It is definitely worth it! This cooking class was great. Went with two other friends, it was well organised, the dinner set up was lovely. The ceviche and pisco sour was delicious! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to do a cooking class in Lima. You could also buy wine from them so you could have a nice glass (or two) with your ceviche

A taste of Lima! I arrived a day earlier than my family and booked this last minute, I’m so grateful that I did!! This cooking class was my favorite part of Lima, they brought me to the market to pick out the fresh food and then back to the spot to cook. We made Causa and Lomo Saltado, and had a bunch of potatoes and fruits along the way. It was a great way to try a taste of Peru and the chef and guides were so so kind. 10/10 would recommend!

Perfect tour! An amazing half day tour! Everything about this tour was perfect and smooth. Julio was our guide and he was informative, funny, and personable. You see a lot of the main sights in downtown Lima for about 3.5 hours. The pickup and drop off from the hotel in Miraflores was on time and much appreciated.

Great introduction to Lima I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to get acquainted with Peru in general and the historic center of Lima in particular. Our bi-lingual guide, Saul, was very informative and had a great upbeat attitude. The transportation was a new, clean van and punctual.
