Istanbul Food Walks invites you to get off the tourist trail and explore and taste the real Istanbul by booking an amazing Food Walk with us.
Our Food Walks are perfect for the foodie, the adventurer, the photographer or the traveller and are also a great family activity. We recommend you do this Food Walk at the beginning of your time in Istanbul.
We are different from other companies as we represent better value for money, we keep our groups small and intimate so you always feel like you are exploring Istanbul with a generous and knowledgable friend and our experienced guides are passionate about what they do so you can relax and learn about the food, history and culture of fascinating Istanbul but at a local, backstreet level.
This is the perfect thing to do in Istanbul if you are interested in an authentic experience.
Myself and my two sons (aged 11 and 7) thoroughly and equally enjoyed this experience, would highly recommend Istanbul Food Walks! Great attention to detail, friendly and capable guides and it offered us a wonderful insight into a side of the city we just would not have been able to experience on our own. This is a seriously clever idea.

Well worth it!
This was one of the highlights of my trip to Istanbul. The guides couldn’t have been more helpful. I was brought to little gems that I would never have found myself. I love love love baklava and I was not disappointed. Highly recommended

A Taste of Istanbul!
Just loved this tour! As a foodie and someone who likes to get down with the locals, this tour was a highlight of my time in Istanbul! So great to explore the backstreets of this fabulous city, a bit away from the well worn tourist track, mingling with colourful local characters!

A Must for any food lover!
Just back from a short trip through Istanbul. We didn’t have much time and decided to go on a tour with this group to gain an insight of turkish foods and culture. We had a fab time, the guides were very knowledgable and oh so entertaining!! My kids were even engaged by the entertainment, the different foods and the turkish people they met. I would highly recommend this group and am going to stay longer the next time I go back to Istanbul!

I cannot recommend these Food Walks highly enough. How often have I visited a city and wished I could enjoy the food the locals eat rather than choosing the familiar. The guide knew the best foods to eat and made some exciting recommendations. I plan to visit Turkey again soon and will now know where to buy the things I enjoyed
