My partner and I had a great time on this trip. The host is very friendly, accommodating and made everyone feel welcome. Very good English speaking and tries to make sure everyone understands all the way through. We first went to the market to pick up ingredients which was a lot of fun and it was great to see so many fresh ingredients. The cooking experience was relaxed, well paced and with it being a small group, felt personable. We prepped and cooked some great dishes. Would highly recommend.

Clear instructions, well-organised class, fuss-frew pick up, clean work areas, sufficient equipment, friendly and engaging instructor who taught at an appropriate speed and was extremely patient and accommodating. Cosy, intimate, small class size good for tailored help and better lesson pace.

It was a wonderful, fun and interesting afternoon. Our teacher and host was so lovely. We were given a recipie book at the end of the day! So we can make food at home. Thank you so much for a great day

It was our first time rock climbing and they made it so enjoyable! Great instructors. The scenery was beautiful. For sure one of our trip highlights!

Newle was a great guide, also the recipes are also very tasty and seem to be very authentic! Great experience overall.
