Great food tour. Learned a lot about local foods, and sampled a variety of dishes at different restaurants. Guide was very informative and food was delicious! I recommend this tour!

My guide, Amaya, was excellent, as she has a degree in culinary engineering. We started with the farmer's market, identifying some important basic ingredients used in foods I would be tasting. That was a wonderful part of the tour, just seeing the action and foods of the market.

The dishes were superb and delicate! I highly recommend the tour and look forward to doing it again. Karen

The highlight of my Guadalajara trip! I always love a food tour and this one was particularly amazing. As someone who only knows basic Spanish it was good to be able to try things from the menu that alone I would have ignored because I had no idea what it was. I ate so much that day and loved all of it! I think my personal favourite was the rose petal quesadilla with the berry margarita from La Mata Tinta a little funky restaurant putting a fresh twist on the Mexican classics. It wasn't just the food that was great though, my tour guide was incredible and even went the extra mile and helped me once the tour was finished to find a taxi back to my hostel. This tour was totally worth the food coma at the end of the day!

HIGHLY recommended. We have done several "food tours" in the USA and Mexico and this by far was the best one. Tour guide was very informative, food was delicious and Tlaquepaque is beautiful. If you have to choose one, do it!
