Our guide was amazing and the señorita that allowed us into her home to learn how to prepare an authentic dish was as sweet as can be. From going to the market to enjoying the dish... a truly incredible experience. Donn't miss out!

Great host and hostess! But the experience is to expensive for what u get .. and they shouldnt do more then 6 people at one time . Instead of 10. They warned us for this but we didnt have another choice for the date.. Instead of warning they should say its full.

This was an excellent tour and we really enjoyed it thanks to Rudolfo and Laura. We loved both parts - the visit to the market and the cooking experience itself. We did review the tour right after our trip and expected to receive the recipes but they never arrived. We hope to see them soon.
