I had the pleasure of spending the day with Derya who is absolutely amazing - she provided a great tour of local cuisine on both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul and was extremely knowledgable on all things Istanbul as well. She was a pleasure to spend the day with making this the best tour I've done in the 14 countries I've visited - highly recommend doing it if you're in Istanbul!
