We had the delightful, energetic Ipek guide us through the backstreets and Grand Bazaar on a Saturday morning. Our group of 7 enjoyed every minute of the tour, nibbling and tasting food we would have never have known about. We learnt so much, not just about food, but wedding customs, the history of Istanbul, the merchants and makers, even the circumcision ceremony!
At first I thought it was expensive but in fact we left feeling we'd gained, not just a full stomach but a unique experience. Please note, this tour does have a lot of walking and steep steps, so do the guide a favour and don't book unless you can handle this.
