Testimonials

All of the 5 star reviews are spot on. This Istanbul food tour is EXCEPTIONAL. Latif is THE best guide we have had in 25 years of traveling around the world. It was the highlight of our travels in Turkey amidst several weeks of wonderful experiences throughout the country. I will recommend their Istanbul food tours to everyone!

Talk about over-delivering! I really think the tour could have been half as long for the same price and people would be very pleased with it. That said, we loved it as is! If a friend of mine goes to Istanbul I will insist they take this tour. Latif was fantastic. Food was fantastic. We stopped at 12 places and probably tried 40 dishes, no exaggeration! This food tour will probably spoil me for all future food tours.

I would like to thank Latif our food guide for an amazing experience. This was the highlight of my Turkey trip, apart from hot air ballooning in Cappadocia. The range of foods that we had was staggering (at least 15-17 different places), and Latif brought us to authentic places patronized by locals and not tourist traps. As a foodie adventurer, I am glad that we got to try some exotic stuff such as Beef tongue soup and lamb intestines sandwiches. I will definitely do this Istanbul food tours again the next time I am in Turkey.

So glad we picked this Istanbul walking tour, I am still telling people about the food we had, one of the places we stopped (a place that specializes in one dish only) would be one of my all time favorite food experiences. I highly recommend this tour and as usual on a food tour don’t eat too much at the start, there is a lot of food!

This was hands down the best tour I have ever taken in one of the best, friendliest and most unique cities in the world. My wife and I had the most amazing time on the Taste of Two Continents tour with Latif. If you are hesitant about going on the tour because of price or not sure if you want to spend a whole day eating, don’t be. It’s worth every single penny. The tour and cuisine reflect the vibrancy of Istanbul and Korhan’s knowledge of all things Turkey mixed with his own personal stories made for an educational day and terrific tour. I would rank this as a must do in Istanbul.
