Filiz Tütüncü Çağlar

Guide profile:

Visiting Istanbul is joining its adventure. It is unpredictable. You never know what surprise is awaiting for you next. I am an archaeologist, a PhD candidate in art history, but above all, a story-teller, who loves telling the story of this city. If what you're looking for is a professional guide that has not only extensive historical, cultural and political knowledge, but also a quirky sense of humour, I'm your ever-helpful humble companion! I will help you unveil the mysteries, charms, textures & tastes of this great old city, while ensuring you are well-entertained and cared for in its chaotic yet magical atmosphere. ;)

Filiz was the highlight of our trip to Turkey. She is an amazing guide that made us fall more in love with a beautiful country, rich history, and wonderful people. Filiz is an experienced archaeologist, highly educated, and speaks English like a native speaker. We were so impressed with her, and had such a great time visiting, we hired her for a second day. We’re going back to Turkey and we wouldn’t dream of doing it without Filiz as our guide.

We had a wonderful day with Filiz, a lovely lady who took us to the main sites of the city. She went above and beyond our expectations in taking us through this amazing city's history.
