The food was fantastic and more than sufficient - I've left food tours hungry before, but not on this one.

I enormously enjoyed this well guided, explained and tastefully tour. My 2 sons of 14 and 15 found it wonderful as well. I would suggest you have this tour as early as possible in your holiday so that you really learn what is there to be found in the excellent local restaurants.
Just a tip: don't have breakfast that day.

Me and my husband took the tour on our first day in Mexico City in December, we thought it would be a good chance to do something different, get our bearings and see how safe it really is walking around the city. We had an amazing day and the guide was fantastic. At first we were the only people on the tour, then a family ranging from age 2 to 70 turned up a day early for their tour. The guide was very accommodating and managed to adapt to include them on our tour.
We walked for miles and learnt a lot about Mexican history during the tour but it was nice and chilled at the same time. We like beer and the guide was more than happy to get us different local drinks to go with the food to get the full experience.Watch out for the grasshopper salsa in the market!
My husband was very ill at the time, with a bug from the flight over and the guide took us to a doctors after the tour and stayed with us to translate as the doctor did not speak English. We were so grateful for her help!
I would recommend this to anyone that wants to explore Mexico City and likes eating!

Really enjoyed our tour so informative and fun - Grace is an excellent guide. What I especially liked was how varied the tour was from a market, to cantinas and lots in between. Warning start out on an empty tummy!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Highly recommended. It's a walking tour in the sense that you stop by different places to try a single dish and then walk to the next, stopping by a market, a street food vendor, and a cantina, doing tastings at each. It's focus is very much of traditional Mexican cuisine--if you're after a more contemporary approach, the same company offers another tour that might be a better fit. It really helped demystify some of Mexican cuisine, and I now know what a good mole sauce should taste like and have been to several restaurants with menus that would otherwise be intimidating for a non-native speaker. Same with a popular street food where the specialty is ceviche seafood--not the type of thing that one might normally be able to order without some risk, but this one was a highlight for several in our group. The tour is well paced, and although we were full by the end it was overdone because each stop is only a smallish plate. All the tastings are optional, so if there's something you're not feeling you don't have to eat it. And they can accommodate vegetarian preferences, etc, with advance warning. If you're inclined, you can also try some of the more exotic foods like ant larvae and crickets. And, finally, our guide was excellent in all respects.

This tour was great! Tried so many things that I normally wouldn and #39;t and walking around we were told of the history and stories of particular places of interest as we went past. The markets were a highlight with so many little things to see and taste!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We had a wonderful time on our food tour last week. The tour was informative, fun and above all delicious! Amazing variety of culinary experiences with great background on who grows and makes the food and what role the different dishes and flavors play in Mexican culture. I recommend this experience highly, and can't wait to return for another tour. Thank you Sabores Mexico!
