wifi and water always available, enhanced the tour considerably. Thank you, Ertunga, for making it all possible, enjoyable and safe.
