David and our guide with Haku Tours were so amazing. This is a can't miss experience. Im inspired to cook more creative dishes when i return home. They were very knowledgeable and shared so many gyms avout food and Peru in general with us. Everything was so beautifully prepared (we were coached well!) and delicious. And the mounds of Peruvian fruit we tried were to die for.

Great tour, starts in Miraflores but then you go straight to the historical centre - so you get a bit of a city tour on top of the food tour! You'll get to try quite a few local snacks (make sure you come hungry) and then you get a nice pisco sour at the end. Definitely recommend.

Johana was a great guide, very knowledgeable and easy going; she showed us the best food in downtown Lima. Highly recommend doing this tour in combination with the morning one in Barranco on your first day in Lima to find the best places to eat and have a drink

Dulce was great showing us best places to eat and drink in Barranco and also providing a bit of background info on the area. I liked all food and had no issues after

Very well organized! I would recommend the adventure to anyone!
