Please note: the itinerary is subject to change, based on the locations availability and weather. Our tour is different from all the food tours you may have done around the world. Our aim in to make the experience as authentic as possible, so you eat like a native Turk. In Istanbul, it's not uncommon to eat on the run, but we are fortunate to be able to sit and enjoy most of what you will sample on the tour. Your professional guide will share with you a wealth of information, not only about the food you will enjoy, but also about each venue and the secret history of this iconic Istanbul neighborhood.
Karakoy is known as the neighbourhood of beautiful views and night foods. It is located by the entrance of the Golden Horn and surrounds the iconic Galata Tower. Throughout history, Karakoy has always been a major port and trade centre of Istanbul. Today, Karakoy is known for its street eats and nightlife. In the secret back roads of Karakoy you can find special items not offered in other parts of the city, but only if you know where to go!
