This is a fun tour of eating different local foods while walking around using variety of public transportation all over Istanbul. Sercuk is a knowledgeable and friendly guide accomodating our needs and preferences. We highly recommend this walking tour.

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.

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!

Lovely tour with Kursat that covered both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. It was pretty special to step off a boat into another continent. I still daydream about the stuffed mussel with lemon and the stuffed eggplant dolma.
