Better things to do.

Our guide was very good and we were pleased to have her lead us. The price is high compared to other Istanbul tours from Viator. The food part was OK, but not great. Ice cream at 10 o'clock in the morning isn't for everybody and Turkish coffee is very strong as you are warned. Suggest low sugar not medium sugar. Medium sugar is too sweet.

Dear William, the street food tour is a tour tour that can vary from person to person and according to people's taste. Thank you for your kind comments, this would be very helpfull for our future guests. Best Regards, Emel Kilic.

Delicious food and great way to experience the city.

We did this tour as a family, with Nesli who was wonderful - funny, considerate and bubbling with information to share about the culture, customs, history and of course, food. Each one of the tastings she had curated was unique and stuff that we would have never come across by ourselves. Travelling by ferry, the tram and the tunel to Istiklal Street, crossing over Galata bridge at sunset, were all great experiences. There is a fair bit of walking involved; my mom had some unexpected issues but Nesli improvised beautifully and went out of her way to help us and still give us a great time. I loved walking through the bylanes of Istiklal street, discovering where locals hang out for coffee and food, again something we may not have done by ourselves. The tour ended in the Spice Market, where again Nesli guided us on how to pick genuine products, delicacies etc. We came away with a deeper appreciation of Turkish culture and having made a new friend.

Itach our guide was excellent but communication between Viator and Karavan Travels was not good

Viator contracts with Karavan Travels which in turn contracts it out to multiple subcontractors. The communication between Viator, Karavan Travels and the agency which actually takes you on the tour is very poor. Karavan never communicated where the meeting place was and when Viator informs you of the meeting place, the actual person who takes you around is never told where to pick you up.

Our guide Elif was really great and she told us a lot of Istanbul. It was the first time that I liked turkish coffee - she showed us the right places. I would highly recommend this tour.

Such an interesting tour! Really well thought-out and very smoothly executed. We were really well looked after from start to finish and our guide was really entertaining and fantastically knowledgeable. We saw Istanbul from a totally different perspective and traveled all over the city - I would thoroughly recommend the experience!

Our guide was Selcuk Ersan and it was a small group. Selcuk was very informative and a lot of fun to talk to about food and everything else about Turkey. A great day.
