Iwayan Kar was simply an amazing guide. He was thoughtful and extremely kind. He is a real connoisseur of his island, and he loves to share his knowledge with his guests. He answered every single question with had about his culture with patience and joy. His family welcomed us in their home, cooked and ate with us. We are really thankful for his ospitality. We HIGHLY recommend him and this tour!

The teachers were really great and the pacing was good. You got to make two appetizers, eat it, and then make three more dishes (so you aren’t starving for hours before the food is ready). The place is relatively new so the facilities are pretty nice. Instead of a market tour, we picked some of our own ingredients in the garden. Highly recommend this tour.

I’d highly recommend this. From start to finish we enjoyed every bit of it. The staff were amazing and we got to pick some vegetables from their own farm to cook that day. The food was so good and they gave us some recipe booklets to take home after. They also catered to vegetarians!

The class was excellent. I was expecting to be picked up at 3pm -but on the day at 2.10pm I was told to be ready at 2.20pm. That was inconvenient. Please have better communication about pick up time.

We had a great time making vegetarian dishes, super delicious!
