Meeting Spot - Morning Tour
We will meet at Kadikoy metro station exit 4, right outside the station. There is a white ferry building on the left and on the right there is a big area with a huge Turkish flag and a statue with stairs. There are several exit gates at Kadikoy metro station, if arriving by metro follow the signs for Exit 4. As you are exiting the station you will see our meeting spot to your right. Our guide will be standing at the stairs of the statue to greet you holding a Secret Food Tours orange umbrella, so we are easy to spot!
For the people who will come by ferry, after exiting Eminonu or Karakoy ferry station you just need to walk 150 meters to the right along the seaside and you will see the stairs of the statue. If you're coming with the Besiktas ferry the statue and meeting point will be on your left after exiting the ferry. Behind the Turkish flag and statue there is a brown Haldun Taner Theatre Building which has a shelter. If it is a rainy day we will meet at the closest corner of theatre building under shelter.
Meeting Spot - Evening Tour
Your guide will be waiting for you with his orange umbrealla at the exit of Tunel which is one of the oldest metro systems in the world. It runs between Karakoy and Beyoglu. We will be meeting at the Karakoy exit.
The easiest way to get there from Sultanahmet or Eminonu is, after crossing over Galata Bridge in the direction of Galata Tower, to find the Karakoy tram station and take the underground walkway to cross the the road, look for the exit called Tunel, alternatively you can take the tram and get off at the station called Karakoy.
