Testimonials

  • Referred my 4 best friends who went to Ephesus to Ertunga, he’s very knowledgeable, considerate, courteous and helpful. Met them after tour & all 4 were extremely satisfied with the safe and wonderful tour Ertunga himself guided. After that we took a flight to Cappodocia for an amazing hot air balloon ride all with the assistance of Ertunga. Will always refer Ertunga to anyone who needs a tour guide.

  • Ertunga was a fabulous tour guide! He is very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. He is professional and personable. Based on our comments, he suggested additional places we might want to visit and we were able to go to several additional sites. I would recommend Ertunga to anyone thinking about visiting Turkey!
