What people are saying about Lima

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.

The experience has been great. The guide and the chef have been lovely. We learned to make cause and lomo saltado. The experience at the market where we bought the food beforehand has been great as well. I recommend this to anyone who values the human experience and the great taste of food.

Our guide Oswaldo was great! Only thing that we were sad about was that we didn’t get to go into the archaeological site in Miraflores (which appears to be doable). Our tour ended up taking about 5 hours.

Great experience, very knowledgeable guide and wonderful places to visit

Budget friendly cooking tour in authentic Peruvian location
