It was a fun tour, where you are offered local dishes at a number of locations. There is also something told about the dishes and history, eg the chocolate and coffee special store where products from local farmers are used. A visit to the market was interesting to taste some very regional fruits. Demonstrating the preparation of the ceviche, pisco sour and lomo saltado is also relaxing and educational. We had a good English speaking guide with Desiree.
