Reviewer: JJJ
This was such a fantastic tour almost private as only 5 persons in the group (4 are from one family plus myself). Two chef's are pretty funny and experienced which made entire cooking class so relaxing instead of being pressured). We cooked 3 delicious courses for the lunch, appetizer (shrimp on Mexican traditional corn bread with Salsa spicy dipping sauce), entree (yammy fish fallet) and desert. Tour guy Allen (if I remember his name correctly) is very patient and kind. Highly recommend this excursion to everyone!

Had such a fun time with this excursion. It was educational and great to see the "non-touristy" parts of the area. We had a wonderful guide that shared a lot of great info and we learned some wonderful facts. The cooking class MADE the whole experience. I think we spent the while time laughing and learning and having a great time (seriously so much fun). It was also a nice break from being in the sun. I would do it again just for the cooking class!!

We have done every type of excursion you can think of from beach breaks to parasailing but this was by far one of our best excursions ever. We have cruised for years but I recently became a travel agent who specializes in cruises and I wanted to do something different then a beach break so I could give my clients other options. This is it! I have already booked a party of 4 for this excursion. From the moment we arrived at the storefront for check-in to the moment we got out of the van at the end the employees were professional and knowledgeable and they truly enjoyed their job! The chef and his sous chefs' were very knowledgeable and made the entire experience beyond FUN!!!

We did this and had the time of our life. We were the only two on the tour so the Chef was at our table showing us everything. We made our desert, a shrimp appetizer.and a baked fish plate. Learned a lot and laughed a lot.( The 2 large pina coladas that were include made for a fun time ).Would highly recommend this excursion.

Reviewer: Angela Gittens
We had a group of 17 people and we all had a blast! The tequila tasting and cooking class were the best part. The only criticism we all had was there needed to be more ventilation because it gets really hot as you are cooking. The chef and his team were awesome and the food was FABULOUS!
