Welcome to heaven for the hidden gourmet inside you!
This is my new tour (with all the experiences and fun I put together from my various tours. On all of my tours I include a bit of this tour, but this time, this is full dedication:
Your introduction to finer or finest! Turkish , Ottoman, Middle Eastern, Arabic bites at hidden corners of Istanbul, and yes, we will go that extra mile for that unforgettable bite to be treasured for ever. (One of) The best Baklava experience and Kebab of your life is the oath of the tour. And great veggie specials are also there.

Strange or common, but the best of its kind 20 - 30 options to try ( all are included ) .
Specialy Kebabs, baklavas , veggies, secrets of Turkish and middle eastern cuisine revealed. Oppurtunity for a vegetarian as well.

As we walk through the old town we get a chance to digest the previous bites for the follow ups and enjoy Istanbul and its sites.
