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. At the end, I decided to create this web site, as the best way to thank people for recommending me to their friends, and to give enough information to those who are interested in visiting Turkey.
I am looking forward to answering your questions, reading your suggestions, comments and critics and hope to welcome you in Turkey.
