Our Peru trip was physically challenging and action-packed, and I am so glad that I booked this one relaxing activity to close out the vacation! Our instructor was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We really enjoyed learning more about Peruvian culture, especially in regards to cacao and chocolate-making. You might think that a 2 hour workshop on chocolate could get boring, but definitely not. It was chill but fun.

The workshop was great, you learn a lot about the growth of the cacao plant, the process of chocolate making and you are able to make truffles and filled chocolate for yourself. I really enjoyed this workshop, definitely something to try while you are in Cusco

Our teacher Gabriel was really funny and gave us a great experience. We learned a lot and got a lot of chocolates to take home. The teaching was private, which was nice

Guido was amazing! It was obvious how much he loved his job and sharing his chocolate knowledge. We really enjoyed the interactive component to the workshop!

Great fun and loads laughs and very interesting and informative
