What you'll do

With this experience I want to make sure that you will get the ultimate introduction to both the city and to the way of life while having healthy and delicious Mediterranean dinner. We can organize your stay while having food and drinking tea, just like how Turkish people do.

- We'll start near to Taksim square and from there I will take you to my favorite spot for a light Mediterranean dinner full of VEGETERIAN/VEGAN options.

- You will have a chance to see Galata Tower and Istiklal (the most famous street of Istanbul) where you will get a good sense of the city.

- We will drink traditional Turkish tea in an old school bazaar while talking about local tips on things to do in and around the city, plus where to eat, drink, shop and explore. I'll make sure that no-one feels like a tourist but like a friend visiting.

Contact me for more information about the experience, I will do my best to personalize it for you :)

I am a yoga teacher born and raised in Istanbul. I also lived in UK, Italy, USA and South Korea. I was on the road on and off for over 7 years, always looking for the best local food and hidden gems.
Food has always been something close to my heart, so doing a tour that combines my love of food and Istanbul is a match made in heaven. I love to give my guests a knowledge of what life is like in Turkey. I strive to give my guests a combination of food experience and city experience.

It was a very pleasant, easy, low-key way to spend my first night in Istanbul. Bahar answered my many questions happily, and helped acclimate me as to what to expect in a variety of areas. Dinner was tasty, too. Thanks, Bahar!

For me, on my first night this was a perfect introduction to Istanbul. Compared to other experience options which tends to be longer, a 2h trip, as a intro was just perfect. Bahar was just wonderful and firstly re organized her schedule to accommodate my arrival timing and when I got lost navigating she even walked to the station where I was to meet me. Afterwards she sent me some other ideas for places to go/ restaurants to eat at, all of which was great and I would never have found that on my own. Bahar really goes the extra mile, highly recommended!

Bahar was really friendly, felt like having dinner in a new city with an old friend. She took us to a lovely restaurant with variety of food options and gave us helpful tips about our trip. Tea at a local stop after was a great way to cap off the evening with some great conversation about the local culture. She's well traveled and we'll informed, def recommend.
