I'm so happy I found Kunakkuna Experiences for our group! They are quick to respond and I was able to set up a gastromonic tour of Quito for our group with ease. Grace met us and took our tastebuds on a journey! The market and all the fruits and foods we tried was fantastic and we especially enjoyed the stop at Yumbos chocolates at the end of the tour. We loved that Grace was so knowledgeable about the city and knew some fantastic spots to take us. This was a perfect way to start out our trip. They are so friendly here and I wish them all the best with this touring company! I highly recommend doing any type of tour with them - you won't be disappointed.

More substantial food would have been great. Got to try a few sweets, some juice and an empanada but would have been nice to have something more fulfilling besides sweets (soup, seafoods). Even at the market there were so many options but we only got to try the fruit juice and some fruits which was disappointing. Staff were friendly, but have done a similar tour in Japan which was much better.
