    We signed up for this tour when we couldn't find a cooking class that worked for the time we had available. I'm so happy we did because it turned out to be super informative. I went with my two adult daughters and loved Abby's energy, knowledge and direction. It was great to taste all the local flavors and eat at the local spots in addition to learning about the history of the food we were trying. The street tacos, fresh juices and popsicles were our favorites! Touring the murals exposed the artistic side of Playa as well as the history of how Playa developed over time. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in fantastic food, local insight and history.

    Koko took us to places we would never have tried. The food was wonderful and he challenged us to be adventurous so we tried new foods and lived them. His knowledge of the area was great. Because of Koko we will go back to those locations.

    A food tour on your first day or two is a must if you want to eat delicious authentic Mexican food while in Playa. Abbey was a wonderful tour guide and taught us so much about the local culture and history as well.
