The best of Istanbul
nsababu

This food tour is a must! Istanbul is full of amazing food, but not all of it is created equal. This tour highlights some of the truly best on not one, but two continents. It's quite an experience. Come open minded and with an empty stomach because you will eat, eat, and eat some more. I had zero complaints and actually had a hard time deciding which stop was my absolute favorite because they all were so different and delicious.

Mehmet and Leyla are amazing guides. We had an awesome time learning & eating authentic Turkish cuisines. The food tasted great, and the places we went to were clean. I think we ended up going to about 10 different places, and each has something delicious to offer. It was our first time doing Food Tour and we were very glad we did it. Thank you to Mehmet & Leyla that we were able to try the best food in Istanbul. - Derlie

Excellent. Our guide Ali was brilliant, very personable and knowledgeable and good company. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and trying all the foods which were very plentiful. I have no criticism of the day save to say that there was so much food to try that at the end we could not face eating it. Perhaps less tastings and slightly cheaper would be better

Ali was an amazing guide, warm, friendly and very knowledgeable! This tour was an awesome way to experience our first day in Istanbul. My idea of heavan! You were introduced to countless delicious tasters throughout the day, as well as providing a great way to orientate yourself with this vast and diverse city! Take Ali’s advice and pace yourself, as he manages to introduce your palate to a vast amount of interesting and traditional food, some of the best I’ve had the pleasure of tasting! A must do experience !!
