Thank you for taking your time to leave such a positive review for us. Our job feels like pleasure when our clients are happy. Our guide Errol has a great passion to introduce his guests to Turkish Cuisine, local foods and drinks and it is great to know that his service is so appreciated. We hope to see you again soon in our lovely city and wish you and your family our best.

Excellent introduction to Turkish cuisine

We had an excellent evening with our guide, Erol. We visited a number of restaurants, bars and shops in Beyoglu, and the tour included a lot of historical information. The food we tasted was excellent, and ranged from mezze platters to confectionery. The tour felt very well thought out, our guide was a local expert, and we felt we gained a great insight into the food culture of Istanbul.

Excellent food tour!

My tour guide was excellent, attentive and had a lot of knowledge on Turkish food and history. Me and my partner happened to be the only 2 on this tour and our tour guide still spent a full 4 hours (and bit more). I tasted food I would have never tried and enjoyed immensely. Would recommend this tour to anyone!

Food tour with the best!

Let me start by saying that Erol, our guide was AMAZING. He spent 4.5 hours with us showing us EVERYTHING that Istanbul has to offer in terms of food. We walked and ate and ate and walked and learned so much along the way. He is very personable and showed us everything we needed to know about the local food in Turkey, as well as the hidden gems that we wouldn't have even known existed in this amazing city. What a fantastic food tour. HIGHLY recommend.

Walking culinary tour

Our guide met us promptly at the identified location and immediately made us feel at home. He provided insight into the food and the eating and shopping habits of the Turkish people which really helped us to better understand the culture. He would consistently fill in gaps on the food, the region or the history of both Istanbul and Turkey and the culture influencing the food. It was a great introduction and we felt like we were having dinner with an old family friend.

Family bonding

We were on a holiday as a family and this trip with our guide Erol was great fun and a healthy way to bond over some delicious hideout restaurant where the food was yummy for a cold winter evening. Thank you Erol for giving us ur time and sharing a out of the box experience.. we went back to the “Passage” area again 🙏🏼🙏🏼

My tour guide was amazingly...

My tour guide was amazingly informative and very nice. He added in a lot of historical references and made the tour very enjoyable. All the places he took us to were very good. The only very minor change i would recommend is to maybe add in some kebab or meat dishes to the food portion as Turkey is known for that. Other than that, great experience and would definitely recommend!
