Tour map

One of the highlights of your next holiday in Turkey will definitely be the food! Allow us to expose you to genuine Turkish cuisine at restaurants and markets found off the beaten path. Expert guides will walk you through this gastronomical experience and answer any questions you have about the many delicacies you are tasting throughout this unique daytour.


This authentic tour will take you to locals eateries and watering holes where you will experience dining in Istanbul just as the locals do. The evening will begin at a traditional simit bakery. Simit is a very common snack in Turkey and is a circular bread roll, baked and covered in grape molasses and sesame seeds. 

This tour will also visit a local kirathanee. These places can be found all over Turkey and are typically filled with heavily moustached Turkish men drinking endless glasses of Turkish tea while playing cards and backgammon. 

Next, you will continue on to a local Ocakbasi which is a traditional self service barbeque restaurant. While sitting by a fire and drinking raki, of course, you will grill your kebabs and enjoy a relaxing and social time. 

The tour will end in a Mayhane, a traditional tavern where you will enjoy various meze options, drink raki, and listen to live Turkish music performed by gypsy musicians. If you are brave, you will also have the opportunity to try iskembe corbasi, or tripe soup, most often eaten after a night filled with raki drinking. Wrap up the night with a Turkish coffee and desert before returning to your accommodation feeling satiated and well acquainted with the famous flavors of Turkey.
