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!

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.

Excellent tour, you get a great sense of the food culture in Istanbul. Plus, Ahmet is a caring host and he’ll introduce you to dishes you most likely haven’t tried even if you’ve been in the city for a few days!

The food was so good I feel like having it all again already! Ahmet is a great host and gave us a lot of background on the dishes we had. He also made recommendations for places that we can visit later on.

Our group really enjoyed Ahmet's food tour. Overall, the restaurants/dishes were excellent. In particular, the soup at the main stop stood out. Outside of the food, Ahmet's background in international relations and knowledge of Turkish history made the experience even better.

Here is yet another glowing review for Ahmet and the incredible experience he provides! My husband and I are traveling with our two teenage daughters and we had the best time with Ahmet. All of us agreed it was a highlight of our time here. He is warm, engaging, knowledgeable, attentive, and funny. He knew all of our names within moments and took the time to get to know us while he showed us around some local haunts in this beautiful city. The tour is well-organized in terms of location and the food you get to try. All of the places we went to were full of locals enjoying the terrific dishes. Not only that, but he sent out a list of the foods we ate and locations so that we can find them again when we are back in Istanbul - which I'm sure we will be! Walking through the streets with Ahmet felt like we were with a friend who was showing us around, which is something we will always remember. Thank you to Ahmet for a super fun evening and we highly recommend this experience to all!

You guys have to book Ahmet! He is amazing! Honestly this was our favorite thing we did in Istanbul! he was so informative, and knew so much about the history of everything there. The food was so delicious and we left feeling stuffed like a turkey as Ahmet promised😅

When you get to Istanbul the hustle and bustle can be a bit overwhelming, but with Ahmet you are in a safe pair of hands. He takes care of everything while you just get to sit back, enjoy the stories, and meet the amazing people who run the various restaurants and stalls you visit. We had a blast and would recommend this tour to our mates. Thanks Ahmet!
