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!

I took the Spice Bazaar and Kadiköy market tour. Taci was a great guide. She's friendly, smart, and has a mischievous twinkle in her eye. She had a great rapport with us and with the market vendors. We saw and tasted delicious things while learning about Turkish food culture. We ended with a delectable meal at Ciya, which was one... More

Thank you so much Taciser! What a fantastic way to immerse yourself into the Turkish culture. The spice market was amazing then the boat and cooking in the private kitchen was beyond our wildest expectations. The food was amazing and you were a wonderful host to us!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!

My traveling companion and I had a great experience on the 3 Markets/2 Continents tour on August 17. Our guide was excellent, very personable, and the food throughout the tour was delicious. The highlight was the chance to go to the local Monday farmers' market in Goztepe, an entirely untouristed residential neighborhood. Having been introduced on the tour to Kadikoy... More

She showed us an area we never would of visited on our own, showed us incredible shops, tried some really interesting food that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our food walk with Turkish Flavours for our first day in Istanbul. We went on the “Spice Bazaar and Kadikoy Market Tour with Gourmet Lunch” led by Taciser. She was an excellent and enthusiastic guide and host in a city that can feel overwhelming at times. It was obvious by the rapport Taciser had with each of... More

We took an afternoon meyhane tour with Taciser and it was amazing and absolutely worth it! Ideally, we would have done the Grand bazaar tour but were very limited in time and couldn't make the morning meeting time. We are so glad to have gotten a great experience still on the European and Asian side of Istanbul. Moving around with... More

We spent a wonderful day with Selin and Renan of Turkish Flavours. Due to my wife's gluten allergy and our four year old daughter being with us, we booked a private tour for the day. Renan met our family of three at the entrance to the Spice Market. From there, she took us to one of the oldest shops, where... More

This was THE best day of our 10 tour of Greece and Turkey! Taciser met us promptly at the appointed time and led us on the tour of a lifetime through the exotic spice market, on a ferry from Europe to Asia, and through boutique shops on both sides. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of Turkish flavors and foods is contagious.... More

What a fantastic day spent wandering the markets withTaciser! Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the produce and cuisine of Turkey is second-to-none. Taciser introduced us to lesser known ingredients, discussed recipes, answered all of our many questions and gave historical context for the delicious dishes at Ciya. An absolute treat!
