Istanbul is one of the most unique cities in the world, where daily life mix with ancient history give to the city a natural beauty. Their people are also unique, making up a cultural mosaic of different national, ethnic, cultural and religious origins. This rich international culture is alive in the cuisines, food and eating styles of Istanbul. Arrive with an empty stomach and an open mind to dive into the sights, scents and tastes of both sides of Istanbul, to the places that locals cherish in a cultural and culinary trip with food and wine tastings from best local chosen restaurants to local homes. These culinary experiences help you understand better the country. Few travellers, unfortunately, have the opportunity to have real tastes and tours of these places. All this guided from one of the most reputated turquish tour guide.
This trip mixes both parts to understand a culture : The touristic, with a good balance between present and past culture & history and The Kitchen, that helps so much to understand and grab a place to our memories; including between visit and visit, food tastings from the best and hidden local food shops, ethnic eateries, and local small and casual restaurants, as well as an “off-the-beaten-path” glimpse of life in Istanbul and Bursa, so escaping from the tourist crowds.
