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

We took the streetfood Tour an it was probably the best part of the intire trip. Taci, the smiling and friendly guide, gave an amzing insight of turkish cuisine and with bits of turkish history. Afterwards our stomachs, as well as our senses, were full. Highly recommendable!!

My wife's family had been on this glorious tour some years ago. My wife and I on our honeymoon just thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Taj (that's how her name is pronounced). My wife said that it was EVEN BETTER the second time around. And we are looking forward to our third in hopefully the not too distant future. Being... More

We did the Two Markets tour with Renan in late July. It was worth every single penny and calorie! A unique way to learn more about Turkish culture and experience the fabulous city of Istanbul. The city and the food are the stars of this tour but Renan was charming and highly knowledgeable with perfect English. When they say "eat... More

Visiting the spice market and then cooking with Selina in her kitchen was the highlight of our visit to Istanbul. (That is a very big compliment given what a beautiful and interesting city this is.). Our six hours with her and her wonderful co-worker Sandy gave us not only a real taste of Turkish and Sephardic cuisine, but also the... More

The spice tasting was a treat and Selin's home was very welcoming. we had a group of 7 people and there was plenty of room and plenty... More

On our second trip to Istanbul we'd seen all the major sights but wanted to learn more about making Turkish food, so we signed up with Selin. Great decision! She met our group of four promptly at 9:30 am outside the Spice Market. The day begins at a spice business that has been in one family for generations. You won't... More

Excellent tour with Taci trying street food on the Asian side of Istanbul. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to a variety of interesting places to eat and shops to visit. The street food tour was the highlight of our trip to Istanbul for my husband and we would have no hesitation in recommending - if you have... More

This was the best food I had in Istanbul, and the exciting thing is now I know how to make all of it (thanks to the cookbook). Selim runs a very professional business with a touch of familial comfort. Her apartment was beautiful, the food was exquisite, and the fellow travelers in our class were friendly and interesting. I don't... More
