Istanbul Evening Sightseeing and Food Tasting Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Your epicurean experience begins with convenient pickup at your Istanbul accommodation. From there, you’ll travel to Taksim Square — a modern space, dominated by the 1928 Monument of the Rebuplic, that buzzes with crowds heading to its high-end hotels, bars, and restaurants.

    Begin your culinary journey by learning to make and sampling cig kofte, (a combination of bulgar, mint, parsley, spices, and raw beef). Treat your taste buds to icli kofte, in which meat, spices, and nuts are enclosed in pastry and either steamed or fried, and then stop at a kebab house to devour a slow-roasted lamb kebab. 

    Sate your sweet tooth with a crunchy Turkish baklava at a local dessert shop before concluding your tour with drop-off at your Istanbul accommodation.

    I don't believe anyone else does it other than Ayhan. Maybe you can contact him to know if this option is available. But in general I have seen female tour guides in Istanbul though it varies from agency to agency.
