Our tour guide, Paloma was very knowledgeable and very interested in food. A great walk through parts of Mexico City.
We would highly recommend this tour. Do NOT eat beforehand and be ready for delicious tastings.

Wonderful food tasting tour! Lizbeth was an extraordinary tour guide! She explained vey well the history of Mexico and how each place that we visited was originally created and developed through the years. I never thought that we are going to taste a variety of food and to visit the Amazing San Juan Market, which I had the opportunity to buy fresh fruits. I tried the drink Mezcal for the first time and it was strong, but good. I loved how we ended the tour in a candy store. I truly recommended!

Our tour guide, Lizbeth Mata was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Food portion was just right and sometimes I couldn't finish the food because it was a lot. Drinks complimented the food tastings very well. I highly recommend doing this tour and if you get Lizbeth, you are in for a treat! Thank you for an amazing food tour!!!

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!
