Further Details About Cappadocia, Pamukkale and Ephesus Tour


  • My family and I visited turkey at the end of 2010..we were very impressed with our tour guides Mr Nizam Adsiz as as well as Mrs Aylin Sekban.. Both 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.
  • We have just arrived from Turkey, we had an splendid adventure from Efesus to Capadoccia, visiting wonderful cities and archeological sites. Pamukkale, Afrodisias, Sagalassos….Konya, everything was wonderful Ertunga, Blüent and Mustafa made our journey fantastic.

  • 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 guide with a lot of patience and a wealth of information about every sight we visited. Would definately recommend him highly for a smaller or a larger group.

  • Turkey wouldn’t be the same without Ertunga…he treated us just like family and was the best private tour I could ever have !!!
