Our urban adventures trip through the back streets and alleyways of Istanbul showed us more of what this magical city had to offer than our day long large group bus tour. Our fantastic guide asked if we were on a tight schedule and as we were not, the 3 hours turned into a leisurely 4 hours. We got to sample a variety of local traditional foods and drinks while taking in the history of the area. It was a privilege to be taken by a young local person to visit areas less frequented by foreign tourists.

The title "Istanbul - Picnic on Two Continents" doesn't do justice to this half-day experience. Our guide Can took us through the small alleyways surrounding the Spice Market, stopping at tiny cafes to taste single dishes, whilst slowly building up the ingredients for our final picnic. At each stop we learnt a little more about the food, language & culture. We found it ideal for a first day in Istanbul, and it made the rest of our stay much more productive, giving us the confidence with transport, eating, buying ... Can was enthusiastic & informative, adjusting our experience to our questions and to sights we encountered on our walk. The group of 8 was just right for interaction as we walked around Istanbul. Finally we crossed under the Bosphorus for our picnic in Asia, before returning to Europe by ferry. The time flew by, and we were too full to eat a meal that evening! To summarise - fun & informative. We would highly recommend it for early in your stay in Istanbul. Thank you Can for a memorable experience.

A fantastic experience, really enjoyable. It offers ways to see the city that you can't on more conventional tours.
Ms. Fiona O., Istanbul, 07 Apr 2015
Guide engaging and informative with excellent English. Format was ideal - great way to interact with a culture and people one wouldn't otherwise get to experience on such a short visit. Home-cooked food terrific, and local shisha bar atmospheric. Really memorable trip.

Beatrice was brilliant, as was the company's willingness to arrange our tour at very short notice. There could have been more transparency about the exchange rate to be used (this wasn't Beatrice's fault) - we had calculated a different amount of lira needed and this made for an awkward end to the tour.

Niche tour with Iskender despite aweful wheather. Thanks for this experience

after Nairobi, Istanbul was my second urban adventure. an excellent way to get shown around by a 'real' local, small groups (in fact we were lucky to be the only ones in the group)and no queueing for tickets as our guide had prepared everything
