Our family of 3 have just completed an evening Street Food walking tour with Erol our guide. It was a wonderful experience, beginning in Galata with a ride up the funicular into Beyoğlu. Erol was waiting when we arrived about ten minutes early which was a good sign. He then took us on a meandering route in and out of small side streets and alleys, along the İstiklal Caddesi, finally ending up at Taksim Square. Over the course of the evening we were treated to various delicious Turkish foods in a number different small restaurants, interspersed with a wide ranging conversation, not just about food but also about life in Turkey, Ottoman history, and the origins of the food we were sampling.
Erol was generous with his time and knowledge, so much so that when he finally left us, he had to hurry to catch the last train to his home. From our point of view, the evening seemed to pass quickly as the tour was absorbing, the food delicious, and the sights extraordinary. We are familiar with Turkish food, as we occasionally go to Turkish restaurants in our home city, however the tour was still very well worth doing as we got to try wonderful things that we would not normally have available at home, and saw small streets away from the main thoroughfares.
I organised this tour via the internet from the other side of the world. The arrangements were exactly as planned, my queries answered promptly, and everything went perfectly.
I would highly recommend this tour if you have an evening in Istanbul and want to immerse yourself in this wonderful city with a knowledgeable guide. You won’t regret it!
We took the food tour and it was great and informative. We tried all kinds of food and beverages on different places complemented with great stories.
My tour guide was amazingly informative and very nice. He added in a lot of historical references and made the tour very enjoyable. All the places he took us to were very good. The only very minor change i would recommend is to maybe add in some kebab or meat dishes to the food portion as Turkey is known for that. Other than that, great experience and would definitely recommend!
Great food tour. Out of the way spots you’d never find on your own and fabulous food.
