    Our Turkish cooking class began with a very warm greeting, a morning pick up and drive to the market. Entering Asli’s restaurant we were awed by its colorful ambiance, dining tables in the courtyard and inside, and her husband’s paintings decorating the wall. With Turkish tea and great conversation we sat down at one of the tables to pod cranberry beans, peel red peppers, cut up quince, crush garlic, chop onions, grate tomatoes, and roll vegetables in phyllo sheets. The smoky fragrance of the grilling eggplants, the quince and fennel simmering, and the rice pilaf with raisins and herbs made the experience deliciously sensual. The main dish was a work of art - fresh anchovies lining a clay pot, which was filled with rice pilaf and re-covered with the anchovies. We learned Asli’s special techniques for how to make her “magic sauce”, and the wonderful combination of herbs with fruits and vegetables. What a beautiful

They were on time for picking up. The tour guide spoke English and Turkish, so keep in mind when you choose your tour language, you will most probably not get one that speaks for example Dutch, however there will be someone in the group who can translate is my guess!:) They give you time enough to explore the places by yourself and are not to clingy, so that was really nice. Overall, today was really fun. I highly recommend it!

It was a great day! Our tour guide, Fatima was super knowledgable, personable, and a joy to tour with. She took our group to a great authentic Turkish restaurant. We asked her to help us make arrangements to get back to airport the next day & without hesitation said sure! After the tour that day, it was more than a tour, we made a friend!

Whole days was such great fun. Vedat the guy who took the photos and gave instructions was the most amazing friendly guy you could meet. Have to say if you dint want to get your fair wet on this trip it’s the wrong trip for you. Was the best fun I’ve had it such a long time. Fountain was good to see and the scenery was amazing too.

The program is very good. The places we stop are beautiful. The waterfall and the Bay all interesting and. nice. The restaurant food also delicious. The guide is responsible and helpful.
