A very nice tour! Our guide, Leyla, was knowledgeable on the history of Istanbul which complement really well with the walking tour that we had. Even though we have not managed to visit Topkapi Palace and Basilica Cistern as they were under construction, the time we had on the tour was well spent mostly because Leyla compensated it with fun facts and anecdotes about Istanbul.

Our guide Salih was great- escorted the group from the European side to the Asian side of Istanbul. I loved our stops in the Asian market. The guide orders for you (at upwards of 10 stops), so it's a great/easy way to broaden your culinary horizons. I felt like I saw a lot on foot (and on the ferry). Ended the tour at a shisha/hookah lounge. Would recommend to any adventurous eaters disposed to walking!

Our guide Salih led five of us on a culinary adventure! Starting on the European side, we took the ferry across to the Asian continent where we sampled pastrami, pickled vegetables, several types of olives, cheeses, stuffed mussels, kebab’s, and much more. One couple was vegetarian and Salih went out of his way to organize substitutes for any meat dishes. It was a lovely evening and the markets and restaurants were lively and fun! After eating (more than) our fill, we headed back to Europe, enjoying the city skyline by night. There we indulged in baklava and Turkish ice cream, and afterwards experienced the Turkish tradition of local water pipes and tea. An unforgettable night!
