We choose the taste of two continents tour! It was wonderful! 7 hours, 11 stops, super guide Latif!! What an experience, it's an amazing way to explore the turkish food!! Delicious and fun! We had an top day! Keep up the good job!
I went to Istanbul for a weekend trip for my wife's birthday. I had done a lot of research on what to do and which excursions to book. I'm so glad I booked this!! this was one of the cheaper food tours and my wife absolutely loved it.Latif our host was brilliant. He was very funny and his english was first class. The places he took us to were incredible and I'm glad to have someone else order for me!! My wife and I can't stop talking about the food we had it really was incredible and he was right the Buffalo cream with honey really has changed my life. Istanbul is essentially full of hotels and restaurants so choosing the right ones is very difficult. I was left quite disappointed when my wife and I ventured out on our own to find somewhere to eat, the places we went didn't come close to the places Latif took us.It's a shame that the media are putting people off from going to Istanbul as it's an incredible city. You have people from all walks and faiths just getting on with life trying to making a living. If you go you must try this trip, you won't regret it.
We took our tour with Korhan. He did a fantastic job! In addition to the food, we learned a great deal about the history and culture of this amazing city.
I can't recommend this tour enough! It was a great way to get to know Turkish food and customs. We also ate so many dishes that we may not have discovered on our own. Korhan was our guide and he was fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble for him and you can tell he is genuinely passionate about Turkish food and culture. Also,I have to say thank you to the back office staff for their quick and detailed responses. This is a must do experience if you're visiting Istanbul!
I am a pretty adventurous foodie with a large appetite and this was definitely worth it! The tour was well organized, not too fast not too slow, excellent pace for all the stops. The explanations were perfect, the guide awesome and the food so amazing. I was definitely full at the end and loved everything we tried. It was hard to pick a favourite though. If you are in in trying lots if different food in a neighborhood of Istanbul you might not normally see, I definitely recommend it!
