We were only two couples and had the nicest evening: a little walk with tea and shisha and then head to the family's house to enjoy a meal with them. I was able to ask all the questions I had about their lifestyle and culture and the guide was kind to translate them to the family (they did not speak English).

It was the first time I have done something like that, and I will sure look for similar activities on the next cities I visit!

This was my favorite excursion. Our guide, Beatrice, met us at the designated restaurant right on time and together we walked to the host's home. The host was gracious and welcoming. She took great pride in the preparation and presentation of our dinner, showing us a traditional Turkish meal. We were invited to ask any questions we wanted and Beatrice interpreted and shared so much information with us. We left with our stomachs full and with a greater understanding of life, culture and politics of Turkey. After dinner, we went to a hookah bar and had a fun and interesting experience there. I would highly recommend this excursion!

Tolga was so kind and patient with me. I was feeling a little weak and sick from my flight and I only had a short window of time to see Istanbul, so I was very grateful that he made himself available so early in the morning to accommodate me and my schedule. I was able to take a 2-hour walk with him and enjoy a private tour without worrying about missing my flight. I learned so much about Turkish culture in a very short amount of time, it was the perfect tour. I highly recommend Istanbul Urban Adventures and Tolga for your visit to Istanbul!

our Turkish guide was fantastic and showed us Istanbul in a perfact way, going to several places we afterwards could visit ourselves. We got a fantastic first general view of this magnificent city.
Our guide also told us about the Turkish culture and food , history, and about the islam

The tour I went on (dinner with a local family) was one of the highlights of my trip - Tolga, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us plenty of tips for the next couple of days of our holiday, and the dinner with the family was delicious - and the family themselves very friendly and welcoming. There were a lot of things I'd have had no idea about if not for going on the tour!
