- Do we eat a lot during this tour? Does it constitute a meal?
Definitely! We recommend not eating anything else other than a light breakfast before this food tour.
- Do I have to book in advance?
We recommend to book at least 1 week in advance, but we accept bookings up to 6 hours before the tour starts.
- I’m a solo traveller. Can I book a tour too?
Yes, you can! Participating in our Barranco Food Tour will give you the opportunity to meet other travellers passionate about gastronomy. Do not be afraid to book, even if you are alone, we could have other reservations for that same day so you can share the experience with other foodies.
Thanks Luis, we hardly had such a great food tour anywhere in the world. Not only food, but also lots of information about Lima and Peru. We can highly recommend this! Entertaining, not too long running tracks and also visits to the kitchen. Top. Thank you.
I was lucky enough to have a one-on-one tour with Pia and it was amazing! It was the highlight of my time in Lima and I raved about it to every other tourist I met. If you love food and are an adventurous eater, TRY IT! Every single dish is worth it :)
Did together with 2 other German participants this food tour and was totally thrilled! This is the perfect introduction to Peruvian cuisine, whose enormous variety is truly remarkable. Garnished with plenty of information from our guide Alberto, who was a great guide, the 4 hours passed by in a flash. That absolutely makes you want more Peru!
Pia was an outstanding guide! We enjoyed hearing more about the culture and what food meant to her. She explained in great detail all the different types of foods we tried. I think the best part was there were only two of us with her on the tour so the entire experience was elevated by getting to know her personally and experience the city together.
