Visit Istanbul’s tastiest attractions on this deliciously short city food break
Experience an in-depth insight into Istanbul’s vibrant local cuisine on this short but sweet food exploration of this ancient city. Explore the aromatic Spice Bazaar, visit the ancient Aya Sofia, sail down the Bosphorus and wander the streets of this great city all the while tasting its diverse and delectable food treats.
Munch your way across Istanbul, from the tasty street food cart to the meyhane (traditional tavern) in one of the city’s truly local (and non-touristy) food areas
From meze and cheese, to Turkish pastries, Maraş ice cream, and the epic Islak Burger, you’d better pack your appetite for this filling journey!
Most tours will leave you lost trying to explore the Aya Sofia on your own – here you’ll take a guided tour through the hidden tales of this magnificent one-of-a-kind monument
Enjoy a true ‘real food’ experience with a home-cooked meal with a local family. A typical meal and an insight into Turkish life, customs and family are all on the table
With a duration of 2-3 days, Bite-size Breaks are the ideal add-on to a longer holiday – or a mini adventure of their own. Departures are frequent and usually guaranteed.
Bite-size Breaks are slightly different to our group tours, with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence in your free time. You’ll have a leader for included activities only, but there is always support if you need it – simply call the number in your arrival pack.
Activities and tours are on a join-in basis, which means other travellers may join you at these times. You may also have different guides throughout the tour, in order to give you the best experience of each activity.
There are no multi-share accommodation nights on this trip.
This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of a country’s cuisine.

If you have dietary requirements, simply contact your agent at the time of booking for further information on how this may impact on your ability to take part in included activities and meals. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!
