Kevin est un guide fun qui a su nous accompagner pendant ce tour. Il nous a fait découvrir les principales spécialités de viande dans le marché local, puis un délicieux ceviche et enfin nous avons terminé chez un glacier aux goûts originaux et bons. Pas besoin de petit déjeuner le matin, vous serez rassasiés jusqu’au soir !

Since only the two of us were registered, we got a private tour. Iveth was a great guide, told us a lot about the city, culture and food. We tried and ate a lot and it was all in all a great experience!
