What to expect
  • Start your evening tour with pickup from your central Istanbul hotel, and head into the heart of historical Sultanahmet. As you walk, hear from your guide about Istanbul’s history and how it has left its legacy on the city’s cuisine. Wander through the bustling streets, passing some of Sultanahmet’s landmarks, and get insider tips from your guide on great places to eat and must-try delicacies. While you talk and absorb the evening ambiance, wend your way to Taksim Square and enjoy four food stops to sample some classic local dishes. Samples may vary, but expect to taste favorites such as a mouth-watering lamb shish kebab, a juicy meatball, and a fried mussel kebab; a string of lightly battered mussels threaded onto a skewer. As dusk falls, enjoy the magical sunset views over Sultanahmet’s minarets from the Galata Bridge, and take in the sight of the Galata Tower on the opposite bank. Drink in the buzz around the food vendors and restaurants, and make a final stop to taste some classic Turkish baklava. Sink your teeth into these super-sweet honey-and-nut filo parcels that were much loved by the Ottoman sultans. Finish with a drop-off at your hotel.

Different view of the city.
A long walk around parts of the city we would not have had chance to see and food stops at places we would not have tried in our own. Ayhan was very knowledgeable about the city and gave us a great insight which made for an intetesting tour with traditional Turkish food. Be warned though, it is about a 10km walk.

Highly recommend
There has obviously been a lot of work put into making this tour fantastic. Ayhan has found some of the best foods in the city and presents them with a pleasant walk between each. We walked through some beautiful streets which we never would’ve found without this tour. I’d highly recommend to join this tour if you have an evening free in Istanbul.

Evening Tour on Istanbul
We performed an evening tour with Ayhan on April 2019. We with him discovered some very characteristics area in Istanbul. We ate some Turkish foods as Meatballs, Turkish Pizza and baklava!
The tour was very nice and also very helpful to better understand the Turkish culture.
I suggest it to have a complete view of Istanbul with a very available and friendly guide!

Wonderful tour with Ayhan
Apr 2019 • Solo
I enjoyed a wonderful evening walking around Istanbul and tasting various dishes. Ayhan was an exceptional and knowledgeable guide who took the time to show me various sights. He explained the different foods I tasted and was patient and kind. I highly recommend this tour for those who have a few hours to spare in the evening!!

Around the City's Best Sights and Eats
This is the best way to get to know the city - through its sights and eats. Ayhan was the best in delivering all that. He contacted me as soon as i confirmed my booking and gave me some tips on how to be a smart first timer in Istanbul. The tour proper was an eye opener. Istanbul - at a glance - seemed not to be a walking city but Ayhan turned that around. He took me to the must-see places for both locals and tourists alike and all on foot. I tasted the most delicious dishes without feeling the guilt. One should be apart from a foodie, an active wanderer when joining this tour.

Awesome Tour!!
Ayhan and his tour were amazing! We joined him on our first day here and it was a perfect intro to Istanbul. As we ate our way around the city Ayhan showed us all the different neighborhoods and gave us many recommendations for our stay. The food was awesome and he really gave us a great perspective on life in Istanbul. Highly recommended tour, Ayhan is a great guy and an awesome guide!

Fantastic tour, food, and tourguide
Ayhan was SO WONDERFUL. He picked us up from the hotel, and we walked all around the city with some breaks to eat. We stopped by 4 different food places. I was expecting a few bites at each place but we got quite a lot of food, we were very full by the end. He showed us major sites as well as corners in the city we wouldn't have found otherwise. He answered every question I could think of, and was so knowledgeable and kind. The group was small so it was very personal. He helped me book another great tour during my stay so we could maximize what we do here. I HIGHLY recommend this tour with Ayhan, he really made our trip.

Great walk...Great food....and Ayhan was Great!
Jul 2018 • Friends
Ayhan was great! He made us feel very welcome in Istanbul! He went above and beyond just a tour guide. When we finished the tour we felt like we had a new friend. Plus, he helped line up tours for the next day so we would not repeat the same tours. Thanks Ayhan! Hope to see you soon.
