Excellent experience with our guide, Dulce. She was so knowledgeable about the food of Lima and Peru and very kind and personable. We went to so many places that we never would have found by ourselves. So grateful that we found this tour. The food was delicious!

My sister and I joined this tour led by Dulce. The tour was excellent and Dulce was an amazing host! She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us lots of tips and answered all our questions about local places to visit, the local history and culture. Her English was very good as well. The food was delicious and we were very full at the end - it was a great experience and we highly recommend it.

This was such a good experience, Lourdes was our guide and she an absolutely fantastic job. Take this tour if you really want to learn about the amazing food and art in the Barranco neighborhood of Lima. They help you find popular dishes in small hole in the walls places which would be so hard to find without help.

This educational and delicious tour of food and street art was the perfect way to start our adventure in Lima, and our guide, Dulce, was excellent. There was a wide variety of tastings and our guide was very knowledgeable, which made navigating menus during the rest of our stay much easier and allowed us to try fruits and flavors we did not even know existed! Our guide also gave excellent recommendations and we later visited some of the places that we did not explore during the tour. 10/10 recommend!

What a fabulous 4 hours. Nathaly was amazing - charming, knowledgeable, fun and just an amazing tour guide. The food was all delicious as were the drinks. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon/evening in Lima - have now done these in Barcelona and Italy and can now add a super experience in Lima!!! An absolute worth doing event!

I took this tour on y final day in Peru and it was a wonderful way to finish my Peruvian adventure. We had the pleasure to be guided by Dulce who was an absolute pleasure and very knowledgeable.

The tastings and demonstrations were beyond my expectations. Best to come hungry it was more than just tastings !

We started with an intro to the main fruits and vegetables in Peru and the moved on to coffee and empanadas, followed by a fusion dish with Asian flavoring looking out over the Lima seaside as well as a delicious ceviche plate also with a demonstration. We closed out with a pisco sour and ice cream - overall delicious !

Thé tour is very good value considering the variety, quality and amount of dishes/drinks we tried. Communication in advance was also really well organized.

A must for anyone visiting Lima

In keeping with tradition of traveling, I booked a food tour in Lima hungry for knowledge and some of the wonderful cuisine available.

My boyfriend and I were greeted by a very friendly guide and the other couple who were participating. We then embarked on four magical hours of discovering the wonderful food available in Peru, tasting some of the best typical Peruvian dishes we had on our visit and learning more about this wonderful city and country.

Outstanding food (and drink) with the knowledgeable, kind and lovely guide Dulce! Highly recommended!
