Full description

On this guided walking food tour you will travel around Eminonu, its intricate alleyways and hidden corners and go off the beaten paths while eating and enjoying most of delicious food tastings.

With this culinary walk, you will visit bakeries, pastry shops and Turkish pizza restaurants as well as eating a bowl of traditional soup; sharing Turkish-style breakfast with a black tea; tasting a freshly baked bagel; stopping by a local restaurant for sampling an authentic Turkish pizza; or finding some artisan’s shops to visit and mingle with locals picking up their daily products from the markets in a labyrinth of streets. It will be all about real people, real food, and real places.

A visit to the Spice Market followed by Asian part of Istanbul. This indoor market features shops offering a variety of spices, flavored teas, Turkish delight, and nuts, as well as ceramics, household goods, small souvenirs, and more. As soon as you enter, you’ll marvel at the colors and aromas of Turkish food offerings.

Kemal exceeded our expectations and deserves special thanks. He immediately put us at ease with his friendly, welcoming personality. Kemal provided a wealth of information on local customs and traditions associated with the food we enjoyed from why Turkish tea is served in a tulip-shaped glass to the history behind a famous baklava bakery. We enjoyed soup, excellent bread & kebabs, Turkish pizza and more, served in small cafes and shops frequented by locals. A great storyteller, Kemal never hesitated to patiently answer our questions with a smile and an occasional brief history lesson. And we were particularly impressed with his genuine pride in his country. Bottom line, Kemal's knowledge of the history of Turkish food and related historical events made this a tour to remember.

We had an absolutely amazing day with Gamze our tour guide. We visited so many places, both foodie destinations and tourist attractions. Gamze is so passionate and knowledgeable about Istanbul and Turkey overall and was very friendly and warm. We tried so many different foods - Turkish coffee, profiteroles, desserts, salads, wraps, sesame bagels, tea, and of course many types of Turkish delight. Such a wonderful tour, a real highlight of our trip.
