“More than a Tour or Cooking Lessons... It was a great experience!” We went to Puerto Varas with my wife, and we were looking to do something different this time. It was not our first time there, and we already knew the most tourist places in the area. After evaluated many options we decided to book this tour, and it was the best decision! We had an incredible experience all day long. It was a very sunny day and we met Andres (chef and manager) in the morning, we went to the local market to pick up several seafood ingredients, such as fish, mussels, oysters, among others, and then we went to a local farm to pick up some fresh vegetables. After touring this and other places, we went to Andrés 's place and he teached us how to cook amazing dishes. He is very friendly and we had a very good time during all the class... and of course, the best part was eating! It was delicious! I highly recomend this experience if you travel to Puerto Varas or other close areas. You will not forget about that day!
