We went on the Barranco food tour and we loved it so much!!! All the food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the ceviche and the lomo Saltado. We also loved the coffee and chocolate stops and bought some items to bring home. Cristina gave us a great history of the country and explained how integral food was to the culture. It was a really excellent activity and we will definitely recommend to others!
On our last day in Peru, our group of 5 decided to treat ourselves to a Peruvian food tour. Our guide, Johanna, was amazing. She had vast knowledge of the food, the people, the history and much more. We had a blast!! It was a great way to spend the last day. We visited Barranco, met interesting vendors, tasted amazing food and learned about the culture. We were pleasantly surprised of the entire experience. On top of it, my booking this tour, we helped those in need (they are associated with providing food to kids' in need). Thank you for this awesome experience.
This tour is more than just a tasting. It will fill you up with food, culture, information and love. All the businesses supported have a mission to help Perú and Peruvians. You watch things prepared, learn about their history and influence and get briefed on the Barranco neighborhood while you’re at it. Definitely come hungry and wear your walking shoes! Also. The best Pisco sour I have had in Perú!
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip guided by Nathaly. Only three of us on the walk, we learned about Peruvian produced coffee and chocolate, was shown how to make Ceviche, Cantonese style beef and Pisco sour, and lots more. All this while walking through the Baranco district and learning about the area. FinIshed with gelato. Ate so much we didn’t need dinner!
