Our guide was Selcuk Ersan and it was a small group. Selcuk was very informative and a lot of fun to talk to about food and everything else about Turkey. A great day.

Lovely tour with Kursat that covered both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. It was pretty special to step off a boat into another continent. I still daydream about the stuffed mussel with lemon and the stuffed eggplant dolma.

This was a great tour. Our guide, Tanor, did a wonderful job. Not only did we taste a lot of different street foods, we went to several areas of the city to do tastings. We experienced several of the city's transportation options and went into neighborhoods we would not have known to explore on our own. We went to some neighborhoods that were primarily residential and experienced more of what the families there might eat on the street. We also went to a business district and tried what a business person might grab on the street for lunch. Finally, we tried "wet burgers." This is a bit like a chopped beef sandwich that has been smothered in BBQ sauce on the inside and outside. It was actually good. I would recommend this tour as a great way to see the city while tasting great food. Also, we went to the most famous baklava place in Turkey. They must have had 50 different kinds of baklava.

El tour ha sido excelente. Es ver Estambul desde otro punto de vista y es una actividad muy recomendable. Nuestro guía Yaman ha sido de gran ayuda y muy atento. Los sabores de Estambul son mágicos y probamos deliciosas recetas que, de otra manera, no habríamos probado. Gran tour y gran guía.
