Ask a hundred visitors to Istanbul to tell you what they did during their trip and you will likely get a hundred variations of the same answer; temple, bazaar, palace. Ask them if they know the real Istanbul and you might get a reply about one of the sultans of the Ottoman Empire.

With your fabulous guide explore the finest speciality food shops the city has to offer. Revel in hamburger excellence at ‘Basta Street Food Bar’.
