We start our Istanbul food tour in front of the impressive Spice Bazaar. We’ll wander the perimeter of the bazaar and taste pastirma (Turkish dried beef), local cheeses, and Turkish Delight from the shops of the long-established sweet makers.

As we wander on this Istanbul markets tour, our local guide will be purchasing plenty of Istanbul food for the picnic from the shopkeepers. Depending on the season, you may be sampling several different local foods, including fresh nuts, pastirma, halva, olives, traditional Turkish cheeses and simit. You’ll also have the choice of ayran (yoghurt drink) or a local soft drink.

After leaving the market, we’ll take the ferry to Üsküdar and enjoy a stroll along the waterfront, stopping at a local tea spot for view of the Maiden’s Tower and the Bosphorus. Enjoy tea and a Turkish delight and learn about popular foods and traditions in Turkey.
