Since my childhood I love to ride and sample foods from various stalls in the streets of Istanbul. 3 years ago I founded a food and urban life blog of Istanbul, and now I would like to share my discoveries with you!

Beyoğlu-Eminonu street food line:
We'll travel from Beyoğlu to Karaköy, then Hodjapasha to heart of Eminonu, exploring only the most authentic foods not made for tourists. In between bites, we'll stop at some of my best kept secret shops for clothing,kitchen equipments, spice markets and other authentic wares while we work up our appetites. Recommendations on restaurants, markets, and history will be provided. There will be bits of history and culture. Also along the way we will also be checking out some of the beautiful murals and street art that is often over looked!

Tour titles are:
Breakfast and Turkish coffee and street food experience in Beyoğlu.
Street foods experiences and spice bazaar tour in Eminönü.
Tea and dessert in Karaköy.

Food is included in the price of the tour!

Our tour guide in Istanbul was Umut, who did an amazing job showing us some of the highlights of Turkish cuisine. The tour was great; much better than we had expected. We went to at least five different locations, all of which served some killer meals. Not only was Umut friendly and engaging, he was extremely knowledgeable not just about the foods we were trying, but how it compared to other regional foods. Throughout the tour, he went to great lengths to ensure we were enjoying our experience and was extremely flexible, taking into account our expectations and preferences. Moreover, he was an equally competent guide of culture, history, art, etc. While walking between food locations, he would point out important landmarks and explain their significance. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to any traveler looking for a more intimate view of Turkish cuisine and culture. Thanks again, Umut!

We had an amazing time with this tour! Umut, Okan's friend, was our guide and it could not have been better. He was kind, intelligent, generous, we had plenty of super interesting conversations. The food was fantastic and all the spots carefully chosen. We went back to this little kebab place on our last day in Istanbul and decided it really was the best food we had had! Food is included in the tour price so a good bargain and above all, a wonderful experience. We warmly recommend, thanks again Umut for this amazing day!
