About Istanbul on Food - Culinary Tours
Let us take you on a unique Istanbul Food Tour inside our favorite neighborhoods and culinary backstreets of Istanbul. Each food tour includes food tastings from the best specialty food shops and local restaurants, as well as an off-the-beaten-path glimpse of life in Istanbul: the history, culture and architecture of our lively home. Of course, the food takes centre stage, and you definitely won’t leave hungry – but, this is so much more than just a food tour.

This tour vastly exceeded our expectations! The food at each stop was excellent, and our guide, Ali, did an excellent job of telling us about each dish and how it was prepared. He included details of the origins of each dish as well. But beyond that, Ali gave us a lot of additional information on Istanbul, Turkey, the culture, and the country’s history in general. By the end of the day, both our bellies and our hearts were full! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Istanbul. If you only have time for one thing, make it this!

This food tour is an absolute must! We did this tour on our first day in Istanbul as this was our first time visiting the city. It was an incredible day! Aysha was our tour guide and she was the absolute best. So enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the city, food and just willing to give us the best recos and answer all of our questions. The food is incredible at every single stop and you will get to try dishes and restaurants that otherwise would be hard to find on your own.

I have taken a lot of food tours all over the world and this is by far one the best. Ayesha was one of the most knowledgeable and thoughtful guides I have ever had. We visited so many places including the Spice Bazaar that I could not keep track of. The amount of good was a lot and I wish I had not had the small breakfast that I did, Come hungry! Ayesha was always quick to answer any questions or even alter the menu if needed. we had one vegetarian in the group and she made sure that he had options at most of the places we visited. Even at the end of the tour, we had options to take the Ferry back towards the old town, stay on the Asian side, or in my case, take a completely different Ferry back to a dock closer to my hotel.
