Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 3,771 reviews

Class began with a walk to the market to shop for ingredients with the instructor. He is extremely knowledgeable about foods and shared that knowledge easily. Upon returning to the school, we prepared 4 dishes by working on prep and cooking for each item under the chef’s guidance. Class ended with a full meal served in the kitchen.

If you want to let yourself drift and experience the city in a way you don't usually do, this land, air and water event is just the thing for you. She made us very happy.

This performance was outstanding. I think, this is one of our best experiences in Barcelona. Hats off to the artists who were all in their elements.
