This was a fabulous tour, so much food enjoyed! We started on the European side and ended on the Asian side. Fewer people on the Asian side, but the food and local markets were just as good. Come with an empty stomach because within 20 mins of starting this tour you are greeted with a table of food to share. Best way to sample the local cuisine on a budget, and shared with folks from all over the world. One of the best food tours!

This was a fun and delectable tour. Plenty of food so pace yourself. Our guide Aiesha was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She introduced us to a variety of flavors. We started at the
Spice market and had a taste of different dishes for breakfast. Then it was off to the Asian side via ferry. From there it was non stop sampling of drinks and food. Everything was delicious. We finished it off with ice cream and baklava. Wonderful!
