What a fantastic experience. erol showed us places and food we would never have tried as we would
not have known about it. A tour every tourist should do
We had an excellent evening with our guide, Erol. We visited a number of restaurants, bars and shops in Beyoglu, and the tour included a lot of historical information. The food we tasted was excellent, and ranged from mezze platters to confectionery. The tour felt very well thought out, our guide was a local expert, and we felt we gained a great insight into the food culture of Istanbul.
My tour guide was excellent, attentive and had a lot of knowledge on Turkish food and history. Me and my partner happened to be the only 2 on this tour and our tour guide still spent a full 4 hours (and bit more). I tasted food I would have never tried and enjoyed immensely. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
Vi havde en dejlig aften med god mad og stemninger. Guiden var god til at fortælle om historie, kultur
og traditioner fra Tyrkiet. Vi nød en masse skønne retter og de 4 timer fløj afsted. Kan helt klart
anbefales – vi gør det gerne igen 😊
This was an excellent tour from the beginning to the end. Meeting up with our guide, Erol, was straightforward and as my 21 year old son and I were his only guests, we had his undivided attention throughout. The tour itself was a gentle stroll through some of the backstreets off Independence Avenue stopping off at Cafes, Taverns and street food stalls to sample a cross-section of delicious foods to include breads, Meze, meats, stuffed mussels and desserts. It was a fascinating insight made better by the detailed and informative comment provided by Erol. I cannot praise Erol highly enough; he was a first class guide providing thoughtful information on the history, cultural significance and relevance not only of the food but of the locations where it was served. This was a wonderful introduction to Turkish food and I highly recommend the tour – bring an appetite, you will need it!
