    We had a terrific time! Our guide Mehmet was great, and the tour was very well organized. There are not too many people per group, which I think is good. However, I definitely recommend not eating breakfast before!

    The cruise was a blast! Although everyone was seated so close together in 1 long table without much space to eat comfortably, the entertainment compensated for that. Mezze and bread basket was already cold as it is already served on the table by the time people arrived. Would be good if they kept everything fresh. Overall, it was a good experience.

    Very lovely dinner cruise. Good food and lovely entertainment. It’s a bit late though and ends late and I wish the photographers were open about how much they would charge for taking photos of us

    The Bosporus is gorgeous and stuffed with history - 5,000 years of history. I highly recommend this excursion not only for the history lesson but also for the excellent service and good food.

    The day started a bit shakey when we met our guide at our hotel (Sura Hagia). We didn't climb into the van, instead he made us walk nearly a mile. From there we picked up one more guest than headed to the boat, however the van stopped half-way there to fill up on gas. Why would you stop to get gas when you have a van full of guests? Why not gas up before pickup?

    That was the only negative, the rest of the day was wonderful. For clarity sake, you do not actually cruise into the Black Sea, the boat doesn't even pass the third bridge. Still, this was my highlight of Istanbul.

    We had an amazing time with the crew of Istanbul Party pub crawl Team. First time in Istanbul and we (me & my husband) booked this tour. Everything was beyond our expectations. The crew and the team’s members were lovely, fun , energetic and with great energy. From start to the end, it was full of spunk and vibes. We had a great night life experience here with the team. Much recommend for all the tourists, who want to experience the night life of Istanbul, must book this crew.

    Thanks & Cheers !

    I liked the organisation before coming on board. On arrival I was quickly brought to my seat but then the waiter had difficulty with checking if I was a customer with or without alcohol. A simple hot meal was served. The shows were good even though I seated far away and asked not to approach. I did take many nice pictures outside though.

    What an amazing half day we had as an introduction to Istanbul! For starters, Emre was more than just our tour guide for the day. He reached out to us well before our trip began to help with trip planning, which meant when we met up for our tour it was more like meeting up with an old friend than a stranger. Emre is warm, funny, and highly attentive to what it is we wanted out of our tour. We felt like insiders, getting off the beaten path and sampling some of the most delicious food we’ve ever had. Some we even returned to on our own, mostly to satisfy a craving for lamb foot and head soup we developed a love for. Absolutely recommend this tour for any foodie!

    Having been so fortunate as to have visited Istanbul many times over the years, we decided we wanted to experience something new this time. As we do not know the Asian side of the city so well as the European part, we booked the food sampling walking tour in Kadiköy. What a good choice it was!!!

    Our guide, Emre, could not have been better. A superb host that presented the food and the neighbourhood in a very interesting and personal way. His immense knowledge and his very pleasant nature made the three hour tour the highlight of our stay in that wonderful city this time. He took us to places we would never have found on our own. We had the impression that whenever we turned around a street corner a new secret was waiting for us.
    The food tasting was superb and very varied. Here Emre also showed that he was good at improvising. Because of an allergy I could not sample the stuffed mussels that my wife loved. But then he took me to a special shop to give me my favourite Turkish snack; Subörek- (Filo pastry with feta cheese and parsley)

    For more than 40 years I have avoided the Turkish dish Kokorec. It is made of small and large intestines and sweetbreads from lamb wrapped onto iron skewers to be grilled over charcoal. Very popular street food! With Emre as my culinary guide I braved my first sample of the specialty. It tasted delicious!!!!

    Everywhere we went we met nice shop and restaurant owners. We ended up at a historical confectionery shop, which was so nice that it would have been worth a tour on its own. We felt that we during this tour had got a new Turkish friends. It was such a pleasant and interesting tour that we have already decided to repeat it on our next visit, but this time we will do it on the European side. Thank you Emre!!!!!

    The tour was well organized and conducted professionally by Diana. She is a wonderful guide, who is very patient with the people on the tour and has good knowledge of the area’s history.
    The driver on this tour, handle the vehicle safely throughout the day. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we are leaving Istanbul with great memories.

    Our guide (and owner of the company) Furkan was waiting outside of our AirBnb right on time and promptly took us to a delicious Turkish breakfast. It was the beginning of an amazing day of eating great food and learning about Istanbul and Turkey. Furkan is a great guide and even went out of his way to buy gluten free bread for my wife who has an allergy so she could have bread for all the dishes we tried. We went back to a few of the locations in the following days and the employees remembered us and were extremely welcoming. You can tell Furkan has a great relationship with all of these restaurants. We even ran into his wife giving a tour on one of the return visits. You can’t go wrong with this food tour, and I’m sure the same applies for any other tours this company operates!

    We really enjoyed our tour with Erol who was friendly, professional and helpful. He was a font of knowledge and showed us a side of Istanbul we would not have known existed. To see the city from the eyes and tastes of a local , this tour is a must!
