We were very satisfied with our guide. He gave us an unforgettable day in Istanbul. Although we were clearly above the booked time we did not have to pay anything on it. We would definitely recommend the Street Food Tour.

I can only recommend this tour guide to everyone. Every tourist in Istanbul should take part in a culinary tour.

NOTE: The tourist should only have a small breakfast in his accommodation if possible, as a lot is tried during the culinary tour. I think the tour guide is very nice and open for all questions at any time. The tour guide responds to the wishes and needs of the tourist.

Even if you don't like every meal that the locals in Istanbul like to eat, you should try every delicacy. Because the mentalities in Turkey are different from those in Germany. In addition, a lot of food is cooked by the Turkish citizens themselves, so that the Germans can cut themselves a slice of it. Because there is hardly or not at all Fast Food in Turkey in such a situation as in Germany.

The tour guide also knows some places (restaurants) where one should definitely stop for a bite to eat, where the food tastes very good. If a tourist finds lunch too much, the food should not be disposed of by the restaurant, but the meat should be packed.

In Istanbul there are many street cats as well as free running dogs. It's a trademark for Istanbul. Free-running dogs are very welcome if the rest of the meat is offered to them by the restaurant. Here I must say that the street cats / free running dogs are more sociable than in Germany. In Germany, these pets seem rather spoiled and partly aggressive. In Istanbul you don't have to be afraid of such animals.

Delicacies can be taken both in the summer months and predominantly in the winter months.

Your experience

Highlights

  • Discover the culinary delights of Istanbul accompanied by your private tour guide

Description

Would you like to get to know the typical cuisine of the country during your visit to Turkey? Are you open to new culinary delights? Then this tour is just right for you

Unless otherwise agreed, you will be picked up by your tour guide at the hotel. Public transport will take you to the first stop of your culinary discovery tour: Taksim Square. Here the first speciality is already waiting for you: the Islak Hamburger

Continue to Istiklal Street. The busy pedestrian zone with its nostalgic Tünel cog railway is the lively European centre of Istanbul. Make a short stop at a Turkish café in the Yeşilçam district. Yeşilçam is considered the Turkish Hollywood of Istanbul, because numerous films have been produced here

With the Tünel and the ferry you then go to the Asian side of Istanbul to Kadikö. Off the beaten tourist track, you will visit typical vegetable, fish and fruit markets. Here you have the opportunity to have your fish freshly prepared by the fishmongers

The journey continues to Bahariye, where the Sürreya Opera House is located. From the Altıyol place you take the subway back. The new underground railway tunnel "Maramay" connects the European and Asian parts of the country

Where and what does the Istanbul native eat? Our tour will answer these questions. Depending on the season, you will be able to taste a wide variety of culinary specialities on this discovery tour. There are many street food vendors in Istanbul: Whether Nohutlu Pilav (rice with chickpeas), Simit (sesame curl), Midye Tava (fried mussels), Kebab, Modye Dolmal (mussels filled with rice, pine nuts and raisins), Kokoreç - there is something for every taste

Typical for the Turkish cuisine are mezes (starters), which are often shared and served with alcoholic drinks. Turkish cuisine also offers a wide variety of vegetables, soups, meat dishes, salads and delicious desserts. Popular spices in Turkish cuisine are coriander, cumin, sumac, pepper, fenugreek, oregano and garlic
