We have been on many tours in Europe and must say that Birgit was the most enthusiastic, engaging and welcoming guide we have ever met. She is proud and endearing representative of Majorca and we would highly recommend visiting that lovely island in Birgit’s company.

Really fun evening. Vanessa was very friendly and included all of us in the cooking activities. The food was really tasty and there was plenty of wine for us to enjoy during the evening. Would highly recommend as a group activity with friends

It was a joy to make all of these dishes with the chef who was very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining everyone and keeping everyone included.

Very friendly group. Everyone had fun just interacting and learning.
