    Plenty of food will be sampled along the way: baklava, kebabs, desserts, Turkish delight, simit, Turkish tea, mezes, olives, delicatessen stops, pastrami, clotted cream, cheese, and more!

    We had a highly enjoyable and delicious tour of the Asian side of Istanbul, with our fantastic guide Cetin (an ex-chef!). The food we sampled was both local and full of flavors, and we really appreciated the range of flavors and tastes we were able to sample. Not only did we learn about the food we did try, but also a bit about other foods in other parts of the city that we should go back to try, and we got a nice list of great restaurants to try. I would definitely return for this again!

We had a great afternoon, in which we were not only shown the rich Turkish cuisine, but we also learned a lot about the country and the people. Our tour guide showed us restaurants that a normal tourist would not find and would therefore miss the culinary highlights of the country. You should bring hunger, as there is a lot to eat. Everything was freshly prepared and tasted very good.

Late start but great tour

Our tour guide was awesome, some miss communication about the time and meeting point but got it figured out and had a blast. Tasted foods I wouldn't know to find or try on my own. Got to see a mosque and learn about the culture. I love food. This tour was great

Very informative!

Our guide gave us a great deal of history on the Ottoman Empire and Suleyman. We really enjoyed the tour.
