Truly wonderful
Jul 2021 • Couples
I had originally booked a tour at the beginning of my week in Cusco, but due to an email server issue my tour wound up being cancelled. I contacted the owner and she immediately went into problem solving mode. She sent me a refund and then scheduled a new tour for us with Liz. It was amazing - seriously. Liz knew so much of the history and culture of Cusco. She obviously had great relationships with each and every vendor; they all recognized her and greeter her with a big smile. The food was amazing, she knew all of the great hidden spots. They were very accommodating to my vegetarian life and even provided almond milk to substitute with my coffee. I truly cannot say enough good things. If you’re on the fence about this tour, do it. I promise you won’t regret it.

Dulce de leche churros and picarones - ‘nuff said.

Loved this tour! Great balance of food/drink and sweet/savory. We went around
Cusco and had full portions and Kacey was our guide. She was super friendly and informative! This is how we experienced the less tourist-y food and got to meet and learn about the locals that prepare the food too! You won’t be disappointed!

Fun and Informative
Feb 2020
I did this tour with Kacey and had a blast. Having done many food tours I was impressed at how much food we actually sampled on this one, we got full portions at every stop, not little bites. Additionally, the tour does a great job of combining novel food that you may not have tried before with vendors who have interesting stories or a strong history in the city. I felt like I came away knowing much more not just about the cuisine but about the city as well. Great way to spend an evening.

All Around Amazing!
Feb 2020 • Friends
I can’t say enough about this tour, it was fantastic from beginning to end. The guides (K and L) met us in a common square to start the tour on foot. The tour on foot took us around the Center of town sampling a number of local foods from street and market vendors. We learned about the city, the culture in Cusco and the beautiful foods available (and foods that would have been intimidating to try as travellers on our own). We were dropped off on foot back at the meeting location with full stomachs and a new knowledge and appreciation for the food of Cusco.

Do this tour!
Nov 2019 • Solo
I was a last minute addition and found Kasey and Corinne to be extremely accommodating. Like all good food tours, in addition to delicious local food came history and expert tips to avoid overly touristy haunts. Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Cusco who wants a local experience in a tourist town.

Unique food experience
Oct 2019
My husband and I really enjoyed this walking tour. Corrine was our guide and she was so informative and prepared. We learned so much about the food history in the city and wished we would have been able to take this tour a few days earlier so we could go back to a few of the locations. Pace yourself, it is a lot of food! They have take away bags ;-)
