As a proud nation of heritage dating back thousands of years, Turkish people have a lot in their background to feel lucky about. From a blissful set of manners to family customs, historical inheritance and more – Turkish culture houses a lot of solid foundation to share with the world. Over the past months, we have strived towards sharing whatever we can among these articles, be it lore behind ancient cities of Turkey, how to spend your time here, what excursions to take and why to take them. One thing we had yet to share is actually the most important one to some of us, especially myself – the writer of this article. Without beating around the bush, I should tell you that it is where to eat in Turkey. As Imperial Travel Turkey, we have one very particular tour in our Special Turkey Tours category that is directly onto this subject, that is Istanbul Culinary Tour.
Naturally becoming a hub of Turkish tourism and travel, Istanbul is home to more than just sightseeing and modern structurization. Coming from within the many layers of the magnificent metropolitan city’s multi cultural heritage and lore, there is a base of unrivaled food culture that is more diverse, sophisticated, intriguing and versatile than possibly any other in the world. This mixed food culture is a product of many civilizations integrating to each other over centuries, coming up with the most ingenious ways of eating. Today in modern Turkey, we follow that bit of custom with care but without even realizing that we are doing that. Many of our guests from all around the globe is inherently drawn to that, curious and willing towards learning and trying our eating habits. In our humble opinion, eating is half the traveling so it should never be overlooked. For that very purpose, we created the Istanbul Culinary Tour that is an exclusive full day experience. Starting from the very first piece of food you put in your mind at breakfast and even pre-snacks, everything is an interactive experience all around the city that takes you through old and foremost neighbourhoods of Istanbul like Besiktas where you have breakfast with an unmatched view of the Bosphorus. While you eat, you also get guided through the background behind every piece of historical spots that you see and get to travel in between two continents as you enjoy some street food on the ferries. Small pubs and restaurants will offer mid-snacks and other light food before you arrive to the Asian side of Istanbul – which is practically the culinary capital of Turkey. Brief sessions of tasting through honey vendors, olive shops and candy makers alike will lead you to a graceful neighbourhood that is the embodiment of peaceful coexistence between people of many different racial backgrounds that form a stunningly amazing food emporium. The trip ends with your arrival at the hotel – up to which point no second is wasted.
