Looking for a unique and unusual experience in Istanbul? This may be the tour for you. It is a privilege to visit the home of a local and better understand how the locals live. Oguz picked us up from our hotel and took us to the eastern side of Istanbul. We visited his local market before going to his mother's apartment. We ate like kings and really enjoyed the company of his gregarious brother and sister-in-law too. I would have liked more focus on learning to cook and a copy of the recipes.
