Renan met us in front of the Spice Bazaar and led us to one of the spice shops where we did a tasting. We then caught a ferry to the Asian side to participate in the cooking class. We all enjoyed preparing the food and Renan's explanation and of the dishes and the ingredients. Eating the food we prepared in... More

Renan met us on time and gave us a culinary education. The spice tasting is great fun and we sampled various delights over the evening. It's not cheap but I recommend it if your budget can stretch. I need to buy a bigger belt now!

Met in front of the Markets, couldn't have asked for a more knowable foodie! Renan knew all the right places and was a pleasure to met! Would definitely recommend to anyone planning on going to Turkey!

Turkey is a beautiful country with lovely people. Selin and her ladies do a wonderful job of filling you with local knowledge and leave you with a feeling that you've been blessed with true Turkish hospitality. We are a family of six that visited in early July right after the Ramadan holiday. We spent two days with Turkish Flavors. One... More

Spice Bazaar & Kadikoy Market Tour with Gourmet Lunch I am an Australian woman travelling alone in Istanbul and as is usual in a new city, struggling a little with the language and the etiquette. I thought I would try a little day tour to make myself feel more at home and Turkish flavours is so highly regarded it seemed... More

My family joined Taciser for a cooking class and market tour and couldn't have been happier. She's full of enthusiasm and genuine desire to share her knowledge about Turkish cooking and food shopping. She was fun and organized, and the whole experience was personal and unique. Highly recommend as a great introduction to the city and the country. Also wonderful... More

I can't urge you strongly enough--if you travel to Istanbul, join Taciser Ahvaz--Taci--for a Turkish Flavours culinary tour. I was there in mid-May (2016), and my glorious day with Taci framed and informed everything else I did in that intriguing city. As Taci points out, the complexity of Turkey is captured in its cuisine. At the Spice Bazaar, the colors... More

We had a great time touring the Spice Bazaar with Renan, then headed over to Kadicoy on the Asian side of Istanbul for an afternoon of cooking in Selin's beautiful kitchen. The food was delicious and we learned some good tips for re-creating classic Turkish recipes at home. A lot of the prep work was already done for us ahead... More
