    Wow- great market experience and cooking class!
    Emily_Y, Mar 2023
    Excellent tour- loved the market experience, our guide Mario, and wonderful Chef Daniel at the restaurant. The offer to take photos for us throughout the tour and then email them to us by the tour company was also really nice and allowed us to just enjoy the experience.

    Saw first the different housing areas of the working and middle class in the mountains, this was very interesting as Beto and Jose, our guides explain to us about taxes, health care and other aspects of the Mexican live. When at the market I enjoyed visiting where the locals shop, viewing all the fresh ingredients they use for their cooking and learning about different peppers and why the chicken is yellow! At the restaurant, we prepared guacamole, salsas, and chicken and beef fajitas - delicious!! Great cultural experience for everyone This was an excellent addition to my trip!

    What a wonderful day we got to spend at the market and touring the town. We learned so much about Acapulco, the government, its history and so much more. They really went the extra mile. Definitely a 10 out of 10. Book it. It is worth your time and money.

    It was wonderful, though I already knew how to prepare all that was taught. I did learn a few details, though, so that was nice. I love the idea of the tasting tour that you brought up. In all, a wonderful experience. I highly recommend!!!
