What people are saying about Istanbul

An authentic experience that is well worth the money and time

Our guide Nadir was great; friendly and professional. We really like him. Our host is absolutely lovely. She made a simple but large and delicious meal that we all did our best to polish off. She was so friendly and welcoming and seemed to genuinely enjoy having us there and feeding us. I would suggest that the host could be more part of the meal rather than just serving, although I felt a little awkward chatting in English while she could not understand. That is just a difficulty in this situtation but maybe the guide could translate more? It's not the easiest job but would help! I definitely suggest learning to greet someone in Turkish as it is just good manners and I think it is appreciated if you just try. The tea house was great and the best tea in Turkey thus far. I would have liked to stay for a game. Our fellow guests Rose, Steve and Susan made the it more fun. Thank you. All in all, this was the best money we spent this holiday and a fantastic evening.

Istanbul: Home-Cooked Dinner with a Local Family Reviewed by Elizabeth, 09/25/2015

Delicious fascinating educational and fun!

Salih was an excellent guide - great taste and suggestions, very informative on food, culture, history. Very flexible - we got lost in way to meeting point and he came to find us, helped us find an open shop needed on our way home. And in the middle - such an experience! Loved the walk and ferry, market tastes and history, pickles, mussels, pastrami, cheese - all delicious! And then dinner was perfect - really gave us a sampling of so many wonderful flavors that we wouldn’t have been able to find for ourselves. And we were stuffed! But still managed to find room for baklava and ice cream afterward. Only downside is no liquor license at restaurant. Highly recommended.

Awesome evening with an experienced and knowledgable guide!

From the nerve settling introduction to the last piece of Turkish delight it was truly a night to remember. I was Looking for something out of the ordinary and found it! Local custom and cuisine at the home of our host for the evening provided an immersive experience like none I have ever experienced. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get out of their shell and experience local culture on a one on one basis. Ekrem our guide did a wonderful job and made the evening flow from start to finish! Highly recommended!

Dream tour aka amazing night out in Kadikoy

I can't even explain how much I enjoyed this "tour". Lucky for me I was the only one booked, so it was just me and my amazing guide, Cetin. It was my first night in Istanbul and this tour was the perfect introduction to the food, culture and history of the city. The food I tried was INCREDIBLE and the number of restaurants we visited was extremely generous. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Istanbul. I'll be back to do it again. Thanks again Cetin. This experience felt more like a night out with a friend!

Delicious & fantastic way to view the cit with a great guide

We had a highly enjoyable and delicious tour of the Asian side of Istanbul, with our fantastic guide Cetin (an ex-chef!). The food we sampled was both local and full of flavors, and we really appreciated the range of flavors and tastes we were able to sample. Not only did we learn about the food we did try, but also a bit about other foods in other parts of the city that we should go back to try, and we got a nice list of great restaurants to try. I would definitely return for this again!
