      Don’t skip this tour in Antigua
      A wonderful way to get a figurative and literal taste of local culture. Rebecca knows top local chefs and the best street food vendors to give you a cross section of new and traditional Guatemalan cuisine. Supporting local businesses and engaging with the culture are all good reasons to sign up. If you just want to eat well and be treated generously, you’ll get that too. We brought along our 6 & 8 year old boys and Rebecca found a way to engage them in local food and drink as she did 2 adults. She was also a wonderful resource for other things to inAntigua and in the other towns we will be visiting on our trip. Wish we had time to take a cooking class too. Don’t miss this tour when you come to Antigua.

      Great cooking class in Antigua
      We were messaged by Rebeca via WhatsApp a few days before our class, which was nice because we could ask any questions we had. On the day of our class, we met Xoshil and Betsi. Xoshil helped to translate to English and Betsi was the one showing us how to cook. We had the tamales cooking class. We cooked Tamalitos de Chipilin and Tamalitos de Cambray as well as two different salsas to go with them. We were shown what to do but also learned about the ingredients and their significance to the Mayan culture. It was fun but also interesting and a great way to learn more about the indigenous culture. After we were done cooking, we sat down and enjoyed everything we'd made. It was all delicious! Overall we really enjoyed our experience and can't wait to visit Antigua again and do another class or tour with Kukul Tales. Gracias!!

      Nice Antigua's experience
      It was a great experience to make a Pepian by ourself. Plus, the staff was really nice with us. I was a little bit clumsy while cooking but in the end it was a very funny way to create memories !

      Authentic Experience w/ Fantastic Hosts!
      This cooking class was excellent! It was a quick, fun way to spend a couple of hours of the afternoon, learning an authentic Mayan recipe directly from the family who has crafted this recipe over the years. This class would be great for kids, because there are lots of hands-on opportunities to use Mayan and modern cooking tools. The three ladies who assisted me in the class were wonderful - all had a great sense of humor and ability to make the recipe fun and easy for me to recreate.

      Great experience in Antigua
      We enjoyed our cooking class so much!! We followed the cooking instructions as we talked with the instructors and also learned a lot about Mayan and Guatemalan culture. The atmosphere is friendly and encouraging despite the different (fresh) ingredients and ways of preparing them. Everything came out delicious and we could enjoy the food at a beautiful table set on a courtyard by a working fountain. We did not want to leave. :) Important to note that we also got tips to replicate the meal at home, even if we don't have the special stone and grill they use to teach us.

      My husband had a blast!
      We usually do food tours but this was highly recommended by a friend and my husband was skeptical. Shocker! He had a blast! Maybe it was the amazing team, Silvia and Sanjel (spelling is way off). I like experimenting with food… I have a whole new pallet of ingredients and all of them are super healthy while being tasty. You will not be disappointed!

    I had an amazing time! I purchased two activities. The first involved making my own chocolate bars and a chocolate tasting. The second involved making a traditional ceremonial drink from scratch. I highly recommend the experience!
