Lots of stories and fun talking to other travelers. I've hand made tortillas before, but never from scratch..Even my husband had a nice time. Not a fancy or Gourmet cooking class but for a good cause and at a great price

Amazing couple hours learning about the local food and culture. And of course eating my (slightly burnt) homemade quesadillas, salsa and pozol! Definitely worth it!

Go to the storytelling with Amy, especially after you do the free-walking tour in town. She elaborates on many cultural details and is a great story teller!
