Chef Izzi was a gracious and accommodating host, and Mama was a sweetheart! The good we prepared was amazing and I loved learning about the history of the food and culture. It's great to get a behind-the-scenes look at life in the Cabo neighborhoods. Highly recommend for a day of fun and food!

My husband and I always try to experience local culture on our trips, and I'm so glad we found this tour! We loved experiencing the markets and helping choose the seafood, meat and produce that went into the dishes we made. Nothing beats margaritas made from fresh squeezed lime juice! Everything was delicious, the company was wonderful and the tour operators are so fun and knowledgeable! Couldn't have asked for a better day!

This is a must do activity when in Cabo. Issy makes the experience amazing and adds some education along the way. You get to actually cook in his house and see how a real chef does it. Can’t wait to be back.
