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!

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!

Great introduction to Mexico City through culinary experience. We visited six eateries. My favorite was the street vendor Food was most recognizable to me and the Dessert at the Food Market. They also served quite exotic dishes and I was brave enough to eat it!
