Where you'll be

We will be in the kitchen of our family restaurant, which meant a lot to us. in the historic center of Cartagena, a kitchen with music, air conditioning, and we have decorated with photos of all the people who have visited us as a way to remember our friends all over the world. In this kitchen, not only is cooking, we also dance once when (our chefs also know how to dance a lot!)

This was such a highlight in Cartagena. Laura was our main instructor. She was so sweet and funny. There was a really friendly atmosphere since it's such a small group. I learned sooo much and can't wait to go home and recreate the dishes. Come hungry because there is a LOT of food. Thank you, Laura and friends!

Laura was very friendly and seemed very passionate about her craft. The class was very intimate and interactive - Laura had lots of stories to tell while we were cooking. The whole experience was so much fun and I would definitely recommend taking this class if you love Colombian food!

Friendly team. Immersive and fun experience. However, note that this is not as hands-on as other cooking courses. Most of the food will be prepared for you.

We really enjoyed this class. There were a total of 8 guests, and that was a little crowded in the kitchen, but it was great as far as the interactions and the experience. Laura provided a link to all the recipes and instructions, and I will definitely be trying some of these items at home. All in all it was very worthwhile and a fun way to spend the afternoon and evening, and the food was delicious!

The cooking class was awesome! My husband and I attended and really enjoyed the class and both cooks. They were so friendly and very sweet. They made sure everyone was involved and they gave the history of the dishes we cooked. Everything went so well. It was fun and so was the dancing. My husband even danced! This was a great experience in a lovely restaurant. The food turned out amazing too.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my experience! Everyone at RealExperience was super accommodating and communicative both before and during the experience. The class was hands on and the food was delicious. I’ve never gotten to see a head chef do their thing, and Nelcy had so much knowledge she shared. And to top it off we got to dance and laugh and just have a purely good time. So grateful to RealExperience for hosting me. This is not an experience to miss!
