What To Expect
Africa and the Amerindian Taínos.
We invite you and your group to discover the magic of our "cocina criolla” by spicing up your day during this exciting culinary experience where you will taste the rich flavors of Puerto Rican Cuisine.
Our meeting point will be the heart of our Old San Juan. Here, we will get acquainted with a little bit of our history and familiarize with important details of our Puerto Rican culture. Your guide will walk you through important historical sites like the San Juan Gate, the Princess Pathway, the Roots Fountain, Museum of Doña Fela, the Rogativa statue, Plaza de Armas, San Juan Cathedral and so much more.
Meanwhile we will also pass through the unique shopping district these ancient streets provide where our guest will be able to take a glance at our local products like Puerto Rican coffee, arts and crafts, jams and delicious spices.
Next? The highlight of the tour: The Mofongo and Mojito culinary demo & dining experience. You can't come to Puerto Rico and not try our Mofongo. This is why we have chosen a beautiful local restaurant that has a unique colonial atmosphere to give you the time to appreciate our Latin flavors. Their staff will welcome you with unique Puerto Rican hors d'oeuvres and their renowned chef will demonstrate how to create the famous mofongo. The mofongo it's a must-try for first-time visitors who want to claim to have sampled the local fare and for locals it is just something to keep repeating at any craving time. Mofongo is a mashed mound of plantains into which a combination of meat, or vegetables is added. Become a chef for a day and find out how this incredible Puerto Rican meal is made, then, at the end, enjoy the fruits of your own delicious creation!

Mixology and Salsa class
This was so great! Our guide was Lola. We started our experience with a visit to a local bar where we learned a bit more about drinks and bars in the area. The mixology class itself included us making 2 different cocktails and then getting a surprise 3rd. The dance lesson was very fun. As someone who sometimes struggles to learn dances, I was amazed that I was not only able to learn the salsa but able to dance to it in other situations during the trip. Additionally, we were celebrating my friend's birthday and the guide, dance instructor, and chef surprised us with a cake for our friend. Overall one of the best tours/experiences I've had on a trip.
Fun with the Chefs and Francis
Francis and the two Chefs were great. Never realized how easy it was to make Mojito + Mofongo. And it was very, very fun......
A must for anyone who loves food!
The tour started off with a walk around Old San Juan, our tour guid we incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with ample opportunities for pictures. So after the walking tour is over get ready for some of the best food around. We were taken into a private dining area where the chef provided us with history of Puerto Rico’s rum history. We learned how to make a Mojito and used local rum Don Q which was delicious. Then on the the food, a starter, salad and then mofungo (you have to try it) and ending it all with desert. The chef was very nice and even allowed people on our tour to take photos of all the recipes for each dish she made for us that day. This group offers other tours of the area, but I would do it again just to eat the food. Give them your business if your in town, you will not be disappointed.
Interesting and Informative Excursion
We took this excursion through Holland America in what they called "History and Cuisine of San Juan on Foot." Our guide was Eddy who was a very likable and informative guide. We did walk a fair amount over curbs and cobblestones. Lunch included a lesson on how to make mojitos and mofongo. We ate what we prepared. Carmen, a New York transplant, did a wonderful job of mofongo making. Very tasty.
This trip is well worth the time and effort to ferret out. You'll like Eddy.
Arranged off the Norwegian Encore, this was a great excursion. We made our own mohitos and mofongo for dinner then went on a walking tour of Old San Juan. Having never been to Puerto Rico before this was a great activity for us to do.
