I must admit we thoroughly enjoyed both the cooking and city tour experience.
Our tour guide Laura was a great teacher and he knew a lot about paella. We walked through the market and bought fresh ingredients and then walked to the kitchen.

It was a fun experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a hands on experience. We made paella as a group, learned to make Sangria, had tapas and met some great people.
