Great experience and couldn't have asked for a better guide than Jean-Paul. Was a busy evening since it was Valentine's day but we were able to be flexible and had a good evening.

Paula offers a genuine local experience, shopping at the market, travelling on the bus to her home, meeting her mum Mercita and preparing gorgeous causa, ceviche and pisco sours in their apartment. Everything was fresh and made from scratch and we enjoyed a lovely meal as we learned about day to day life in Lima. Before we left, Paula gave us great recommendations on her favourite Lima museums and restaurants and where to find the best coffee in Miraflores. All in all a great experience which I can really recommend for any visitor to Lima.

Jean-Paul was a great tour guide, telling us about the city, the people, the food, and general recommendations for the rest of our time in Lima. I really liked that we started out in one area of town, and took the local bus to another... it's something I never would have done as a tourist. I would have liked a bite to eat before going on an hour ride/walk around the Barranco though. As promised, we went to places frequented by locals - not a hint of tourists besides or group. I would have really liked one more stop at restaurant instead of a bar at the end (or at least a bar that serves snacks)... the drinks were great, though I was looking to try even more local foods. Great tour all around!

We felt very welcome and comfortable in the home of hostess Paula following a brief visit to a local food market and bus ride. This a very real experience where you get to learn how to make great Peruvian dishes and drinks, but also gain a real insight into local culture and lifestyle. Paula’s family provided excellent encouragement and back up support, particularly when I created a Pisco shower rather than a Pisco sour (embarrassing for me but they had seen it all before). Can highly recommend and they give you the recipes too, so you can try when you get home. Great fun that is best followed by a siesta given the great food and drinks.
