On this 4-hour guided walking food tour you will travel around Eminönü, its intricate alleyways and hidden corners and go off the beaten paths while eating and enjoying more than 14 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 follows the Grand Bazaar. 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.

Fantastic!!5 star recommendation for this guide

My guide Ahmet was extremely knowledgeable very informative professional courteous.i was a little leery about booking online ahead of time but it was the best tour I took..head and shoulders above rest AND the company didn't cheat on the price unlike a tour company I booked face to face If this friendly professional is representative of the agency they are lucky to have him as an employee.VERY highly recommend for knowledge and courtesy

It's a great experience. Ahmet, out your guide, is a very knowledgeable person. We explained us, with great detail, the history of the places we visited. Also, when we asked him to have a real non-tourist-trap street food experience, we took us to a very fantastic inexpensive local place. It was amazing. He is highly recommended.

Wir hatten einen schönen Ausflug mit einen tollen Guide.

Wir wurden pünktlich abgeholt und haben viel Wissenswertes über Land und Leute von unserer freundlichen Reiseleiterin erfahren. Die Bootstour hat uns gut gefallen. Natürlich hätte die Verständigung mit einem deutschsprachigen Guide,wie eigentlich bestellt, besser geklappt, aber unsere Reiseleiterin hat sich sehr bemüht diese Lücke zu schließen. Danke an Gunnür(?). Der Gewürzbasar war sehr interessant und die Proben sehr schmackhaft. So konnten schon die ersten Mitbringsel gekauft werden. Wir werden Istanbul nach den drei Tagen in schöner Erinnerung behalten und kommen vielleicht noch einmal wieder.
