Istanbul's Most Food-tastic Walk

Fatih, Turkey

Experience hosted by Ahmet

2.5 hours, Hosted in English

What you'll do

Would you like to try Turkish food and learn about our cuisine, but can't decide where to start? Then you are invited to spend an evening with me and HAVE AN ABSOLUTE BLAST eating epic Turkish food whilst roaming some of the Peninsula's most charming and historical streets.

During this experience, I guarantee you are going to be 'stuffed like a turkey' eating the best Turkish cuisine and you won't pay for anything extra other than your initial booking cost. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE! All you need to do is show up with a hearty appetite and I’ll do the rest.

We Turks love eating not just to satiate hunger but to gather in large groups and share food, it is an enormous part of our culture of kinship, camaraderie and affection. Luckily for us, we have a huge array of mouth-watering cuisine that’s really worth trying out! The food-walk will take place in a small area of the Eminönü & Sirkeci districts that are full of local eateries.

Walking between destinations will be kept to a minimum because I want to ensure you spend most of the evening learning about and eating great food. I will take you to several local eateries. At each place I'll handle everything so that the only thing you need to do is relax and enjoy the delicious dishes.

So, what are you waiting for? You do not want to leave Istanbul without indulging in this food-tastic experience!

Where you'll be

We will be visiting eatinghouses around the Eminönü&Sirkeci Districts. It's some of the main parts in the Historical Peninsula and the transportation is the easiest.
Our route will be the side streets of these central locations and hidden places mostly away from touristy attractions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 56 reviews.

Don’t wait until your last night in Istanbul to take this tour, because then you won’t have time to return to any of the food places you’ll discover! I’m still dreaming about the desserts we had that night. 😍 Such a great way to get introduced to yummy Turkish street food, get a dose of Turkish history, and taste a few things you’d probably never find on your own. Absolutely recommend!

The tour, the food and more importantly the host have made this a memorable experience. Learning about the local food, its history and connection to the people was delivered thoughtfully by Ahmet at the same making it fun targeting his audience. The attention to detail and the people skills Ahmet showed was outstanding- I decided to book his other tours. Highly recommended!!

Absolutely a must for your trip to Istanbul! Pace yourself on eating because the food is absolutely amazing and Ahmet blew us away with this tour. Cannot recommend highly enough. You’ll find out about all kinds of types of food, their background, and he is considerate with good allergies and making sure you’re trying the best of the best!! Definitely book :)

Ahmet did everything you would want out of a food tour. On time, happy to see us, very knowledgeable, great price, and most of all, took us to some really great spots. We have traveled to a number of countries doing these and Ahmet took us on the best one we've done so far (and the others were great too!). We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a food tour in Istanbul.

This food tour is an absolute must if you visit Istanbul. Ahmet is the perfect guide. He will take you to local spots you will probably not experience on your own, while telling you the wonderful stories behind every food you try. Truly immersive and tasty! Thank you Ahmet for the memorable experience!

Really good experience. We had food that we won’t have tried on our own. It was definitely filling so please go really hungry lol. Ahmet gave us some good shopping tips which we really needed. Thanks a lot for an amazing experience.
