Overall this was a very fun excursion! We loved the visit to the market to buy everything fresh. Also fun to learn a few techniques. This was the first time we had made a rojo sauce as well as handmade corn tortillas (using dough bought from market) The meal was super filling, yet also a bit basic or bland for our personal preference. Knowing there were only a few of us in the tour I had hoped for a bit more personalization in the meal. For example, We asked if we could learn to make a mole sauce but ended up just buying one from the market. We also said we liked spicy food, but no spice was added. Finally we had one in the party that is mostly vegetarian and we asked for some grilled veggies to be included, but that didn’t happen either. Again this is fun and engaging but I would recommend they personalize it a bit more

I had to sit out the Cancun trip, so I booked this experience as a birthday surprise for a friend celebrating her 40th. She LOVED it. She said she got to experience the location like never before and that cooking the recipes she learned will be a terrific souvenir once she's back in colder climes. Thanks to Cayetano for helping me pull off this surprise for her.

If you love people, the Mexican culture and food, this will be a great day for you! I felt like I was met by a great friend, who welcomed me to his life, thru cooking and eating. We shopped for food, prepared the food and all sat, like family, and ate. I tried new foods, such as pork belly and crickets and enjoyed the company, conversation and laughs with others on the tour.

Really enjoyed this experience. As we are older, it was sometimes hard to understand pir host when in the market and in van. Fun shopping and making our own foods.

This was a great experience! Cayetano was personable, professional and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated his patronage of local merchants in Market 23, as well as having an opportunity to meet people there and shop for teas and spices to take home. Our cooking class at La Parilla was awesome! Meeting and cooking with others who also signed up for the tour was wonderful and our meal DELICIOUS!! All of the staff I interacted with were warm, kind, knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Cayetano for an amazing experience!!
