Culinary Walks Istanbul – Istanbul Food Tour Culinary Backstreets
Join us to sample a very special food culture in Istanbul: What’s in a kebab? How do you make Turkish Coffee? Where’s the best baklava made? Compare mezes and tapas? Don’t like offals?
Istanbul has everything that you can ask from a food destination and you’ll have the chance to experience this in our Culinary walks Istanbul tour.
We know old city Istanbul by heart and we offer our culinary walks in areas where you won’t see any other tourists.
We visit the old neighborhoods and remember the authentic taste of food, as it was when we were growing up in Istanbul.
Culinary Walks Istanbul tour takes you to local restaurants open for lunch where only the shopkeepers frequent. We join very old men having tea in a secluded mosque garden.
It is a delight walking around just observing people’s everyday heyday as we eat our way through it and enjoy a very special food culture.
These areas are busy with people doing their shopping, men doing their trade (yes, it is a men’s world), money changing hands (The oldest black market is somewhere around here, well kept secret)
There will be lots of samplings on the go as we walk the backstreets of old city Istanbul.
Once we are finished with the old city, we take you across on a commuter ferry to Kadıkoy and see a very special local market brimming with fish, vegetables…. everything you can ask!
As we eat, we also walk into some mosques or any other historical building you feel like having a look at. You can choose to have an exclusive access to a private tour or join a small group. There will be a max of 8 people so the experience of culinary walks in Istanbul is always intimate.
