Highlight of my trip to Turkey! Value for money!

I loved Latif as our tour guide, he provided us with historical facts about Turkey and its food interlaced with personal anecdotes and a striking sense of humour :) Being a foodie myself, I appreciate the fact that we were able to visit both sides of Turkey and also enjoy impeccable food. The places Latif took us, we had the yummiest food in all of Turkey(we had already been there for 6 days and we did the food tour on our last day). My favourite part of the food tour was the authentic Turkish breakfast spread. I thoroughly recommend this food tour and Latif as your tour guide. I promise, you shall not regret!

My partner and I loved our food tour with Latif. He is very warm, friendly and knowledgeable about food and the culture of Istanbul. We loved all the food stops and learning about the city’s history and culture. I would definitely recommend to friends and family, a great way to spend a day exploring the city.

Authentic turkish experience!

Latif is an amazing tour guide and understands authentic turkish food. His tour gave us a great introduction to turkish cuisine and some of Istanbul's neighborhoods. We loved every minute and appreciate the food and people do much more! Thanks Latif - we highly recommend your tours!

Quality food, quality tour

Such a great foodie tour! I contacted Latif directly and he set me up for the following day’s outing. The weather happened to be particularly wet so he accommodated to make sure we were getting maximal value for money. Loved the relevant factoids about Turkish food and culture. The group is kept to a manageable size and I’m thankful for it. Do you love trying new food and have just arrived in Istanbul? What are you waiting for?!

Best Thing You Can Do in Istanbul

Doing this food tour was the best decision we made in Istanbul. Latif is so knowledgeable about Turkish culture, history, and how it all entwines with the food. He took us to a lot of places we wouldn't necessarily have found ourselves, and had us try things that we wouldn't have ordered off the menu. He really personalized the tour to us as well--for example, when we said we had already been to Uskudar, he decided to take us to Kadikoy instead so we could see a different area of the city. Definitely come hungry because we ate enough to last us the entire day!

The food tour with Latif was amazing. We have been traveling all of Europe for 1.5 months and this was easily the best tour we have done. He takes you a ton of food places that otherwise would be missed. He explains interesting details and tells you about the history and current events of the city. Latif also went out of his way to bring me to a barber and translate for me so that I could get my haircut. We cannot recommend Latif’s food tour enough!

This tour was much more than I could have ever hoped for. We got to experience so many types of food from this cosmopolitan culture and Latif shared the origin stories of each with us. Not surprisingly, in learning about the foods of a culture, you learn much about the culture itself. The tour guide himself is a pleasure to spend the day with, which made the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It was interesting, fun, humorous, and relaxing all in one.

Amazing experience

Absolutely amazing experience! Would highly recommend this tour. Latif was so fun and personable and had us laughing all day! We didn’t want the tour to end, and when it did we continued to a bar down the street with new friends. You can tell Latif is extremely thoughtful in the food stops and has created wonderful relationships with them. As you can imagine come hungry
