Best food tour ever!
Honestly the BEST food tour I have ever been on. They give you very big portions and you will leave the tour full. I love how they integrated art and local history into the tour as well. Highly recommend!

A really great food tour
Nov 2021
This tour was great -- our guide, Nathaly, was quite knowledgeable about food generally and in particular about Peruvian food and culture. The different stops on the tour were all interesting, and complemented one another very well. We sampled unique Peruvian fruits, saw how traditional Peruvian ceviche is made, tried a beef dish made in the "chifa" (Chinese-Peruvian) style, had artisanal Peruvian coffee, Peruvian empanadas, learned how to make (and drink) Pisco sours, and had gelato with Peruvian fruit flavors. Highly recommended!

Peruvian food tour was excellent as I learned about Peruvian culture and food and the city of Liam all at the same time
We covered several different restaurants and ate food from all different courses of the day during this for our tour. It was excellent to have the opportunity to taste Peruvian food that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do the experience was great the tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly not only about Peruvian food but about local culture and her way around the city of Lima I would recommend this trip to anybody interested in learning about Peruvian food and culture

Excellent experience, exactly as advertised
This tour went exactly as advertised, including timely transportation to and from our hotel. We started with learning about the fruits and vegetables grown in Peru, and proceeded to taste the many wonderful different ways those ingredients could be prepared and presented in pastries, soups, ceviches, lomo saltado, and of course the Pisco Sour.

Ximena was an informative tour guide, knowledgeable in all things Peru. If you’re fortunate enough to have her as your guide, you’re most fortunate.

Absolutely wonderful
Oct 2021 • Couples
I can’t speak highly enough about this tour. Ali exceeded all expectations. Being able to walk around and learn about all the history of the city was wonderful and along the way to stop in to multiple restaurants and markers to learn how things are made or grown and then try them. We would have never been able to get into all the places as quickly as we did or know the special items to order without Ali. We moved along seamlessly through the tour, not too fast and yet I never felt bored. She even recommended places for after our tour to eat or shop and she even helped us exchange money. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone new or old to the city. It really was wonderful.

Historical Food Tour

I got to have a private tour with a great person Johanna.
Johanna made a point to inform me of the history of not only the food but the buildings. I found the history as flavorful as the food.

Fue una experiencia increíble, como si estuvieras visitando a un amigo local. Todos los platos estaban deliciosos y los lugares mágicos. Vale más de lo que pagas.

Foodtastic - Awesome guide!
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had the Peruvian Food Tour through Barranco with Ximena and it was amazing and very informative! We learned a lot about Peruvian food, how to prepare ceviche and pisco sour and we took a stroll through artsy barranco. Our guide Ximena was very knowlegeable and kind and we were free to ask anything. Through the conversation with her we learned a lot about Peruvian Culture and the current situation during pandemic, so that the tour really helped us understanding peruvian people.
We can definetely recommend it!

Today's tour was wonderful. John met us early and was so incredibly personable and informative. In addition to showing us delicious food and drink, he is knowledgeable about history, politics and nature. We loved how he could discuss so many diverse topics in between delicious bites! John is fun, smart and loves his city and country.

Our visits to each of the stops were delicious and unique. We loved everything about this tour! Please book this excursion and cross your fingers that you get John!
