Full description
The guide will meet you at the lobby of your hotel and take you on a private 5-hour food tasting tour. During this tour you will have the chance to eat like a local, in the street, stopping along the way at local markets. There is no pre-arranged itinerary for this tour,
it depends on the season and your group’s preferences. You can expect to taste everything that is considered very typical of Turkish cuisine. Apart from kebabs,  there are also so many vegetable meals that vegetarians will enjoy.

When it comes to sweets, Turkish baklava, kadayif and Turkish delight are just some of the desserts that those with a sweet tooth should not miss.  You will have the chance to meet families whose many generations have been trying to keep culinary traditions and original recipes.
