If you are interested in indulging your taste buds in new types of food, and want to learn about the traditional culture of Turkey, this is the tour for you.
Our tour guide, Gonca, was extremely knowledgeable about the different foods we were tasting, and very welcoming to our group. She was super helpful, recommending my family her favorite restaurants in Istanbul and favorite Turkish delight store. We started in the European side of Istanbul and tasted delicious Turkish breakfast meals such as water buffalo yogurt with honey (highly recommended). Then, as a group, she led us to the ferry and we headed over to Asia. The walking is not too much at all - I thought it was quite pleasant!
What I loved the best was that Gonca led us to very local eating spots that as a tourist that I probably would not have found on my own. We stopped at many different spots and she delighted us with cultural backgrounds for each of our foods.
I highly recommend this tour to everybody who is open to trying new foods. Even if you don't have the biggest appetite like me, you can nibble little bits here and there and really get to know Turkey! If you have two days in Istanbul, spend one day seeing the sights and the other joining this tour!
