    129 USD por persona y peor experiencia en clase de cocina. Elegimos este tour por la cantidad de platos a preparar y el tiempo 5 horas ofrecido, perdimos 1,5 horas recorriendo un vecindario, cuando llegamos al lugar era una mesa donde mezclamos ingredientes fríos (no había una cocina) no preparamos Lomo saltado según la descripción. A penas estuvimos 1 hora y media entre preparación y comer. No había un chef, la terminación de los platos no era profesional. Ante el reclamo, ofrecieron devolver el 50% ahora nos enteramos que con suerte es el 30% de la devolución que aún no ocurre

    Great Excursion. Guide was very informative . visit to Mercado I market was fantastic. You get a great feel for the are, the country, culture, and people. Saw fruits and veggies I had never seen before. We were there on a big market day where the main outdoor market was open. Otherwise only the inside market is open. The displays at the market were lovely. Cooking class was fun. Could have been a little more hands on. Someone demonstrates with explanation the pisco sour and 3 food dishes. The chefs don't speak English but our guide interpreted. A day in Lima well spent. The food was great, fresh, and plentiful.
