Overall, an incredible experience! A range of experiences and not just with food; I learnt so much about the country’s history, culture and diverse regions. As a solo traveller I felt comfortable and part of the group.

The Food trip to Mexico was excellent. We had fun, learned a lot about the culture and ate bunches of tasty food. The home cooked meal in Puebla was probably the best Mexican food I have eaten--quite the highlight!
