Full description
Sample some of Istanbul’s favorite foods on a relaxed 4-hour evening walking tour. Meet an expert local guide and visit four much loved food stops as you stroll through historical Sultanahmet to Taksim Square across the Golden Horn. Absorb the evening bustle and sights of Sultanahmet. Enjoy sunset views of the city from the Galata Bridge and try staples such as fried mussels and baklava, the seductively sweet honey-soaked filo parcels that are a Turkish favorite, along the way. Numbers are limited to 14, ensuring personalized attention from your guide.

Start your 4-hour evening tour with a pick-up from your central Istanbul hotel, and head into the heart of historical Sultanahmet. As you walk, hear from your guide about Istanbul’s history and how it has left its legacy on the city’s cuisine. Wander through the bustling streets, passing some of Sultanahmet’s landmarks, and get insider tips from your guide on great places to eat and must try delicacies.

While you talk and absorb the evening ambience, make your way to Taksim Square and enjoy four food stops to sample some classic local dishes. Samples may vary, but expect to taste favorites such as a mouth-watering lamb shish kebab, a juicy meatball and a fried mussel kebab; a string of lightly battered mussels threaded onto a skewer. As dusk falls, enjoy the magical sunset views over Sultanahmet’s minarets from the Galata Bridge, and take in the sight of the Galata Tower on the opposite bank. Drink in the buzz around the food vendors and restaurants, and make a final stop to taste some classic Turkish baklava. Sink your teeth into these super sweet honey and nut filo parcels that were much loved by the Ottoman sultans. After approximately 4-hours later, finish with a drop-off at your hotel.
