Wow this tour blew me away! I tasted so many foods and learned so much in the 5 hour traditional food tour. Time flew. The best thing I did in Mexico City for sure and the info packet you get with all of their personalised suggestions is just great! Jimena our guide was very knowledge, friendly and a joy to be around. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Mexico City!
Fantastic food tour!

The tour was excellent from beginning to end. Kyomi was an amazing guide. So knowledgeable about the culture and history of Mexico and the food we were eating. The food at each stop was delicious and the variation well thought out. And large portions - it is a lot of food! And beer/drinks! Definitely come hungry and don’t plan on being hungry for dinner
Amazing food tour …. Teenager approved.

My 15 year and I had a great time on this tour. For someone who is a picky eater, he had a blast. Our dishes ranged from traditional Oaxacan dishes, tasty slow cooked wild boar, to a nice ending with a candy shop, to name a few. The tour had foods/dishes from different parts of Mexico, including some adventurous tasting like ants and crickets. That was a fun and interesting experience.

There were 7 total people in our party. Paulina our guide was fantastic. Her explanations were great and guided us well through all our dishes.

I believe this is a must do! My teenager loved it. He wants to do future food tours in other places in the future.

Enjoyable food tour

The food tour was a great way to see Mexico City on our first day here. There was an interesting variety of food and we also spent time in the local food market - a good mix of restaurants, market stalls and a cantina. We went to places we would not have found or ventured to ourselves. Jimena was a great guide - lots of passion for her hometown and also for local food/restaurants.
