Istanbul Food Tour

At the scheduled time, we'll meet at Hobyar Hamidiye Street to start this food tour of Istanbul. Are you ready for a taste of Turkish cuisine? During the tour, we'll visit different cafes, restaurants, and street food stalls for a total of ten tastings.

Accompanied by the guide, we'll stroll through the port district of Eminönü, located in the European part of the city. We'll approach its spice market, which is more than 450 years old, and visit a traditional tea house for the first tasting of the day.

After admiring the facade of the New Mosque, we'll board a ferry and sail across the Bosphorus to get to the Asian side of Istanbul. The boat ride will take approximately 45 minutes.

The tour will take us to Kadıköy, a residential district little known to tourists. We'll get to know the district and taste different delicacies of the typical cuisine of the Anatolian peninsula.

We'll first head to Kadıköy market, where some of the oldest stores and restaurants in the district are located. As we stroll around, we'll learn all about Turkish food. The mouthwatering smell from the different stalls will overtake our senses.

During the food tour of Istanbul, we'll be able to enjoy dolmas, which are stuffed vegetables, kokoreç, a lamb-based dish, and many other delicious dishes. All accompanied by drinks of course! Naturally, we'll add a sweet touch with a delicious goat's milk dondurma, one of the most popular ice creams in the city.

After six to seven and a half hours of sightseeing, depending on the pace of the group, we'll end the tour at the Kadıköy ferry terminal. You'll have your return ticket to the European part of Istanbul already arranged.
