We have loved this excursion because you see towns and places that if you did not go with an expert guide we would not know it, but I highlight the guide who has known how to guide us at all times, explain everything properly, with many details and with great enthusiasm and joy, he Note that he enjoys what he does. Thank you very much with all my heart

Riccardo was an attentive host who shared a lot of knowledge and gave us some practical cooking tips. The evening was very entertaining and we laughed a lot. The recipes were printed out as flyers to cook afterwards. The dishes were not complicated and are excellent for your own kitchen. Overall an experience and highly recommended!

We had a wonderful cooking experience! Everything was organized but also felt comfortable. Five dishes came out amazing, including our main dish, Paella. Would highly recommend skipping a restaurant and cooking as an option for dinner one night.

Es war eine wirkliche schöne Tour! Unsere Führerin Birgit hat uns viele schöne Ecken der Insel gezeigt und viele tolle Geschichten erzählt. Wir würden die Tour jederzeit wieder machen!

Incredibly tasty. Great cooking class with Luis, we had a lot of fun and learned a lot about Spanish cuisine.
