Loved this so much! I have been to Mexico before and loved the Tacos there. I didn't think that it would be possible to get them done that well when being selfmade, but my expectations were well overexceeded. It was super delicious and the chef build the perfect atmosphere. She was super fun and friendly and was very attentive by guiding us through the cooking process. Can highly recommend.

This was my first Airbnb experience and it was great! Cosy, full of fun and learning new things, and I loved that we managed to create tacos from scratch — it all turned out really good with Graciela's explanations and tips. Also, I loved the cultural information about tacos, Mexican cooking, and how they all connect. Fully recommend doing this with friends and/or family!
