Amazing food on this tour! This was my 2nd time in Peru and I decided to try the colors and flavors tour with my family. Cesar was our tour guide again and as usual we had lots of fun. The food was outstanding! Absolutely delicious! We were picked up on time, there was excellent communication with the office etc. This is also a wonderful introduction tour to Lima and the wide selection of food available.

Fun family time! My family and I had a fun time with Chef Joseph and Gabby. We visited a market saw all the fresh produce and got to taste some very exotic fruits. The cooking class was lots of fun and everything was delicios. Gabby is lovely, very warm and friendly. Chef Joseph was an excellent instructor. All the other staff, the drivers, the lady helping with the washing up are very friendly and welcoming. This is an excellent experience, I highly recommend it. Also note that the tour company takes into consideration all dietary restrictions and there are lots of vegan options.

Cannot recommend this enough It was a phenomenal experience! Decided to book it the night before and I'm so happy I did. Leonardo was an incredibly friendly and welcoming guide and Josep was very patient and informative as he guided us while cooking. I'm going to recommend this to everyone who goes to Lima because this was truly a highlight of my trip!

Great customer service ! Unfortunately, our flight into Lima (where we were only going to spend a day at the end of a 17 day trip) was cancelled due to mechanical issues. Although we notified the walking tour people less than 24 hours prior to the security, they graciously refunded the full amount. If we get back to Lima, we will definitely book this again!

Great time with Gaby and Chef Ruth Gaby and Chef Ruth were exceptional guides and teachers. Everything went smoothly from hotel pick-up through the class. The market was fascinating and I enjoyed the fruit tasting. But the best part was the cooking - learning not only about Peruvian cuisine, but also picking up cooking tips that could be used on any kind of food. I would do this again with them in a heartbeat.

Enjoyable way to spend time in Lima Very fun cooking class. The Chef and her staff were very knowledgeable. Beef was a bit tough. Other than that, we had a good time. Oh, a glass of wine would have been a nice treat.
