Itinerary & Notes
Hosgeldiniz! Welcome to Turkey. Istanbul is the only city in the world to straddle two continents, so when you explore the streets, you'll see a great clash of east and west, that’s represented not only in its architecture, but in its delicious cuisine. Your Real Food Adventure kicks off at 6 pm today with an important welcome meeting, however if you arrive early, feel free to go out and explore what this captivating city has to offer. Following the meeting, head out for your first taste of Turkey with a classic – a kebab. While you might be familiar with the shaved meats and pita bread sensation, nothing beats the kind they wrap up in Istanbul. Please let your leader know beforehand if you will be requiring a vegetarian option (the eggplant kebab is also a winner).
