But if you keep a low profile, you should be more than fine! We know the area quite well and after attending 2000+ guests, we have never had any problem.
With our tour, extremely unlikely. All the stops are carefully vetted by our team and we run regular checks to make sure they maintain the same standards, both in terms of quality of the food as well as hygiene.

I am Canadian and I live in Quebec. I have a BA in International Studies and Languages. After having traveled the world, I decided to specialize in community and solidarity tourism. It is during an international cooperation trip that I did in 2013 that I fell in love with Peru.
I have lived for several years in the capital where I developed a friendship with Jessy Caiado, another expat in Lima. Together we embark on that great adventure that is Exquisito Peru. Our mission is to make you discover how incredible Peruvian gastronomy is through authentic culinary experiences.
We met RESPONS in our beginnings in 2018 and we loved their commitment as well as the shared values, since developing a sustainable and responsible tourism is a pillar of our activities. To reinforce our social commitment, we have established the Impact Eat Foundation in Canada in 2020, to support small producers in Peru thanks to sustainable agrotourism activity.
