  • I just completed a private 2-day tour with Ertunga Ecir as my guide. We went to Hieropolis/Pamukkale, Aphrodisias, Miletos, Didyma, and Priene (skipped Ephesus, because I have been there several times already), and he was absolutely wonderful–friendly, prompt, very reliable and knowledgeable, flexible, and has excellent English. I can’t imagine a more helpful and comfortable guide to work with. he was just great, and I strongly recommend him to anyone needing a guide anywhere in Turkey!

  • 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.
