Nibbling in old local market with traditional dance show

The story of Istanbul can be told through its food. Neighbourhoods, cultures and history come into focus through a bite of bread, a nibble of cheese or a sip of tea. But it’s impossible to learn all this through a speeding (or barely inching along) car window! Like most of the world’s great food cities, Istanbul gastronomy is best experienced on foot. Our tour will begin with a walk around the spice market and local Mahmutpasa market while sampling unforgettable local street foods found only in Turkey (cig kofte, midye dolma, turkish coffee, kokorec). After nibbling around the spice market we will drop you off at a traditional Turkish dance show. The show takes about one hour and allows you to see the traditional costumes of different regions of Turkey. Each region of Turkey is represented in their own style of dance, musical instruments and henna night* traditions through lavish costumes, dances and music. The evening concludes with the popular belly dance show.  This is truly the tour for a real taste of the richness of Turkish cultural traditions.

*henna night is the traditional pre-wedding Turkish celebration for the bride and her closest female relatives and friends. It includes rituals of special costumes for the bride, dances and music.
