Fantastic tour. Pablo is so knowledgable about the culture, history and food in Peru. The coffee place that is the starting point is world class. Plenty of food tasters, you certainly won't need lunch afterwards. Great way to get to see Lima city centre and experience the food if you are in Lima for a short time. Would highly recommend!!

We had the chance to experience the Flavors trending tour and the traditional one. Both were great and enjoyable experiences, different and complementary. Experiences that made our stay in Lima even more pleasant. We were amazed by the food diversity and quality. It wouldn’t be the same if discovered by ourselves thanks to the stories shared. Pablo and Pablito offered a great customer service. Pablito was really professional, dedicated and shared nice stories and knowledge about his town. All in all, we were really satisfied and happy about our tours and won’t hesitate to highly recommend for any visits in Lima.
