I love going on food tours when I travel to different countries. It's the best way of learning about ones culture. Of course, I love food as well! The tour I had was Lorenza was definitely the best food tour I ever had. We tried different foods, drank different drinks and met awesome people. I would have to say this is the first time I had a food tour that I had to say 'no more food' I was so full!! The tour was personalized and a great adventure. Lorenza's knowledge was unparalleled.
We liked walking around and learning from Fio about more of the real Lima beyond Miraflores or Barranco. We appreciated the diversity in what we stopped for: a few local places in addition to the street food, quick stop at Iglesia de San Francisco and the nearby stuffed churros (one of our favorite stops).
Booked this food tour for our 2nd night in Lima...and so glad we did! Gonzalo was our guide and he was incredibly informative and friendly and took us to eat the most delicious dishes around the neighborhood...we ate SO. MUCH. FOOD...and I couldn't stop because it was all so good. Between dishes, Gonzalo walked us through the streets while sharing many stories about the history of Lima. I highly recommend this trip.
The tour in downtown Lima was great. The food was delicious, authentic and one could feel like a real local while discovering the cultural and historical attractives of the city. Food wise we both particularly liked the yuca reyena and the artisanal beers. Also our guide Gonzalo was fantastic : very knowledgeable and friendly! Highly recommend this walking food tour and Exquisito Peru
I would do it again, Gonzalo was super nice, kind, and very educated on his history! He answered all our questions with ease and a constant smile, such good vibes, SO glad I got to take the tour!!!
This tour gave us everything - historical buildings and churches of Lima, a bit of history, pub food, street food, local drinks. Pick up and return to our hotel was a bonus. Alberto wasfriendlh, helpful, fun, well informed, engaging, happy to go at our pace and happy to detour when we saw an interesting building! The churros were a highlight! Highly recommend this tour.
If you love food and are a little bit adventurous, I would highly recommend this tour. It was educational, lively and gave great insight into Peruvian food. The tour guide was well informed and had a good sense of humour. The tour group is small so there is ample opportunity to ask questions. I would highly recommend.
