My only complaint was that the instructor seemed a bit shy, at least at the beginning of the class going to the market and in the 10-15 minutes that he set up the kitchen when we arrived back, but I think that was in order for the group to develop a good chemistry among us and really enjoy ourselves, the sangria also helped haha. My suggestion would be to perhaps implement more historical facts about Spain and paella during these moments? Otherwise, the instructor was very knowledgeable and kind, cracking jokes and spending time to know us for the cooking and eating part of the class. Chef Gabriel was really cool and he knows how to make a kickass paella, easily the best one I have ever eaten ( and I work as a chef so I can be a critic at times!)! I really enjoyed this experience and it was easily worth the price of 130 euro for 2. Highly recommend!

The Guide was amazing! The tour was super interesting, the food and wine was diverse and tasty as can be. Don't miss out on the Flamenco show!!!

Very enjoyable evening with Paulina and a nice group of people. Great selection of food and drinks. Highly recommended.

That was a great experience! The host was lovely and joyful! Definitely reccomended!

Great way to experience the city on our first day.
