Amazing private tour from Istanbul to Cappadocia …Lunch included!Ertunga and Maria (https://ertungaecir.com/) made our first family trip truly memorable. Maria provided prompt responses to all our queries; with over 100 emails exchanged before confirming anything! Thank-you for your patience! Ertunga is highly knowledgeable about the history and has some interesting anecdotes and myths about the regions as an added bonus to make you go hmmmm?!?!
From transfers and hotel check-ins to pick up and drop offs, Ertunga and his team took care of everything. He never gave us a chance to think about the small details as it was all taken care of ahead of time. The mini buses which were equipped with free wifi and transfer vans were all clean and very comfortable. The drivers were careful and professional.
The preset lunches were a blessing and the food and ambience at all of their selected restaurants was amazing.
We had an age range of 11 to 74 to cater for, and they were very accommodating when we had to make adjustments to our program. For our itinerary, we picked one of their preset programs and made changes to suit our needs from the number of days we stayed in one place, the sites we chose to tour, the accommodations we wanted, and we even added and subtracted cities! They gave us great, centrally located hotels to choose from, and also went the extra mile to get us accommodation at places that weren’t on their list, but we wanted.
I wish we had allocated some shopping time for the specialties of each of the regions….sigh!
Some of us enjoyed trekking while others needed door-to-door service…and all were treated with great care, kindness and patience.
Ertunga, thanks for being our personal tour guide from Kusadasi to Ankara and thanks to Osman for showing us Istanbul. We started off as clients and ended up as family friends. Thanks for making our stay in Turkey unforgettable.
Hope to be back soon!
