Read all the description please.

This is far beyond than just a food tour. This is a joyfull and harmonizer sociological experience. Just show up, pick up your spork and attack our peruvian delicacies which have been carefully selected for you.

Let's inmerse into the commercial, crowdy, chaotic, noisy and over-whelming streets around Central Market, China Town and it's surroundings. This foodie experience is nurtured with a great storyline guiding structure of topics with a historical background that explain a lot of problems of our society.

And guess what? You will directly support local vendors and get to know the real Peru, and improve your understanding about what peruvians do in order to survive in this city of insanity.

Too good to be true? Take a glance to our long and passionate reviews on GuruWalk!

The guy is very involved in what he does. The route is very peculiar, it brings you to discover several street food places with incredibly tasty food in very short distance which you should most likely ignore. The tour is really fun, being a mixture between food tasting and history classes, not to mention some invaluable music tips! Highly recommended!

Knowledgable and funny guide. And all the food we've tried was very delicious. Highly recommend. Please Allow some extra time to get to the meetingpoint, particularly if you come from Miraflores

The best food tour that I have been to! You can not miss it, trust me. The hidden spots, the variety of dishes, and of course the attitude of our guide were unmatched 👌 if you really want to discover Lima food and culture like a local, you have to do this tour.
