Why Book Your Istanbul Tour With Us?
“Can boğazdan gelir.” (The soul comes from the throat.)
— Turkish proverb
Eating the food is as essential when visiting Istanbul and Turkey, as is experiencing the country’s long cultural history. Food – how we make it, how we eat it, and how we share it – is the embodiment of where Turks come from, and who we are today. The food offered in Turkey is perhaps even more diverse and with a more complex history, than the cultural monuments of the country.
If you are planning a visit to the magnificent Hagia Sofia? You must also eat çiğ köfte.
Are you visiting the imperial Topkapı Palace? Then you should eat karnıyarık, too.
Will you venture inside the splendid Blue Mosque? Make sure you don’t miss out on delicious künefe.
Because, just as the famous historical monuments are some of the highlights of Istanbul, so, too, is the country’s sumptuous cuisine. The famous dishes of our country should also be experienced and enjoyed to understand Turkey. Tasting more than just kebabs and baklava is essential. On our Istanbul Tours we will help you to discover the unexpected local restaurants and secret edible treasures of Turkey.
