Food tour Istanbul?

My husband and I are taking the B of Istanbul tour this fall followed 3 days later by the B of Turkey tour. We intend to arrive 2 days prior to the start of the first tour and like to start in a new city with a food tour to get the "lay of the land." Can any recommend a food and wine tour for Istanbul. Thanks!

Check out Culinary Backstreet food tours. I’ve heard excellent things about them. Haven’t been able to try for myself though.

My wife and I took a six hour "Taste of Two Continents" food tour by Yummy Istanbul last May prior to our RS Best of Turkey Tour. Their web site is: The tour was limited to six people and started in Istanbul Old Town. and ended six hours later in the Asian neighborhood of Kadikoy. Our guide was Turkish but spoke fluent English. We sampled many different types of food in about 10-12 establishments. It was a fantastic experience and provided us with a great orientation to the culture and areas of Istanbul. We highly recommend Yummy Istanbul.
