What people are saying about Cooking Classes in Antigua
Authentic Guatemalan Cooking Class in Antigua"This was my favorite cooking class I’ve ever took. Especially the driver was the icing on the cake with his sense of humor. I would totally do it all over again. I haven’t had that much of a good time in a long time, left me feeling great to be able to connect with such great people and have a great cooking experience. Food was great."..."
Guatemalan Cooking Class and Market Tour"Everyone is very nice, Claudia was so helpful and spoke English. The experience of the Marketplace is wonderful and great to have a local guide with you to help purchase items."..."
Cooking class/Pepian Workshop"This really was a worthwhile experience. Our tour guide/translator was wonderful communicating where to meet us. I originally did not realize it was in a neighboring community I thought it was in Antigua. But was a short $5 Uber ride away. We met our tour guide, he was wonderful and friendly. I thought we would tour the town or a market but we went directly to the home where we would make dinner. Be prepared and I do not mean this in a negative way but you are making dinner in the home of a local Guatemalan family. The poverty is staggering. They are wonderful welcoming and kind. I felt somewhat uncomfortable however that may simply be my own guilt/privledge/fear of exploiting a family. We made an absolutely wonderful meal. However again uncomfortable knowing there was a multi generational family living there and only we were sitting to eat this meal normally reserved for weddings and special occasions. I left a hefty tip as I did with all my experiences in Guatemala. Every time I was able to put money directly into the hands of the local people I did. Overall I recommend. Have the right mindset and necessary conversations with families/children prior to the experience. My kids having traveled throughout Latin America were unfazed."..."
