These gourmet culinary tours in Lima were designed so that visitors explore the local cuisine, culture and traditions while being treated like royalty in the City of Kings. All in one day, we take visitors to a local market, secret garden cafes, and Lima’s landmark restaurants where they will prepare Peru's flagship dish and drink - Cebiche and the Pisco Sour - as they wind through the city's most emblematic districts. « less

I had a great time on this tour! The guide was wonderful and the tour included a nice mix of points of interest, like the Bridge of Sighs and Huaca Pucallana, with food stops - we started with coffee, had a milkshake, then tried fruits at the market, followed by a variety of appetizers - and then the cooking class...

As a single it is a bit difficult to know if the tour you are going on will work for just one. This was great. There were only 2 people on my tour - both of us single women. The guide was very enthusiastic and easy to follow. I enjoyed the variety of food type things we did from seeing... More

We chose this attraction for our one day in Lima because of the rave reviews in Trip advisor and we were far from disappointed. Lucas met us in good time in the hotel and we then went on to try a variety of Peruvian food and drink. We failed at the Pisco Sour competition but our ceviche was the best... More

I live here in Peru but have never had the opportunity to make my own ceviche. The class started on time (which is an amazing feat by itself) and the staff was really friendly. The pisco making was fun and interactive. The ceviche was delicious and educational. The only bad part was that they really don't share the full recipe... More

Samatha & Lucas are wonderful ambassadors for the Peruvian culture and its gastronomy. It was a great visit walking and exploring and experiencing the various flavors of the country. Our Canadian group was more than happy to be in the warm weather and tasting the various delights of Peru!

Lucas was our host and he did a great a great job of making all feel comfortable. The group was six and all picked up at different hotels. We did the day gourmet tour and, as the web site details out the itinerary, I won't go over it. It all was delivered as promised. We have been to lima on... More

My group of 8 was greeted by Davis at the Callao gate and he is a very pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable guide. The tour of the Lima market, the preparation of our fish dish and pisco sour, the appetizers, and even the coffee break were carefully selected by the Lima Gourmet Company. We had a chance to meet and discuss... More

What can I say about this tour other than it was exceptional from start until the very end. We were collected from our hotel by David who was very friendly, professional and knew a lot about the local area, produce, people and places. We participated in everything from sampling fresh market fruit and divine coffee to a gourmet lunch and... More

We were on a cruise when we visited Lima, and were wondering why we had decided to join a gourmet tour when we were experiencing culinary delights on a daily basis on the cruise ship. But, what a great day we had with David, visiting the various foodie places and learning so much about the city and Peru and its... More
