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 around 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 to show up with a hearty appetite and I’ll do the rest.

I will take you to several local eateries and at each place I'll handle everything so that the only thing you need to do is to relax and enjoy the fabulous dishes happen to be on our route!

Luckily for us, we have a huge array of mouth-watering cuisine that’s really worth trying out. To begin the feast we will meet in Sirkeci and start discovering the delicious corners of the Historical Peninsula. We will mostly eat lamb(kebabs) in different forms yet all of them are exceedingly tasty as in the way we Turks love!

After eating in 4-5 different eateries, we will crown our evening with the most mind-blowing sweets of the Anatolian cuisine.

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

Terrific experience with Ahmet’s knowledge of Istanbul and its food and history. We ate some great authentic foods and really enjoyed getting to know Ahmet. He is very personable. I would definitely go again and highly recommend this food tour.

Ahmet was amazing. He knows a ton and he’s really enjoyable to be around! He’s not kidding when he says come starving. I’ve been to Istanbul before, but this was all new to me! It was a really cool experience and I really recommend this tour as a way to learn Istanbul.

This was our favorite thing we did while in Istanbul! Ahmet was an incredible guide- he knew the best places to eat, cultural anecdotes about the dishes or neighborhoods, and was overall enjoyable to be around. Come hungry and leave stuffed 😊

By the end of this tour we were truly stuffed with so much delicious Turkish food we would have never thought or dared to try. Ahmet really looks after you and makes sure you are full and have had enough to drink. He takes you to a wide range of places across the Istanbul centre, with a variety of sweet and savoury foods, so there’s something for everyone! Really recommend this tour.

Book this tour early on during your visit. Ahmet's food tour was just amazing. As other's have mentioned, the experience made you feel like you were walking around the neighborhood with a friend. Ahmet not only introduced us to fantastic food but also ensured to explain the cultural background of each dish. Had I not joined Ahmet's tour, I would have left Turkey without knowing the true greatness of Turkish cuisine. Definitely the best experience I booked via Airbnb. The only regret I have is that I booked this for my last evening in Istanbul. Had I participated in the tour earlier, I could have re-visited all the amazing places during the rest of my stay :( So as I've said, book it for the begining of the trip! You will be fed a LOT so make sure you come hungry. Thanks again Ahmet!

This is not a food tasting experience with a guide. This is a set of several meal courses with a friend. Worth every cent. Ahmet loves the food in his city, and his passion is obvious. Go into this with an appetite. I went in hungry enough to eat a horse (well, a small horse. like, a pony) and I still came away stuffed to the gills with good turkish food. Couldnt swallow another bite to save my life. Well worth it - a must try experience for anyone who wishes to understand the food culture in Istanbul.
