This tour was such an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend half a day in Havana. Our group of five had a really personalized experience that combined a lot of information about how folks in Havana live and a primer on Cuban culinary staples and home cooking techniques. Cooking and sharing a meal together with lots of time to just sit and talk with the guides felt more like a cultural exchange than a traditional guided tour. We never felt rushed or talked at. La Gorgola was a cozy, pretty hostel that felt like a friend's home. The price was extremely reasonable for the amount of time and effort as well as the meal we had, which was delicious and generous, including plantains two ways, vegetable soup, yuca, rice and beans, pork, dessert and coffee. We were also offered cocktails. We'd definitely recommend this tour.
This was a fabulous class! I learned more about Cuban cooking. The guide,Jorge, and the instructor, Tina, were so friendly and informative. The food came out delicious. It was quite a feast! Great value for the money! Highly recommend it!
Jorge and Tina were amazing! Not only was it an amazing opportunity to learn about Cuban cuisine and culture, our guides made us feel that we we amongst friends. I would highly recommend this opportunity.
It was fun cooking a meal in Cuba, but my favorite part was the interactions and knowledge gained talking before, during and after the meal.
