Ertunga E.

Kusadasi, Aydin, Turkey

My name is Ertunga and I was born in 1977 in Kusadası, where I still live.

I graduated from the University of Philology, Department of English Language and Literature. I worked as an English Teacher for few years but I understood that it is not really what I wanted so I finished my short teaching career. Then I decided to study History and Archaeology and use my knowledge on this field.

In 2001 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 fourteen years, I have also been organizing private tours, and working with ToursByLocals is perfect option for me.

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, archaeology, 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 and at the same time, earning money from what I really enjoy doing; is a great feeling.

I have guiding experience in all areas in Turkey, but my favorite tours are definitely those in the Aegean and Istanbul. If you woukd like to have a multy day tour in Turkey, you are allways wellcome to contact me to discuss your program.

I am looking forward to meeting you in my country and showing you all its beauties!

A Recent Review of this guide

Ertunga is a fabulous guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our time w/ him. Not only did he organize a 10-day tour that met our specific interests, but his flexibility was appreciated when a late itinerary change was necessary. Ertunga is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, passionate about his country and its history, and his English is excellent - we would not hesitate to recommend him. We were also impressed w/ the driver and the vehicle provided. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we had a lot of fun too!
