Summary of The Day: Eat a home-cooked meal with a local Turkish family; enjoy an evening mingling with locals at some of their favorite haunts.
The Turks are known to be some of the most generous and hospitable people in the world; on this tour you'll have the opportunity to experience their world-class hospitality firsthand. You'll join a local family for a typical Turkish meal. Your bilingual guide will act as interpreter during the meal - all part of the authentic local experience! Chat with the family and hear what it's like to live in Turkey today. Sharing a meal with a local family is a great privilege and an opportunity to gain insight into the Turkish way of life.
After feasting on delectable local dishes, we'll go out for a walk through the backstreets of Istanbul. Get a sense of the communal lifestyle in Istanbul and learn about the demographics of this endlessly fascinating city.
Afterwards, we'll head to a popular local hangout with breathtaking views of the Marmara Sea. Find a comfortable spot to watch a local match, or strike up a conversation with the locals. Backgammon is hugely popular in Istanbul; if you don't know how to play our local guide will be happy to teach you the basics.
For the last part of the tour you'll have a chance to try two of Turkey's favorite pastimes: tea drinking and water-pipe smoking. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
