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!
My tour was awesome and my guide was amazing ! I Totally enjoyed my day ty Grazelle : )
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!

Mariana was our guide-so knowledgeable . Perfect mix of food and history. Really enjoyed this tour.
i highly recommend the Historic Center Food Tour in Mexico City. My guide, Gloria, obviously loves what she does and is knowledgeable in both Mexican food and history. The food was both challenging and delicious with plenty of surprises. Adventurous and fun!
Very interesting tour. The food choices were excellent and the tour hosts very knowledgeable.
We loved the tour, eveything was great, food, places, and the best our tour guide he was very nice and we enjoyed the whole time with him.
We had an amazing time.
I was hoping there would be more people in the group as these events are usually more fun with a group. I was on my own, and no one else showed up. That's not the fault of the company but it made the day less interesting. On the other hand I felt the guides were really knowledgeable and we did accomplish a lot. I set out to try as much interesting street food as possible and I certainly did. I decided to take the tour in English, even though I speak Spanish as well, and I sort of regretted it. There were two guides and the main one spoke English with a thick accent so I often had to ask her to repeat herself or to translate into Spanish for me. That's not a criticism as much as an observation. she was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. For anyone who does speak Spanish I have a feeling the tour is more enjoyable in Spanish. One final note. Our last stop was Dulceria Celaya, which was wonderful but I wish we had had the opportunity to sample at least two or three small items rather than just one.

On April 19th, 2016 at 12 noon, my travel partner and myself had a Historic Center Food Tour booked with Sabores Mexico Food Tours booking reference : BR-566839509. We were to meet at a restaurant Oaxaca en Mexico Luis Moyà 59, Centro
We literally had walked a marathon for over a mile only to fine out no such restaurant existed. The street was correct but the number 59 was not to be found. We asked a couple of police for direction. We not only lost our money of 166.00 but also the disappointment thinking this as a scam. Do Not Book with this company!
