What a great way to spend some time in Istanbul. We first went to a specific shop in the spice bazaar where we sniffed emulsions and tasted spice and Turkish delight. We then ferried to the Asian side to someone's home where we prepared and ate 8 different dishes from borek to stuffed apricots. The hostess Sanil was gracious and... More

As a woman travelling alone, this was the perfect way to get orientated to Istanbul on my first full dat there. Taciser met a group of 5 of us at the Spice Bazaar and took us on a five hour amble where our senses were bombarded with divine tastes, sights and smells. She then took us by ferry across to... More

Baubles and bangles and flying carpets are great gifts from Istanbul but if you want to bring home something that will spread the wealth well beyond your shopping list or your pictures, sign up for an all day cooking class at Turkish Flavors. Selin is a master chef and a terrific teacher. A day of exploring recipes with a small... More

We went for the food tour. I found this food tour on lonely planet's list of things not to be missed in Istanbul. It has many tours like cooking local food, street food and spice tasting tour etc. There are many people who do this tour but this lady called Selin was one of the first and the tour is... More

This cooking class with Turkish Flavours was an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable experience. We met Selin outside of the Spice Market and then took a quick stroll to one of the shops inside, owned by a friend of hers. They let us sample about 15 spices, along with some Turkish Delights and encouraged us to smell their variety of dried... More

Turkish Flavours not only provided an amazing time in Istanbul and fantastic experience and meal in Bodrum too. Selin who runs the show was a kind and generous presence and not only did my husband and I have a great time, but our 13 and 15 year old daughters did as well!!! Selin also organized a wonderful guide for us... More

Four of us did the food tour with Taciser. Excellent experience and a highlight of our trip. We met her at the entrance to the spice market and took the ferry across to the Asian side. Very fun during evening rush hour with someone who knows how! She took us to many shops. We had many tastings and gave wonderful... More

As I am heading back to Istanbul, my memories of the cooking lesson I took with Turkish flavours came back. In reading all the positive reviews, I must admit that maybe Selin, the owner and teacher, was not having one of her best days....in short, while Tacisar has a very nice disposition in carrying out the spice market tour, the...

I was very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your experience with Turkish Flavours. Many of our customers have returned on subsequent trips to Istanbul and this is the first time we have ever received such a negative review. If you could be specific about the dishes you did not care for, we would like to review them.... More

She is warm, friendly, professional, informative and a pleasure to spend a day with. I am a foodie and my husband likes to eat. She met us at specific place by the Spice... More

As a dedicated foodie I cannot recommend this enough. My friend and I chose to go on a guided tour of street food places in the Asian part of Istanbul. Luckily we had Taciser from Turkish Flavours as our guide - she was wonderful and very knowledgable about all matters Turkish - not only the great cuisine but also its... More
