During your tour you will dine at selected local restaurants where you can experience Turkish Cuisine at its best, in the most authentic fashion. We avoid restaurants serving international and/ or Western-style meals.
I have carefully selected from hundreds of restaurants; we may be eating at a traditional meyhane; an old style lokanta located at an old neighborhood, a village style restaurant where we eat a home-cooked meal.
After several days of included dining, you will also have the opportunity to explore restaurants and dine on your own, with the assistance of erkut Bey’s recommendations.
Museums & Historical Sites:
The majority of museums and historical sites we will visit are operated by Turkish Ministry of Tourism & Culture. Some of them may be run by local authorities.
All museums and historical sites have visiting etiquett. Some of them may prohibit photography using flash; some of them may prohibit photography at all. A detailed brief will be given before each visit.
Please do not insist for photography in those which photography is not allowed.
