The walking tour was great experience for those who want to have a proper taste of lima culinary scene! make sure you start the day without breakfast or coffee as you'll need the space. You start the day with a coffe tasting in artesianal coffee shop. It gives you an appreciation of the types of coffee available and wakes you up! from there you head to a local sandwich shop, then the market to sample fresh and exotic fruits and of course cerviche! Our guide was very informative about the foods ands history and culture behind all the food products we ate and also the landmarks within the city. I would recommend to anyone who wants to sample alot of different flavours and be informed about places to eat!

I was picked up on time and taken to a local market where we bought the ingredients. A lot was explained to me about the Peruvian vegetables and fruits. Then we went to the kitchen, where we prepared 4 different things: Peruvian snacks, fruits, Causa and Lomo Saltado. The chef was so nice and friendly and the food was delicious. Can only recommend the tour!

Amazing! Had a wonderful time at the market. Then we started cooking and chatting. It was just like home with my circle of friends. We shared stories and tips and tradition. Would do it again just for the amazing company and the food was excellent! So much fun.

Very nice and competent guide Rudi. He introduced us to local food at local markets and places. During our walk in the downtown of Lima we saw a lot of historic buildings and were introduced to daily life of People Jere.

Un viaje muy relajante! La costa de Lima se ve preciosa desde el mar. Muy recomendable esta actividad.
