Travelling through the streets and restaurants/stores of San Carlos de Bariloche sampling everything from empanadas to chocolate covered raspberries during a thunderstorm on January 1, 2020 was most memorable!! I feel like I got to know more about this city through this food tour.

My husband and I enjoyed interacting with the local guide and a couple from Germany. Despite a thunderstorm we proceeded with umbrellas in hand. We enjoyed the food and the company as well as the knowledge that was shared.

It turned out to be an unforgettable trip. The atmosphere and vision of the place was exciting. A place worth visiting again.

Excellent!

It was awesome! The guide was very kind and the informations shared was very rich in terms of culture! I really recommend.
