Ephesus private tours Ertunga Ecir

Guide profile:

My name is Ertunga Ecir. I was born in 1977 in Kusadası, where I still live. I graduated from the University of Philology, Department of English Language and Litarature.

Since I grew up and have lived all my life in a touristic town, guiding has always been my dream. Very early I understood that it would be the most convenient job for my lifestyle, because I like history, archeology, traveling and meeting different people and cultures, and the most important of everything, I love my country and want to help people see it’s beauty and understand it’s history and culture.

In 1999 I became professional tour guide, with the license issued by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Since then I have worked for many agencies as an independent guide and I have been meeting tourists from all over the world. During this ten years, I have also been organizing private tours, very often for friends of my old guests who had a tour with me and returned to their countries with nice memories.

I am looking forward to answering your questions, reading your suggestions, comments and critics and hope to welcome you in Turkey.

Ertunga Guide and driver provided a 5 star tour. He picked up the 4 of us ( grandparents and two grandsons 16 and 12 at port. We went directly to Mary's house and had the house by ourselves for a few minutes as we were there before the boat tours. The Ephesus tour was excellent. The history of the area discussion had something for each of us. The boys came home with a wider deeper understanding of a great country that is the gateway to both Europe and Asia. 5 star tour.

This by far was our best tour out of our 15 days of vacation. Ertunga made it very pleasant from the start, promptly greeted us at the dock with our name in big bold, he provided a comfortable air conditioned van with a driver, full tour attention, knowledge, patience, kindness, was aware of time, took us to a delightfully delicious lunch where he described all we ate. We enjoyed all he provided. The tour of rugs was insightful and enjoyable. He made us feel comfortable and safe so he is no.1.

Ertunga Ecir is a fantastic tour guide with a lovely sense of humor. His knowledge of Kusadasi and Ephesus was beyond our expectations. He explained the importance of the ruins in Ephesus in an interesting manner that was not too overwhelming. He went beyond the call of duty and arranged for a spectacular lunch at a villagers home in Sirince. Amazing, personable and very willing to do whatever we wanted while still offering the "should see" areas. I would definitely recommend Ertunga.

I had a fabulous tour experience with Ertunga. He is very knowledgeable, kind, patient and easygoing... He has a great knowledge about the history of Christianity and knows the best restaurants in the area (both very important for me). Book Ertunga and enjoy

Ertunga was very patient and informative. He is very knowledgeable and reliable, and I really enjoyed the tour. Would definitely recommend him to everybody.

I was impressed with Ephesus and other sights in the area (Terrace Houses is a must-see). Quick lunch in the traditional restaurant close to the Seven Sleepers was awesome (try gozleme there)
