Arequipa, Peru1 contribution
I did this tour on my last afternoon in Cusco, since I didn't have many days in the city. Highly recommend this trip if you're limited on time and want to have as much good food in Cusco as possible. This was a wonderful tour of some great local food spots in the city that not every tourist might be aware of. I had the pleasure of tasting some awesome tamales, churros, anticuchos, causa and much more! Also got to learn some interesting facts about Cusco along the way too.

We did a private tour and were super happy with our guide Liz. The stops were delicious and Liz told us lots of interesting facts about Cusco, the history of the Incas and the dishes (both street food and restaurants) that we tried. She was very attentive guide who we can warmly recommend.

The food was amazing along with the history of the food and the city. We were also able to experience Cusco while it was so alive. The tour guides were wonderful and very helpful. If you can only do one thing in Cusco then make it this because you get more then just a tour.

This was beyond amazing! The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable with the food, culture and history. They were very considerate of the pace we took since it was our 2nd day in cusco. They also provided recommendations to other locations for dinner, along with following up to let us know we could reach out if we had any questions. We did a private tour as a couple and there where 2 tour guides (Luis and Liz). They provided hand sanitizer before each selection, brought plates and cups for us to use, and also washed all the local fruit we tried. The variety of places we got to try was a perfect mix of different Peruvian foods. Highly recommend if you'd like to dive into the food culture of cusco/peru and discover the local scenery.

Really enjoyed this tour. We ate a wide variety of foods on this tour, tamales, coffee, churros, street kabobs, pisco sour, potato dish, picarrones. We ate more than enough food. Our tour guide Liz was exceptional. She was delightful, knowledgeable, spoke clear english. Just a a joy. I recommend this as a very worthwhile tour while in Cusco.
