Quite al disappointing, there was very little food tasting, only one savoury one, a basic empanada. Then a queso helado and a bit of fruit. We gave the guide 35 sol each at the beginning of the tour. Pretty sure he didn't use it all and l didnt get any money back

This tour was a great way to spend our last day in Arequipa. Paolo was so knowledgeable about both Peruvian food and history. He shared his extensive knowledge about the significance of the food and a lot of interesting facts. A fun memorable morning with good food. Highly recommended
