    What to Expect
    Start your evening tour with pickup 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 ambiance, wend 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.

    Finish with a drop-off at your hotel.

    This is the best way to get to know the city - through its sights and eats. Ayhan was the best in delivering all that. He contacted me as soon as i confirmed my booking and gave me some tips on how to be a smart first timer in Istanbul. The tour proper was an eye opener.
