The tour was organized by a friendly and communicative guide who is from Istanbul and shared a lot of new information about this beautiful city with me. It was a good combination of sightseeing and food tasting with both the sights and the dishes being unknown to the normal tourist. Did you know, for example, that part of Istanbul seems quite Roman and that there is a delicious combination of hot and cold offered by only one restaurant? An enjoyable and informative tour - highly recommended!
