We have just spent a really lovely time with our guide, Duygu. Her fluent English and charming manner made the tour so relaxed and comfortable. She tailored our day to include our interest in artisanal and historical Istanbul in Beyoglu. We found out good places to eat, to shop for food and to explore where we could find creative and artistic designers selling objects and furniture. On top of that, Duygu showed us history in the streets of Beyoglu and was such a wonderful host we felt we were visiting a friend overseas. We will surely remember it as one of the highlights of our visit to Istanbul.
