Great way to see the markets and try all the tasty foods!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Corrine started the tours when she moved here a few years back and is a wonderful guide! She knows a ton about the city and culture and more importantly about the people and families that she takes you to see - you can tell she’s just in love with it all! Great food and great learning! We did this after being in the city for about 20 hours with no problems.

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour. We were shown around the market busy with locals and good explanation of some local customs, plus a few extra stops to sample the best local produce.
Bonus was the June festival dancing and artworks on at the time

An AWESOME experience!
May 2019 • Family
The food tour with Corinne was one of the highlights of our amazing trip to Peru. She was such a joy to spend the morning with, showing us areas of Cusco and new foods that we wouldn’t have been able to discover without guidance. She also had a wealth of knowledge when it came to the history and culture of the area. All along the way, she was able to engage and entertain our persnickety four year old with her humor and enthusiasm! We highly recommend taking one of the Curious Monkey tours!

Thank you so much. It was such a great time and I enjoyed showing Elise ("the repollito squisher") lots of new foods. Look out you have a little foodie on your hands. Loved spending the morning with such a fun and adventurous family !!

Come hungry!!!
Thrilled to have done this food tour in Cuzco. Was concerned about food safety and was impressed by the steps they took to be safe - including bringing their own dishes, cups, and hand wipes / sanitizer.
The morning tour (led by Casey) included stops for tamales, local beverages, juices, and the best pork I’ve ever had + more. The vendors were super nice and really took pride in their products (as exhibited by the massive lines at their stands). It’s expensive by local standards but well worth the cost to experience local specialties.

Thank you for joining us and happy to hear you enjoyed the tour. Our magic backpack with all the dishes (trying to do our part to reduce plastic waste) as well as the quality and cleanliness of our caseras is very important to us.

A window into Cuzco Market
Dec 2018 • Family
We had a great tour of Cuzco street food - our guides had a wealth of information about some of the best spots in the city - from fresh smoothies, tamales, to more unusual tastes like the cow foot jello, to the treat of local handicraft coffee. It was such a treat spending time with them, and asking them questions about the history of the dishes and the people who make them. Would highly recommend to any visitor!

Great tour filled with unique eats
Nov 2018 • Couples
We signed up as a party of 6 and were lucky enough to have Corrine and Casey lead us around on a private tour. They were both very knowledgeable about the local food of Cusco - we even had some history lessons intermixed with all the food talks! I appreciated the fact that we went to some of the oldest places in the market (things I would have never tried on my own). We walked through the very local fruits/veggies/chicken shops following the market which was my favorite part. I tried three new fruits, and now I'm wondering how I'll find each of them in the states :)
