After 7 days in Istanbul it was the highlight of our trip. We loved the hip and trendy Asian side of Istanbul and our guide was excellent as was the food. Bring your appetite.

Great way to see the city and get specific details about Turkish cuisine. With the smaller group sizes you can meet new people, navigate the city, and feel like a local.

Would echo everything the hundreds of other five-star reviews say. PLUS, I'll add that we felt 100% safe going on this tour in the midst of the pandemic, as everyone follows precautions, wears masks, etc. Ibrahim truly goes above and beyond on all fronts, making this experience about a lot more than just tasting amazing local food. Highly recommend.

This was one of the best food tours we’ve been on. Our guide was not only knowledgeable but also fun and had a good energy about him. We made 10 stops and definitely eaten and experienced foods we would not have tasted or knew about.

Highly recommend, definitely worth every penny!
