Loved this tour! Great balance of food/drink and sweet/savory. We went around Cusco and had full portions and Kacey was our guide. She was super friendly and informative! This is how we experienced the less tourist-y food and got to meet and learn about the locals that prepare the food too! You won’t be disappointed!

I did this tour with Kacey and had a blast. Having done many food tours I was impressed at how much food we actually sampled on this one, we got full portions at every stop, not little bites. Additionally, the tour does a great job of combining novel food that you may not have tried before with vendors who have interesting stories or a strong history in the city. I felt like I came away knowing much more not just about the cuisine but about the city as well. Great way to spend an evening.

I can’t say enough about this tour, it was fantastic from beginning to end. The guides (K and L) met us in a common square to start the tour on foot. The tour on foot took us around the Center of town sampling a number of local foods from street and market vendors. We learned about the city, the culture in Cusco and the beautiful foods available (and foods that would have been intimidating to try as travellers on our own). We were dropped off on foot back at the meeting location with full stomachs and a new knowledge and appreciation for the food of Cusco.
