We booked a cooking course and not only did we learn how to cook beautiful food grime across Turkey, but we also had 5 hours of great conversation.

We really enjoyed our cooking class in Istanbul. We started the class by walking to local shops and learning about different Turkish food. The hosts were very kind and knowledgeable. It was a relaxing evening with great company, food, and wine. Would highly recommend this experience to any foodie in Istanbul!

We have just returned from the best cooking class ever. We met Mr. Liva who took us through a tour of all the small food speciality shops in his town. We then went to the coolest loft for our cooking class where we cooked up a storm. Recipes we will definitely make when we go home. Mr. Liva and Ms. Emine were incredible hosts who shared their love of cooking and Turkey with us. Truly a special experience as it felt like a dinner party with friends. Must take this class if you are in Istanbul!

My family and I chose this particular tour simply by doing some research online and it has to be one of the best experiences we had whilst visiting Turkey.

Asyin, our very knowledgeable tour guide, was wonderful and the whole cooking experience could not be faulted from start to finish.

By far, one of the best tours I’ve done in my travels. Could not recommend this enough!

We were the only two on the neighborhood tour and cooking class, which made it a very personable and personal experience. The highlight for us was visiting very special spots and shops in the İstanbul neighborhood of Kurtuluş that we probably never would have ventured into. The food was great and the hospitality was fantastic.
