The area
Address
Neighborhood: Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

A not to miss Great Turkish Experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
We arrived and upon getting aprons and chefs' hats were introduced to the Chef who taught us few Turkish recipes. We participated on the creation of the different delicious dishes. Then we enjoyed eating them. The whole event lasted two and a half hours. We also were provided with the recipes so we can cook them at home. We had lots of fun! It was an experience that without a doubt we would repeat!

Great experience, really loved spending time with Alp and his Aunt!
Oct 2020
We cooked with our guide Alp and his aunt Serpil at her house! It was a great experience, and we were really comfortable spending time with her at home. Food was great, and it was a very memorable experience! We even took leftovers home and ate it on our balcony of our hotel the next evening for dinner!

Awesome Bakalava making course
Dec 2019
This was an activity that was organised by Alp who very kindly arranged for a baklava making course at a local Turkish home. We were very privileged to be able to see, experience a local family life as well as learn from a very experienced chef of how to make baklava. The whole family took part and we all enjoyed making the baklava and then eating it!! Yum!! Thank you Alp for such an awesome experience.

We did a private food tour through the spice market and over to the Asian side. It was great to see where more of the locals go and what they eat. So much knowledge and food! Would highly recommend to anyone who loves their food!

Group cooking
Jul 2019 • Friends
Myself and a group of friends attended a cooking class that was coordinated by Alp. The class was hands on and informative. I feel confident that I can replicate these dishes (stuffed epplant, red lentil soup, and some dish that was equivalent to a samosa) and and seasoning to my liking.

Best Baklava class
Apr 2019 • Solo
After searching all over Istanbul for a Baklava baking class I signed up with Afiet olsun and I’m so glad I did.
They took great care of me, The class was with
A lady that has done this all her life and is a great teacher. It was hands on and I’m confident I can make the exact replica at home. From the friendly ride to the fantastic interpreter everything was taken care of and it’s worth every cent.
I highly recommend this class if you like eating or baking Baklava.

Amazing Food Tour - Off the Beaten Path
Sep 2018 • Couples
We did a food tour through Alp and it was amazing! Our guide took us not only to local and classic food stops in Istanbul but also to mosques and other sites that all related. The areas we visited were some of the oldest neighborhoods in Istanbul and there was no other tourist insight. It was a special day and we ended the tour with our bellies full and eye open to another beautiful side of Istanbul!
