Since my childhood I love to ride and and sample foods from various stalls in the streets of Istanbul. 3 years ago I founded a food and urban life blog of Istanbul, and now I would like to share my discoveries with you!Beyoğlu-Eminonu street food line: We'll travel from Beyoğlu to Karaköy, then Hodjapasha to heart of Eminonu, exploring only the most authentic foods not made for tourists. In between bites, we'll stop at some of my best kept secret shops for clothing,kitchen equipments, spice markets and other authentic wares while we work up our appetites. Recommendations on restaurants, markets, and history will be provided. There will be bits of history and culture. Also along the way we will also be checking out some of the beautiful murals and street art that is often over looked!

If you are looking for an incredible journey to delight all your senses then Turkish Flavours is easily the best food tour available in Istanbul. I travelled solo to Istanbul and being a 'foodie', right on top of my list was to take a food tour. I was recommended by a friend to take the Turkish Flavours tour and what... More

My husband, adult daughter and I recently took Selin Rozanes’ 11 day “Turkish Flavours” tour. What an amazing experience of exploring, tasting, cooking, and meeting never-to-be-forgotten people. Selin is attentive to the details of making this trip all it can be for her guests – the accommodations were not only first-rate in quality, but each was unique in it’s physical... More

Taciser Atvaz is an excellent guide: knowledgeable, warm and very enthusiastic. She introduced us to delicacies of Turkish cuisine, arranged a multi-course meal at an excellent restaurant and threw in many delightful surprises. Whatever questions we had, she knew the answers. The tour was everything as advertised and we especially appreciated how easily they accommodated a vegetarian. Highly recommended.

Our guide Taciser brought us around the Egyptian Spice market, the shops surrounding it and brought us on a ferry across to the Asian side. I enjoyed the spice and Turkish local cuisine tasting! The spice tasting was especially fun and we brought back tons of spices and teas all vacuum packed. The local street food like stuffed mussels and... More

This tour was a great way to both sample Turkish cuisine & see the sights of Istanbul. Taciser was a wonderful guide - she tailored the tour to us and was approachable and very knowledgeable about all aspects of Istanbul and its culture. The lunch at the end was also delicious and plentiful - a fantastic day. Highly recommended!

Taciser Ayvaz took us on a journey through Istanbul, showing us spices, telling us the traditions, stories, explaining how certain dishes are made, while having us tasting bits and pieces - make sure you don;t eat before and after. I found it extremely interesting, in one day you get to learn a lot about the culture, the cuisine and ingredients.... More

I was amazed my friends wanted to do a cooking class - that is my style as I am quite the home chef - but because of the tour of Booth 51 at the Spice Market and a trip to the Asia Side of Istanbul my friends decided to try their hands at cooking. Selin was delightful and forgave us... More
