    Miraflores food tour
    We had a great time exploring the great food in Lima with Luis. He showed us around Miraflores and all the small Restaurants we definitely wouldn't have found on our own. You get a lot of local food/drinks with a lot of historical background. He even organized some vegetarian options as one of us is vegetarian - didn't expect this as we booked the Tour and were really pleased. We definetly recommend going for a walk with Luis! :)

    Good Food, Average Experience
    I enjoyed the variety of foods we got to experience on this food tour, especially the fruits in the market and getting to experience hole-in-the-wall restaurants' specialties that I wouldn't have found myself. Luis was very friendly and clearly knowledgeable when it came to guiding us around to unique spots. I found the tour itself to be quite dry with a lot of dry historical information and repetition, and it was difficult to understand him sometimes. In addition, the guide asked each of us group members a lot of questions, almost classroom style where you get called on when you're not paying attention. It was a little too much for me and I found myself just wanting to enjoy my group and the food. Overall, we did get to try a lot of different foods in different locations, but the experience left me feeling a bit drained.

    Excellent food tour
    We were struggling for things to do on our last day in Lima and found this tour. It was a great end to our trip. The food market and ceviche were excellent. Luis was very informative and gave us lots of information about the history of Lima and the food we were trying. Definitely recommend this tour.

    Well worth it!! Unforgettable!
    This was an amazing experience!! We met in Miraflores and Louis took the time to explain some history to us which was appreciated. Then he took us into his family home to give us a true local experience!! Let me tell you, learning to cook a local dish from a professional chef is priceless! We love being one of the locals when we travel and this was perfect! We made Pisco sours, ceviche and causa! All three were delicious. They even shared their homemade pineapple juice! We greatly appreciate this family welcoming us into their home, teaching us their culture and most importantly the cuisine!! This is highly recommended experience!!

    Fantastic food tour and guide
    I highly recommend this food tour with Luis. His English is great, he is friendly, funny and very well informed. There were many food stops where we had an interesting story in every one. My ceviche was perfect, very juicy, fresh and yummy. We learned about some monuments too.

    Hands on, traditional, fun!
    What a cooking class is all about! Real food, real people, real cooking. What i enjoyed most was how active we were, we didn't just sit back and do the bare minimum, everything we ate we prepared ourselves with the trusting direction of a professional Peruvian chef in his own home. The experience was personal and fun and a great day for two girls from Europe. The Pisco was strong and the dishes were generous, such good value for money! Wishing these two great success going forward!

    Our tour guide called Luis was very knowledgeable, we were visiting numerous restaurants, venues and a great market to taste an incredible variety of food, we learnt many stories about preparations, ingredients and history of Peru. It was an excellent way to learn about culinary history.

    Delicious and informative
    I was expecting to walk around, try some good food, and go home full and happy. I did all that AND learned quite a bit about the history of the food. The fun facts paired with the food made eating all the more interesting. I highly recommend this food tour if you’re in Miraflores or the two other neighborhoods in Lima that the tours are offered. My favorite thing that I tried was his purple corn drink called chicha morada. If I could I would have drank a gallon of it.

    Private Tour from a Friendly Tour Guide
    This tour exceeded our expectations. Throughout the tour, our guide stopped and provided us some background about the history of Peru, as well as the history of the food and the ingredients of which it is made. Come hungry, you will eat plenty of food on this tour: including fruits, smoothies, small dishes, and desserts. Definitely recommend for those who have time and are staying in Miraflores.
