Do not miss this!!!!!
Apr 2021
Amazing food, culture immersion, fun and a cooking class as well! My husband and I had a terrific time on this tour and cooking class. I love to cook and this was a great class with also culture, stories and a a great time. Don't miss this as it gives you so much more than lunch. Nassim is so accommodating and kind. He is patient with those learning and will answer any questions you have if you do cook a great deal. I cannot recommend this tour enough. I wish I had more time to do the other tours they offered.!

What a lovely, lovely experience. Nassim was just great, and exceeded our expectations. It was my sister and myself. We are seniors, and he was just so considerate, knowledgeable, accommodating, and to top it off he was a great chef. He was impeccable in regard to cleanliness. Taking great care to make sure our environment was safe, sanitary, and just being extremely careful. Also the other staff that were involved were very helpful, and just top notch to taking great care for our well being. This activity was so worth the money and no one should hesitate to go on this marvelous adventure. Thank you again Nassim for making this the highlight of our trip to Cancun.

Wonderful immersion of culture!
Nassim was the chef that picked us up. We headed to a local market to pick up ingredients for our lunch. We stopped at a local stop for a tamale it was hands down the best tamale I’ve ever had! Once arriving at the restaurant we made guacamole sopapillas rice pudding enchiladas with homemade sauce and quesadillas. This was a hands on experience and well worth the money. If you are a foodie, a home chef, someone who loves culture this is the experience for you.

Great Experience!
My wife and I had a great time with our tour guide/cook Angel. He picked us up at our hotel and took us to a market were we got all the food for our meal. Good place to get some souvenirs, much cheaper than the places by the hotel. Make sure to come hungry, you will have more food than you can eat. After the market we went to a restaurant and prepared our meal. It was a great experience and we learned a lot about Cancun and Mexico from our guide. If we come back to Cancun we will definitely try one of their other tasting tours.

Excellent way to learn a little Mexican culture and meet likeminded people
Guide chef Cai (pictured) was knowledgeable and personable. Pepe, another guide who has a big personality joined us for the market and street food tour. The tour was well organized and informative. Met 4 other couples who share similar interests and had a fun time cooking together. Highly recommended for food enthusiasts of all levels.
