These kinds of classes should last about 30 minutes and are usually included in food tours, where you can focus more on eating than cooking.

A half-day cooking tour will last longer, for about 3 to 4 hours. Usually, there is a meal of three dishes with ingredients that are half-ready for cooking. You will start with the ingredient preparation step, like cutting meat. Mincing garlic and then repeat what the chef has performed before.

A full-day cooking class will be a full exploration and last for about 5 to 6 hours. You can actually go to the local market, buy fresh ingredients, prepare the ingredients, and finally get them to cook.
