There are no words to describe how happy we were with the tour and our guide Ibrahim - amazing food, great atmosphere and many useful information were provided during our Taste of Two Continents trip. It was our first food tour and definitely not the last! Highly recommended, it's absolutely worth the money!

One of the best tours we’ve ever done for so many reasons : the stops all around the city, the variety of the plates and bites, and mostly because of Our delightful guide Aise, who was able to answer all of our questions while being super fun and friendly all the way. Would definitely do it again !
Mehmet was a superb guide!

Mehmet knows Istanbul, from the local food shop owners to the rich history to the logistics of the city. The food tour was AMAZING. Also, you will eat A LOT. You also get a great perspective of the locations of the European and Asian sides of the city.
Incredible from every aspect!
