Full description
Meet your guide at the airport and set off on a leisurely 5-hour private tour of Istanbul's streets, stopping along the way at several local markets, bakeries and specialty food shops. The exact itinerary will vary based on your group’s preference and the season, but you can expect to sample all the important staples of the Turkish diet, such as famous tantuni, the flatbread, lahmacun and agean style meze. If you are feeling adventurous maybe try some liver wrap kebaps! Continue to the fish market where you can sample stuffed or fried mussels as well as pickles. Of course you will taste some of Turkey's famous deserts, Künefe, a crispy, cheese-filled dessert made with ‘kadayıf’ or Turkish Baklava with different flavours. Visit a local confectionery where Turkish delight has been made and sold for four generations and meet the family upholding this tradition. A Turkish food tour would not be complete without sampling Turkish coffee, so you will also taste the famous coffee before you return to airport. Come hungry for this fun 5-hour private tour, where you’ll munch on some of the best snacks and learn a lot about the history of the Istanbul from your local guide. It’s advisable to wear or bring clothing that is weather appropriate depending on the season, as you’ll be outside for at least 3 hours. It’s also recommended you book the tour at least 48 hours in advance.
