Our guide Cetin was outstanding. He took us to so many places we never would have found on our own. We tried an endless variety of local foods that we would never have known to order by ourselves and left very full. It was also a great way to venture out and discover the Asian side of Istanbul. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Hikmet was very friendly and told us a lot about the food and the history of Turkey. With a total of four stopovers, there were several typical dishes. On the way was also stopped at a fishmonger and a butcher. Satisfied, we were then able to start the journey home.

It has always been our belief that tasting the local street food is as important as visiting historical monuments if one needs to understand the culture of a place. Thus, we booked this tour hoping to get a glimpse of the wonderful Turkish cuisine that we had heard so much about before. Çetin saw to it that we were given the royal treatment. His insights into the Turkish cuisine, it's history and influences from other neighbouring cuisines were fascinating. We were planning before to do such a tour on our own, but knowing what to order is one thing and knowing where to order it from is a completely different prospect. Çetin took us to some of the best local street food vendors and restaurants in the Kadiköy area and made us sample some of the most scrumptious foods one can imagine. Walking through the streets of Kadiköy was a literal assault on the senses with a multitude of sights, sounds and smell wafting out from all corners and Çetin guided us through each and everyone of them.
