Tour Description

Let us share with you our daily lives and tastes while walking through the heart of modern and old Istanbul. This is an interactive tour where you will live Istanbul by asking questions, sampling delicious food items and by being one of the crowd. We will begin our tour in iconic Taksim Square and head down the pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi/Street, home to many of the foreign embassies originally, now consulates. Formerly Pera, this area is now known as Beyoğlu. We will have a peek at the most popular (not necessarily the fanciest) restaurants to understand Turkish cuisine. We will stroll through the Çiçek Pasajı/flower arcade and adjoining small fish market, feasting our eyes on the displays of fresh produce as we go, and trying some of the more unusual delicacies. We will also sit down to enjoy a Turkish coffee in a tiny hole-in-the-wall place made by a master coffee-maker! Our walk will take us towards the Galata Tower where we will enjoy a delicious lunch together.

Proud to receive great feedback from our customers!
