A truly incredible food tour. We tried the most delicious dishes and our guide Luis was very knowledgeable, energetic and fun - making the experience even better! We got to walk Polanco and learn more about the neighborhood and what makes it so popular. We visited 7 different places including a chocolate shop with unique and tasty chocolates and I felt very satisfied with the portions. What made this tour even better was how vegetarian-friendly it was. I was able to try a vegetarian dish at every single place and each one was amazing. I would very much recommend this tour if you want to experience the amazing cuisine Mexico City has to offer. It was a well-organized, informative and entertaining.

The other reviews are not lying! Such a great tour with an extremely knowledgeable, funny and engaging guide. There were 7 stops in total, and although that sounds like too much, we were perfectly satisfied afterwards and felt like we had eaten the perfect amount for a meal. Mexico City has some of the best food in the world and should not be missed!

A great way to experience an astonishing breadth of Mexican cuisine. Interesting contemporary and historical cultural insights from our guide, who is a professor in the culinary arts. She is personally passionate about sharing Mexican cuisine with the world, and a warm, friendly storyteller. We enjoyed every minute and every mouthful!
